I am working with clients interested in comparing the communities in the area, and the amenities they offer. I wrote this comparative analysis of the different golf communities, Lahontan has been popular as it is cheaper to buy than build, inventory is hig
Martis Camp is the most expensive, and exciting, of all the communities when it comes to both the club membership costs and real estate. With that being said, I do believe it is the â€œcreme de la crÃ¨meâ€ in our Lake Tahoe Area, boasting the largest club house (55,000 sq ft completed spring of 2011), family barn (20,000sq ft including bowling lane, movie theater,) swimming complex, outdoor amphitheater, exclusive ski access to Northstar Ski Resort, lost library, 20 + miles of walking/hiking trails (x-country skiing in the winter), 18 hole putting course + Golf course, 3 acre fishing lake. The feel upon entering the community, is like driving into a national park. The majority of the home sites are larger than an acre up to 5 acre parcels, perfect for those looking to build an â€œestate homeâ€. There are a few homes for sale at the moment starting in the mid $2million range, the home sites start just under $500,000 up to $2million for the ski lots.

Another new Golf Course Community is Grays Crossing. The clubhouse, restaurant and golf shop at Grays Crossing are much smaller when compared to Martis Camp or Lahontan, but will appeal to many who like tastefully built yet understated design. The Golf Course is fun, playable and will be enjoyed by all family members. Grays Crossing owners have complete access to the very comprehensive Tahoe Mountain Club, has their own private clubhouse and restaurant. The Tahoe Mountain Club offer the private restaurant at Northstar (Schaffers Camp) and another on the water at Lake Tahoe, The Wild Goose. The Alpine Club in the new Village at Northstar allows members to store their skis with the Ski Valet for the season, and enjoy free shuttle access to the Village at Northstar so you donâ€™t have to carry all of your equipment back and forth every day or worry about parking. As a member of The Golf Club at Grays Crossing you also are able to play Old Greenwood and Coyote Moon for cart fee only. That means you get to enjoy 3 courses for the price of one. There are around 400 home sites at Grays Crossing.
