So many elements have come together to create the allure and success of Northern California’s premier four seasons private resort community. The desirability of Martis Camp is due in part to a myriad of year round activities designed for the entire family, combined with some of the best world class skiing and golf, along with so many other community activities all situated in the heart of the Sierra Mountains. What sets Martis Camp apart from all others is this amazing gated community, made up of a stunning mix of contemporary and modern mountain designed homes is located just a few miles from the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe and conveniently located just minutes from the Truckee airport where many owners find it convenient to access the area by private plane!
Martis Camp’s private Tom Fazio Championship Golf Course has been named one of America’s top 50 modern golf courses by Golf Week and Forbes has named it one of the ’12 Best Private Golf Communities in America’ comparing it with private communities like Shooting Star in Jackson, WY., Red Sky Ranch just outside of Vail, CO., and the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, MT.
Playing this private course is such a special treat and taking advantage of playing with a professional caddy can really help with your play. Many times through the course, the caddy will suggest how a fairway or green will react to your shot. At first your caddy’s advice may seems hard to understand, however after one or two holes where that advice turns out to be accurate, you will admit your caddy really knows how to play the course.
Golf Professionals are available to assist at every level of experience and for everyone interested in playing or practicing, regardless of age or ability. The Martis Camp staff will organize instruction, clinics, club fitting and tournaments for family as well as local charities. Need to practice your putting? There is an 18 hole Putting Park that will provide a solid challenge for your skills and playing it should give you that pace needed to best your score on the Championship course.
When you’re ready to hit the slopes, Northstar has a ski lift called the Martis Camp Express that drops down Lookout Mountain for the private use of Martis Camp members and guests. You can even take a private shuttle ride to the Lookout Mountain Lodge where your skis and boots will be ready for your day!
Another famous treat for Martis Camp is known as the Family Barn! A family friendly restaurant, soda fountain, basketball court, bowling alley, pool tables, art school, movie theater and more are housed in a big red Family Barn. Outside there is an outdoor stage and amphitheater, swimming pool, jetted tubs, soaking tubs and sun bathing deck.
The Camp Lodge is a luxurious day spa with massage, saline lap pool, soaking tubs, locker rooms, exercise center, and a beautiful Grill restaurant offering formal or casual dining atop the 18th green of the Tom Fazio golf course.
When you are ready for Lake Tahoe, a private Beach Shack in Tahoe Vista is just 10 minutes away for your convenience. This wonderful private lakefront retreat is an additional special feature of owning a home in Martis Camp. You will enjoy the Southern exposure on a sandy beach, casual dining and all the toys with valet service for toys as well as your car!
