Everything is all about lavender this spring at the Spa at Turf Valley. Lavender is more than just a fragrant and beautiful flower; it offers wonderful benefits and can be used to treat anxiety, depression, exhaustion, and insomnia among many other things. Our Spring Spa specials include a lavender-focused massage, facial, and Vichy shower.
Our Spring Bloom Massage features Vintage Lavender aromatherapy massage oil to induce calmness and reduce stress. Your feet will be exfoliated with a lavender sugar scrub to slough away winter skin. Massages assist to ease pain, improve your sleep, boost your immune system, raise alertness, and curb headaches. Sugar scrubs get rid of excess oil and dead skin cells, and with the combination of lavender it will leave you with noticeably soft and smooth skin.
The Spring Bloom Facial features a fruit enzyme to exfoliate and a lavender masque to nourish your skin. A hand treatment using Vintage lavender Shea butter lotion, known for providing vitamins A and E, with a warm herbal wrap will also be included with your facial treatment. Facials are not only cleansing, but they also increase your circulation and offer emotional and anti-aging benefits.
Enjoy a Spring Bloom Vichy Shower, which will exfoliate your body with Vintage Lavender bath salts, followed by a warm Vichy shower and application of lavender-rich Shea cream. A Vichy shower allows you to be showered and rinsed while lying down for a refreshing, relaxing, and rejuvenating experience.

As a family owned and operated business, it is especially important to the management and staff of Turf Valley to strive toward a better, greener Earth for ourselves, our children, grandchildren and generations to come. Earth Day is less than one week away and on April 22 the world will go green as we recognize the importance of taking care of the beauty and health of our planet.
Earth Day Activities
Commute to work – Take the bus, ride the metro, bike or walk to work. Leave your car at home for one day, reduce your carbon footprint, and get some exercise! The Maryland Transit Administration offers commuter buses into Baltimore and Washington, D.C. to ease your Earth Day commute.
Go on a nature hike – Appreciate Earth’s beauty by taking your friends or family on a relaxing nature walk. This would be an excellent time to talk to your children about why it’s so important to take care of the Earth and how they can help!
Sign up for e-bills – Most banks, utility and credit card companies offer online bank statements and payments. Eliminate paper waste, receive statements quicker and pay conveniently through online services.
Celebrate Earth Day Every Day
Replace light bulbs – Replace your current bulbs with fluorescent lighting. Fluorescent light bulbs are energy-efficient bulbs that last much longer than traditional bulbs and also help to reduce your home energy bill.
Implement a recycling program – Start recycling at home or the office! Recycling reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills, saves energy, and prevents pollution. Here’s a great article to walk you through the steps of how to start recycling.
Plant a garden – Help freshen Earth’s air by planting your own front or back yard garden. Plants release fresh oxygen into the atmosphere so you can simultaneously give to the planet and beautify your yard!
Our Commitment to Earth
Through environmental commitment and green initiatives, Turf Valley instills an attitude of personal environmental responsibility throughout all possible aspects of our business.
We installed hand dryers in our public restrooms that use 80 percent less energy than traditional hand dryers and reduce paper usage.
Nearly 75 percent of our guest room shower heads were converted to water-saving models.
Recycling receptacles were added to all guest rooms.
An herb garden was planted on property outside of Alexandra’s Restaurant.

5. Mismatch Bridesmaids
Mismatch bridesmaid dresses have always been a top wedding trend. Mismatch dress colors, shades, styles, or accessories to add a fun and creative element to your bridal party.
The do-it-yourself era is going strong! Adding DIY elements to your wedding helps save money, and they’re a great way bridesmaids or family can contribute with a very personal touch. Turn place cards, guest books, centerpieces or photography backdrops into a fun DIY project.
Mint is definitely in! We’re seeing mint invitations, decor, wedding cakes, floral arrangements, bridesmaid dresses, shoes and more. The cool, soft color also symbolizes rebirth, providing an even greater reason to incorporate it in your wedding.
2. 1920s Vintage
It may be 2013, but it is absolutely okay to dress like it’s 1920. There’s something about vintage pieces that portray pure romance – and the trend seems here to stay.
Lace is the epitome of romance and elegance. It’s a timeless wedding trend seen on brides, bridesmaids, cakes, invitations and more. Embrace the lace!

With so much attention on the U.S. Golf Association’s recent changes to groove rules for golf wedges, there have been some misconceptions on how the golf ball actually spins off the face of a wedge. As you will learn in this video, grooves actually do much more of the work than any other part of this important club.
The grooves on a wedge channel moisture and debris away from the golf club’s face to permit better friction and grip. High-quality golf clubs should also incorporate a surface element that allows for extra roughness on the face.
Whether you want to hit the links between business meetings and conferences or are planning a weekend golf getaway, the two award-winning courses at Turf Valley are designed for expert golfers and novices alike. If you live in Baltimore, Frederick, Washington D.C., or Columbia, you can even schedule a day visit to our convenient facilities! Call us at (443) 364-9022 today to learn more.
