Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars' multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 600 calories with each go-round.
The Ranch Golf Club's skilled architect, Damian Pascuzzo, challenges club swingers with 340 acres of rolling bentgrass, woodlands, and water hazards that earned the course 2010 honors as a GolfWorld Top 50 Public Course. Forty acres of undulating fairways carpet formidable holes starting with the first pin, which tempts drives down a narrow fairway amid the unintelligible secrets of whispering willows. Prior to tee time, players can brush up their short game skills on two fast-rolling practice greens, or swing wildly at six target greens that pepper a 300-yard driving range. Decked out carts, featuring club washers and drive distance measurements, direct players along pathways with a ProLink GPS system that offers approach advice and eliminates the need to ask a skittish deer to caddy the next hole.
