Although it didn?t seem adventurous or sensational like some other professions, Julie Korff dreamt of becoming a hairstylist as a kid. While most other people grew up to realize they?d never actualize their childhood goal of becoming an astronaut, an archaeologist, or football quarterback Joe Montana, Korff went on to achieve her dream, traveling to New York and Beverly Hills to learn the art of hairstyling. Today she works in the San Diego area, where she snips and styles within the upscale Envision Salon & Spa.
Having crafted customized hairdos since 1999, Julie has a developed a particular knack for coloring. Rather than using cheap products or melted Crayola crayons, she opts for top-quality dyes from brands such as Framesi 2001, Schwarzkopf Professional, and Redken.

Stylist Rondi Courtney of Hair by Rondi channels years of experience through the ends of her creative fingers as she sculpts manes into chic shapes that flatter eyes and cheekbones. After a deep-conditioning treatment, tresses acquire a soft, supple texture and catch the sun’s lustrous light as they flow from scalps. Partial highlights peep out from the uppermost locks to instill subtle dimension, whereas full highlights overhaul hues in strands throughout the whole head, which helps noggins camouflage themselves when standing in front of auburn sunsets or green, grassy meadows. Extra-long hair can be highlighted for an additional $10, and clients can choose to add another color or touch up their base color for an extra $30.
Situated along the meandering Moosa Creek, the fairways of Castle Creek Country Club sweep gracefully through the foothills of Temecula Wine Country and located near three major casinos. The 1948 Jack Daray blueprint escorts players through a 6,688-yard labyrinth, hemmed in by oak-forest barriers and mottled with bunkers of white sand. After completing a testy front nine that includes the 624-yard par 5 sixth hole, players embark on the most difficult stretch of the course in holes 10, 11, and 12. These holes—a 450-yard par 4 followed by back-to-back par 5s—demand that players demonstrate an ability to hit the ball far, leaving many contestants exhausted, bleary-eyed, and swinging at golf balls that don’t exist.
