Affordable Lake Whitney Lifestyle Blog

Lake Whitney is the most affordable lake in North Texas. Located just south of the DFW Metroplex, Lake Whitney offers 225 miles of untouched shoreline and beautiful properties at very reasonable prices -- compared to other Texas lakes.

POA-Owned Property in White Bluff

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.

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

White Bluff Resort: Outdoor Activities

You can be as busy as you want at White Bluff — especially if you love the outdoors. Golf, fishing, hunting, bicycling, horseback riding and boating are right out your back door in White Bluff and around Lake Whitney.

Golf.

  • Old Course with Lake View
  • New Course

  • Old Couse Clubhouse
  • New Course Clubhouse

Two PGA Pro designed courses offer you golf right out your door. The New Course is currently open — cart path only. Since acquiring White Bluff and its amenities from the developer in September 2018, our Property Owners Association (POA) is updating and rebuilding the greens. Temporary greens are being used at this time. The Old Course will also be undergoing a renovation to improve both the greens and the traps. Work is progressing as quickly as possible to get both courses in pristine shape.

Fishing.

  • Lake Whitney Catch.
  • White Bluff Marina
  • Juniper Cove Marina

Lake Whitney offers unending opportunities for fishing from shore, a personal boat or a guide’s charter. With its own Marina, White Bluff provides an easily accessible boat ramp and marina slips if desired. But there are several other marinas on the lake as well. Boat rentals and guides are available on the lake. Striper is the premier fishing catch on Lake Whitney, but other types of bass, crappie and catfish are waiting for your hook.

Boating.

  • Coves on Lake Whitney

White Bluff Marina gives boaters a close-to-home boat ramp — at no cost to property owners. Slips are available for lease. Lake Whitney is a quiet, uncrowded lake with 225 miles of shoreline. Fishing boats, pontoons, wave runners and water-ski boats are all welcome. But because of the lake’s size and the limited population on the lake, there is plenty of room for all. White Bluff also offers onsite storage facilities for boats and RVs.

Hunting

Deer, Turkey, Duck and Dove are popular hunting targets around Lake Whitney. Surrounded by Corps of Engineer land, the lake has plentiful hunting grounds. Private ranches around White Bluff may also provide hunting leases. Hunting seasons are available here. Bow and gun are both permitted during particular seasons.

Biking and Hiking

  • Tour de Norway around Lake Whitney

Both mountain biking and hiking are popular within White Bluff Resort and at the Lake Whitney State Park. The park has a number of trails and occasionally competitive biking opportunities. Each May, a Tour de Norway Bike Race begins in nearby Clifton. Within White Bluff, there are nearly 60 miles of roads on which to ride.

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.

White Bluff Residents Granted Significant Reduction in Water Costs

Facing a 42% rate hike filed by Double Diamond Water Utilities back in 2016, White Bluff residents took their displeasure to the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) in Austin. Less than two years later, residents are delighted with the outcome.
