Mild spring allows club to open earlier than ever before!
Schaffer’s Mill Club will open for Member play this Friday, April 18th – the earliest opening date in Club history. Thanks to a mild spring in the Truckee/Tahoe area, Schaffer’s Mill will open the front nine for play this Friday and the back nine on May 9th.
Entering the 2014 golf season, Schaffer’s Mill is now a completely private club, reserved for Members and their Guests only, but there are three important exceptions:
- Reciprocal Play with other Private Clubs
If you are a member of another private club, your Head Professional may arrange access through our Director of Golf, Clint Bassett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 530-582-6964.
- Monday Play
Throughout the season, Schaffer’s Mill will offer unaccompanied guest play on Mondays. If a holiday falls on Monday then the unaccompanied play will move to Tuesday for that week. Tee times are made by calling the Sports Shop at 530-582-6964. Because there are a limited number of tee times available throughout the season, we encourage you to plan your rounds early.
- Groups and Outings
Schaffer’s Mill will host a limited number of charitable, corporate and group outings throughout the season. Only a few of these group reservations remain for 2014. If you would like to inquire about availability, you may do so by contacting Clint Bassett at email@example.com or 530-582-6964.
“Our golf Members are excited to tee it up much earlier than usual,” said Director of Golf Clint Bassett. “Last year at this time, the golf course had patches of snow all over it. This year, the golf course is ready for play.”
The Schaffer’s Mill community features homesites from the $200’s, Mountain Lodges from the $900’s, and estate homes and luxury cabins from $1.2 million. Open since 2008 and named after the “Father of Truckee,” George Schaffer, Schaffer’s Mill pays homage to Mr. Schaffer, his ideals, and vision. Schaffer’s Mill is also home to the HGTV Dream Home 2014. This beautiful 3,200-plus square foot modern mountain retreat was featured on HGTV, and more than 5,000 people toured the home this past winter.
