Players have to find peace and serenity while they're on a golf course. The gentle babbling of the Blue River as it cuts through the Bear Chase Golf Club's par 72 Championship course helps golfers uncloud their minds when setting up for booming drives and precise approaches. But Bear Chase Golf Club is more than a place to play a round of golf. A 1,600-square-foot banquet room with attached outdoor patio overlooks the club's 127 acres of swaying trees from alongside the course's 18th hole, where hosts can invite guests to enjoy the fresh air and try to catch passing tee shots during wedding receptions or other celebrations. An onsite pro shop also helps players prepare for future games by pairing them with gear and apparel from trusted brands.

For Dr. Michele Zormeier, one board certification simply was not enough to become a cosmetic surgeon in the fields she most desired—anti-aging and wellness medicine. She holds accreditation from both the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology for head and neck surgery to practice both fields from her eponymous cosmetic-surgery center. Some of her most popular procedures are eyelid lifts and face-lifts, but she complements these surgical procedures with less invasive enhancements. She can give faces a radiant glow by treating skin with custom chemical peels or by hiring helicopters to follow them with a 4,000-watt searchlight. The staff at Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center also masters laser technologies that remove unwanted hair, erase wrinkles, and soften the appearance of scars, and Dr. Zormeier helps hide signs of aging with injectable dermal fillers and Botox.
An all-day pass allows golfers to explore Otter Creek's three nine-hole courses, the North, East, and West; all characterized by narrow fairways, multiple bunkers on almost every hole, and plenty of roughage and foliage to challenge errant shots. The par 5 fifth on the North course, the longest hole at 584 yards, imposes complex obstacles such as a fairway that rises for 200 yards before a slight dogleg right and turkey bone left, leading to dueling bunkers guarding the green with Otter Creek to the right. After piloting the cart to the West course, golfers test their midrange game on the par 3 sixth hole, an uphill iron shot about 200 yards out that leads to an undulated green that moves left to right. Ottter Creek's 27 distinctly different holes allow golfers to practice a variety of shots during a full day of course play, providing enough time for snorkeling in the course's pond to retrieve a hearty supply of golf balls.
Kate Connor is smart: she holds both a bachelor's degree in athletic training and a master's degree in therapeutic kinesiology. Though she could have pursued a physical-therapy career, her passion for mind-body exercise led her to open Zen Fitness. Further proof of her expertise, she has earned certifications from both YogaFit and the American Council on Exercise, along with completing the Reebok Core Pilates training program and the PHI Pilates certification course. She uses her knowledge to train fellow instructors and give clients the tools to sculpt their bodies and minds amid pale-green walls, wooden floors, and mirrors. Their group yoga classes employ Vinyasa and Kundalini techniques that increase strength while cultivating a meditative state of mind. In addition to traditional mat Pilates classes, they also offer challenging Pilates boot-camp classes that employ the Reformer, the Tower, and the Wunda chair. When Kate and her staff aren't working with groups, they offer private sessions in sports training, Pilates, and yoga. Students can fly solo with a trainer or share the session with their most tolerable family members.
