Reno’s new disc golf course tees off

Disc Golf has been part of Reno’s master plan for years but never became a reality – until now, with the partial opening of “The Ranch” at Rancho San Rafael Park.

The Ranch, Reno’s disc golf course, is under construction at the north end of Rancho San Rafael Park behind the Reno Sports Complex. Nine holes are currently open and the other nine will be installed following additional community fundraising. The effort is being spearheaded by the Reno Disc Golf Association.

Disc Golf is on a steep growth curve, with more than 100 new courses installed each year. The game doesn’t require deep instruction or investment, so it is approachable. All you need is a disc or two, and a good attitude.

There are now more than 1,300 disc golf courses in the U.S., with hundreds more around the world. The Ranch is Reno’s first disc golf course, although there are several others in the Reno-Tahoe area

    Nice to have a reason to head up to Reno from Las Vegas. The more courses the better.
