Tucked away on 475 acres of tree-lined mountain meadows, between Northstar and Truckee, lies the Shaffer’s Mill private golf course community. Formerly known as Timilick golf course, the community was renamed to Schaffer’s Mill Golf Course in 2011 to commemorate George Schaffer, the man known as the “Father of Truckee.” At the edge of Martis Valley, where Schaffer first opened his saw mill, this growing community offers up countless activities throughout all four seasons.
Hike, bike or snowshoe through miles of trails. Spend a summer afternoon staying cool in the pool. Relax with a massage after a day on the hill, then end the night around a roaring fire with marshmallows all around. From the new North Clubhouse Village to hundreds of acres of open space, you’ll never be at a loss for activities—unless you want to be.
Schaffer's Mill Golf & Lake Club offers a brand new Club House facility with a restaurant, bar and fitness facility, swimming pool, shuttle service, stocked fishing pond, and even a private yacht on Lake Tahoe.
