Designed with the input of former US Ryder Cup team captain and 1983 PGA Championship winner Hal Sutton, Olde Oaks Golf Club’s 27-hole golf course weaves through 34 acres of wooded terrain teeming with ponds and streams. All three 18-hole combinations span more than 7,000 yards from the farthest tees, though the course’s open fairways offer plenty of space for golfers to unsheathe their driver or airdrop golf balls from remote-control helicopters. Though all three nine-hole layouts showcase plenty of natural hazards that add challenge to rounds, the Cypress and Meadow courses prominently feature ponds and streams, including difficult forced carries on both Meadow’s seventh and eight holes and Cypress’s fourth.
Before rounds, golfers can warm up at Olde Oaks Golf Club’s recently revamped driving range and head to The Grille at Olde Oaks after the round’s final putt and strut to enjoy the social trappings of a full-service bar, burgers, and two televisions.
Course at a Glance:
Board-certified dermatologists Josephine M. Futrell and Sarah E. Glorioso take a highly scientific approach to treating the body’s biggest, most visible organ. With degrees in immunology and biomedical engineering to back up more than 20 years of medical experience, the duo of epidermal experts maintains the skin’s youthful allure with intense pulsed light and lasers, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots while destroying oncoming asteroids. They also wield an arsenal of antioxidant-enriched skincare products from free-radical enemies such as SkinCeuticals and Vivité, whose creams and serums lighten complexions with vitamins gathered from natural plant sources. Botox injections, chemical peels, and tattoo-removal treatments round out Ark-La-Tex Dermatology’s expansive menu of services.
Doctors L. Gregory Blanton and Scott Robertson promote well-being and beauty for women inside and out through gynecological and obstetrical care and medical spa services. Aiding in all phases of womanhood—including annual checkups, pregnancy, and menopause—the doctors tend not only to health, but also to aesthetic needs. Facial treatments including peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning help treat acne, signs of aging, and dull skin. Skilled technicians wield Cutera's CoolGlide laser to target errant vessels, from wispy spider veins to darker blue reticular veins. Meanwhile, FDA-approved injectables help erase fine lines and undo scarring.
The optical experts at Clifton Eye Center examine peepers and correct blurry vision with prescription lenses couched in designer frames. During a new-patient comprehensive exam ($110), a skilled optometrist evaluates eyes' focus, accuracy, and reactivity to light or compliments. Patrons with a prescription in hand can acquire sight correctors such as single-vision plastic lenses ($60) in frames by Cole Haan ($172.50–$185) or Michael Kors ($125–$167.50). Visitors can explore parallel racks of designer eyewear, selecting frames such as petite-fit BCBG Max Azria frames ($172.50–$197.50) that flatter faces without pinching noses or elbowing ears.
Meadow Lake Golf Club's serene and well-groomed greens and fairways have challenged golfers of all skill levels with a formidable variety of shots since 1959. Commandeer a golf cart with wedges, drivers, and brassies in tow as you cruise past lagoons and suspiciously realistic rubber duckies along Meadow Lake's lush par 72 course, which flaunts a tree-lined front and a more spacious fairway on the back nine. With four par 3 holes and 10 par 4s, Meadow Lake elicits precision performances at each level, similar to Mario and Luigi. Call ahead to reserve your tee time and avoid crowds of misdirected crumpets.
As the name suggests, Anytime Fitness is open all day and all night, seven days a week, 487 days a year.

Besides creating a safe gym atmosphere that fits your life's schedule rather than vice versa, Anytime's hours cuts down on crowds and long lines to use each club's array of cardio equipment, circuit equipment, and free weights.
