Stake your claim at one of America’s newest golf communities.

Carson City, Nevada (outside Lake Tahoe): Bonanza was the second longest running western (behind Gunsmoke) on television. Set on the fictional Ponderosa Ranch, scripts centered on the Cartwright family and life on the Western Frontier. The title “Bonanza” is apropos. The term was used by miners upon discovering a large vein of silver. Six major bonanzas in the region marked the beginning of the Comstock Lode, the first major discovery of silver ore in the United States that, in turn, created immense fortunes for local mining companies.

“The land surrounding Clear Creek Tahoe was impetus behind Ponderosa Ranch,” explained Milward Bell-Bhatti, general manager. “It’s easy to understand why. Our community, about a 20-minute drive from both Incline Village and the ski slopes of Heavenly is surrounded by the largest national forest outside Alaska. Topography ranges from golden meadows fringed by Jeffrey pines to rocky outcroppings with 100-mile views.”

Made Of Principal And Purpose

Clear Creek Tahoe is one of the newest golf communities in the country with over $100 million invested, and more in the pipeline. Amenities include a Coore/Crenshaw designed golf course; Twin Pines Lake & Ski House, with a private pier and one of the longest beaches in Lake Tahoe; and Summit Camp, a perfect family getaway with swimming, fire pits, bocce, tennis, and pickleball courts. Now under construction is a Hart Howerton designed golf clubhouse.

“It’s a misnomer to say we are just golf,” continued Bell-Bhatti. “There are 14 ski resorts [seven of which are nationally ranked] within a 90-minute drive. Even our trail system is best in class with multiple options that let you wander where the wi-fi is weak.

“We are creating a club that is sustainable—both economically and environmentally. It’s our responsibility to protect and preserve this special site amidst the irreplaceable natural beauty of the Sierra and Lake Tahoe region.”

A Taxing Situation

Tahoe is an unusual destination, with a lake literally bisected by the state line. The California side features nearly the highest income tax rate in the country with a top income tax rate of 13.3 percent) The Nevada side, with its pristine eastern shore, is a natural wonderland with the equally wondrous advantages of a Nevada residency with no state income tax, no business tax, nor inheritance tax.

“Our Nevada address definitely has perks, but where we are located in Nevada is equally advantageous,” detailed Bell-Bhatti. “Our proximity to the casinos in Lake Tahoe and Reno provide a steady stream of top entertainment, the Sonoma wine country is within an easy drive, and Yosemite is a mere three hours from your doorstep.

“Even the climate is the envy of most. Our alpine setting provides views you would expect,” said Bell-Bhatti, “but our location on a mountain saddle provides a longer golf season that can stretch up to nine months in a good year. Although we receive snow, accumulations are much lower than nearby ski resorts allowing construction crews to work outside almost all year.

“Although we are located in the Silver State, Clear Creek Tahoe delivers a gold plated, family-centric lifestyle for generations to come,” praised Bell-Bhatti.
