But there are lots of ways for meeting participants to get active and engaged. The property offers 27 holes of golf, which makes it a popular place for everything from competitive tournaments to night golf, foot golf and other fun activities. There are also two swimming pools, a fitness center, clay tennis courts, biking trails, horseshoes and volleyball. Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa Birmingham, Alabama When a property boasts the fifth-longest golf course in the world and one of the 50-best golf courses in America, it's obvious that most meeting groups are going to want a tournament or other activity out on the greens. But even for those who don't want to try their skills on this Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail venue, there are lots of other ways to get active, such as badminton, tennis, biking and hiking the nature trail. Additional on-site amenities include a full-ser- vice spa, indoor and outdoor saltwater pools with bar ser- vice, waterfalls and a slide. The Pearl Rosemary Beach, Florida An intimate, 55-room boutique in South Walton, The Pearl Hotel sits along a 26-mile stretch of sugar-white sand beaches in Northwest Florida. On the upper deck of the hotel lies the re- cently renovated Havana Beach Rooftop Lounge, where guests can enjoy scenic views of the Gulf at communal tables, private cabanas, and seating around two mobile fire pits. Groups can find zen together during a rooftop yoga class, or enjoy a custom craft cocktail class taught at the rooftop bar. The Pearl Hotel also ties in the story line of its Hemingway-inspired Cuban heritage through cultural cooking classes and rum tastings, as well as scheduling any "off-menu" items that groups may request.
