Ed Harris's knowledge of golf could fill a book—and it has, three times over. The PGA pro and author of instructional books that teach golfers about swing dynamics, short-game mastery, and course strategy also shares his expertise in lessons at his eponymous school, which has welcomed high-profile alumni including Clint Eastwood, Alice Cooper, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Private lessons provide personalized programs to improve skills, often using video evaluation to further pinpoint the exact moment the student lost their form and spun into a pirouette. Nine-hole [playing lessons present on-course challenges, and classes designed for juniors teach young players the fundamentals of the game, including how to react when golf carts start bucking.

The family-owned Sun Valley Golf Course cultivates a welcoming atmosphere that sets nerves at ease so that youngsters and beginners can make a stress-free foray into the lifelong game. The par 27 excursion politely omits any tee shot longer than 145 yards, eliminating the trepidation felt on long tee shots over water or asteroid craters at larger venues. Nevertheless, small greens and quick changes in elevation keep even more experienced players on their toes and help them to hone short-game technique. The course's short layout ensures that players average less than 90 minutes for a nine-hole round, leaving plenty of time in the day to polish lucky golf balls.

Its simple course layout makes Sun Valley Golf Course a natural place for young club cadets to take up the game. Junior golf programs led by instructor Mike Cortes help kids to develop proper form at an early age through camps, clinics, and classes.

Course at a Glance:

  • 9-hole, par 27 course
  • Total length of 1,057 yards from the back tees
  • Two sets of tees per hole

Fit Body Boot Camp's seasoned instructors replace drill-sergeant screams with encouraging mantras in their one-hour indoor sessions that welcome clients of all fitness levels. During sessions, trainers round out weightlifting sessions, resistance drills, and core workouts with cardio routines such as light running and obstacle courses. They switch up session routines regularly to ensure courses are never the same from day to day, leading wild-card days that incorporate hiking, crawling, and high-stakes Uno games played with 50-pound cards. In addition to bolstering workouts with nutrition guidance, trainers work to cultivate an atmosphere of positive camaraderie designed to push campers further toward their weight-loss goals.

The patter of gloves against heavy bags and the paced breathing of circling sparring partners fills The Boxing Club with energy. That's amplified by trainers, who lead classes in everything from cycling to kickboxing. There's muay thai, for example, an MMA fighting style that torches calories with flurries of flying elbows, knees, and fists, or jiu jitsu, which focuses more on grappling.

Martial arts are, in a way, just one more way of working towards physical fitness for many at the studio. Fitness goals are helped along by a full weight room, cardio area, and pilates studio. There's also a full locker room for cleaning up afterwards.

At Get Centered Clay Studio, instructors teach fledgling clay artisans the basics of slinging, spinning, and molding ceramic works in a fully equipped facility. During each two-hour private instructional class, participants will learn a brief history of clay making, as well as the foundational skills necessary to hand form clay, spin symmetrical pieces on the potter's wheel, or sculpt lifelike busts with their minds. Budding artists can then hone their craft on amorphous clay blobs, becoming familiar with the materials and the wheel. Although students will not create a fully finished piece, they will leave equipped with the know-how to make ceramic water jugs and full-scale concept cars in the future.
