Carson Valley Women’s Club season opener set for April 3

Women golfers of all skill levels are welcome to join the Carson Valley Women’s Golf Club for a season that starts on April 3.

Club tournament play at the Carson Valley Golf Course is held Tuesday mornings from April until mid October. The weekly events offer an opportunity to meet “women from the area who share a similar enthusiasm for the sport.”

Guest days will also be available during the season for non-members. If those players do not have a partner, one will be provided.

The club is also introducing the G9 Ladies, a weekly group playing nine holes at the Carson Valley Golf Course on late Thursday afternoons beginning in May. The group is open to women of any age who may not have the time to play a full round during the morning, or would rather play a quick nine in the late afternoon. A brief golf lesson is offered by head pro Beau Server.

Applications may be found online at the club’s website. Visit the Carson Valley Golf Course pro shop or call 265-3181 for information.
