Sculpted into the landscape a half-century ago, Arrowhead Golf Course enhances the native scenery with dense tree lines that frame every hole and creeks and ponds that bisect lush fairways. The front nine features more straight-on layouts with undulating greens, and the back nine can test any bag of trick sticks with numerous ponds and sweeping doglegs on the final two holes. On the par 4 18th hole, the course?s hardest rated hole, a dogleg left is guarded by an oak tree at the bend that swats shots trying to cut the corner and a fairway-splitting stream that lures thirsty golf balls.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course

  • 6,188 yards from the back tees

  • Four tee options

The ocular experts at Smeelink Optical frame out- of-focus eyes in calibrated corrective lenses and more than 1,000 designer frames from brands including Oakley, Prada, Versace, and Gucci. In approximately 60-minutes, trained optometrists test for a gamut of ocular issues including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and wandering third eyes. Exam results identify the ideal set of corrective lenses ($99+) from a collection of polycarbonate, transitions, polarized, and multifocal fillers to nestle inside a selection of traditional, trendy, and natural-material frames ($99+). Basic frames ($99+) appease minimalist eyes, and vogue Gucci or Coach frames ($189–$369) make seeing feel stylish and fancy, like watching expensively dressed strangers in a hotel lobby.

Nestled among oak trees and apple orchards, the 18-hole, par 72 course at Deer Run Golf Club hosts weeping willows that have been ducking golf balls for more than four decades. Golfers start out at the course’s second-hardest hole, navigating a dogleg left in the last fourth of the fairway and hitting past two bunkers that stand sentry just in front of the green. The second hole, a handicap 18, lets players catch their breath or show off by wearing a diamond-studded blindfold while driving, but the 13th hole—the course’s toughest—gives even the most gifted swingers a challenge with a dogleg right and a green guarded by a slither of fairway-bifurcating water.

Before hitting the course, players warm up at one of the driving range’s 25 hitting stations or by bench-pressing a golf cart. After, they generally decamp to Deer Run's clubhouse, which complete with a hardwood dance floor and fireplace ready for hosting special occasions. Here, up to 250 guests can party away the night, celebrate weddings and other occasions, or host a conference on turning the state of Indiana into a 1,800-hole championship course.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course

  • Total length of 6,964 yards from the back tees

  • Course rating of 74.1 from the back tees

  • Course slope of 134 from the back tees

  • Four sets of tees per hole

Coaches of Renewal Body Bootcamp coaxes hard work, discipline, and buckets of sweat from fitness-seekers during her intense, full-body workouts. One of her specialties is TRX resistance training, which involves suspending students by their arms, legs, and torsos from straps and harnesses dangling from the ceiling. Exercises require participants to fight gravity and their own body weight to build muscle. Coaches sometimes combines TRX with Pilates core-strengthening work or a rigorous plyometric regimen, mixing up workout routines daily to maximize effectiveness. In addition to physical training, she supplies students with nutritional counseling that measures appropriate caloric intake by the day, creating balanced diets that supply ample energy without extra carbs, fats, or whatever compound butter is made of.
