Cottonwoods and willows reach toward the skies across the nine holes of Fallon Golf Course, their towering branches providing natural evidence of the course's 55-year history. Adding to the scenery is the Carson River, which runs alongside the course, providing a home to wildlife such as white egrets, cottontails, and quails. The river flows beside the third hole and cuts directly in front of the second green, while a smaller waterway cuts the fairways on holes five and seven. Before rounds, golfers can warm up at a practice green or stop by the driving range to pick up tees, dip them in bronze, and sew them into an intimidating sweater vest.
