Schaffer’s Mill Club (formerly Timilick Tahoe) 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. The par 71 course plays to over 7,000 yards and is considered by many as the finest golf course in the Tahoe and Truckee area.
