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.
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.)
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.
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.
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.
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.

Overview of Lake Whitney
“Lake Whitney is just west of Hillsboro on I-35 and is a very scenic lake with limestone cliffs, rolling hills, and clear blue water. Lake Whitney was authorized by Congress for the primary purpose of flood control, water conservation, and hydroelectric power generation. Construction was completed by the Corp of Engineers in 1951 at a cost of $41 million. A total of 17,656 square miles of the Brazos River’s watershed feeds into Whitney. Lake Whitney offers some of the best outdoor recreation in Texas with excellent lake front 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. “

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.
