Schaffer’s Mill Golf & Lake Club was recognized as the “#1 Best New Private Course in California” by GolfWeek magazine in 2008, and the accolades have continued to come in ever since. The Johnny Miller & John Harbottle design weaves its way through the towering pines as if painted with an artist’s brush, with two distinctly memorable nine-hole experiences.

The outward or “Meadow” nine ambles through firs, spruce and Ponderosas at the base of a ridge, while the inward “Mountain” nine showcases elevation changes of up to 400 feet, with magnificent 360° views of the Martis Valley, Lookout Mountain and the Carson Range.
