UltraStar Cinemas cossets moviegoers in cushy seating as they enjoy Hollywood hits alongside buttery servings of popcorn. Film buffs can peruse the current showtimes to handpick an action-packed flick, romantic comedy, or chilling thriller featuring inexplicably aggressive hamsters. The concession stand outfits moviegoers with snacks, drinks, and buckets filled with warm kernels, keeping stomach grumblings to a minimum during showings and providing crunchy projectiles in case of sudden younger-sibling attacks.
StoneRidge Country Club’s 18th hole is almost an island green; a pond to the left and an oversized bunker to the right surrounds it, leaving only a slim parcel of grass to access the actual putting surface. The 350-yard par 4 finale is just one of the challenging holes found on the Ted Robinson design, a layout that often leaves golfers staring down tricky lies or into the souls of nervous irons. For more than half a century, golfers have flocked to the private club to test their shot-making skills on the course's eclectic features, which include drastic elevation changes, interspersed ponds, and narrow fairways cleaved between rows of mature arbores.
PGA professional Mike Feeney and a fleet of golf aces roam the grounds and are available for lessons to teach players how to improve their swings and approach different course conditions. Golfers can practice their techniques at the driving range’s 18 hitting stations, working up an appetite before dropping by the clubhouse restaurant for a snack or meal from the dinner menu of classic grill fare and upscale entrees.
StoneRidge Country Club also entertains members with a 25-meter swimming pool, complete with a wading pool and jacuzzi. Guests looking to transform their backstroke into a groundstroke can engage in friendly competition on the nine tennis courts, seven of which are lighted for nighttime play or when the solar system's dormant sun is blocking the good one.
