Ladies spin around poles, dance on chairs, and roll on the floor during fun and flirty workout classes. Twelve stainless steel professional poles in the main dance room span from the sleek wood floor to the 10-foot ceiling, while a private instruction studio holds two more poles. The female-centric workouts serve to boost self-esteem while burning calories and toning bodies. The studio often hosts parties with a convenient on-site kitchen.

When renowned course architect Ellis Maples first laid eyes on the rolling expanse of land in the Sandhills, he knew he had found the venue for his next course. Whispering Woods Golf Club encompasses both gentle slopes and steeper hills, offering a dynamic canvas atop which Maples designed holes with stark elevation changes. Today, golfers encounter a diverse layout that showcases anything from treacherously undulating bentgrass greens to a small roller coaster for bored caddies to enjoy. Carolina pines line the edges of the fairways and greens throughout the round, stretching out their thin trunks to snag any errant shots. The end product of Ellis’s vision is an 18-hole, 6,324-yard layout described by course architect Dan Maples, Ellis’s son, as “a golf course designed with the average player in mind, but good players won’t find a pushover.”
