Most rounds of golf end when the sun goes down. But when the sun sets off the coast at Van Nuys Golf Course, lights illuminate the fairways for late-evening rounds. Whether catching a round after work or in the afternoon, golfers can take on one of two challenges: an 18-hole par-three course or a nine-hole executive course. Both courses present golfers with their own obstacles, including water hazards, sand traps, and bending fairways. Above the peaceful scene, soars a wide range of aircrafts—such as WWII Warbirds and F-16 Falcons—each landing at the nearby Van Nuys airport or dropping parachuting caddies onto the greens. Van Nuys accompanies its unique rounds with various amenities, too, including a practice range, PGA instructional staff, and newly remodeled pro shop stocked with gear.

Executive Course at a Glance: * Nine-hole, par 30 course * Total length of 1,574 yards from the back tees * Scorecard

18-Hole Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 54 course * Total length of 2,212 yards from the back tees * Scorecard

When someone from each of your family's three previous generations is a PGA-certified professional, it's safe to say golf runs in your blood. That's certainly the case for Kelli Ply, a fourth-generation PGA-certified pro who cut her teeth at the club her father managed before taking her skills all the way to the grassy stages of NCAA Division-I competition. After a stint coaching in China, Kelli now imparts her par-hunting wisdom stateside, helping clients reach their goals with technical and strategic advice. Kelli sharpens her own diagnostic skills with the help of video swing analysis, a less intrusive alternative to traditional golf club psychoanalysis.

Living up to their slogan "Excellence in Aviation," Rotor F/X runs the gamut of flight-related services by selling and repairing rotorcraft, in addition to offering flight training, transportation, and quick aerial tours of the Los Angeles area. As a prop company, Rotor F/X has a reputation of building believable cockpit mockups, aviation sets, and scale models of planes and helicopters. As a testament to their ability to enhance stunts, effects, and camera shots with their replicas, the crew of the History Channel's Modern Marvels asked them to construct a experimental helicopter that not only lifts up into the air, but travels back in time to prevent the original Star Trek from being canceled.

The highly trained instructors at U.S. Aviators imbue students with the aviation know-how necessary to earn ratings from private and commercial pilot licenses to instrument ratings and instructor certification. To prepare pupils for their skyward excursions, the teaching team simulates flights with a Redbird FMX, which replicates real-life scenario-based training with wrap-around visuals, a fully enclosed cockpit, and single- or multi-engine configurations. From there, students hone their aerial skills with U.S. Aviators' fleet of Cessnas, Pipers, and an American Champion Decathlon, named for the event it won by flying over its opponents. Along with hands-on experience, U.S. Aviators supplies budding pilots with necessary gear such as terminal charts, mechanic tools, and sunglasses at its fully stocked shop.

Six-foot obstacle walls tower over rows of barbells and bumper plates within Valley CrossFit's 15,000-square-foot facility. The gym strives to challenge all its members with diverse equipment, including seven climbing ropes, a 1,600-square-foot pro gymnastics floor, and a 48-foot-long pull-up and monkey-bar structure. Each CrossFit workout is designed to be challenging but can be scaled for participants of any fitness level, and the trainers constantly mix up class activities to keep bodies engaged. On any given day, members might find themselves swinging kettlebells, tossing medicine balls, or using rowing machines. Though group exercise is the core of the CrossFit program, coaches can also tailor the workouts even further during personal-training sessions.
