Designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer, Crescent Pointe Golf Club’s 18-hole, 6,773-yard course takes golfers on a journey through the shadows of skyscraping pines and oaks amid the unfurled petals of blooming magnolias. Generous fairways provide ample runways for flush drives and golf-obsessed extra terrestrials, and the course compensates with dramatically sloped, elevated greens with enough subtle breaks to give any smooth-putting golflete a case of the yips. The par 71 presents birdie opportunities at all three of its par 5's, though each one will challenge club-flailing composure with forced-carry water hazards. Expansive beach bunkers threaten to ensnare wayward balls on several holes, where conservative players would be wise to simply wedge the ball back into the fairway and pay a one-stroke fealty to their despotic sand-trap rakes. To prepare for rounds, divoteers can straighten out unsightly slices and snap-hooks at the club’s driving range or sign up for a lesson with PGA professional Stephen Neville.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer
  • Length of 6,773 yards from the farthest tees
  • Three tee options available
  • Link to scorecard

Palmetto Running Company's sure-footed staff members treat fellow trotters to comprehensive shoe fittings before shielding them in high-performing gear. Fittings include careful measurements, a static foot scan, and two brief jogging evaluations to help knowledgeable team members recommend shoes suited to each athlete's gait and striking pattern. Toes grip, arch, and jam to live karaoke inside the roomy toe box of Saucony's Hattori kicks ($80), and a pair of Brooks' Adrenaline sneakers ($100) supports the heel with its award-winning design and signature DNA technology. Before jetting off in a pair of the Asics Gel-Kayano ($140), drain 50 ounces of pure water or grape-flavored antelope sweat from the BPA-free reservoir in a CamelBak Fairfax backpack ($49). Wicking moisture from panting skin, Zensah compression sleeves ($39.99) flood stifled muscles with oxygenated blood during long runs and postworkout recovery sessions, and the colorful boutique soothes hard-working pavement pounders with blister balms from Body Glide or complimentary footbaths filled with chicken-noodle soup.

With a sea of bent grass greens, picturesque ponds, and strategically placed hazards, Rose Hill's immaculate course provides championship-level challenges for putting pilgrims. Whether you’re a seasoned golfing veteran or a neophyte just learning the proper way to wear a plaid monocle, Rose Hill's 1,250-yard, par-3 golf course welcomes all skill levels. Traverse and travail through the challenges with a friend, a loved one, or a pale-eyed stranger that resembles Rutger Hauer. After all, golf with friends is the best kind of bonding. There's nothing like being out in the open air, hearing the wind blow through the beautiful old trees lining the well-groomed fairways, and refusing to grant your compadres mulligans. The satisfaction of a well-played hole is amplified by the enjoyment you get from your partner's three-shot spectacle in the woodsy rough. If golf is your cup of tee, call ahead to schedule your tee time.

The Rock Lobster ($9), a martini blended from whiskey, black-raspberry liqueur, and cranberry juice, blushes against the bar's gray walls like an embarrassed bride, and listless stomachs perk up with the Breakfast salad ($9), a bed of spinach piled to the leafy heavens with bacon, garlic toast, and an over-easy egg. The restaurant's doughsmiths also engineer a selection of gourmet pizzas ($12–$15) mounded with eclectic toppings such as tequila-marinated tomatoes, crab, and shaved steak.
