Designed by architect Buck Blankenship, the fairways of Shelbyville Country Club's 18-hole course circumnavigate a horseshoe-shaped lake and they gently rise and fall over the rolling hills of Shelby County. Narrow fairways lined with mature trees offset the course's relatively short 6,400-yard length, setting the tone for a round that rewards accuracy and course management over flashy drives and flame-decaled golf bags. A fully stocked pro shop lies at the course's trailhead, offering players the latest in clubs and gear, and a staff of two resident aces stands ready to adjust swings and impart strategic advice during private and group lessons. Along with the immaculate landscape, Shelbyville Country Club boasts two outdoor tennis courts and an Olympic-size pool featuring a gated kiddie pool and play area, all of which are patrolled by a lifeguard and Mark Spitz's mustache.

Clear Creek Golf Center's nine-hole, executive layout spreads its fairways and greens across 1,665 yards of Kentucky countryside. With six par 3s and three par 4s, the course is anchored by the longest and most difficult hole, a 331-yard par 4 where players will feel compelled to unsheathe their driver or airlift their ball with a remote-controlled helicopter. The scaled-down layout offers closer tees and scoring designed for junior golfers, making it a sound venue for youngsters to master the game. Before rounds, players can stretch out their swings at the center’s 285-yard driving range or at the practice green, which features putting and chipping surfaces. In addition, head PGA professional Derrick Griffitts and his staff offer lessons and clinics for those looking to straighten out a chronic slice or actors researching for their starring role in a character study about a forlorn sand wedge. Course at a Glance: * Nine-hole, par 30 course * Length of 1,665 yards from the farthest tees * Three tee options
Licensed massage therapist Shelley Steeves steams towels, their heat radiating as she places them on a patient’s back, warming the skin before her fingers get to kneading out tension and stress. Clients return to Sacred Beauty again and again for such tension-reducing services, each of which is catered to the client’s needs and time constraints. Shelley’s signature Serenity massage couples the long strokes of Swedish massage with warm towels and the aromatherapy of essential oils, locking clients in a soothing embrace for a quick 30-minute session, or as a longer service or package. During a hot-stone massage, smooth, warm rocks dissolve sites of tension and epidermal surfaces soften during a sea-salt body scrub, which leaves just a hint of the sea, or enough to convince you that actually going to the ocean is overrated.
Despite its location amid bustling downtown shops on Saltspring Island, Spa by Lenice exudes the tranquility of the waters in nearby Ganges Harbour. The promenade outside the spa itself resembles a quaint wooden boardwalk, and the interior draws out the nautical ambience with its navy walls, wood floors, and regular mermaid clientele. Like soothing ocean waves, indian head massages, hot-stone facials, and mani-pedis lap away tension from world-weary bodies. The staff take care not to stress out skin by using Éminence Organic Skin Care products, which are made with hand-picked, nutrient-rich ingredients including various fruit pulps, plants, seeds, herbs, and exotic spices.

A.J. at Hair Emporium pampers clients from head to toe with an arsenal of beautifying and relaxing services. The Garden State–inspired Jerseylicious mani-pedi applies a glamorous foil finish to trimmed fingernails as well as scrubbed and groomed toenails, and lasts about one week, dazzling passersby and temporarily stunning podiatrists. Durable gel polish adorns digits after a Shellac manicure, and cleansed and toned faces luxuriate under a seaweed mask during the 30-minute express facial. The one-hour body wrap commences with a bow-to-stern body scrub, followed by an ambrosial mud mask and moisturizer. While relaxers unwind in their earthen cocoons, skilled fingers massage the scalp and third eye for 15 minutes.
