Picturesque landscaping and above-average speed greens mark the challenging 18 holes at Honeywell Golf Course. Established in 1944 as a private course situated on the elegant Honeywell estate, landscape architect Arthur Hills expanded the terrain through the family's formal gardens in 1980, blending the old and new styles as seamlessly as a miniskirt made from buffalo-head nickels. Bunkers shelter the undulating front nines from errant shots and scantily clad sunbathers, and emerald fairways wend through the old garden's flowering shrubs and trees toward short, tighter terrain. Swingers looking for a challenge will enjoy testing their club’s mettle on Hills's addition, confronting some of the only back-to-back par-3 holes in the state.
Opening doors for 24 hours a day, seven days a week is an exhausting proposition for any doorman, unless he's a robot. That's why Anytime Fitness—having redirected its robot budget into tanning beds, cardio equipment with built-in TVs, and Precor weight machines—installed a keycard-activated security system instead. The electronic guardian keeps gym members secure while admitting them at any time of day or night for their workouts.
During daylight hours, certified instructors incinerate calories with Les Mills–designed group fitness classes or Latin-inspired Zumba dancercise. Personal trainers coach clients in one-on-one sessions, tailoring regimens to each individual's level of fitness, past injuries, or number of tentacles. To relax after workouts, staffed tanning beds stand by to bronze bodies, while water-jet-powered HydroMassage beds blast away tension.
Gillum Facial Plastic Surgery fuses professional expertise with the latest cosmetic technology to vanquish spider veins and leave behind prettified protoplasms. In an initial consultation, patients will choose to treat either the upper or lower legs and snap photos of any veins resembling former presidents. A physician's assistant then targets the the troubled areas with an injection to shrink arterial arachnids into oblivion. After the 30-minute treatment lends clarity to lower limbs, patients can expect mild side effects such as swelling and skin redness, which will typically subside over the course of a few days.
For 25 years, Dr. Mark Sell and his friendly staff have been employing innovative chiropractic techniques to straighten spines and calm nervous systems. Upon arriving at Sell, new patients fill out the required paperwork before meeting with Dr. Sell to discuss past and current problems.
A 9-hole, par 36 layout, Dogwood Glen Golf Course packs plenty of tee-to-green challenges in its 3,329-yard layout. The course opens with a 570-yard par-five—the first of two 550-plus-yard par-fives—letting golfers tee it high and swing freely to start their round. The course's five par-fours all measure more than 345 yards from the tips, making all but the longest-hitters golfers take a full swing with a wedge, short-iron, or curtain rod to make it to the green in regulation. With five tee options, the course caters to players of all abilities, and also provides alternative tee placements for those who want to play the course twice for an 18-hole round.

Dr. Deakyne teaches tooth-owners to nurture their enamel as he inspects pearly rows for signs of trouble during appointments that last about 40 minutes and commence with a comprehensive examination. Any malaise or ancient cuneiform undetected by the doctor's expert eyes reveals itself during a panoramic x-ray, which captures the full suite of teeth up for inspection before a pair of bitewing x-rays peer deeper into backmost biters. The dentist further vets mouths with an oral-cancer screening to ensure that all is well, or to detect early signs of peril. Freed of dental uncertainties, patients bound from the office with an Oral-B rotary toothbrush in hand, ready to scrub away plaque and inspire jealousy in old toothbrushes that only rotate when duct taped to a carousel.
