White Bluff Golf Courses Near Completion

While play on the New Course has been ongoing during some of the renovation period, the New Course and the Old Course are now closed for the final steps in the process.

Per reports from the White Bluff POA and our Golf Courses Superintendent, Gregg Fjelland, we are getting closer to our golf courses reopening later this summer. We are completing the sprigging process of our greens. “From that point it’s usually 60-90 days before we would open them for play. With that being said, we are looking for a mid to late August opening as a best-case scenario. We will open them when they are strong and healthy enough to handle the traffic.”

Sprigging is a manual process.

What Has Been Done

*Our new irrigation central computer has been installed with an updated antenna system that has helped immensely.
*Sprinklers are being raised and leveled and new nozzles being installed to help the sprinklers to be as efficient as possible.
*Drainage projects are underway such as 17 on the New Course and are already working well.
*Stump grinding was completed for the first go around as we eliminated 161 old stumps from both properties and POA areas.
*40 greens have been reconstructed.
*90 Billy Bunkers have been constructed.
*161 dead and diseased trees have been removed. Oak wilt continues to be a problem.
*2 pump stations have been renovated and new control systems have been installed.
*14 forward tees have been constructed to date.
*$1 million in new golf maintenance equipment has been leased for 6 years *The courses should open with the new greens in late August.
*Projects including the sodding of debilitated turf areas will be completed while the courses are closed.

A very busy time for us begins now through the summer months as we work to get the best product for our homeowners as possible. We look forward to our courses again being some of the best in North Texas.

Hidden Gems in White Bluff

With over 3,500 acres bordering Lake Whitney, White Bluff Resort is far from crowded. It is, in fact, filled with woodlands, ponds, streams and a couple of small interior lakes. The Resort itself — and its casual living environment — is a hidden gem in North Texas. But the Resort has a few hidden gems within its woodlands.

The Resort had been a ranch at one time and it is home to two cemeteries. Take a look at some of the hidden gems of days gone by.
