In 1959, Robert Trent Jones Sr. completed work on Timberlane's 7100-yard, par-72 golf course near the west bank of the Mississippi, and it still stands as a friendly, challenging round in a pleasant, private setting. Mature oaks line the sides of each Bermuda-grass fairway, and in 2007, Timberlane re-surfaced its expansive greens with Tif Eagle turf, giving putts a new zip and helicopter pilots a new view. Before hitting the links, sharpen up your chipping, putting, pitching, pitch-shifting, and Super Bowl Shuffling on the all-grass practice range and putting green, or try the driving range nearby.

Upon arrival, patients discuss their countenance's history with a staff member before handing it over for scrubbing, ensuring that each session is appropriately tailored to account for sensitivity and loose glass eyes. After enjoying a manual cleaning by the hands of an aesthetician, faces find a temporary home under microdermabrasion machines, which aim to shuffle off expired cells to reveal the younger, healthy flesh waiting in the wings. Because wrinkles are caused in part by excess dead skin, microdermabrasion treatments may also reduce lines on the face.
