“This is a great way to offer the community an outdoor exercise game,” said Michael Plansky.
Plansky and a team of volunteers have been working to improve the quality of the course and are ready to host its first big event: A disc golf tournament with a festival vibe. The event will introduce the course to the public and give beginners a chance to learn about disc golf. There will be music, food trucks, clinics for beginners and more. Mayor Lori Bagwell is a special guest for a ribbon cutting ceremony.
“I’m super excited to showcase this beautiful outdoor recreation venue, and I think it’s going to be good for residents and visitors alike to show off the beauty of Carson City,” Bagwell said. “Thank you to all of those volunteers that had vision to make this a reality.”
She said it was an honor to work with the foundation for Carson City Parks and Recreation to make this a reality.
The event revolves around the disc golf tournament, and it will feel like a festival with live music, food trucks and more. There’s room for 72 players, and they can sign up at https://bit.ly/3RPqO4N.

“Come out and see this beautiful asset if you haven’t been out here,” Plansky said.
At around 2 p.m., the tournament will be down to eight players for the final nine holes. Attendees will be encouraged to go out to the course and watch the end of the tournament, so people could be inspired by the best players of the day, Plansky said. He hopes that is the recipe to get people into disc golf.
