In 2011, Brandon Richardson became a Class A PGA Instructor and a nominee for the Oregon Chapter PGA Teacher of the Year award. These prestigious accolades did not come easily; they were the culmination of more than two decades of teaching and professional play that included stints on the Nationwide Tour. As Golf with Freedom’s founder and director of coaching, Brandon's coaching style allows golfers to grow and develop as a golfer within an environment free of judgment or evaluation, creating a sense of calm toward misbehaving 9-irons. His programs—which range from private coaching classes to small-group and women-only workshops—aim to increase one's ability to self-coach by making swing adjustments on the fly or subbing in a stunt double for help with a particularly difficult lie.
Dental hygienists at SouthWest Dental unite more than 20 years of experience to safeguarded smiles with comprehensive exams and bleaching services. During an initial assessment ($68), a dental expert thoroughly inspects and x-rays ($110) teeth to glean a clear sense of their condition and determine their value on the tooth-fairy stock market. Next, a thorough scrub-down and polishing ($85) ensures a silken-smooth grin. Patients continue oral ablutions in the comfort of their homes with a bleaching kit ($199) composed of trays and a tube of whitening solution. Chompers luxuriate in trays for 30 minutes at a time, allowing clients to kick back as bleaching agents battle stains from coffee, wine, and Rorschach blots.
At both of Cimarron Golf Resort's John Fought?designed courses, one massive, unblinking spectator watches on: the San Jacinto Mountain Range. Its massive rockfaces jut above the fairways and greens, adding visual drama to every westward drive and putt. Nodding to those rocky outcrops with its name, the championship-length Boulder course challenges golfers with 6,782 open yards, including a formidable 569-yard, par-five 18th hole. At the Boulder's sibling course, the Pebble, 17 par-threes tempt players with 17 chances for a hole-in-one. Before any round, a driving range with five target greens hosts swing rehearsals, on-site golf lessons, and clinics that help golfers hit farther and yell "Fore!" louder.

The snow-capped peaks of the San Jacinto Mountains peer over the treeline, creating a scenic backdrop to Cathedral Canyon Golf Club’s 18-hole course. Designed by prolific California course architect David Rainville—in consultation with Hall of Famer Billy Casper—the course winds across more than 6,500 yards dotted with ponds that reflect the distant mountains and the fearful grimaces of birds as they evade speeding tee shots. To prepare their swings for their next round, golfers can warm up at the club’s driving range or schedule a lesson with PGA Class A instructor Steve Creps.
