Sculpted against a backdrop of desert scrubland and sandstone mountain crags, the verdant fairways of Conestoga Golf Club can seem, at first glance, like alien guests. But course designer Gary Panks merged these disparate features into a seamless landscape, where rocky outcrops circle greens like seats at an amphitheater, fairways rise and fall along with the canyon depths, and a solitary water hazard protects the green on the par-three tenth and gives thirsty carts a chance to rehydrate in the middle of the round. The course?which measures a titanic 7,232 yards from the tips?has earned a host of glowing reviews and awards from outlets including Golf Magazine, Golf Week,, and Links Magazine.

Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
