Dominguez Hills Golf Course guides visiting linkspeople through 18 challenging holes sprinkled across its meticulously manicured golfscape. Golfers can whack their way through a warm-up with a bucket of 60 balls (a $6 value) on Dominguez Hills' driving range. Practice swing mechanics from one of the range's 90 stalls, outfitted with an automated tee system to assist with ball placement and an automated club engraver to personalize new irons. After mastering motions and maneuvers, golfers can place their bag on the pull cart (a $5 value) and begin an 18-hole journey (up to a $16 value/round) along greens carpeted with more than 2,000 yards of kikuya and bermuda/poa grasses. Equipped with strategically placed lights, Dominguez Hills Golf Course can be played at night or during the day, granting golfers ample opportunities to lighten scorecards, pursue the 19th hole, or complete unfinished epic poems about sand traps.
Inside FTF Training Center, you won't find rows of stationary bikes or new-fangled weight machines that spit out tickets for the prize counter. What you will find, though, are pull-up bars, kettlebells, barbells, and turf–all equipment that encourage functional exercise, and moving your body the way it was designed to be moved. Inside, you'll also find trainers who have been, or currently are, professional athletes. During FTF's classes, these individuals motivate clients to not only strive toward their goals, but to exceed them. It's all part of a mentality that hides right in the facility's name: FTF, or Fight to Finish.
