Martis Camp Club golf course in Truckee, California

The Martis Camp Club is one of the Lake Tahoe area's newest upscale residential golf communities.

Located in Truckee, Calif., about 10 miles north of Lake Tahoe, the development spans 2,100 acres in the Martis Valley and at the base of the Northstar at Tahoe Ski Resort. In fact, a ski lift, the "Martis Express," serves the community directly for ski-in/ski-out service.

Martis Camp also features a private Tom Fazio-designed course, which officially opened in the spring of 2008. The course stretches to a maximum yardage of more than 7,700 yards (with five sets of tees), though the course does feature a good amount of elevated tee shots and plays at an altitude of 5,900-6,500 yards.

The Martis Camp Club golf course features many heavily wooded holes and greens with mountain backdrops, while the par-3 17th green sits on rock outcroppings on a steep slope. Also near the golf club is an 18-hole putting course designed by Dick Bailey.

For real estate, there are only 653 home sites (lots start at about $400,000) among the 2,100 acres, making for a very low-density build. Martis Camp's permanent clubhouse facility, which will overlook the golf course's 18th green, is slated to open on July fourth weekend of 2011 and will feature a full-service spa and dining facilities among other amenities.

Brandon Tucker is the Sr. Managing Editor for GolfPass and was the founding editor of Golf Advisor in 2014, he was the managing editor for Golf Channel Digital's Courses & Travel. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and nearly 600 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.
