Oak Hills Golf Course opened for play in 1969 under the direction of architect Alfred H. Tull, who also helped design such renowned courses as Brandywine, Congressional, and Westchester Country Clubs. The 18-hole layout bears many features that became design traits of Mr. Tull's throughout his illustrious seven-decade career. The course is characterized by dense, tree-lined fairways with curved features, rolling terrain with elevation changes, and large green designs that showcase his inability to draw a perfect circle. Golfers must wield their putters confidently to slay the aggressive greens on holes such as No. 5, a par 3 with a 195-yard tee shot with forced carry over water, and No. 11, with its sharp dogleg fairway and right-to-left sloping green protected by numerous bunkers.
Though a public course, Oak Hillls offers many of the amenities found at a private club. Among these include eight tennis courts and an onsite restaurant, ideal for posting "lost golf ball" signs and celebrating after a day on the fairways.
Course at a Glance * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,317 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 70.3 from the back tees * Slope of 133 from the back tees * Three sets of tees * Scorecard
Seven days a week, Studio M Dance Fitness invites patrons to let go of inhibitions and hone health and wellness through joyful dance workouts such as Zumba, Polynesian hula, and sweat-inducing step classes. Before settling down with her husband and three daughters in Westport, Cook Islands native, Emm Koteka-Wiki, spent 16 years trotting across the globe with her family, teaching dance and fitness classes in each country through which she passed. Today the certified Zumba instructor takes the studio's center stage to guide students of all ages and abilities through workouts that disguise their traditional cardiovascular-exercise qualities with smile-educing dance moves. An inspiring mix of Latin and international beats spill from the sound systems, causing fists to pump, hips to shake, and feet to glide their way over the 3,600-square-foot floating dance floor. For a well-rounded regimen, Studio M Dance Fitness also hosts soothing yoga classes and heart-pumping boot-camp sessions that strengthen muscles and prevent boredom with a mixed syllabus of resistance moves, running exercises, and motivational compliments shouted from megaphones without anyone behind them.
Black Bear Saloon may have all the wood paneling of a Wild West watering hole, but it boasts many modern amenities, including 33 plasma televisions that deliver sports from around the globe thanks to a DirecTV sports package. Cooks keep stomachs fueled for the action with a selection of wraps, sandwiches, and Angus-beef burgers.
After a game has aired, the staff dims the lights and cranks up the volume on the bar’s speaker system and turns the stage over to a live DJ every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. On Saturday, before the rise of the moon transforms the mild-mannered dining room into a dance floor, the saloon hosts the kid-friendly Cub Club. The club’s staffers lead tykes in crafts, games, and Wii activities, which gives parents time to grab a relaxed afternoon meal or nap on the cool floor behind the bar.
LA Boxing’s fight-centric gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, LA Boxing sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym’s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.
