Cleaved through the tall pines of the Del Monte Forest, Poppy Hills Golf Course's 18-hole layout blankets the scenic terrain of the Monterey Peninsula with a 6,857 trail of meticulously manicured fairways and greens. Designed by renowned course architect Robert Trent Jones II, Poppy Hills has hosted many high-profile golf events, including co-hosting the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am from 1991 to 2009, a 19-year span during which Bill Murray never left. Named one of California's Top 10 Courses You Can Play, Poppy Hills gives casual golfers a chance to test their mettle on a world-class course—the 426-yard fifth hole was rated the most difficult par four in PGA Tour play in 2006—with four tee options that make it surmountable for golfers of all stripes. Though its known for its woodland scenery and large, undulating greens, the par 72 course also features water hazards that come into play on two holes, gobbling up golf balls and serving as a convenient vacation spot for fish trying to spend a weekend away from the Pacific. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 72 course designed by Robert Trent Jones II Length of 6,857 yards from the farthest tees Course rating of 74.3 from the farthest tees Slope rating of 144 from the farthest tees Four tee options Scorecard

In 1981, Rabia Erduman's search for truth led her from Istanbul, her country of origin, to an ashram in India, where a meditative spiritual experience amid thousands of people helped her discover that life offers each individual many options and that change is possible. She went on to earn a bachelor's degree in psychology and become a certified hypnotherapist, and now assists others who are struggling toward self-discovery. In addition to facilitating change via the subconscious mind, Erduman performs bodywork, such as reiki energy therapy and therapeutic massage. Erduman leads self-awareness workshops and is the author of Veils of Separation, a modern-day fairy tale narrated from the perspective of the inner child. She has also created several CDs that guide people toward true happiness. Her relaxation CD mimics the sound of the ocean and the rhythm of waves, relaxing the mind so it can become fully still and attuned to the subtleties of a seashell's life story.

The staff members at Diversified Soft Tissue Therapy have several means of relieving bodily aches and improving athletic performance. However, they typically don't prescribe anything until they've performed a postural analysis, which uses high-tech software to help chart the course of each client's treatment. Treatments may include anything from a soothing massage to Pilates classes, which strengthen the core and lengthen muscles. The staff is also there for clients outside of the office: they provide them with custom home-care plans, which include tutorials and access to a personalized video library for all of the information they'll need to maintain results on their own.
