History of Eagle Valley Golf Course
In 1974, Carson City acquired land and began construction on what is now Eagle Valley's East Course. The course was developed in response to an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandate prohibiting the City from discharging treated wastewater effluent to the Carson River. The City chose to establish a municipal golf course and irrigate the course with the effluent. Construction of Eagle Valley East was funded by EPA grants.
The land on which Eagle Valley East is located was deeded to the City with the condition that it be used for open space and public use.
For 20 years, Eagle Valley operated as a division of Carson City Parks and Recreation. Operations were structured as an enterprise fund. In 1985, Carson City took out $4 million in bonds to fund the construction of another 18 holes, known as Eagle Valley West. Construction of the West course was driven both by the growing popularity of recreational and tournament golf in Carson City and the need to find more uses for the increasing amount of City-generated treated wastewater effluent. The land used for Eagle Valley West was deeded to the City with golf as its express purpose.
In 1997, Carson City outsourced operations of Eagle Valley to a non-profit, the Carson City Municipal Golf Corporation (CCMGC). CCMGC was formed to manage the two courses and to promote youth golf education.
