With the peaks of Turtleback Mountain lifting from the horizon just six miles away, the 18-hole Sierra Del Rio Golf Course traverses 7,331 yards of lush fairways buttressed by seven lakes. The course's immaculate greenery provides a stark, scenic contrast to the surrounding desert highland, and the high and dry air makes perfect conditions for adding distance to towering drives and height to 6-iron baton twirls. Brambly thickets loom on the edges of most fairways, threatening ill-struck orbs as players work through many high-risk, high-reward shots that earned the course the No. 9 spot on Golf Digest's most recent Best in State Rankings. On the 610-yard, par 5 10th hole, golfers must weigh the temptation to lay up or go for the green in two against the supreme difficulty of carrying 260 yards of grazing caddies and unforgiving water. A sprinkling of 89 bunkers further complicates pin-hunting expeditions, and seven tee options temper the course's relatively difficult nature.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Distance of 7,331 yards from farthest tees * Course rating of 74.6 from farthest tees * Slope of 140 from farthest tees * Seven tee options:m]]

Unlike mud runs before it, the 5K course of the Recon Run is adorned with boot-camp-style obstacles such as piles of tires, muddy trenches, and walls that runners must jump, scramble, and pull themselves over. The military theme comes as no surprise; after all, proceeds from this charity race support the Semper Fi Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides financial support to injured and ill members of the US Armed Forces and their families. Upon completing the course, successful recruits earn T-shirts, dog tags, and beer that they can enjoy with fellow racers at the finish line.

Five kilometers of mud stands between a pack of runners and the title of Gladiator. The Ultimate Gladiator Dash obstacle course winds through trees and hills before finally completing its loop, but the real challenge lies in the mud pits and numerous other obstacles that block the runners at every turn. Challengers must conquer 9-foot inclines, leap blindly over sandbag walls, climb ropes, and navigate water obstacles, including a 100-foot water slide. After vanquishing the obstacles and reaching the finish line, participants head to the after party for music and beer.

At School of American Kenpo, third-degree black belt Ron Hickey calls on 15 years of martial-arts training to instill each student with not only strength and technique, but also character, confidence, and inner peace in every class he leads. Though the roots of traditional American Kenpo run deep in the studio, Hickey encourages his students to blaze their own trails in their development in the martial art. From four-year-old fighters just starting out to older athletes with hopes of achieving a black belt, School of American Kenpo seeks to help every student achieve their personal, fitness, and self-defense goals.

Elephant Butte Lake is beautiful to look at—but it's more fun to explore. That's the idea behind Sports Adventure Marina. The company rents watercraft to people eager to spend a few hours out on the water, whether that means lying back on the sun deck of a pontoon boat, speeding behind a ski boat in a tube, or riding the wakes on a jet ski.
