Schaffer’s Mill golf course was recognized as the “#1 Best New Private Course in California” by Golfweek Magazine in 2008, and the accolades have continued ever since. And, to make your Club experience even better, they have designed the most member-friendly club structure in Tahoe, featuring a remarkably low initiation fee and modest club dues. This is a new breed of private club living that our members have referred to as ‘second-home ownership that doesn’t own you.’

This year Schaffer’s Mill will improve even further, as they officially open a Sports Shop, Wellness Center and resort-inspired pool complex. Designed with hot tubs nestled in the rock outcroppings, outdoor fire pits for roasting marshmallows or sharing a glass of wine, a lush event lawn for outdoor concerts, and ample open-air dining venues, the Club Village will be the perfect gathering place for family members of all ages.

At Schaffer’s Mill, it’s all about two things—family and fun. The wealth of spring, summer and fall activities are centered around the most famous Lake in North America. With the unique Club amenities at Schaffer’s Mill, you can enjoy all that the area has to offer in grand fashion with convenient access to five major ski areas and a plethora of golf, including Schaeffer’s Mill course.
