In 1922, a small but devoted group of Newberry community members pooled their time and resources to create a space to enjoy golf, tennis, swimming, and the company of friends. From their efforts emerged the nascent Country Club of Newberry, originally comprised of a nine-hole golf course with sand greens and an outdoor pool that, true to the times, was no more than a pond fed by more than 75 springs and a steady flow of ragtime music. The pond still rests behind the sprawling, ivory clubhouse that anchors the Country Club today, a scenic testament to the humble beginnings of a club that now encompasses an 18-hole, championship golf course, two lighted tennis courts, and a junior Olympic-sized outdoor pool.

Streams and ponds snake throughout the golf course, threatening the life force of errant orbs on nine different holes. With a length of 6,530 yards from the tips, the moderately difficult layout offers four color-designated tees to cater to players of all abilities and those with an unwavering allegiance to the color gold.

Certified Rolfer Kimberly Richey eases bodies into balance during 75-minute Rolfing sessions. As opposed to massage therapists, who drive tension from muscles, or chiropractors, who realign spines by advising patients to sleep on a ruler, Richey’s practice focuses on the fascia, the soft tissue that surrounds muscles and connects organs to one another. Direct pressure coupled with guided movements work to release tightness within connective tissues, restoring proper movement to the body as a whole. Continued Rolfing sessions can result in improved posture and mobility, reduced pain and stiffness, and increased circulation.

Even before he founded PowerFit Bootcamp, JR Spear always felt a calling to transform people into fitness machines. A fourth-degree black belt and studied martial artist, Spear spent years training future Marine Corps officers and Iraqi soldiers in self-defense and combat skills. Later, Spear taught his own MMA fitness and cardio-kickboxing classes, along with personal and group training sessions.

At PowerFit Bootcamp, he and his staff of fitness instructors encourage each student to persevere by leading motivational and high-energy classes. At 12 indoor and outdoor locations, students undergo full-body workouts designed to jettison fat and tone muscle. Trainers welcome students of all stripes, giving them a period of time to complete each move, rather than a number of repetitions, encouraging each student to do as much as he or she can without feeling uncomfortable, overexerting, or resorting to time travel. Along the way, coaches track progress and motivate students by noting benchmarks during physical fitness tests on the first Monday and Tuesday of each month.

A former Parelli Natural Horsemanship Professional, Katy Nichoalds teaches students to bond with their horses by building trust and communicating through non-verbal cues. Students remain on the ground at the beginning of their lessons, which lets the horse know who's giving instruction and forces it to pay attention rather than daydream about starring in the Seabiscuit sequel. Once a connection is established, students can experiment with riding without the reins and communicating with the horse through physical contact. By learning to read the horse?s body language, students can engage it in silent conversation as they work through obstacles that may include traversing trails and, eventually, jumping over fences. To round out the Natural Horsemanship curriculum, Katy also sheds light on equine subjects such as proper grooming, which extends from brushing the horse's mane to selecting the best hoof polish.
