At Jim McLean Golf School, all students have an impressive audience: an experienced teacher, and the mountains on the horizon. The school offers group and private lessons on its driving range, chipping green, putting green, and nine-hole course. As clients work on perfecting their swing, JC golf-swing analysis software helps chart weak points and suggest solutions, and the staff doles out personalized pointers on everything from form to what putter would best fit your body. Some packages even bundle classes with lunch and time on the nearby 18-hole Red Ledges course. During the winter, lessons can relocate to an indoor facility in Park City, where a simulator recreates the course experience on an enormous screen.
A graduate of massage and chiropractic school, Dr. Jared Mangum now tends to spines and posterior muscles with services that draw on his medical knowledge and nimble fingers.

Chiropractic adjustments and flexion-distraction treatments, among others, aim to neutralize ailments caused by accrued tension or winters spent on iceberg-riddled waterbeds. While the doctor arrives at a diagnosis, staffers ask that you help yourself to the office’s WiFi and a complimentary beverage.
