Pelican Point merges British-style golf with Louisiana panache on a recently improved facility that houses two championship golf courses and two practice ranges. Built on 450 acres of a retired sugar-cane farm, the semiprivate golf club houses many obstacles, including wide bunkers, shot-blocking trees, and a wormhole that spits hapless golfers onto yard 100 of the driving range. Duos putt with precision on the championship-bermuda-grass greens of Pelican Point's premiere course, The Links, which enhances aim with up to 6,931 driving yards and a water hazard on nearly every hole. Golfers can also tee off at The Lakes course, which thwarts crooked shots with doglegs that meander through native Louisiana wildlife and wildflowers. Pelican Point observes a strict dress code at both courses, which requires clothing designed specifically for golf, such as collared shirts, golf-length shorts, and plaid brass knuckles.
Nature's Wellness provides health-minded clients with holistic opportunities to cleanse, relax, and improve their overall well-being. While traditional steam-powered saunas warm the skin, High Tech Health's infrared sauna treatment penetrates the body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches, inciting the body's cellular detoxification process to a riot of cootie purging. Heavy metal toxins, chemical residues, and foodborne pesticides get the boot, resulting in a clearer mind and blissfully relaxed muscles. The hot-handed sessions are thought to improve cardiovascular health, ease chronic pain, help control weight, and boost immune resistance to colds, infection, and dangerous DNA poachers.
Foxy's Fitness Center encompasses a trio of workout facilities—including a women's-only club on Old Hammond Highway—where trainees sweat through group, semiprivate, and private sessions. With cardio and strength machines for self-guided reps, as well as DotFit nutrition guidance for all ages, the centers cater to guests of every fitness background. Exercise classes entail engaging actions, from cycling in studios to calisthenics to otter-cuddling contests in the indoor pools.
Ascension Community Theatre gathers gifted local actors and directors on the stage of the historic Pasqua Theater for acclaimed modern plays. The Pulitzer Prize–winning “Rabbit Hole,” directed by renowned Louisiana talent Mattie Olson, tells the tale of a family outlasting a major loss with elements of comedy flickering through the somber subject matter. Nicole Kidman was recently nominated for an Oscar for a film adaptation of the play, and Ascension’s staging shares the movie’s emotional complexity while swapping in real people for the holograms that take all but a few leading roles in most Hollywood films. Balcony seats unveil the best views in the historic Pasqua Theater.
Voted Golf Course of the Year by the Charleston Golf Course Owners Association in 2009, Dunes West Golf Club's scenic par 72 teems with 200-year-old oaks and bermuda-covered dunes in a diamond-shaped layout designed by Arthur Hills. Frank Moore, a PGA member with more than 20 years of teaching experience, uses close observation and video analysis in one-hour lessons to give each attendee a more confident swing and a more intimate understanding of life from a sand trap's perspective. In addition to 10 sessions of swing instruction, golf students can enjoy four rounds on the 6,871-yard course, stopping occasionally to admire the Dunes West clubhouse's classic southern architecture.
