The Other Guys
Yes, that's a helicopter within the driving range nets! Columbia Pictures film The Other Guys visited the Golf Club to shoot a helicopter and car chase scene on the driving range. The 2010 film stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
As part of his morning radio show, Don Imus and WFAN created an event that he dubbed "Fear at the Pier." The basketball courts and boxing ring at the Sports Center health club were transformed into an arena for a 3-round boxing match. With bleacher seating for 200, a catered sit-down breakfast for Imus Ranch donors and platform seating for commentators, the venue was converted into media-friendly boxing extravaganza.
Donald Trump's The Apprentice came to the Piers to film its much-anticipated Season 3 Finale. Recreating a mini summer Olympics, event planners at the Sports Center health club utilized the track, sand volleyball court, pool and basketball courts to stage this Olympic microcosm. A medal ceremony crowned winners in the boxing ring while the rock wall was cordoned off for catering and staging.
