The peaks of the Organ Mountains rise above the Mesilla Valley, framing the immaculate greenery of Sonoma Ranch Golf Course's 18-hole, 7,028-yard layout. Designed by internationally renowned course architect Cal Olson, the course unfurls across the valley floor with undulating fairways, encroaching water hazards, and sprawling bunkers that force players to build sandcastle trebuchets to rescue errant golf balls. A lengthy course when played from the back tees, the grassy monolith also challenges players' short game with massive, bentgrass greens peppered with hard-to-read breaks. Clubbers can prepare for their pin-hunting voyage with a stint at the driving range or practice green, or stare down the treacherous fairways over a tasty nosh at the Sunset Grill, which overlooks the scenic expanse.
Course at a Glance: * Designed by Cal Olson * 18-hole, par 72 course * Bentgrass greens * Length of 7,028 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 72.1 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 120 from the farthest tees * Three tee options
Gym Magic Sports Center & Preschool fosters healthy childhood growth with fun-focused fitness activities performed in a safe, noncompetitive environment. Teach future Phelpses how to thrive in the deep blue with a session of swim classes in the Lily Pad Swim School, a member of the US Swim School Association. In a shallow, indoor, kid-friendly pool filled with warm water to encourage comfort, instructors help novices grasp the basics and teach more experienced swimmers advanced techniques, such as the backward doggy-paddle and the walrus wade. Parent/child swim classes are offered to students from 6 months to 3 years old, and kiddies older than 3 learn to paddle sans guardian guidance. Classes run for roughly 30 minutes and maintain a maximum ratio of one teacher to five students to ensure optimal results and safety. Those already skilled in the trades of the sea can exercise their land legs in gymnastics classes for tumblers 12 months and older, with parent/child classes available for kids younger than 3. With skilled guidance, pint-sized acrobats will strengthen their bodies, minds, agility, balance, and likelihood of being the next Evel Knievel in an Olympic-size, foam-padded practice space.

While her husband was in Iraq, KinderJam founder El Brown struggled to entertain her toddler with high-energy, enriching activities that would prepare him for kindergarten. Drawing on her master's degree in early-childhood education and more than a decade as an educator for children around the globe, Brown devised a program that has since become a preschool franchise reaching more than 1,300 children in four countries. The KinderJam curriculum, designed to mesh with NAEYC framework and Developmentally Appropriate Practice standards, fosters creativity and school skills with vibrant props, creative movement, and boisterous music. For younger participants, weekly BabyJam sessions strengthen bonds between infants and parents through music-fueled tickling, cuddling, and trigonometry-proof analysis.
