The pristine, recently renovated fairways at Meadows Golf Club snake around 12 ponds that vary in size and factor into play-making decisions on at least 14 holes. Water makes itself a prevalent threat to golf balls that are afraid to swim on the 9th and 18th holes, where larger ponds loom ominously to finish out the front and back nines. The 9th, a 240-yard uphill par 3, demands steely nerved shots over two ponds: one that stretches past the tee box to the player's center-right and another that runs along the left all the way to the green. On the par 4 18th, players again face down a tee shot over water, this time being forced to keep their drive to the right to avoid water along the length of the fairway, as well as packs of ravenous ball washers that roam the course in search of prey.
Course at a Glance:
Dr. Jeffrey Wise specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck. Dr. Wise graduated from Yale College before attending med school at Cornell University and completing his residency at the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated from Penn with the department’s highest award for research and innovation in his field, and he now teaches facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at the New York University School of Medicine. When he’s not lecturing students, publishing medical articles, or fine-tuning his surgical skills on miniature dolls, Dr. Wise can be found at New Jersey Facial Plastic Surgery, repairing broken noses, pinning back protruding ears, and lifting eyelids and faces. He also subtly improves appearances with minimally invasive laser tattoo removal, facial peels, and Botox.
Using a powerful peroxide paste and blue plasma light, the Zoom! teeth-whitening treatment erases years of stains from coffee, smoking, wine, and asphalt-related mishaps. One of the qualified dentists or hygienists will administer a full examination before applying the proprietary whitening solutions in three 15-minute sessions (all take place during the same visit). During that time, all you have to do is relax and think about how you'll soon be able to safely spelunk through caves without a flashlight, as well as moonlight as a faux moon. Once the simple procedure is complete, your chompers will whiten by an average of eight shades. Results typically last more than a year.
Originally founded by a group that includes retired pro boxer Danny Campbell, TITLE Boxing Club offers total-body workouts that blend boxing, kickboxing, and fitness. After donning tape and gloves, students can greet a 100-pound heavy bag with a barrage of kicks, jabs, crosses, hooks, and unkind words. Each of the club's trainers focuses on a different area, such as technicality, core and balance, or moderate- to high-intensity training. Other equipment around the facility includes a boxing ring, speed bags, and double-end bags, as well as free weights and cardiovascular machines.
Bally enshrines exercise classes, calorie-burning equipment, and a fitness-focused staff within its sanctuaries of health. A 30-day membership includes access to a spread of group exercise classes, including Pilates, Reaction Cycling, and Step Fitness (class offerings vary by location). For self-guided worker-outers, cardio equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, cross-trainers, and stair climbers torch calories while entertaining the brain with video entertainment and integrated music systems that occasionally whisper quotes from Charles Atlas. Bally also boasts an array of strength machines, free weights, and small-apparatus equipment, and grants gym-goers access to on-site locker rooms, showers, and, at some locations, a pool and steam room. Visit each location's webpage for a list of specific amenities and the lineup of classes.
