White Bluff Resort Spring Update

It is spring here at White Bluff Resort on Lake Whitney. The bluebonnets are starting to bloom — renewing our landscape and our hearts with their beauty. White Bluff is also well into its renewal as a superior golf and lake resort — a commitment by our property owners and our POA.

Lodging.

One of three log cabins available for rental.

Our three log cabins, on the New Course at the Rustic Pool, are again available for rental. They have been updated and are already being reserved for visitors.

Our fully reburbished condos available for guest lodging.

Our condos, across from the Old Course Pro Shop, will be ready soon — furniture, new mattresses/box springs are being moved in.

Dining.

The New Course Clubhouse houses both a Pro Shop and the new Mulligan’s.

The former Trophy Grill on the New Course has been renamed to Mulligan’s and will be opening soon. Total renovation — from the kitchen to the bar to the dining area and the outside seating area — has been completed. A kiosk (snack bar) has been created for golfers as a convenience outside the dining area. New tables, chairs and dining booths have been installed, along with a red and green tartan plaid sofa and arm chairs in front of the fireplace. (The dining room will now seat 70.) Three flat-screen TVs will be installed. The bar has been extended and a new inlaid hickorywood bar top put in place. A pizza oven has been installed and I hear we can enjoy pizza made from a propriety recipe shared only with us. Can’t wait! Arcis Golf, the management company selected by our POA, is in the process of interviewing candidates for management of Mulligan’s. In addition, the restrooms have been total renovated and updated.

Marina.

White Bluff’s Marina has continued to be open. Slip leases are being renewed and additional covered slips are still available.

Lighthouse Restaurant and Bar

The Lighthouse Deck (before its expansion and bandstand addition.)

The very popular Lighthouse deck has been repaired and stabilized. All railings have been replaced. Work has begun on building the new bandstand — folks here look forward to Friday night music there. Arcis Golf is addressing a plan for re-opening the Lighthouse facilities.



Two Golf Courses

We continue to receive detailed updates from our POA regarding the progress on renovating and improving our two golf courses. The New Course is substantially done and work has been progressing well on the Old Course. We have been able to play the New Course during its renovation. Both courses will be closed for the summer to allow for the finalization of the work — tee leveling, fairway aerification, sodding, fertilizing, chemical applications, irrigation repairs, drainage projects on numerous holes and growing in 39 greens.


Our Golf Course Superintendent, Gregg Fjelland, shared this comment: “I hope everyone understands that we want to give all property owners the best possible scenario when we open both courses in late summer. There will be many moving parts this summer and by closing for a short period, we can get our large to-do list completed.”

He also offers a special thanks to the many property owner/volunteers who initially helped get the courses cleaned up after the long shut-down by the developer. Just a reminder, we — the property owners — now own our resort and have elected a superior POA Board of Directors to lead us and the work that is being done here at White Bluff.

Lake Whitney — The Most Gorgeous Texas Lake

Of course, we, who live at Lake Whitney, have known this all along. But it is still a well-kept secret up in the DFW metroplex and down in Houston. Property and homes at Lake Whitney are much more affordable than other lakes around Texas.

  • Lake Whitney tx

It is the rural environment of this lake that makes it most appealing for weekend homes — and for those who can move away from the city and enjoy a quieter, peaceful way of life. Lake Whitney is uncrowded — not overrun with homes, boats and traffic.

Best Outdoor Recreation in Texas

According to TexasOutside.com, Lake Whitney is the 4th largest lake in Texes — 23,500 acres with 225 miles of shoreline. “Lake Whitney offers some of the best outdoor recreation in Texas with excellent lakefront camping and lodging, good fishing, nearby hunting and perfect conditions for boating. The clear water, scenic bluffs, protected coves and unusually smooth water (primarily due to light boat traffic) are perfect for boaters.”

A Houston blogger, MommyPoppins.com, recommends Lake Whitney for family fun. (NOTE: We have plenty of Houston folks who have moved to Lake Whitney and others who have getaway homes here for weekend relaxation.)

Cleanest Lakes in Texas.

USA Today
lists Lake Whitney among the cleanest lakes in Texas. “Lake Whitney is one of the lesser-known lakes in Texas, which is hard to believe considering how beautiful it is….this is the perfect sport for swimming, camping, fishing and other lake activities.” March 15, 2018

Google lists Lake Whitney as one of the most scenic swimming lakes in Texas.

Come out to Lake Whitney this spring. Enjoy its particularly beautiful sunsets and see how affordable living here can be. Call Emily Morris, Realtor, for a tour. 254-694-1111. LakeHomesLakeWhitney.com
