On a clear day at the tee box on Mill Valley Golf Links' 14th hole, you can see for miles?and drive the ball pretty far, too. Perched 200 feet above the fairway below, the elevated tee box helps compensate for an otherwise lengthy par 4, which measures 468 yards from the tips. Such novel holes abound on this 18-hole, 6,583-yard layout, including the fifth hole, a par 3 that plays to 240 yards from the tips.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 6,583 yards from the tips * Four tee options * Scorecard

The Cultural Center at Eagle Hill hosts a wide range of community events throughout the year, but they all have a few criteria in common: each performance must be excellent, connect with the audience, and educate viewers. And while many shows support the local artistic community, the Center also hosts exciting performers from around the world. In addition, the space provides the students of Eagle Hill School a place to learn the ins and outs of staging shows, from managing the box office to convincing ambitious floodlights to turn off.
