Nestled in the hills and surrounded by countless leafy trees, FarmLinks gives golfers the chance to appreciate the man-made through the game of golf, the nature-made through golfers' surroundings, and the alien-overlord-made through their every thought and perception. In addition, a game at FarmLinks comes with a traditional Southern-style lunch in the clubhouse.
Designed by Bill Scarborough in 1962, Pine Hill Country Club's course wends golfers through 18 holes spread out over verdant fairways, which are dotted with ponds and lined with pine trees. The 6,357 yards of playing grounds challenges players throughout the par 72 course, including hole 17, which features a scant 250-yard drive and a green protected by a water hazard on three sides. An onsite pro shop stands ready to bolster players' gear collections with an arsenal of golf necessities, from clubs to bags of ice for nursing bruised egos.
Dr. Honea harnesses the power of the Zoom2 whitening system to break up stains, banish yellowing, and brighten teeth up to five shades. During the 90-minute session, Dr. Honea bathes clients’ bicuspids in a peroxide gel before switching on an advanced ultraviolet lamp that activates the solution, releasing oxygen and tiny Speedo-wearing strongmen to break the bonds of the stains. Zoom2’s gel formula also contains calcium phosphate to help reduce tooth sensitivity and boost the treatment’s lustrous effects. During the process, patients may get cozy in the cushy dentist's chair, listen to music, or daydream about stunning debate-team archrivals speechless with only a toothy smile.
Cassie Moore and Dana Harmon know that whether it's the height of midsummer heat or winter's deepest chill, calories still burn. They specifically design boot-camp classes to take advantage of current weather conditions, mixing classic workout elements such as pushups, lifts, and lunges with more fun elements such as relay races or pinning the tail on an actual donkey.

Head trainer Lee Gravlee humbly founded Gravlee Fitness in his mother's garage 20 years ago and eventually expanded his business to a duo of Birmingham-area gyms staffed by nine trainers and fitness instructors, and was nominated for an award as one of the best gyms in northern Alabama in the process. The Mount Laurel hub’s legion of treadmills, ellipticals, and stairmasters torches calories before free weights forge new colonies of lean muscle. Upstairs, an expansive fitness studio hosts Zumba, Pilates, and yoga classes, Fit Train, TRX, and senior sessions, and thumb wars between patrons who wish to be the first to descend the stairs back to the first floor. TRX sessions levitate limbs in hanging straps to create body-weight resistance and toughen toning moves, and high-energy Zumba sessions torch calories with a Latin-inspired dance routine set to international hit tunes.
