Without regular use, a golf swing, like Grandma’s porch swing, will get rusty and squeak loudly, irritating the neighbors. Maintain a consistent pendulum cadence with today's Groupon: for $42, you get 18 holes of golf for two, including cart rental at Sonoma Ranch Golf Course in Las Cruces. This Groupon is valid for twilight tee times (after 2 p.m.) all week (up to a $70 value); prime-time play after 11 a.m., Monday–Thursday (up to an $84 value); or after 1 p.m., Friday–Sunday (up to a $100 value).
Sprawled across the fertile Mesilla Valley, with rugged views of the Organ Mountains towering overhead, Sonoma Ranch Golf Course is an emerald oasis in the New Mexico desert. The championship-caliber course, designed by internationally renowned architect Cal Olson, challenges seasoned golf pros and swing-shy novices alike with five tee boxes for each hole. Staying true to its desert taproots, this lush course, dotted only sporadically with water hazards, is rife with sand traps in which extravagant high-fives are earned for balls that successfully clear sandcastle trebuchets. Strap woods and irons onto the back of a motorized course cruiser and bask in the desert scenery from atop rolling hills.
Although not included in today’s Groupon, hungry golfers can putt and strut into Sonoma Ranch’s Sunset Grill for traditional country-club dining with southwestern flair for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or head to the fully stocked pro-shop for a new shillelagh to launch dimpled cosmonauts toward their little-green-hole homes.

Sonoma Ranch Golf Course
The peaks of the Organ Mountains rise above the Mesilla Valley, framing the immaculate greenery of Sonoma Ranch Golf Course's 18-hole, 7,028-yard layout. Designed by internationally renowned course architect Cal Olson, the course unfurls across the valley floor with undulating fairways, encroaching water hazards, and sprawling bunkers that force players to build sandcastle trebuchets to rescue errant golf balls. A lengthy course when played from the back tees, the grassy monolith also challenges players' short game with massive, bentgrass greens peppered with hard-to-read breaks. Clubbers can prepare for their pin-hunting voyage with a stint at the driving range or practice green, or stare down the treacherous fairways over a tasty nosh at the Sunset Grill, which overlooks the scenic expanse.
