Former Double M Ranch Owner Loves Gunter Texas Property

In 1983, Dallas socialite Myron K. Martin purchased 212 acres of the Double M Ranch including a house from Dallas oilman Bob Franklin. Franklin had used the property as a weekend polo getaway for him and his friends including Prince Albert of Monaco, who scored his first goal at the ranch. At that time, the property was known as Clearfork Ranch.

“I was looking for a place where I could go on the weekends,” she said. “I had a friend in real estate and I told her I just want something north, but that’s close enough to Dallas where I could go up there for the day and come home. My friend found Bob Franklin’s property and it already had a house, two barns, a pool and tennis court. It basically had everything I wanted and I fell in love with it immediately.”

Before becoming the master-planned community it is today, The Bridges was the polo playground for Texas oilman Bob Franklin. Franklin, owner of Costa Resources in West Texas, purchased the Gunter property in the ’70s and titled it Clearfork Ranch.

Bob joined Willow Bend Polo Club in Dallas, which was founded by Brinker International’s Norman Brinker, and wanted a place to practice his new interest in polo. Clearfork Ranch quickly became his weekend polo getaway where he could entertain friends including Prince Albert, son of Grace Kelly and now ruler of Monaco. Prince Albert is rumored to have scored his first goal on the property.
