With winter settling in like carpet-spilled gravy, now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home-care projects underway. Pick up a Steel Grip six-piece screwdriver set for $8.49, a VPT rip hammer for $6.29, and a whole bunch of screws, anchors, and bolts (prices vary), and you'll be ready to finally mount every buffalo nickel and steel penny in your coin collection. Illuminate the newfound décor with a 12-pack of Ace light bulbs ($21.48), the better to see by as you make use of a Purdy four-piece painters kit ($23.99). If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge.
Like the Vegas Strip 10 miles down the road, Wildhorse Golf Club arose from a stretch of desert wasteland, and along the way, developed a vibrant and extravagant history. The 18-hole course opened for play in 1959 before original developer Hank Greenspun sold the property—then called Paradise Valley—to famed aviator and uncanny Leonardo Dicaprio impersonator Howard Hughes 9 years later, forever steeping the turf in the sprinklers of stardom. The course would undergo numerous name changes over the years, and even hosted the PGA’s Sierra Invitational in the ‘70s, until finally settling down as Wildhorse Golf Club in 1994.
Today, the course is home to lush fairways that appear as oases to the surrounding desert sand, punctuated by eight glimmering water hazards. The ninth hole presents a prime example of the course’s delicate balancing act, luring golfers along a fairway that narrows into an isthmus just ahead of the green, bookended by two large lakes. The ninth and the fourth hole occupy spots on the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Fantasy 18, composed of the best 18 holes in the Las Vegas area that aren’t slots.
In October of 2011, Wildhorse was also designated an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, a distinction earned for environmental excellence and a commitment to conservation of natural resources.
