Open year-round, the course at Juniata Golf Club sprawls over 106 naturally hilly acres and challenges players with tricky lies and imposing hazards that complicate its relatively short length. Frankford Creek winds into play on six holes of the Edmund B. Ault design, ensnaring worm burners in a reedy morass. The par-4 sixth hole exemplifies the difficulty of the course as a whole, measuring just 360 yards in length but forcing shots to climb entirely uphill from tee to shallow green like a marathon-running pack mule.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-66 course

  • Total length of 5,275 yards from the back tees

  • Course rating of 64.8 from the back tees

  • Course slope of 109 from the back tees

  • Three sets of tees per hole

John Philip Sousa and Bob Hope aren't usually in the same sentence together, but they have both been guests of The Abington Club, where golf, fitness, and culinary offerings converge. The 9-hole golf course is characterized by elevation changes, tree-lined fairways, and one of the country's first island greens. Inside the two-story fitness complex, group classes and individual exercise equipment spur members into shape. And the center isn't just for grownups. Youngsters can partake of youth programs including kids' yoga and Zumba classes, pool parties, and kids camp. After time spent engaged in physical activities, club guests can unwind at the Wet Whistle Bar & Grill, where they can enjoy burgers, wraps, and cold brews.

Amid the verdant, golf-cart-traversed grounds of Indian Spring Country Club and Pennsauken Country Club, executive chef Dean Marco blends herbs with Maryland crab meat to make his broiled jumbo lump crab cakes. The crisp yet creamy morsels, which are Marco’s signature dish, are properly placed near the top of the menu at Marco’s Restaurant, above succulent meats such as filet mignon, Atlantic salmon, and whole crabs with authentic New England accents. Given both locations’ proximity to the links, each kitchen also sates golfers’ appetites with Angus burgers and sandwich baskets that come with optional sides such as lobster-and-shrimp bisque.

Though it's often said that the game of golf requires a lifetime to master, it seems the world neglected to mention that to Philadelphia Golf Lessons’ maestro Adz Kozlowski. Adz's ascendancy to membership in the PGA of America required only eight years; he first started golfing as a 14-year-old and won his pro certification by the age of 22, beginning a 20-year-and-running career as a reputed instructor with an impressive competitive resume, as evidenced by the sizzling round of 67 he carded at a 2006 New Jersey pro invitational.

Adz focuses on making the most of his pupils' natural swing motions by placing emphasis on the "impact position," or the orientation of the clubhead as it makes contact with golf balls or neighbors' flowerbeds. Adz has also created two golf instructional DVDs—"'N Synch Golf" and "Stroke Savers Golf"—which cover concepts such as how to adapt a smoother swing tempo, tackle every type of short-game shot, and hypnotize fellow golfers into giving pupils a gimme on any putt within 10 feet of the cup.

Sensei and trainers converge in Voltage’s studio to teach the ancient art of karate to kids and teens, or amp up heart rates with more modern fitness classes. Adults work out alongside peers in six upbeat and challenging group classes, the majority of which incorporate a dance-party atmosphere. Both belly dancing and Red Hot Dance help exercisers shimmy off calories and tone physiques with a variety of moves, from core-toning twirls to fast-paced choreography set to Top 40 hits. For a more sporting session, Piloxing blends the cardiovascular workout of boxing’s bobbing and weaving with the same ab-strengthening Pilates moves that boxers use to celebrate a KO.

Meanwhile, in the kids' studio, Leopard Cub classes (4–6 year olds) teaches the basics of karate, while the junior’s club (for 7–10 year olds) builds on those foundational lessons with more advanced kicks and punches. Karate instructors extend their fighting fervor to teenagers and adults, bringing the two age groups together more effectively than a Pat Boone Sings Carly Rae Jepson album.

The Narberth Tennis Club, which houses the Julian Krinsky School, is well equipped to suit sporting needs with four well-lit, high-visibility, U.S. Open–blue indoor tennis courts and top-of-the-line golf-course simulators. Golf lessons take place under the watchful eye of head golf pro Grant Griffiths, who provides swing instruction with indoor golf-course simulators and coaching instruction with indoor brain-knowledge. Participants are encouraged to bring their own rackets, clubs, and balls, but just like heading to the pool's lost and found when you forget your swimsuit, there are usually some available on hand to borrow.
