“The improvements we have made have been critical. I think our players and community really feel heard and word has gotten out that we are investing in the course and want to make sure we see it to its full potential.” - General Manager Ken Stotts

Golf play at Sunridge Golf and Recreations, a more than 20-year-old golf course in Carson City, is up more than thirty percent since June of last year.

“The improvements we have made have been critical,” said General Manager Ken Stotts. “I think our players and community really feel heard and word has gotten out that we are investing in the course and want to make sure we see it to its full potential.”

Sunridge Golf and Recreations, which came under new ownership in February 2018, is a 19-hole course on the southern edge of Carson City near the intersection of Jacks Valley Road and U.S. Route 395. Over the course of the last several months, more than $500,000.00 has been invested into the course. A majority of the money was spent on new cutting equipment, as well as investing in 50 new Yamaha gas-powered golf carts which are better suited for the varying terrain and temperatures of an Eastern Sierra course.

“The greens and fairways are in better shape than they have been in for more than 15 years,” stated long-time member and Carson City resident Don Lindeman. “It’s a great value course and a beautiful location. I’m just glad someone like (Dan Oster) was able to see its value and is here to stay.”

Oster, who is originally from Carson City, is a regional real estate investor and commercial real estate broker. Since he took over in February, he enlisted regional experts Duncan Golf Management to assist with executing major improvements to the course. In addition to course improvements, Oster and his team have rolled out a new archery course, opened the trails to runners and walkers in the early mornings and at dawn, and just announced he will have additional activities added on an almost monthly basis including hatchet throwing and bounce houses for kids.
