Designed in a country-club style by PGA professional Gordon Cunningham, Woodbine Golf Course welcomes linkspeople with 6,020 yards of challenging tracts populated with bentgrass tees, fairways, and greens. The layout’s five ponds, natural-grass preservation areas, and clusters of grabby-branched trees have beckoned both low- and high-handicap golfers for nearly a quarter of a century. A contorted fairway and aquatic hazard make the 14th hole the course’s hardest, and the 4th hole ranks second hardest with a tricky dogleg left whose elbow hosts a sand bunker that lures distractible golfers with a siren song of sandcastles. 

After games, golfers can retreat to Woodbine's clubhouse. At the Timber Restaurant and Bar, flat-screen TVs flicker above a long wooden bar, diners feast on pasta and pot roast, and a stone fireplace provides the ideal backdrop for tales about 9-irons that transformed into 10-irons with hard work and a little gumption.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course

  • Length of 6,020 yards

  • Two tee options

Golf professional Ben Mutz pioneered his signature method of golf instruction in 1987 and continues to shower pupils with nuggets of knowledge honed from years of teaching the game. The incisive ace has penned multiple instructional tomes, including one titled The Five Objectives of a Successful Golf Swing. Ben tailors the curriculum to the golfletic needs of his charges, from smoothing out putting strokes to teaching newcomers the relative advantages that distinguish a 9 iron from a car antenna. Lessons are typically held one-on-one or in small groups to ensure individualized attention.

A stable of 14 golf simulators lines the walls of Indoor Golf Links of America’s sleek facility, enveloping an open space that feels more like a lively sports bar than a posh country club. Each simulator occupies its own private stall with an adjacent sitting area and a table, where duffers can tend to succulent burgers, piping-hot pizzas, and drinks from the full-service bar a safe distance from whizzing golf balls and 6-irons that have a reputation for covertly unscrewing saltshakers. The simulators’ immense screens whisk duffers to digital reconstructions of legendary courses, allowing them to brave the coastal crags of Pebble Beach or the charging koala bears of Royal Melbourne Golf Club. Golfers struggling with their pendulous form can improve wrist movements at the foosball table, pinpoint precision during a round of shuffleboard, or live vicariously through the professional athletes broadcast on one of the studio’s 16 big-screen TVs.

As soon as you walk in, you can tell Bear Paddle Swim School was designed to welcome children. The walls are painted with cartoon bears dressed in flippers and swim trunks, and the club interior's splashes of neon blue and green evoke a technicolor ocean. Then, of course, there's the indoor, saltwater pool, perhaps the most welcoming fixture of all. A pleasant 90 degrees year-round, it ensconces children in warmth as they improve their swim skills in the school's small classes. Available at eight levels, lessons accommodate a wide range of ages and abilities, covering skills from paddling and floating through competitive breaststroke and gold medal-wearing.

Most importantly, each lesson is taught by a trained teacher who is CPR-certified and 18 years of age or older. Teachers employ story based lessons and use small class sizes to help keep youngsters engaged. And while children are encouraged to learn at their own individual pace, skill patch rewards are given to honor swimming achievements, so that children stay motivated to learn.
