The P.I.N.K.

At Blue Pacific Boating, professional skippers boldly lead novice sailors across choppy waters in pursuit of sailing expertise. The two-hour introductory lesson, which is held aboard one of Blue Pacific’s new, midsize yachts, gives mildly salted sea dogs a hands-on introduction to the basics of sailing, including essential maneuvering techniques and the secret to keeping the wind out of your sails. Mounting the waves from the school’s Oxnard port, the captain and a crew of up to five will tour Channel Islands Beach, playing bumper boat with other vessels along the way and absorbing views of cavorting dolphins and roaring sea lions. Courses will be offered weekly, alternating between Sundays and Wednesdays.

The stately grounds at River Ridge Golf Club are split between two distinct 18-hole courses: The Vineyard Course and The Victoria Lakes Course. Though there is a diverse arrangement of hole layouts littered throughout these sibling courses, a few design features are constants. Well-kept fairways and smooth greens of poa annua grass are always underfoot, one of the 14 water hazards is never far, and a light breeze constantly blows over the club from the Pacific, located just a few miles away.
In fact, the ocean is visible from a handful of high elevation points on the Vineyard Course. Holes three through six are "on top of the world" because they showcase panoramic ocean views and are at the highest elevation in Oxnard. Golfers also encounter water in closer proximity, as five lakes span the back nine on the Vineyard course, including the signature island green on the par-3 18th hole that usually plays into the wind or the occasional golf-ball hail storm. True to its name, the Victoria Lakes course harbors eight acres of water, as well as a stretch of difficult layouts on hole 12, 13, and 14.
In addition to adhering to golf's storied traditions, River Ridge also embraces new developments in the world of sport. Take footgolf, for instance. Started in the Netherlands in 2009, the hybrid sport combines soccer's precision kicks with golf's scoring system and challenging courses. River Ridge embraced the sport early, opening the first footgolf course in California alongside its traditional courses. In addition to attracting curious athletes, the course also earned the attention of the sport's governing body; River Ridge is an official partner of the American FootGolf League, and will host one of the league's inaugural pro-am tournaments in September 2014.
