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.
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.”
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

If they are not golfing, boating, fishing, hunting, horseback riding or bicycling, White Bluff residents are engaged in many activities here on the Resort, including Pickleball and Tai Chi.
A group got started in mid-2018 and meets about twice a week as a group, but individuals can play more often. One of the tennis courts has been outfitted for Pickleball and the participants gladly volunteered do the work to get it ready for play. Equipment is available to use at the White Bluff court or people can bring their own.
The sport is the fastest-growing in the U.S., with more than 2.8 million players and a 12% increase in the past year, according to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association. Here is a link to information about the sport of Pickleball.
To get started, call or email Jody Yarbro: 254-717-1557. email@example.com.
A new 2019 group in White Bluff is Tai Chi instruction. Meets every Sunday at 1 pm in the Lone Star Room. A professional Tai Chi instructor conducts the class — which averages 12 to 20 (depending on participant schedules). Each class is $10/person for an hour of instruction. Tai Chi is a gentle form of exercise that is appropriate for any age and most any physical condition. It promotes balance, mental concentration, muscle strengthening and general flexibility. Besides stretching and gentle movements, Tai Chi incorporates meditation and controlled breathing. Here is a link to the benefits of Tai Chi and details of how Tai Chi differs from other forms of exercise.

Over the last couple of months, some new birds took up residence in the ponds at the entrance to White Bluff Resort. A pair of Egyptian Geese are sighted daily and they are unique in their appearance and presence.
According to birding sources, these birds originated in Egypt and were brought to this country for private collections. Apparently some escaped captivity and are thriving in the Houston area. We are lucky enough to now have a pair here at White Bluff.
Here are two links to learn more about these birds.
Our POA has selected a highly qualified company to manage our two golf courses and amenities here at White Bluff. And thus far, Arcis Golf, has a highly successful record of managing large resort properties around the country. We are confident we will become a “Destination” golf resort in North Texas.
Link here to see the latest news from Arcis regarding our partnership with them.
Just an update that the White Bluff POA office has officially moved into the Administration Building within White Bluff. It is no longer in the building across from Security.
The new address is 20022 Misty Valley Road — turn from White Bluff Drive at the White Bluff Chapel. Phone is 254-694-9276. To find all information about the White Bluff Property Owners Association (POA), go to whitebluffpoa.com.
The acquisition of White Bluff Resort by the Property Owners Association in September 2018 resulted in POA ownership of land and amenities within the resort. Here is a list of those properties. To access the links, go to this page on the POA website.
This is another step forward for White Bluff Resort. The POA Board has engaged Arcis Golf to manage the White Bluff golf courses, pro shops, restaurants/bars, lodging, marina and other amenities.
Arcis Golf is an industry leader in managing resort amenities and has incredible experience in establishing quality resort offerings, profitability of amenities and market expansion. Because of the unique nature of White Bluff, our POA Board believes an equally unique approach was needed to provide effective and proven management services.
Arcis is the second largest operator of golf courses across the country. It manages a number of Texas courses including eight in the DFW metroplex. Its Cowboy Golf Club earned “Best Overall Golf Club” in the metroplex by Avid Golfer Magazine. Details on the Arcis laurels can be found here.
In another positive move, the POA Board hired Associa, a leading provider of the financial aspects of operating a resort like White Bluff. This company is also an industry leader, with 40 years’ experience in managing community associations and property management. It can provide the growing technology solutions the resort needs.
With the recent transition of ownership of White Bluff to the property owners (from the developer), these two companies will provide the needed management services to continue the growth of the resort. Both will also help the resort generate profitability so that its amenities will generate a positive cash flow.
The POA Board issued a letter to White Bluff Property Owners on January 16, apprising them of these changes. You can find detailed information about the White Bluff POA and Board contact information at https://www.whitebluffpoa.com
