Wolf Point Sale

The Cape Wickham thread reminded me to check on Wolf Point. It was sold last year, but I could not find any info about the new owner or their plans.

 8)  WP is definitely within the Dormie ownership but not the network.  I inquired about it and membership privileges earlier this year as its only a 3 hour drive away and was told by Zach Peed (the owner) that they have some plans for Wolf, now called TX0 (the airport code) while its not formally a part of the network, it still has access via invitation as they develop it out. As well, they had made it fly in only.

Would love to play it again, hope someday they'll allow folks to drive in through the gate and meander up the driveway to that great little clubhouse and walk up the hill to tee it up randomly...

What does fly in only mean?  You can't access the course via roads?  I can see fly in only for a fishing lodge in Alaska, but how does that work for a site in Texas close to towns?

In this case the runway is on site.

Steve, where do you live? I once drove it in an hour.


Wayne, when Al owned it the neighboring towns didn't have access unless they were lucky.
If you want to play, arrive via plane or helicopter.


I assume now motivated Sam will have his own plane any day now!

 8)  Mike, its like 150 miles from The Woodlands so it should be like 2.5 hours, when no traffic, but you know how to get there, don't have to make senior moment pit stops, and we got lost having missed the entrance gate once... but we did make it!  Now, don't tell me you drive at 90 mph all the way there from Memorial...


I wish I could have scraped the $ together to acquire WP...  now just focused on developing my 10 acre Executive PnP at Blue Lake in MI...

Locals said he'd kept circling low over the finishing holes, looking for a Biarritz, and may have run out of fuel. "The thing is, Sam was always enamoured of those European-type words -- and of cats, too, for some reason"

So much truth in such a short statement.

It's not the easiest place to find. And you're in rural South Texas. If you pull into the wrong person's driveway wearing a fruity golf outfit asking for directions, you're liable to get shot. I'd take my chances stealing a plane.

I have made the trip once since the new ownership took over. Yes, it is fly in only. Dianna had built an awesome runway on the property when she owned it and the new owner Zach is taking advantage of that. Nuzzo is right, rent a plane or helicopter and you are welcome at TX0. About the nameÖ Dianna didnít sell them the name Wolf Point due to her current business interests under the same name so they took the name of the airport code.

I guess if enough riff-raff finds access to generic planes they can always mandate the type or ownership rules of the arrivals.

I feel like sometimes golf provides fortuitous bounces.


Like, for instance, having a member of the discussion group thatís 1) played TX0 a lot 2) holds an Airline Transport Pilot rating and 3) has flown over TX0 and has a knowledge of the airspace in that part of Texas.
