Augustine Golf Club's award-winning course was sculpted to reflect its natural beauty with its distinctive par 4s sculpted by course architect, Rick Jacobson. Although the greens at Augustine declined for a few years, recent renovations have restored the course to its former glory, once again luring golfers to its babbling streams and forest. Farther north, rivals Augustine's sister course, Raspberry Falls. Course architect Gary Player remarked that the Falls, once an 18th-century plantation, “was made for a golf course.” Inspired by this ideal setting, he dreamed up the links-style course at Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club, whose meandering brooks, stone walls, and stacked-sod bunkers evoke Scotland, while its vista of the Catoctin Mountains remind players they’re in Virginia.
These golf havens have more than picturesque views in common—they are two of six award-winning courses united by Raspberry Golf Management’s portfolio, which stretches from Virginia to Pennsylvania and skips over to Arizona. Gary Player’s design team for Raspberry Falls included Tim Freeland, who went on to design two of the firm’s other courses: Royal Manchester Golf Links, whose bentgrass fairways sidle up to the Susquehanna River, and Old Hickory Golf Club, a parkland-style course crisscrossed by Beaver Creek. The management company's other gems include The Legacy Golf Resort, where cowboys used to ride their rocking horses around a 7,500-acre ranch, and Bull Run Golf Club, which sprawls across more than 450 acres of meadows and woodlands at the foot of the Bull Run Mountains.

Since 1988, Papa Petrone's Take 'N Bake has been filling home kitchens with the scents of fresh-baked pizzas and pastas. Using California-grown tomatoes and Grande mozzarella, cooks create pizzas that can be customized with a variety of toppings—such as italian sausage, feta cheese, fresh broccoli, and jalapeño peppers. Once completed, the staff wraps each raw disk to prepare it for baking in customers' home ovens, whose balmy temperatures also finish the shop's signature ScrambleBread, scratch-made lasagnas, and hearty egg-white pastas. Papa Petrone's assortment of take-home bakeables has earned the shop numerous oven beeps of approval and a wall filled with press and awards.
