July Update: White Bluff Resort Revitalization

White Bluff is making great progress moving toward its ultimate restoration goal. Property owners met July 20 for an update from their Board. And the report was most encouraging. By the way, the long term goal of the POA is to make White Bluff Resort a Premier Resort Destination in North Texas.

Goal of Resort Revitalization

At one time, White Bluff was a destination property for golfing, Lake Whitney fun and resort living. The goal of restoring the amenities is to restore White Bluff Resort as a Premier Resort Destination in North Texas.

That means all of our amenities will again generate income for the POA. Golf courses will bring in more golfers, cart rental fees, tournaments — and the accompanying generation of rental fees from condos, log cabins and RV parks here, as well as more dining/beverage customers for Mulligan’s on the New Course. The amenities are to be self-supporting — all revenue goes directly into the POA coffers to help defer overall costs to property owners.

New Course.

The total restoration of the greens, fairways and bunkers is reaching completion. The last two months of closure has afforded the needed time for completion. The New Course will reopen for play between August 15 and Labor Day. Stay tuned for an exact date. It is anticipated that tee times could be made online. Arcis (the company that manages our amenities) typically views unused (unbooked) tee times as “inventory,” that can be purchased by outside golfers — all to the benefit of our POA income. (Here is a link to the “Arcis Advantage” in managing White Bluff Resort.)

Old Course.

Restoration of the Old Course will be complete in late September or early October — and it will reopen for play at that time. The planting of sprigs on the greens was delayed due to lake level, pump and pipes. All is moving along well at this time. The Old Course Pro Shop will need a bit of renovation and the Board is looking at that now.

Golf Rounds

Great news on property owner golf rounds! 36 rounds per year per lot (up to two lots) for 2019 and 2020 will continue as before — maximum of 72 rounds per year per.

Practice Ranges

The Practice Ranges on both courses continue to be open. However, until each course opens, there will be no range balls sold. Those using the Practice Ranges must use and collect their own balls.

Marina Update

Storm damage has been repaired and the marina is open. However, the Army Corps of Engineers has yet to issue the lease to White Bluff. When this rather slow process is complete, the POA will then spend the necessary dollars to do other improvements. The Board is ready to go on these improvements once the lease is finalized.

Dining is Back at White Bluff

We are so happy to have our grill reopen on the New Course. Mulligan’s (formerly Trophy Grill) has been completely refurbished and is welcoming guests to White Bluff Resort.

With a totally new kitchen, including pizza oven, the grill sports a brand new look as well — fashioned after the famous St. Andrew’s in Scotland. There is plenty of room with seating for 70 inside and more seating on the patio overlooking the New Course. The bar has been redesigned with more seating as well. And a covered kiosk with pass-through was added outside for golfers to order from the patio.

Although owned and operated by the White Bluff Property Owners, Mulligan’s is managed and staffed by Arcis (arcisgolf.com), a company well versed in managing golf and dining facilities. The new chef, Matthew Lessing, was brought down from Dallas, where he was Line Chef at the Cowboys Golf and Country Club, Ring of Honor Kitchen & Bar. Chef Matt has a Culinary Arts degree from the Culinary Institute at Platt College. He is a registered member of the ACF (American Culinary Federation). Membership requires hours of training and on-the-job experience and means he is held to a higher standard of food service and preparation. He is looking forward to moving to Whitney in the near future.

Chef Matt’s Club Sandwich

Mulligan’s is currently open Thursday through Sunday. Thursday-Friday-Saturday for meals, 11am – 7:30 pm. (Bar stays open later). Sundays, it is open for dining 11 am – 3 pm.
