The Tapatio Springs Resort in Boerne suffered extensive fire damage last weekend at the resort’s clubhouse. According to KENS5 News in San Antonio, witnesses started reporting seeing flames around 7:30 Saturday evening. One club employee says the fire allegedly started in the wall of the kitchen.

Flames then began to engulf the golf clubhouse, restaurant, and bar. One building is reported to have collapsed. Representatives for the resort released a statement Saturday evening, stating that the clubhouse building is a “total loss.”

In a statement on Facebook, the resort posted an update on November 5. “Given the Clubhouse serves so many different purposes essential to our member and guest experiences, Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort and The Club is closed for the foreseeable future.” The resort asks incoming guests to please call their off-property Reservations Team at (855) 627-2243 ext. 1, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Central Standard Time.

The owners of Tapatio Springs, which includes country music legend George Strait, reinvented the iconic resort in 2015 to be a family-friendly, affordable destination that delivers experiences well beyond expectations. To make good on that promise, they put into place a new, highly experienced leadership team with decades of experience in hospitality management. The resort features 220 acres of hill country views with a world-renowned golf course on the property.

George Strait’s Influence Within Texas and Beyond

Strait, who Forbes Magazine named as one of the highest-paid country music stars, has investments in many different areas. The Grammy Award winner has publicly backed Código, an ultra-premium priced tequila that was consumed privately by a small group of Mexican families (and family friends like Strait) before becoming commercially available last year in several markets including Texas, California, and New York.

In addition to his investments, Strait has also committed to helping the Gulf Coast recover after Hurricane Harvey slammed the area this summer. The country singer accompanied Governor Abbott to Rockport in the days immediately after the hurricane. He asked the governor what he could do to help “shine a spotlight” on the South Texas region’s recovery efforts. Strait — known in music circles as the “King of Country” — and fellow musicians helped raise more than $50 million to benefit Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma recovery in Texas, Florida and other areas during the Sept. 12 Hand in Hands telethon.
