Nestled within 164 acres of mature pine trees and hardwood forest, the secluded golf course at Quail Ridge Country Club surrounds visitors in natural splendor. Course architect Mark Mungeam of Cornish, Silva, and Mungeam, Inc., designed the fairways to harmonize with the naturally rolling terrain, where occasional stone walls line the edges of what were once farmers’ fields. After teeing off, players choose carefully among their bag’s fairway woods, long irons, and golf-ball-sized blowguns as they confront a number-one handicap first hole whose fairway unfurls over nearly 600 uphill yards. The course doesn’t let up, keeping golfers on their toes right up to the end of each round.

Off the course, players gain the skills needed to meet such challenges by frequenting the chipping area or practice putting green. During lessons held in these practice spots, head teaching pro John Carco harnesses more than 15 years of experience to help students eliminate slice and perfect their swing. The country club’s family center hosts a snack bar where golfers can fuel up for a round, stash their belongings in lockers, or build ball-driving muscles at the fitness center.

Just a hop and a skip from the family center, the club’s 3,200-square-foot outdoor pool entices visitors of all stripes with its widely varied facilities. Athletes zip down 75-foot swim lanes, parents and kids splash in a baby pool with zero-grade entry, and sunbathers bask on more than 4,500 square feet of deck. On four adjacent tennis courts, serves rebound off of Har-Tru clay surfaces, and windscreens keep out distracting breezes and lost pool-goers murmuring "Marco?"

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 66 course
  • Length of 5,426 yards
  • Course rating of 67.9

A Mass Tour Card grants golfers one round of golf at each of six Massachusetts courses. Golfers must pay the cart fee at each course, after which they can steer their steed over the upper Cape Cod charm of The Brookside Club's course or park their cart in the rustic covered bridge at Maplegate Country Club. Quail Ridge Country Club's course takes golfers through scenic conservation land and stone relics of its previous life as a farm.

The nine-hole course at Lombardi's Hillside Country Club challenges clubbers with water hazards on six holes, whereas Bradford Country Club's difficult, par 70 layout tests putting strokes with smooth bentgrass greens. The sixth course, Norwood Country Club, invites players to smash shots and stare down flagsticks across 6,009 yards of relatively flat terrain with medium-sized greens.

Time travel might not be possible yet. But that doesn’t mean you can’t turn back the clocks at Harvard Bowling Lanes, an old-fashioned alley offering 14 candlepin lanes, vintage decor, and the tactile joys of paper-and-pencil scoring. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the old-school facility does a complete 180, transforming itself into a futuristic cosmic bowling alley saturated in colorful lights and music. After any cosmic or traditional bowling session, the alley invites guests to continue the competition in a vibrant onsite arcade that, unfortunately, does not feature old-timey games such as hoop-and-stick and stick-without-hoop.

At Wah Lum Kung Fu of Concord, instructors Andrea Sheffield and Evan Hughes can't rest on their laurels. That's because their style of kung fu—which can trace its storied lineage some 350 years back to China's Shantung province—requires that instructors are recertified every three years. This special certification is done by none other than Grandmaster Pui Chan, the sixth-generation successor of the style, and the only Wah Lum master in the United States.

During classes for adults and children as young as 6, Sheffield and Hughes focus on teaching not only the Wah Lum system's technical curriculum, but also respect, discipline, and control. Students can learn these skills through games, drills, and exercises that keep their minds sharp and their bodies fit. Besides kung fu, clients can find a wealth of health-boosting programs, including two styles of tai chi and the Integrated Wellness class, which combines traditional qi gong movements with modern-day strength and conditioning drills individually modified for each participant's level of ability.

To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating 30 minutes of strength-training drills—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each student's abilities. Then comes 25 minutes of cardio: the trainers might start novice exercisers with a walk on the treadmill or light elliptical training, and challenge more advanced exercisers to high-intensity interval-training sessions for enhanced results.

The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To track ladies' progress toward reaching their goals, the trainers measure their weight and body-fat percentage every two weeks.

Revolution Bodywork opened with the goal of bringing affordable natural healthcare solutions to the whole community. Because treatments and services can be too expensive for many to use as often as they need it, Revolution offers all of its treatments on a sliding scale, allowing clients to choose what they can afford to pay.

These treatments include a separate community acupuncture clinic, nutritional consultations, and massage and bodywork. During community-acupuncture sessions, which take place in a group setting, the practitioner targets various acupoints with tiny needles that stimulate the body's ability to heal itself. Traditional sports and orthopedic massages work alongside craniosacral therapy to relieve pain and enhance emotional well-being. With all these healthcare solutions, Revolution’s wellness experts have seen success in treating a variety of different problems, such as back pain and migraines.
