Our resort has been developed in phases over the years. The 1st phase called “The Estates” contains all of the amenities which include the 18 hole golf course, 52 acre ski slopes, Country club with excellent dining, and the amenities which include swimming, tennis, fishing pond, play ground, and pavilion for entertaining. The 2nd and 3rd phases called “The Heights”, and “Bucktown” were developed in the late 70’s and 80’s. These phases were higher in elevation, somewhat larger lots, terrific views. Our 4th phase began late 80’s and early 90”s called “Overlook Village. This phase brought significant changes with paved roads, and larger homes. Our 5th and final phase began in mid 2000’s is “The Perserve”. It also has larger homes, & paved roads.
The William Lewis designed golf course is a challenging 18-hole course with some of the most breathtaking and dramatic mountain vistas in the country. Here you will find fairways that drop more than 100’ from tee to green and holes that wrap themselves around the sides of mountains. Our elevation offers special appeal during the summer months with relief from the heat of the level lands. We have several golf tournaments each year that benefit organizations such as our local Hospice Program. One of our greatest assets is the warm hearts of our residents!
