The Bogey Golf Tour grants golfers a chance to take to the links and compete against fellow amateurs in tournaments scheduled at some of the finest courses in the London, Windsor, Detroit, and Kitchener/Waterloo areas. At each event, scratch golfers compete in the Birdie division, 0–15 handicaps square off in the Par division, and 16+ handicappers trade pinpoint approaches and sequined divot tools in the Bogey division. The top five finishers in each division receive prize money—which can be paid out in gift certificates or cash—and the Tour also holds prize competitions for longest drive, closest to the pin, and 3-iron jousting. The Tour publishes the results from each tournament in local newspapers, and players can chart the peaks and valleys of their careers on the Tour Members list, which compiles all of their tournament results. Along with providing an outlet for amateur golfers to exercise their long-suppressed competitive side, the Tour and its sponsors have raised $74,000 for various area charities since 2003.
The Athletic Club aspires to reach the upper echelon of fitness facilities, leading specialty classes within upscale workout environs. Limbs lengthen and spines straighten thanks to an extensive selection of yoga classes, including Anti-Gravity Yoga, which encourages participants to spite earthly forces while in inverted positions using an anti-gravity hammock. Dance fitness classes such as Zumba and African Movement fuse cardio movements to energetic rhythms. Core-sculpting and strength classes such as Cardio Barbell tone physiques without resorting to monster-truck-tire tossing competitions. Exercise enthusiasts can access the merits of cardio and strength equipment before and after classes at each location. Class schedules span seven days a week with early morning through evening sessions, and the Amherstburg club also offers a schedule of aquatics classes. Further amenities include childcare, along with a juice bar, steam rooms, and saunas.
Body Kneads specializes in wringing unhealthiness from minds and bodies with massage and alternative health therapies, including far-infrared radiant heat, or FIR, sauna therapy. A naturally occurring form of light, far infrared penetrates 2 to 3 inches into the body, where it converts to heat, much like natural sunlight but without the harmful effects of UV radiation or the risk of farmers' tan. Unlike traditional saunas, the FIR sauna directly heats the body from within instead of raising the outer air temperature, resulting in a deeper level of heating. It also can create a more comfortable sauna experience, as the lack of humidity can make breathing easier and maintains a cleaner environment. FIR sauna therapy is believed to have many health benefits, including improved circulation, detoxification through sweating, and conditioning the body for volcano expeditions. Participants may wear whatever they feel most comfortable in, from bathing suits to jodhpurs, and may relax with music or reading material.
Though the layout is welcoming to all golfers—from weekend warriors to players with scratch handicaps—danger is never far at Rattle Run Golf Course. Pine forests are an ever-present threat, lurking just outside the primary cut of rough, beyond most of the greens, and in flashbacks triggered by pine-scented air fresheners. Meanwhile, 78 bunkers and several water hazards enter the picture on 15 of the 18 holes, ensnaring many golfers who play more aggressively than skill and conditions permit. On the other hand, those golfers who can keep their golf balls on the short grass likely find these rugged natural features to be picturesque, and choose to admire their beauty over drinks on the clubhouse's wrap-around balcony.
