Designed by course architect Geoffrey Cornish—who has designed more than 230 courses—Bowling Green Golf Club blankets the tree-lined terrain of a former dairy farm with a challenging, 6,863-yard golf course. Immersed in a network of rolling hills topped with tall red pines and oaks, the par-72 design provides a scenic escape more enjoyable than burrowing one’s head into a potted plant. Dense tree lines play a prominent role throughout the entire course, and the back nine also runs along native ponds and wetlands that loom near fairways and greens. To help golfers excel in the wooded layout without the use of a chainsaw, Bowling Green Golf Club offers golf lessons and clinics for players of all abilities.

At The Grill Room, guests can enjoy a casual atmosphere of drinks and inventive twists on traditional grill dishes. While digging into grilled filet mignon or Mediterranean chicken with penne pasta and sun-dried tomatoes, patrons can pause to take in views of the rolling hills and give nicknames to each pine needle in the forest.

Course at a Glance:

  • Designed by Geoffrey Cornish
  • 18-hole, par-72 course
  • Length of 6,863 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 73.2 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 134 from the farthest tees
  • Six tee options

Few yoga studios can say that they've created their own styles of yoga, but at Highland Yoga, Anelyn and Stephen Tortorello did just that. With the help of their instructors, these yogis developed Yogacarya, which marries Western yoga postures with the introspection, meditation, and self-realization encouraged by the Yoga Sutras. The open, clean studio hosts a rotating gallery of local artists' paintings and photography to inspire reflection.

Their 32 weekly classes—available in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels—also embrace the widely popular Vinyasa and Hatha methods along with the lesser-known Kripalu and Kundalini yogas. To further foster mind-body connections, the studio's licensed massage therapists ease muscular stress, taut muscles, and uptight grizzly bears with myofascial, Swedish, and Thai yoga bodywork.

CKO Kickboxing founder Joseph Andreula's knowledge of exercise goes beyond creating effective workouts. It also helps guide the Fitness Standards Council, a nonprofit advisory panel of doctors and certified personal trainers, and provides the basis for the articles he’s published in Exercise for Men, Men's Health, and _Men's Fitness Magazine. But his true passion lies in the innovative fitness classes he created at CKO Kickboxing gyms. Since 1997, these gyms have housed Andreula’s exercise classes, which use basic kickboxing techniques to lead students toward powerful strength and greater endurance. In contrast to other kickboxing routines that have participants kick the air or invisible schoolyard bullies, students in CKO Kickboxing sessions strike hanging heavy bags to help them tone more muscle and burn up to 1,200 calories in a single class.
