Schaffer’s Mill, a 475-acre, 400-homesite gated community and private golf club located just east of Truckee was formerly known as Timilick Tahoe. Named after the “Father of Truckee,” George Schaffer, Schaffer’s Mill pays homage to Mr. Schaffer, his ideals and vision. New Martis Partners acquired the exceptional but beleaguered property in January 2011 and set about to rebrand and reposition the community. Open since 2008, the golf course at Schaffer’s Mill was recognized as the “#1 Best New Private Course in California” by Golfweek magazine. The Miller and Harbottle design weaves its way through the towering pines with two distinctly memorable nine-hole experiences. The Meadow nine ambles through firs, spruce and Ponderosas at the base of a ridge, while the Mountain nine showcases elevation changes of up to 400 feet, with 360 views of the Martis Valley, Lookout Mountain and the Carson Range. The par-71 course plays to over 7,000 yards.New Martis Partners is a Dallas-based real estate development firm. The firm’s multi-disciplined leaders have more than 75 years of experience behind their vision to create communities with lasting value.
