At both of Cimarron Golf Resort's John Fought?designed courses, one massive, unblinking spectator watches on: the San Jacinto Mountain Range. Its massive rockfaces jut above the fairways and greens, adding visual drama to every westward drive and putt. Nodding to those rocky outcrops with its name, the championship-length Boulder course challenges golfers with 6,782 open yards, including a formidable 569-yard, par-five 18th hole. At the Boulder's sibling course, the Pebble, 17 par-threes tempt players with 17 chances for a hole-in-one. Before any round, a driving range with five target greens hosts swing rehearsals, on-site golf lessons, and clinics that help golfers hit farther and yell "Fore!" louder.

Boulder Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Length of 6,782 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 71.6 from the back tees * Slope rating of 122 from the back tees * Four tee options * Scorecard

Pebble Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 55 course * Length of 2,020 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 54.6 from the back tees * Three tee options

The snow-capped peaks of the San Jacinto Mountains peer over the treeline, creating a scenic backdrop to Cathedral Canyon Golf Club’s 18-hole course. Designed by prolific California course architect David Rainville—in consultation with Hall of Famer Billy Casper—the course winds across more than 6,500 yards dotted with ponds that reflect the distant mountains and the fearful grimaces of birds as they evade speeding tee shots. To prepare their swings for their next round, golfers can warm up at the club’s driving range or schedule a lesson with PGA Class A instructor Steve Creps.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,505 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 71.1 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 130 from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees per hole

While zipping around Xceleration Indoor Kart Racing's indoor go-kart track, there's only one thing drivers have to worry about: the competition. That's because the Italian-made go-karts are completely electric-powered, from their 48-volt engines to the lightning bolts that turn each kart on, which means they never release emissions.

Still, the speedy karts easily burn rubber inside Xceleration's 50,000-square-foot air-conditioned center, whose track is modeled after those used in Formula 1 races. Drivers can stop by for some quick laps or, in groups, partake in grand-prix-style competitions—after which the top three finishers receive trophies and pose for photos on a winner's podium. Drivers then unwind with soft drinks from Xceleration's concessions stand or games of pool inside the arcade.
