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. ______________ Operating out of five courses throughout the greater San Diego area, JC Golf's Intro2Golf program fosters pin-hunting prowess with a shrewd blend of hands-on instruction, individual practice, and on-course experience designed to introduce the basics of golf to beginners. During the pressure-free sessions, JC Golf equips pupils with all the necessary equipment, saving neophytes the hassle of rustling up their own sets of clubs or graphite shaft bananas. Three additional buckets of range balls grant golfers the spherical tools necessary to implant newly learned concepts into muscle memory. The package also allows clubbers to loop the links at their chosen course twice after 4 p.m. for an additional $10 per round, allowing them to test their mettle amid the brambly hazards and sand-trap curmudgeons found on every real course.

The Earth Day Warrior Challenge lets racers exercise both brain and body with a slew of carbon-neutral obstacles. Runners flip over-sized truck tires, scale an eight-foot wall, and cross balance beams as they conquer each of the course’s fifteen obstacles. Games of tic-tac-toe and giant-sized jacks engage runners' minds as well. Following the race, runners kick back in a celebration village with a DJ, carnival-style games, and a collection of inflatables suitable for both adults and children. Runners can grab grub from a collection of San Diego’s best food trucks, saving banana peels for their next footrace against a gaggle of cartoon characters. A portion of proceeds will be donated to the San Pasqual School Foundation, which helps supplement music, art, and physical education at San Pasqual Union Elementary School.

Every Christmas morning, Jo Davis would run to the tree, eagerly searching her packages in the hopes of finding one large enough to conceal a horse. Jo never discovered a horse, pony, or even a poor man’s horse—a cow—underneath her family's tree, but she pursued her dream of riding by taking lessons and attending summer camps throughout high school. After that, she worked as a wrangler at the summer camp.

Today, Jo directs her own riding school, H&W Riding, at the Hoofs and Woofs Animal Rescue Ranch, a nonprofit rescue center for horses, cats, and dogs. Amid lush vegetation and rolling hills, Jo conducts lessons and camps with the ranch's four lesson horses: Ranger, Charlie, Tonka, and Lil' Dude.
