First sculpted into Virginia's rolling terrain in 1952, Suffolk Golf Course remains true to the original vision of course architect Dick Wilson. Though not an especially lengthy course, it plays longer due to the elevation changes, tree-lined fairways, and dog-legs that can complicate play throughout the layout. Once golfers reach the green, they face a slick, newly-renovated, Bermuda grass putting surface that?after overseeding in early 2014?provides a particularly true roll. The back nine winds around Lake Kilby, which provides sweeping vistas while threatening to ensnare any wayward shots. A bald eagle is known to dwell around the 12th hole, so golfers should wear their most patriotic wig on the course as a gesture of respect.
When fitting clubs, the skilled staff at Golf Etc follows a seven-step process led by customer interview to analyze shots and swings and determine optimal shaft weight and launch angle. In creating a custom fit and build, the shop aims to cut shot dispersion in half and boost overall distance.
A licensed master aesthetician with 10 years of skin-spiffing experience, Mary Farmer helps fatigued dermises flout aging’s emblems with spa treatments. Rebuff clingy skin cells with the microdermabrasion facial, which gently strips visages of their outermost dermal layer with a non-invasive spray of fine crystals that infuses skin with the peachy glow of health, as opposed to the mauve glow of space radiation. Newly confident mugs can flaunt such results as reduced signs of sun damage, clearer complexions, and erasure of fine lines from intense bouts of illegal street brow-furrowing.

No need to stress about where to put your mat in a crowded studio: River Yoga's instructors journey to the students, not the other way around. During private or semiprivate lessons, the instructors gear yoga lessons to each individual's specific needs. Classes might focus on breathing and meditation, or help athletes get relief from tight hamstrings or lower-back pain. Ultimately, it's about helping students find relief for their bodies and minds.
Sleepy Hole Golf Course challenges golfers in an emerald labyrinth defined by tree-lined fairways, wispy aquatic grasses, and views of the mile-wide Nansemond River. Golfers can start off by loosening up drivers on the range and giving short irons a pep talk in the chipping and putting practice areas. After teeing off, players wind through a verdant course inhabited by doglegs, troublesome bunkers, and water hazards that come into play on five holes. The 18th hole tests golfers' mettle with difficult shot selections throughout, as tee shots land in view of the river and prompt players to either lay up for a safe approach or send shots sailing over marshy fescues onto a green sandwiched between a bunker, a drop-off into water, and a patch of carnivorous plants that subsist on divot tools and plaid knickers.
