Mare Island Golf Club, whose 1892 founding makes it one of the oldest courses in the country, attracts golfers with breathtaking island scenery. Built near old Marine barracks, the course?which wasn't expanded into an 18-hole layout until 2000?originally sported sand greens, dry fairways, and a cast of unusual inhabitants including a Marine lieutenant's horse, who was drawn to the grounds by career aspirations of becoming a golf cart.
Today, the par-70 course begins with nine traditional, tree-lined holes before opening up on the back nine with a links-style layout designed by renowned Pacific Rim architect Robin Nelson. As golfers swing toward distant greens, views of San Pablo Bay and?on a clear day?the Golden Gate Bridge appear from certain vantages and sand-trap oases.
To perfect a backswing or spell out a marriage proposal with golf balls, players head to the 225-yard driving range with a bucket of balls. Patrons should arrive at least 20 minutes before tee times and can grab a bite in the restaurant or look for one of the 10 ammunition bunkers scattered throughout the course, which serve as a reminder of its connection to the military during World War I and II.
Golf legend Arnold Palmer, known in the cleated world as the King and winner of the PGA Tour's Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, designed the undulating ryegrass fairways at Hiddenbrooke Golf Club. Ranked as one of Golf Digest’s Readers’ Choice Top 50 Public Courses in 2009, the course unfolds scenic views of rolling hills as players give their balls detailed directions, hand them compasses and trail mix, and send them hiking toward the pin. The 12th hole’s pin challenges orbs with one of the toughest locations on the course, and eight sand bunkers guard three sides of the 18th hole’s green. After working up a sweat, swingers can remove their gloves and Kevlar vests and celebrate or commiserate their score at The Grille, where diners gaze out over the greens while munching sandwiches and quaffing beer.

There's a lot that goes into and comes out of martial arts. At Dae Han Martial Arts Academy, they dedicate themselves to giving students the complete package. Besides the techniques of Korean martial arts, they instill students with respect, humility, discipline, and perseverance. Fitness and self-defense skills, of course, are accrued, as well. Their instructors enact this holistic system in an immaculate facility laid with padded flooring and lined with mirrors. In that welcoming environment, they lead classes open to everyone, dividing sessions into age groups for students aged 4 and older.
Master Lonny Louie, the owner of Fitness Innovations & Tae Kwon Do (FIT) has been teaching martial arts for more than 35 years. He and the FIT crew understand that different students have different needs, so they have developed multiple programs to accommodate athletes who want to train for competition, fun, or fitness. Instructors hold tae kwon do classes that equip students with self-defense and combat techniques while also focusing on discipline, respect, and confidence. They also hold kickboxing and fitness-kickboxing classes, which use muay thai principles to help students defend themselves and burn calories.
