Another one of Carson City’s finest is Empire Ranch.
Set alongside the Carson River, this course occupies more than 250 acres that offer magnificent views of the surrounding valley and the Eastern Sierras.
Target golf is the name of the game out here. Holes wander through natural wetlands that swallow up errant shots.
The good news is there are five sets of tees to choose from so the course is playable for everyone, including beginners and high handicappers.
After you’re done with your round, stop by Mallards Restaurant for a beer and bite while you recount the day.
