Resort co-owner, country music legend George Strait, acknowledges Harmony’s role in this renovation project
Sarasota, FL — Harmony Outdoor Brands, the nation’s top retail sod provider, was chosen to provide fairway sod for the renovated Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort & Spa in Boerne, Texas. The resort was carefully restored by country music superstar George Strait and Texas businessman Tom Cusick. Harmony Turf, which is specially cultivated for its hardiness, was also used to re-sod the golf course roughs.
The golf course turf restoration is just one element of the extensive renovation, which began when Strait and Cusick purchased the 250-acre property in 2011. The resort features a 112-room hotel, pro shop, locker rooms, bar and dining room. The partners, both avid golfers, had been coming to the resort for many years. They are proud to restore it to its former glory.
Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort & Spa is also home to the annual Vaqueros del Mar Invitational Golf Tournament and Auction, to support wounded U.S. service men and women. Created by Strait and Cusick, the week-long event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for designated nonprofit organizations.
“Tapatio Springs is a project close to our hearts. This golf course is like an old friend. We wanted a quality sod provider, and Harmony Outdoor Brands more than surpassed our expectations,” said Strait. “We look forward to calling on them in the future to help us restore and maintain this beautiful facility.”
“The Lone Star state is one of our top markets,” commented Harmony Brands lawn and garden expert Mike Pope. “Having spent time in Texas, it’s easy to understand why quality turf is so important there. Texans clearly value outdoor living and recreation.”
Harmony Outdoor Brands has grown from a regional turf supplier to become the largest supplier of retail sod nationwide, distributed through all major home improvement retailers. The company’s network of top-tier growers has more than 10,000 acres of turf grass under production in 48 states.
