Pristine fairways gently rise and fall across 6,664 yards of undulating terrain at Pajaro Valley Golf Club's 18-hole course. Located a mere Goliath's drive from the Pacific Ocean, golfers can smell the crisp sea air and hear the hushed whispers of heist-planning pelicans throughout the picturesque par 72, once the verdant kingdom of 1930s golf legend Olin Dutra. The club’s E-Z-Go golf carts ferry about the arsenal of woods and irons needed to triumph over the transition from shorter par 3s and 4s to the lengthy fairways at the 1st, 4th, 15th, and 17th holes, all par 5.
After looping the horticultural haven, golfers can retreat to the club's full-service restaurant, where frothy beers and hamburgers refuel weary bodies and famished 9-irons. Spiky-shoed journeymen can place their order ahead of time at the 9th or 18th tees, ensuring their meal will be ready for them at the turn or shortly after the round.
Goldi Jacques-Maynes, the almost-eponymous founder of Golden Chiropractic, draws on knowledge gleaned while training with leading authorities in sports chiropractic medicine to keep spines happy, healthy, and pliable. Before administering customized treatments, the licensed chiropractor first gets to know her patients through a medical history overview that accounts for past injuries and part-time jobs with Sisyphean construction crews. X-rays afford an internal peek at the spine’s going-ons, and adjustments relieve sublaxations before Dr. Jacques-Maynes calls upon activator adjusting instruments, electrical muscle stimulation, and ultrasound therapy to correct ailing discs.

In 1959, Bob and Jean Sanford and their four children could be found tending to livestock and avocado trees on the site that Casserly Golf Course now rests. But six years later, the family took the ranch into a different direction, and Bob and his three sons laid an irrigation system and began to sculpt the earth into a 9-hole, par-three golf course, which they opened in 1966. Today, Bob and Jean's son Rod runs the course, which offers two distinct sets of tees so golfers can play an 18-hole round without having to erase their memory in-between nines. The original barn still stands as a relic of the course's half-century history.
