Schaffer’s Mill Golf & Lake Club, formerly Timilick, is the “#1 Best New Private Course in California” as ranked by GolfWeek Magazine in 2010. The course weaves through the pines as if painted with an artist’s brush. The masterstrokes of the celebrated design team of Johnny Miller and John Harbottle created Schaffer’s Mill with two distinct nine-hole experiences. The front nine, or Meadow nine, ambles through firs, spruce and pine trees at the base of a ridge. The back nine, or the Mountain nine, has elevation changes of up to 400 feet, with magnificent views of the Martis Valley, Lookout Mountain and the Carson Range.
Schaffer’s Mill provides members with a number of luxury concierge services, including arrangements for on-site and off-site recreation, guest accommodations, fly fishing trips, boat rentals, travel reservations, child care and a Schaffer’s Mill shuttle pick-up to and from Northstar-at-Tahoe.
Of the community’s 475 acres, 63 percent of the property, or 296 acres, will remain open space.
Schaffer’s Mill sits adjacent to Northstar-at-Tahoe, where a new village and five-star hotel property have made it one of the country’s top year-round destination resorts. In addition, Truckee’s historic downtown, with world-class dining and boutique shops, is only four miles away, and Truckee’s airport, which services private aircraft, is located literally moments from the club
