Location Details

Since 1965 Carson Valley Golf Course has been home to affordable, friendly golf. The cool rush of the Carson River and the shade from our giant cottonwood trees, give our golf course a very unique character. Our goal is to make golf fun! We have plenty of space for our serious golfers, but we want to make sure that you have a good time while you are here and leave with a smile on your face.

Don't let the yardage deceive you; it's a great challenge for golfers of all abilities. You get to hit across water
nine times over eighteen holes. Once a well-kept secret, the word is out, Carson Valley is a great place to live and play. Did we mention the beautiful views of the Sierras from the golf course, yes the Sierra Nevada mountains at Lake Tahoe, we get to enjoy their purple mountain majesty every day.

Location Details:
The golf course was built in 1965 and is 95 beautiful acres, located in the heart of Carson Valley. The Carson
River meanders right through it dividing it in 2 very picturesque pieces, with many views of the Sierra Nevada
mountain range.

Surrounding area accessibility:
The golf course is conveniently located 2 miles south of Gardnerville right off Hwy 395. There is parking at a
number of locations that allow for easy access to the course.
