El Rancho Verde Golf Club has spent half a century basking in the majesty of the surrounding snow-capped mountains, testing golfers on a challenging course without disrupting their inner peace. The par 72 course boasts holes to make both advanced stick-swivelers and novice wedge-wielders feel at home. From the longest tees, balls can race down 6,844 yards of fairway, along pools that reflect the towering peaks and lush greenery where native owls wait eagerly to adopt lost golf balls and hatch them as their own.

"I am artistry"—that's the translation of Je M'appelle Artistry, as well as owner Shonny's philosophy. Shonny works as a photographer, designer, and instructor, often combining all three passions. Snapping photos with her Nikon D600, she captures intimate boudoir scenes, romantic wedding images, and fanciful kids' shots, focusing on portraits. She extends this love of portraits into group or private workshops, where students learn to incorporate natural light and elements into their pictures. Her photos have been published in the cloth-diapering book Changing Diapers; she also designs her own cloth-diaper and clothing patterns.
The Corona Symphony Conservatory was born out of necessity. A group of string musicians realized that local band programs—while great at showcasing brass, woodwinds, and whatever that thing is in the conductor's hand—didn't give attention to violins, violas, or cellos. So, these talented musicians-turned-instructors designed a complete music curriculum for players of all skill levels. Today, they emphasize classical music in small group classes, teaching proper technique and music theory. Corona Symphony Conservatory is also home to a large performance ensemble, who shares their passion with the community at large.
Fountains whisper to themselves amid low emerald hillocks. Groups of golfers confer over tees at the ninth hole, where the fairway drops off to the left, into the cool mirror of a small lake. Architect Ted Robinson, who has designed more than 170 courses, draws heavily on the many uses of water in his creations. With mountains spearing the horizon in the distance, golfers cut beneath swaying palm trees. The scents of grilling burgers drift down from the clubhouse, and during Sunday-morning brunches, champagne glasses clink occasionally like a shy xylophonist.
Gas-powered karts propel participants forward at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour in three driving sessions that include instruction from karting professionals. With 3/4 miles of rubber-thirsty track and 14 hair-raising turns, CalSpeed’s world-class karting circuit awaits those brave drivers who yearn to conquer its high banks and breakneck straightaways free of malicious banana peels. Participants earn their racing stripes in swift Sodi karts packed with the galloping power of 15 horses, carving up the purpose-built track as if it were an asphalt turkey.
