New Resort Coming to Texoma Shores

11-2-06 - Lake Texoma is getting a new multi-million dollar piece of real estate on its shores. The Rock Creek Resort will be a 100-million dollar resort and gated community off Highway 901 near Gordonville.

It will be situated on 1300 acres of land, property which took over a year to take ownership of. The plan includes a state of the art marina with 755 slips and a 18 hole Nicklaus designed championship golf course, a hotel, restaurant and several condominiums.

Increased traffic through the county is important, but officials appreciate the new jobs the resort will create during construction and operation. Tax relief was also a big selling point in bringing the vacation spot.

Officials with Double Diamond say land sales on the property will go on sale in the spring. Lots will start in the mid 40s and go up from there. The project should take about five to six years to be fully completed.
