A love for gulf pulses through the veins of the Mims family, owners of Sunset Golf Club. In the age when the jeep was invented, Mount Rushmore received its finishing touches, and the first paper airplane flew into outer space, C.B. Mims's professional golf career was blazing a trail through such PGA tournaments as the 1941 U.S. Open. While her brother slammed tee shots with the fellas, Bettye Mims Danoff, a touring professional, set out to create a brand-new league for the opposite sex, and in 1950, became 1 of the 11 founding members of the LPGA. Their passion for golf and C.B.'s passion for architecting playing grounds led to the birth of Sunset Golf Club.
Greens management and club selection eventually infused in the Mims DNA, filtering through two subsequent generations that continue to own and operate the nine-hole course to this day. Fifty years of course management saturated with passed down know-how gifts the clan with comprehensive golfing knowledge used to maintain 3,350 yards of bunkers, water hazards, and bermuda-grass greens.
The trainers at Robert Brown Sports Performance don't just blindly assign clients exercises to perform. Instead, they use tests to determine your strength and conditioning levels at the outset of your training. This allows them both to tailor their workouts to your needs and to motivate you to make drastic improvements. In addition to reaching higher performance levels, training can also help athletes limit the likelihood of injuries on the court or field.
Aqua Angels' parent-child swimming classes teach four-month to four-year-old land-limbed kids to cut through the water at the Kirby Creek Indoor Pool. During six 30-minute sessions, mother and Red Cross instructor Alex will lead small groups of parents and children according to her swim syllabus. Aqua Angels' lessons reacquaint children with their previously watery existence in an effort to foster confidence, increase physical strength, and make it possible to easily navigate sewer systems. Doggy-paddling parents need not fear—pools are shallow and easy to navigate.
