Planners seeking a way to get some of their not-so-serious golfers to enjoy the game ap- preciate the variety of golfing options. Along with the opening of Streamsong Black, The Gauntlet is Stream- song's new two-acre putting course, ideal for friendly competition and networking, as well as The Round- about, a free-flowing practice area that includes several green complexes perfect for groups with limited time to recreate. Receptions can be scheduled in these areas to further enhance the guest experience. RESORT TREND: Adventurous Team Building Big Cedar Lodge Ridgedale, Missouri With its scenic setting in the Ozark Mountains, Big Cedar Lodge offers a wide range of exciting team-building options, including the Ozark Olympics. Asserting that "everyone has a little champion inside of them," the resort encourages groups of between 15 and 40 partici- pants to "channel their inner Olympian" while having lots of fun. These games include the Big Cedar pie eating contest, 'patty' toss, cattle rop- ing, seed spitting and hillbilly horseshoes among many other games that get everyone laughing their way to the gold. The resort also has a new adventure beginning this month, with the opening of phase two of the 50,000-square-foot activity center, Fun Mountain. Electric NASCAR-themed Go-Karts and a 30-foot-high ropes course will add to the options for groups to experience the 4,600-acre lakeside resort. RESORT TREND: Poolside Dining DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld Orlando, Florida Among the dining options at DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld, the Barefoot Bar, located at the edge of the Resort's Lagoon Pool, features frozen drinks, fresh fare and poolside snacks in a fami- ly-friendly setting. On those rare occasions when the Orlando weather is not so sunny, the Sonoma Lobby Bar is another fun place to gather for a premium selection of wines, craft beers, and imaginative cocktails, served alongside fla- vorful tapas and small plates with a global twist.
