The staff at The Golf Improvement Center knows that shaving strokes is all about getting the little things right. This precision is evident in the center’s facilities, from the 7,500 square-foot putting green modeled after the famous Himalayas putting course at St. Andrews to the seven target greens scattered around the 320-by-300-yard driving range and laser measured to every hitting station. Instead of the oversize range balls at the great majority of driving ranges, which get tired of flying after 100 yards, players hit real regulation golf balls that get recycled every year, which provides the invaluable feel and results of actual strokes. The center also recognizes that golfers committed to improvement can’t sacrifice practice time just because the course is full of rain, snow, or carnivorous fog. Thus, when the 24,000 square feet of grass tees aren’t available due to these or other concerns, players can continue to practicing their drives and chips on the 38 covered Fiberbuilt mats, some of which are also heated. At dusk, stadium-level lights flicker on to ensure the continuous bombardment of golf balls into the night sky.
"You're up." At more than 200 AMF Bowling locations across the U.S., that message is passed between friends as they pick up a ball, step up to the line, and prepare to have a great time. Now synonymous with bowling, AMF was founded in 1901 as American Machine and Foundry. It wasn't until 1946, however, that the company made a splash in bowling, introducing the automated pin spotter to the public.
Today, AMF's nationwide network of bowling centers is a source of year-round entertainment for people of all ages. AMF centers offer a modern approach to traditional bowling—with pro-quality lanes, innovative scoring systems, all-star menus, and the ability to share laneside experiences on social media. When cravings strike, the game still goes on thanks to AMF’s laneside food and beverage service.
The first hole on the course at Rustic Hills Country Club carves an arc along the westerly banks of Rustic Hills Lake, a dramatic opening to the relatively short nine-hole track. With a par of 32, the course is dominated by four par 3s, yet makes up for its shorter layout with frequent hills that force swing adjustments and a steady diet of golf balls for the course's many water hazards—including one that almost entirely surrounds the seventh green.
Just off the golf course, the stately grounds of Rustic Hills Country
Club encompass a fine- dining restaurant, Fireside Restaurant and Lounge
which is also open to the public. Membership opportunities are available.

A Greek-themed fitness center might conjure the images of ancient Olympic events, but at Mediterranean Fitness, chariot races and javelin poles are nowhere in sight. Instead, crisp white architecture and ocean-blue accents decorate the boutique gym where exercisers build strength and self-confidence among free weights, modern cardio machines, and daily fitness classes including hot yoga and cycling. Complimentary childcare keeps kids busy while parents work up a sweat training for arm-wrestling matches with Zeus.
The instructors at Tumble Athletics—all of whom were former college cheerleaders at Division 1 schools—emphasize precision and teamwork over somersaulting for the spotlight. During classes for 3- to 18-year-olds, they demonstrate acrobatic skills that build both strength and a sense of sportsmanship. Students rehearse maneuvers from front tumbles to back handsprings, looking to their coaches and recorded videos for feedback on their form. An 8 to 1 ratio of tumblers to teachers ensures that they each receive personalized, positive attention.
