After every session on the range, refreshments await guests in Green Valley's Cease Fire lounge, a cozy space equipped with a popcorn machine and large-screen television. In fact, that's one several at Green Valley's clubhouse, which sports three more large-screens, plus a 70-inch television for movie nights or sporting events. Elsewhere, visitors can gather in the game room for rounds of billiards, shuffleboard, and pinball. Besides its recreational offerings, Green Valley's monthly classes and events include more gun-focused sessions, such as "target bowling," during which participants fire at rows of bowling pins.
Mix N’ Mac celebrates comfort food by cooking and perfecting one staple: mac ‘n’ cheese. Visitors are encouraged to customize their own bowls with a variety of meats, veggies, and housemade cheese sauces. Alternatively, they can explore pretested specialty mac flavors. Diverse influences collide in the specialty options, which include a chili mac and an italian mac with basil and marinara sauce. The cheese gurus also savor the opportunity to singe a few taste buds with a spicy mac that drapes pepper jack over jalapeños and a Cajun creation featuring crushed red pepper and crawfish. The colors of Mix N’ Mac’s dining room match their signature creation, with deep-orange walls, chairs, and pieces of art reminiscent of cheese and cheese’s original birthplace, the sun.

Framed by the amber peaks of distant mountains, Wildhorse Golf Club's 18-hole course winds through rugged desert wilderness for 6,525 yards of challenging tee-to-green terrain. Eight ponds loom at the edges of seven holes, including the majestic ninth, where water hazards occupy both sides of the fairway as it draws nearer to the green, luring wayward approaches and contributing to the hole's rating as the course's most difficult. Sands, rocks, and tumbleweeds with dreams of becoming golf balls await misguided orbs in the unsown desert that flanks each pristine fairway, offsetting the course's lack of imposing tree lines.
Imbued with more history than Gene Sarazen's divot-tool time portal, the course counts Howard Hughes among its past owners and was once a regular stop on the PGA Tour, where players enjoyed its beautiful scenery and the compassionate waterfowl that helped earn the course honors as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
