The course at High Lands Golf Club challenges visitors with 6,599 yards of tight lies, concealed obstacles, and fairway trees extending their unlucky limbs into players’ sightlines. Tree-lined fairways and immaculate greens yield some scenic vistas for players bashing orbs along the course’s serpentine length. The signature third hole starts players off from an elevated tee shot that must stay out of the out-of-bounds area on the left, but not drift too far right, where clearing the wooded ravine on the second shot would become impossible. The next shot onto the elevated green is made difficult by the black walnut tree guarding the green, making for an altogether difficult run at par. Toward the end of the round, players must face a gauntlet of obstacles on holes 16, 17, and 18 before heading in for the day. Named the “Bermuda Triangle” for the architect’s tendency to incorporate treacherous waterways and affinity for Bermuda shorts, hole 16 challenges golfers with difficult lies, slippery putts, and water hazards that loom large.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Before your massage, the therapist will place a hot towel on your back. You may listen to your choice of music while you lie on the heated table. Afterward, a mirror makes it easy to check your makeup and hair.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
Swedish massage provides a welcome release from the stresses of a busy life. Prenatal massage allows the mother-to-be to relax and eases the discomforts of a changing body. Trigger point (a form of deep-tissue massage) relieves the taut, shortened muscles challenged by overwork or trauma. Clients love receiving massages because they realize that if they are going to give their best care to others, they need to take care of themselves also.
Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be flexible to do yoga. Rather, the flexibility—both physical and mental—comes along with the practice. At Studio Om, students with any or no experience are welcome to try a variety of yoga classes. Class options include styles ranging from gentle or chair yoga to more vigorous Vinyasa yoga, depending on whether students seek a relaxing or invigorating session. The studio also holds Pilates and yoga fusion classes, as well as Holy Yoga sessions, which combine biblical Christian study with an all-levels yoga flow sequence.
A regular player in Hollywood martial arts movies, Ernie Reyes has earned membership in the Black Belt Hall of Fame, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Professional Martial Artists, and a World's Greatest Dad (Kicking Division) mug. One of Reyes' crowning achievements was training seven national champions in one year, so it's no surprise that his national martial-arts school produces disciplined and dedicated practitioners of numerous fighting styles. Programs include cardio kickboxing, mixed-martial-arts lessons, yoga classes, and children's martial arts.
