The 18-hole Reidy Creek Golf Course covers 2,582 yards in the rugged hills of Escondido, supplying guests with a scenic backdrop for club-based revelry. The rolling terrain of the par 54 course—intertwined with manmade obstacles such as sculpted bunkers, sinuous lakes, and wind—challenges golfers as they attempt holes-in-one. The distinctive course, designed by the notable engineers at Cal Olson Golf Architecture not to contain any two identical holes, contains a golf shop, café, and golf clinics taught by PGA professionals.

Awarded a spot on Bicycle Retailer's Top 100 Bicycle Retailers 2010 list, Nytro Multisport's knowledgeable staff of bicycle mechanics diagnoses and repairs two-wheeled troubles. During the basic tune-up, a team of pedal-pod pediatricians tenderly tends to your velocipede with a drive-train lube and adjustment, inspection and adjustment of front and rear brakes, an axel-skewers and bolts inspection and tightening, and a tire and tire-pressure check. Furthermore, front and rear hubs, seat-clamp bolt, seat-binder bolt, and stem-clamp bolts are all adequately adjusted. Inspection of pedal crank-arm attachments, a quick frame clean, and a lollipop for well-behaved bicycles completes the comprehensive check-up. With mechanics versed in bicycle bereavements of all types, Nytro cares for bicycles in-house and usually have repairs complete in one to three days, lessening the chance of owners falling prey to segway seduction. Parts are not included.
Kempo’s movement patterns may look beautiful—fluid, swooping kicks, graceful evasions, smooth takedowns—but underneath the beauty lies a tradition nearly 2,000 years old. Since 1968, the instructors at United Studios of Self Defense have armed students with these techniques, leading classes where participants of all ages and skill levels soak up fighting skill while galvanizing self-confidence.
But before they can share their tactics and Mortal Kombat cheat codes, the instructors themselves must be trained. Each instructor who cinches the black belt around their waist has graduated with honors from the Studio’s own rigorous training academy. The training doesn’t stop there; every week they meet with the founder himself, 10th-degree black belt Charles Mattera, who refines their strategies and instills them with advanced techniques.
Adventure Ski & Snowboard School helps skiers and snowboarders hone their mountain-shredding skills far away from snow-capped peaks with a rolling-carpet ski machine. Similar to a treadmill, the machine simulates the smooth, slippery surface of a powder-dusted slope, allowing riders to practice balancing and controlled carving. As guests glide over the endless slope, a padded, waist-high horizontal bar offers them a safety net when they attempt unfamiliar techniques, cheered on by one of the school's seasoned instructors.
Adventure Ski & Snowboard School is a member of both the Professional Ski Instructors of America and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors, a testament to their off-slope training methods, much like the frequent attempts of abominable snowmen to infiltrate their facility.
