Though the course at Hawk?s Tail of Greenfield has been a golfing oasis since 1927, it looks a little different than it did in the roaring '20s. For one, the name on the marquee is different: it was called Greenfield Country Club for many years. Cart paths?which wouldn't have been around in the very early years?were repaved in 2001, and a fleet of electric golf carts was brought in to replace the aging herd of bag donkeys. And as a finishing touch, owner and head professional Mr. Farrer added a fireplace on the outdoor patio, providing a welcoming space for golfers to gather round after a fun-filled round.

The staff at Simply Smile Dentistry knows that impending dental work tends to trigger anxiety in patients. Take, for example, a client named Brandon, who faced both a troublesome tooth and insurance edging closer to expiration. To help ease Brandon's dilemma, the staff prioritized his appointment, getting him in quickly enough so he'd still be covered by his insurance. The team is also apt to relax nervous patients with sedation dentistry. This consideration for each patient pervades Simply Smile's services. Led by dentist Dr. Samuel J. Bacon, the staff utilizes technology such as intra-oral imaging, digital x-rays, and ViziLite oral-cancer screenings to catch mouth maladies early. The results guide each cleaning as well as any recommendations for dental repairs. Dr. Bacon and his team also enhance smiles with cosmetic treatments, including Invisalign, same-day crowns, and Zoom! whitening, which brightens teeth discolored from sucking the juices out of carrots.
Doctor of Chiropractic Det James is a firm believer in the body's natural healing power. That is why he founded Geist Chiropractic nearly two decades ago, and why he continues to eschew drugs and surgery in favor of getting to the root of patients' problems with multidisciplinary chiropractic care. Alongside Dr. Urvi Vyas, Dr. James complements his spinal adjustments with massage therapy, exercise counseling, and nutritional counseling.
The earth-toned office fosters a feeling of calm by avoiding bright lights and loud machines. Treatment rooms are stocked with special adjusting tables for infants, children, and pregnant women, allowing the chiropractors to rid bodies of subluxations for more comfortable pregnancies and less crotchety childhoods.
Director Kara Reibel helms a staff of instructors who help students tone core muscles with an arsenal of more than 500 mat and Pilates-machine techniques. Certified in Pilates by the PhysicalMind Institute, Kara and her instructors lead private, semiprivate, and small-group classes in a variety of Pilates methods, including reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, and ladder-barrel training. To ensure that each individual gets personalized instruction during reformer sessions, Kara caps these classes at four students or one fitness-conscious octopus, and teaches students to use their body weight as resistance during mat classes that lengthen and tone core muscles.
Though it only has 9 greens and fairways, Balmoral Golf Club can easily be treated as a full 18-hole course. Each of the 9 holes has 2 completely separate tee boxes, which extend from as short as 130 yards to as long as 443. While the latter isn't actually all that long by most standards, the overall effect welcomes golfers of all levels. The challenging course doesn't force beginners and shorter hitters out of their comfort zones, while more experienced players have plenty of room to polish swings. At the culmination of a 9- or 18-hole round or 26.2-hole marathon, players can head into the stately clubhouse, which anchors the 45-acre grounds with private locker rooms and a relaxation deck.
