When George Strait co-hosted the Countdown last month, he & Lon discussed his role in revitalizing a local San Antonio golf club. On Friday November 11, George was on hand at the Grand Re-opening of The Resort at Tapatio Springs. During the ribbon cutting ceremony, Strait and partner Tom Cusick detailed the many changes that have taken place since renovations began in April 2011 and discussed the future of Tapatio Springs.
“We were thrilled to officially unveil the new look, feel and flavors of Tapatio,” Strait said. “Tom and I have worked hard to create the perfect Texas Hill Country resort, and we look forward to hosting golfers, families and friends, and the community as they experience all that Tapatio Springs has to offer.”
Over the past several months, the property has transformed into a true Texas masterpiece. The first major project focused on the 112-room hotel, as the tired facility was in desperate need of a renewed look. It is now the perfect Hill Country escape. The entire resort underwent a complete exterior renovation which included more than 1,000 tons of rock and columns. Additionally, the fully-revamped golf pro shop features items that appeal to both men and women — converting the space into a charming Hill Country boutique.
Strait and Cusick also concentrated on revamping the flavors of Tapatio Springs. The golf course now includes Five Points Grill — a comfort station in the center of the course where golfers can choose from a menu of freshly-made items and refreshments.
