The Bold Type's Aisha Dee & Nikohl Boosheri Tease What's Next for Kat & Adena
In an exclusive chat with E! News, Aisha Dee and Nikohl Boosheri hinted at what's to come for their characters in the final season of The Bold Type. While the two characters aren't currently an item on the Freeform hit, the season five trailer certainly teased a possible reunion for Kat and Adena. So, when we sat down with Aisha and Nikohl to discuss the series' final season we had to ask about their characters' romantic fate. Although the twosome didn't spoil anything, they did assure us that Kadena will be getting closer.
California is big, bold and beautiful. And while not everyone wants to live there, it seems almost everyone wants to visit. For golfers who want the quintessential California experience, CordeValle delivers.
The 1700-acre golf club and boutique resort, located in San Martin about 30 minutes south of San Jose, offers 18 holes of golf, 49 luxurious suites, tennis, bocce, pool, two restaurants, meeting and banquet rooms, a spa and access to the adjacent Clos LaChance Winery.
The course opened in 1999 with a Robert Trent Jones Jr. design that plays through an oak-dotted valley surrounded by golden foothills. It ranks No. 7 in California onfor public-access layouts, is No. 52 among and is tied for No. 69 among
MMQB: Joe Burrow and the Long Road Back
Behind the scenes of the Bengals QB’s recovery. Plus, Julio Jones’s market, Vinatieri’s legacy and more. Back in December, with the league ramping up its COVID-19 protocols, the Bengals, like so many other teams, were forced to make their Saturday night-before-the-game meetings virtual. And in doing so, Cincinnati coach Zac Taylor, offensive coordinator Brian Callahan and quarterbacks coach Dan Pitcher sensed an opportunity.They knew their franchise quarterback, Joe Burrow, was isolated and immobilized far away, north of Los Angeles, in Santa Monica, with a torn ACL and MCL.
Like California, everything about the course is big and bold. The bunkers are enormous, flashed and ornate. The shaping of fairways, greens and surrounds is sharp and dramatic. There are acres and acres of lush green rough between holes. Miles of concrete cart paths are hidden by an elaborate series of mounds and planted trees.
First-time guests are likely to be drawn to the holes that climb into and descend from the foothills (Nos. 6-9 and 13-17) that afford long views across the property. With multiple plays, one will learn where to miss and how best to score. Moving the ball left to right is one advantage, as 14 of the 18 holes set up well for a fade. It is a course fit for members but capable of challenging the game’s best. And it has – over the years CordeValle has hosted events run by each of the three primary golf organizations in the U.S.:

But as is the case with all courses, reinvestment over time is needed. In recent years the club decided that to be the best moving forward, it should look to the past.
Funded by owner Hasso Plattner (founder of SAP and owner of the San Jose Sharks) and guided by Jones Jr., the club has refreshed the course with the original vision as the guiding light. Tees have been leveled, original fairway lines restored, greens resurfaced with new Pure Distinction bent grass and fairways re-grassed with perennial ryegrass. The bunkers have been updated with new liners and Augusta-white sand, and supplemental irrigation was added for the bunker surrounds.
The results produce a technicolor experience of deep green grass and bright white bunkers contrasting the golden hills. It is an experience that saw membership sales increase by 40 percent in 2020 despite the extreme impact the Covid shutdown had on the resort side.
Opinion: Naomi Osaka's shocking French Open withdrawal offers lessons for all involved
Naomi Osaka's well-being is more important than any tennis match, but the way this has played out has done no favors for anyone involved. Osaka, after winning the last two Grand Slam events, won’t get a chance to make it three in a row and prove herself on clay, where she’s apparently had a crisis of confidence this year. The French Open will surely come off to many as insensitive for going to such great lengths to enforce its rules. And fans across the world who like watching Osaka play tennis won’t get the opportunity to do so on one of the sport’s biggest stages.
The investments won’t stop there. The club is working on the practice facility and aims to re-grass the roughs with perennial ryegrass in the near future.
The club is taking the same approach with operations. After years affiliated with Rosewood Hotels, CordeValle has returned to its origins as a self-managed facility.
The team leading CordeValle is as diverse as the experience members and guests receive at the club. General manager Luca Rutigliano from Italy, general manager of club operations Lloyd Martindale from England and director of resort operations Marcel Eichenberger from Switzerland each worked around the world prior to settling in at CordeValle.
Recent golf improvements, an upcoming room renovation scheduled for next year and an engaging hospitality team have CordeValle positioned to offer members and guests a world-class California experience for years to come.MORE:
