Eagle Valley Disc Golf Association

In early 2015 the Carson City Board of Supervisors set aside 100 acres west of Flint Drive and Rifle Range Road for a disc golf course complex. This complex at build out will have two tournament courses and a beginner course. The Carson City Parks and Recreation Department is working with Eagle Valley Disc Golf Association, which is an advocates group volunteering to design and provide labor, to construct the complex, and to maintain it. We, as disc golf advocates, desire to raise funds from our local community for disc baskets, tee box materials, hole signage, parking, and sanitation services.

Any donation - whether it is $50, $100, $500, or $750 towards our project - would be appreciated and is tax deductible. However, a $1,000 sponsorship would provide your business with the following benefits:

  1. Your choice of the disc golf hole, depending on availability. Your donation would go towards construction of that hole.
  2. Your business would have a donor's plaque located near the hole's tee box, which would be permanent.
  3. Your business would get one year free advertising on the sign associated with the hole's tee box.

Eagle Valley Disc Golf Association is a true grass roots effort to provide a quality outdoor recreational facility for area residents and visitors to the Northern Nevada and California area. Through our agreement with the Foundation for Carson City Parks and Recreation (FCCPR, EIN # 47-4750761), a 501(c)(3) organization, your sponsorship is a tax-deductible investment in our community. Please make you check payable to FCCPR and mail it to FCCPR, P.O. Box 3266, Carson City, NV 89702. Please note "FCCPR - Disc Golf" on the memo line. For additional information, contact Dell Martin at 775-741-5233 or DellMartin61@gmail.com.


Carson City's First Disc Golf Course Nears Completion

(Article from the Late Fall 2018 Newsletter)


The Eagle Valley Disc Golf Association, along with the Carson City Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Department, is developing a 27-hole disc golf complex on 100 acres at the east edge of Carson City off of Flint Drive. In 2016, the Association, a group of volunteer advocates who designed and provide labor for the construction and maintenance of the complex, and the City jointly applied for a federally funded Land and Water Conservation Fund grant administered by the Nevada Division of Parks. The application was successful, and a $100,000 grant towards the construction of the course was awarded in 2017. Construction is underway and the course is expected to open sometime in early 2019.

View from a future hole on the course Construction of the Disc Golf Complex includes the development of course parking and related infrastructure, as well as the course itself. When complete, the complex will contain 2 distinct courses: a 9-hole, family-friendly, novice course tentatively named the "Pony Express Course," and a 27-hole championship-level course, tentatively named the "Stadium Course." Subject to official approval, the proposed name for the disc golf complex as a whole, will be the "Carson Ridge Disc Golf Complex."

The grassroots effort by the Eagle Valley Disc Golf Association to make the complex possible provides a brand new quality outdoor recreational facility for area residents and visitors. Visit the Eagle Valley Disc Association's Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/Eagle-Valley-Disc-Golf-Association-1683293901982554/. Contact the Disc Golf Association by email at gswifty1@gmail.com, or through the Foundation, at carsonparksfoundation@gmail.com. Hole sponsors and donations for the course's construction are still needed. Donations for the Disc Golf Complex, like other donations to the Foundation, are tax-deductible.
