  • Wheel Fun Rentals
    Wheel Fun Rentals’ gleaming fleet of pedal-powered wheelmobiles rejuvenate the line between points A and B. Shiny cruisers ($10/hr. at Lake Balboa; $12/hr. at Shoreline) await solo cyclists, and tandems ($15/hr. or $35/full day) act as catalysts for the perfect outdoor date for a sun-seeking couple or a farmer and his prized pumpkin. A four-wheeled single surrey ($20/hr.)—the mutant offspring of a golf cart and paddleboat—comfortably accommodates three adults and two children, and up to six adults and a pair of children can pile into a double surrey ($30/hr.) and attempt to break the sound barrier.

  • Kelli Ply Golf
    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.

  • Van Nuys Golf Course
    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

  • Apple Cup Rivalry Clash
    The rivalry between Ducks fans and Beavers fans is built right into the Ducks vs. Beavers Rivalry Clash's race course. Supporters of the two teams, decked out in their most spirited gear, kick off the chip-timed race at separate starting lines, and begin the race by running straight towards each like old armies. Instead of a head-on collision, the two groups funnel into a single mass, sharing a race course as they vie for the fastest times on the 5K or 10K route. The speediest school wins a donation to their university's laptop scholarship program, plus the right to refer to their rival school as "our satellite campus." Regardless of the results, everyone buries the hatchet at a tailgate-style afterparty, where entertainment ranges from a tug-of-war to the most beloved of collegiate pastimes: a flip-cup tournament. The flip-cup games, as well as corn-hole and other competitive events, give racers a chance to earn more glory for their schools. There are also awards for the fastest individuals, the team of five with the lowest combined time, and the school with the lowest overall score (as determined by the sum of the top 100 runners' places).
