    An avid golfer, King George will now rule the links ... at least at one course in Texas.

    Country superstar George Strait is taking a swing at another passion besides music.

    Strait and partner Tom Cucisk have purchased the Tapatio Springs Golf Resort and Conference Center in Boerne, about 25 miles northwest of San Antonio.

    Strait and Cusick, who lives in the Texas Hill Country community, finalized the deal April 1. Terms were not released Friday when the purchase announced.

    The seller was Textron Financial Corp., which last June bought the resort for $4.5 million during a foreclosure auction.

    Strait, who's an avid golfer, says he's lived near Boerne and played the resort's courses, always believing the complex "could be a real jewel."

    The resort, founded in 1981, has three nine-hole courses and more than 100 hotel rooms.
