11-15-06 - The Lake Texoma Lodge has a new owner. The Oklahoma Land Commissioner's Office chose point vista developers to demolish the lodge and turn it into a showcase for southern Oklahoma.
Principal owners include Oklahoma oilmen Audrey McLendon of Chesapeake Energy and Mark Fisher of Chaparral Oil.
They've invested close to $350 million to build a convention center, housing, water park and an affordable hotel.
The developers plan to maintain the two existing golf courses as well.
There was talk that Toby Keith and Barry Switzer would jump on board after the contract was awarded. No word if that has happened yet.
