Swing thought. One-plane swing. Launch angle. It's easy for novice golfers to get lost in esoteric lingo and psychoanalysis during golf lessons. The 5 Simple Keys training strategy aims to cut through the confusion by breaking swings down into five points. These points have been derived from both the close study of professional golfers' techniques and the swings of the world’s most reliable grandfather clocks.

The first three steps are easy enough to grasp: maintain a steady head and a straight non-dominant wrist while making sure to transfer your body weight to the front foot through impact. Instructors use a VisionTrack guide to drive home the last two points which cover the diagonal path the club should take before striking the ball and the angle of the clubhead relative to the direction of the swing. Golfers who master all five keys can expect to attain a reliable, repeatable swing, and the ability to make subtle adjustments when they want to hit a draw or fade.

One of very few venues to teach the 5 Simple Keys philosophy, Reunion Resort Golf Course offers a venerable backdrop to golf lessons. As students plot their path to par-dom, they can gaze out onto the contoured greenery of the only golf complex to feature three signature courses designed by Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, and Jack Nicklaus.

El Paraiso Restaurant is an homage to everything Caribbean, so it should come as no surprise that the menu features a variety of seafood dishes. Traces of coconut can be found in the breaded jumbo shrimp, and mofongos mix mashed plantains with the day's catch. A salad might be boring anywhere else, but not here?El Paraiso's options come topped with octopus, lobster, or cod. The "turf" side of surf 'n' turf is also well-represented, with traditional dishes of steak and onions or fried pork chops with rice and beans. But it's not just the food that draws in crowds. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, live music permeates the tropical-themed space thanks to visiting bands, DJs, and parrots squawking karaoke tunes.

The chocolate ice cream at La Forchetta Italian Ristorante stands out from the other desserts—cheesecake, cannoli, and tiramisu—in that it isn't made from scratch in the kitchen. Instead, it is imported from Italy. Whether they've been shipped in or built from the basics onsite, the ingredients of every meal at the venue follow the same trend: devotion to authentic preparation and flavor. The selection of housemade pastas includes manicotti and gnocchi stuffed with ricotta and romano. Seafood entrees decorate shrimp and mussels in italian seasoning, whereas plates of veal and chicken marsala arrive marinated in marsala wine.

The staff has had 27 years to perfect their menu of pizzas, meats, and starters, so they've also thoroughly researched what libations best complement the fare. Guests can sip wine and beer or close meals on steamy notes with cappuccinos rather than by having servers read checks in husky voices.
