Dear Lifestyle Reader, The golf course at Comanche Trace looks fantastic and warmer weather is just around the corner. We are mowing the entire property (native areas) and cleaning up, just as we do every winter. We are excited about another great year ahead of us. Real estate activity remains positive with sales up. Tours were up 18 percent in 2012 over 2011. We have seen more interest in lots, which would result in more building, and we are on track for a fourth straight year of strong custom home construction. A new event scheduled this year is the Texas Hill Country Wine & Brew Festival at Comanche Trace on Saturday, July 6th. You can access the dedicated website from or go to www. for details. We recommend that you purchase tickets early, online, to avoid the lines on the day of the festival. Ticket purchases will be refunded up to 30 days after the event, if the festival is cancelled due to weather. Like us on Facebook and receive frequent updates via Twitter! Several exciting bands are on the lineup including Grammy winner, Bonnie Bishop of Nashville, Johnny Cooper, and Kyle Bennett Band of Fort Worth. Numerous wineries such as Becker Vineyards, Messina Hof, Singing Water, and Bending Branch, among others, will serve wine tastings. Several craft breweries will be represented, and your wristband will afford you tastings of both wine and beer. Terrific attendance is anticipated! There are several sponsors of this event; I want to thank James Avery, Centennial Bank (formerly HCSB),

April 1, 2013 Mercedes Benz of Boerne, and Peterson Regional Medical Center for their generosity in helping us kick off this day of fun. Other great news is the recent remodel of the Vista Room. When this facility was originally built, the Vista room was an office for Bobby Shelton. The space is no longer as functional for the needs of an active club, so we have opened it up, expanded the seating area and installed new flooring. This provides a better space for the dance floor, as well. The decks around the Vista Room and Pinnacle Grill will be replaced with a wood-alternative decking. We have also updated the Pro Shop and the downstairs men’s meeting room, with plans to do the same to the ladies’ meeting room soon. With these updates, we can even better serve events such as weddings, birthday and anniversary parties, business meetings, and more. Comanche Trace is especially well-known for catering specialty events in a warm, comfortable environment. We have so much for which to be thankful. New memberships are increasing, real estate activity is strong, and the future is bright. All the best, Trevor L. Hyde
