Here's a golf course that looks like a prehistoric rock garden. Luckily, it plays like a something out of Eden. Between the stark, boulder-strewn Santa Catalina Mountains looming on the east and the Tortolita Mountains to the north, you half expect to see dinosaurs roaming just around the doglegs here.

A quarter mile from the Estancia del Zorro-the ranch of the fox-flows a stream my friend Brian O'Keefe calls the best spring creek he has ever fished. This is saying something. O'Keefe, who lives in the Oregon high desert, has made an enviable life of searching the world for great fishing.

The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and the Ford Shelby GT500 Cobra
A neighbor of mine counts a late-model six-speed Corvette coupe among his household's half dozen cars and nine motorcycles.
