Golfing takes place year round at Stonebridge Golf Course, a lovely course with country club facilities in East Memphis. Located out east on I-40, this course will give you that day-in-the-country feeling. While here, you can also improve your skills on the driving range or the putting green. The course is located close to the popular Wolfchase Galleria, so you can drop your spouse off for a day of shopping, then hit the links. Because the place is so popular, you should reserve your tee time at least five days in advance. Closed only on Christmas Day.
Here, golfers can choose between playing on a full-scale golf course, practicing on a driving range or just putting around a miniature golf circuit. The more energetic might choose the go-karts or bumper boats. Kiddie rides include a train and Ferris wheel, and an entire children's birthday party can be hosted in the party room.
Bring your own equipment or rent everything you need at the clubhouse and pro-shop. The park has six themed playing areas that you can explore for the whole day. Participants must be 10 years old or older. If you are on your own, staff will team you up in open groups, based on skill level and experience. Capture your opponent's flag and defend your own in the jungle, village, or Wild West playing fields. Long pants and long sleeves are recommended, as well as goggles.

The Shelby Farms Greenline is a trail that connects Shelby Farms Park and Midtown Memphis. It spans 6.5 miles (10.5 kilometers) and is used by young and old alike for recreation and transportation.

Get some fresh air and battle it out with friends, family, or coworkers at Battlefront Lasertag & Paintball. Play paintball with top-of-the-line equipment, running through the woods to capture the opposing team's flag. If the thought of paintball welts is too much for you, opt for a game of laser tag, which offers the same excitement as paintball, without the pain of getting hit. It's a great spot to host your next birthday party or a team building outing.
Golf & Games Family Park offers fun for kids of all ages. There is miniature golf, of course, but you can also try your luck at the batting cages, in the go-karts or at a game of laser tag. For the kids, there is the fun track for young drivers, plus bumper boats and a host of age-appropriate rides. In business in Memphis for 35 years, this park specializes in group outings such as company picnics.

Raccoons wander freely around this nature preserve and educational facility. The Lichterman family after whom the center is named willed their land to the city years ago, and portions of the block have since been developed into a shopping center, St. Francis Hospital and an apartment building. However, this 65-acre park still provides sanctuary for local wildlife. Children can see here how injured animals are treated and prepared for return to the wild. While the original Lichterman home that housed exhibits and administrative offices burned down a few years ago, most of the facility has been restored.
In a city as flat as Memphis, the rolling hills of the Galloway Municipal Golf Course are unusual and refreshing. Many golfers find this course the most fun to play because of the variations in the terrain. Reservations are taken, but not required for this public course.
