Equipped with a degree from the National University of Health Sciences, a passion for modern science and alternative medicine, and a desire to educate others about leading a wellness-oriented lifestyle, Doctor of Chiropractic Valentino R. Botti began his practice to guide members of his community toward happier, healthier lives. During each of his one-on-one chiropractic sessions, Dr. Botti gives patients a thorough exam, during which he tests their posture, flexibility, and reflexes, especially when it comes to surprise bear hugs. After determining causes of pain, the doctor then walks patients through a range of holistic services that may target their particular issues, such as massage therapy, acupuncture, or cold-laser therapy. Each session takes place in a private treatment room, enabling patients to emit "oohs" and "aahs" at their own discretion.

With extensive experience treating chronic disorders, Dr. Luban addresses each patient's individual ailments and helps to improve musculoskeletal issues. Ms. Collmann's dedication to pure, botanically based products imbues clients with natural benefits during detoxification sessions, nutritional consultations, and soulful discussions with weeping willows.

A stately, English Tudor–style clubhouse greets guests from its perch overlooking Stony Creek Golf Course, a 5,004-yard, par-65 fairway chain that connects over rolling, tree-lined terrain. A stone-lined creek forms a watery wishbone across the relatively short course, adding a scenic sense of continuity as golfers hit their way across nine par-3s, eight par-4s, and one 518-yard, par-5. The course shares its grassy hillocks with a fully lighted practice facility featuring a driving range—which offers the option of hitting from synthetic turf or real grass—and a miniature golf course occupied by fountains and waterfalls. After a day at the links, guests can unwind at the clubhouse bar and grill, where immense windows look over the course and a covered patio provides an area for spectating games of bean bags, horseshoes, or ping pong.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par-65 course * Length of 5,004 yards * Course rating of 62.5 * Slope rating of 103 * Three sets of tee markers available * Scorecard
