Boot Ranch Announces Major Amenity Expansion

FREDERICKSBURG, Texas, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Boot Ranch, the exclusive 2,051-acre private club community located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, has announced an expansion project that will add 10 new features for outdoor recreation and social activities. Most are planned to be ready for use by members and their guests in 2017.

The amenities will be located around Longhorn Lake at the north end Boot Ranch, and in Metzger Park, a new residential village near the Clubhouse. The two areas will be connected with a new 10-foot wide paved trail that spans the two miles between these areas. Longhorn Lake features will include a covered party deck with fireplace and canoe/kayak tie ups; jumping rocks accessed by raft; a series of tree houses; a rope swing and a mid-lake swim platform.

At Metzger Park, central green space will accommodate a 1.5-acre putting park for all ages and 3.5 acres of play fields. A nearby dog park is also planned. Work will begin on 2017 on the restoration of the 19th century stone Metzger House for use as a general store and mail center.

Boot Ranch, ranked among the top-10 golf communities in America by Golf Digest, currently features a Hal Sutton-designed 18-hole golf course and 34-acre practice park; a 55,000 square-foot Clubhouse Village; and the Ranch Club with four pools, a pavilion that seats 300 and lighted sport courts. At present, Boot Ranch has about 200 Club members, more than half of whom own property in the community.

“Today, Boot Ranch offers a top-tier golf experience and an amazing pool complex,” said developer Craig Martin of the Terra Verde Group. “Our vision for this expansion is to take full advantage of this extraordinary land with lots of outdoor activities you just can’t do in the city.” The acclaimed private club design firm Swaback & Partners of Scottsdale is doing the architecture and planning work.

Martin added that a freestanding fitness center, an expanded spa, a new sporting clays course and a lakeside clubhouse are also in the planning stages.
