On Pet Ville Pet Hotel's acre of playground, dogs lope and bound through two synthetic-turf yards and an air-conditioned activity center with slides and tunnels. A pool shaped like a dog bone sprays canines with jets of water during hot days, proving more useful than a dog bone shaped like a swimming pool. Pet-care technicians certified by the American Boarding Kennels Association make fast friends with the animals during private and group play sessions. Trained in pet nutrition and hygiene, the technicians carefully monitor daily eliminations and general health. At the pet hotel's grooming center, canine and feline aestheticians administer jacuzzi baths, shedding remedies, and pedicures.

The rolling terrain of the par 54 course—intertwined with manmade obstacles such as sculpted bunkers, sinuous lakes, and wind—challenges golfers as they attempt holes-in-one. The distinctive course, designed by the notable engineers at Cal Olson Golf Architecture not to contain any two identical holes, contains a golf shop, café, and golf clinics taught by PGA professionals.

Above all else, Sidewalk Movement's caregivers want pet owners to feel assured that their furry family members are in good hands. Before walks, owners get email alerts that their dog is on the move with a walker, who uses a real-time GPS tracking device so owners can follow what their dog is up to. Pet sitting is also one of the team's most central roles, whether a staff member drops in to feed and keep a pet company during the work day or during owners' extended absences. One-on-one attention and quality time is at the core of the team's values, and each caretaker is first-aid certified.

Sculpted into the coastal foothills of San Diego County, Lake San Marcos Country Club’s North Course spans 6,426 yards of lush fairways and well-manicured greens. Throughout the course, mature trees await wayward orbs on the edges of fairways, and serpentine bodies of water crisscross fairways, punishing duffers for errant shots. Before taking to the links, golfers can prepare with a stint at the club’s full-length driving range, where all-grass hitting stations emulate on-course conditions as well as an opportunity to seek vengeance on Mother Earth for a lifetime of traumatizing grass stains. Casual eats at Gordon’s on the Green help restore energy after rounds that include the treacherous trek up the 12th hole—a 606-yard par 5 that runs almost entirely uphill. Those looking for a quick golf experience akin to reading the abridged version of Jack Nicklaus’s cookbook can take to the South Course, a par 58 executive layout.
