North Golf Course does away with extremely long holes, tight landing zones, and overly difficult hazards in favor of a par 61 layout that's playable for all golfers. Comprised of 11 par 3s and 7 par 4s, the course lets beginners of all ages concentrate on taking confident swings and enjoying their good shots without worrying that a menacing par 5 is going to follow them home. Though the 4,087-yard layout won't give longer hitters too many chances to show off their stuff, it does encourage them to work on accuracy with the short irons and touch with the putter.
Course at a Glance:
Dede Barbanti is a go-getter. The former professional choreographer and dance director found herself a single mother of three and weighing more than she wanted. So she dove head-first into researching fitness and created her own workout, Boogie Box, which combines cardio and strength training during sports-endurance drills, martial arts, latin and hip-hop dance, plyometrics, and resistance-training exercises. A 70-pound loss in fewer than seven months put Dede back on the right track, along with a strong urge to share her success with the masses. She's developed more workouts, and even released a DVD that follows a 90-day workout program. At Boogie Box Fitness, students find a supportive environment as they blast through Dede’s workouts, burning calories without gym equipment.

Envy Rentals corrals a seaworthy stable of crafts designed for adrenaline-laced sessions of high-flying aquatic acrobatics, windswept cruising, or drifting away a lazy morning. Sporting wakeboards, wake skates, and tow ropes, each 2007 Mastercraft X-2 wake boat plucks potential boarders from the land for attempted thrills and certain water-caused chills during a half-day of wake thrashing. Hauling riders across the currents with the power of 310 horses, Envy’s Mastercrafts boast a 750-pound ballast capacity that fills and empties in fewer than five minutes for quick trades between mountainous water ramps and speedy travel times. Post-boarding, kick back and absorb fresh air and cool breezes to the thumping beats from a 300-watt JL CD system, Sirius satellite radio, iPod connectivity, or the boat’s onboard a capella group.
