Shalimar Country Club's 2,417 yards of manicured golfing terrain are peppered with towering trees, slinking sand traps, and rolling hills. The design of the nine-hole, par-33 course masterfully incorporates its scenic assets?the fifth hole sits across a yawning lake, and the ninth hole's island green is flanked on all sides by water hazards, bunkers, and punks who steal golf balls for their solar-system dioramas.

A massage therapist since 1985, Liz Alessi's massage modalities and add-ons clearly inspire repeat visits, as her business's name was suggested by a client who, at the time, had been visiting her for 17 years. She has been treating clients with massage for so long that she now even whips up her own signature massage lotion by blending shea and mango butter with either apricot-kernel, cherry-kernel, or avocado oil. In 2007, she expanded her skill set and became a licensed aesthetician. Liz wanted to learn the skills to revitalize complexions after witnessing firsthand how helpful facials could be. She also calls upon her own personal experience when it comes to administering microcurrent facelifts.
