About Us

Where is Carson Valley?

Just in case you were wondering, Carson Valley includes the 2 towns of Gardnerville and Minden. It is located south of Carson City and offers many options for locals and visitors!


Opened in 1965, Carson Valley Golf Course was designed by local architect Red Swift.  When the course was originally developed, it included the Carson Valley Country Club restaurant, tennis courts and a swimming pool.  Red Swift was also the original developer of the neighboring area that is known as the Ranchos and is today home for many people living in Gardnerville.

During the early 1970's, the golf course and restaurant became seperate businesses. In 2001, the current owners Tom & Manya Brooks purchased the golf course from Tom's parents who had owned the course since 1986.  The award winning golf course continues to rate as 'the locals favorite' and is open to the public for golf year round.
