George Strait has figured out how to get the tee-times he wants: he's buying a golf course.

 Strait says he and his business partner have bought the Tapatio  Springs Golf Resort and Conference Center in Boerne, about 25 miles northwest of San Antonio.

 Strait isn't saying how much they paid. But, the corporation they bought it from had paid $4.5 million in a foreclosure auction last June. The resort has three nine-hole courses and more than 100 hotel rooms.

Strait is an avid golfer. He says he has played the resort's courses and always believed it "could be a real jewel."
