Country icon GEORGE STRAIT is the proud new owner of a golf resort in Texas.
The star purchased the Tapatio Springs Golf Resort and Conference Center in Boerne, near San Antonio, with his business partner Tom Cucisk and sealed the deal last week (01Apr11).
Strait, an amateur golfer, is delighted with his new piece of real estate, which boasts three nine-hole courses and more than 100 hotel suites, and insists he always believed it "could be a real jewel".
Details about the property purchase have not been revealed, although its former owners at Textron Financial Corporation paid $4.5 million (£2.8 million) for the retreat last summer (Jun10).
