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.

The Latest on White Bluff Resort

A few new items to report on the progress being made to restore the amenities at White Bluff.

The Bluff Point Condos.

We recently received an update from the Board of Directors that these rental condos are now completely renovated (inside and out) and available for rental. $150/night for property owners and $200/night for non-property owners. Reservations can be made through the POA office – 254-694-WPBO. Here is a link to the letter we received and a list of improvements made to the units. They are beautiful, on the Old Course across from the Club House.

Log Cabins

White Bluff also offers three Log Cabins for rental. These have also been refurbished and rent for $125/night for property owners and $150/night for those who do not own property here. Link here for details about the Bluff Point Condos and the Log Cabin accommodations.

Amenities Owned by White Bluff POA

Besides the golf courses, pools, RV parks and tennis courts , the Property Owners Association owns dozens of amenities throughout the Resort. Many are open and available for use; others require renovation before they can be available. (Remember, the POA only acquired the Resort from the developer last fall. Much was in disrepair and is being taken care of at this time.)
You can link to a page on the POA website that provides specifics as to what we own and whether it is open at this time.

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

White Bluff Management Update

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
