Busy times at Wycliffe! Since my last writing for the Wycliffe Magazine, exciting times are on the horizon! The current busy season throughout South Florida and Wycliffe has drawn to a close. Our “snowbird” members are returning north for the summer and life goes on at Wycliffe for the approximately 60% of us who are here year-round. As a result of the recent Board election, we are happy to welcome five new members: Diane Gower, Leslie Gross, Alan Layne, John Mirenda and Art Spector. I look forward to working with them and the rest of the Board to continue our efforts in moving the Club forward. As you all know, we are working to merge our Club with the WCA into “One Wycliffe.” We are still in the information gathering stage. A committee comprised of members of both boards and non-board members is working diligently to assess the pros and cons of such an endeavor. Issues such as the structure of the new board and the transition are just two of them. A new set of documents and by-laws will be drawn. We are working with the law firm of Sachs, Sax and Caplan and our accounting firm, RSM. The operational effciencies and tax savings of a unified Homeowners Association are of paramount importance. Once all of the information is gathered, it will be sent to the membership. Four votes will be necessary to pass the merger. Both Boards will have to approve it, followed by separate membership votes of the Club and WCA. We are targeting these votes in the late Fall to have the effective date of the new, merged, Homeowners Association to be January 1, 2019 in order to realize the savings as soon as possible. While the research into “One Wycliffe” is ongoing, the renovation project, “Plan B,” is upon us. The Phase I permit has been received and construction began in late May. The professionals and our Construction Committee are working constantly to bring this to fruition. Among the multiple moving parts to this project, minimizing disruption to the membership is very important. Part of Phase I will include the Grande Dining Room and the Fitness Center and Spa. We hope to have Phase I completed in time for the upcoming season. Phase II, scheduled to start next Spring, will include the new restaurant and lobby lounge among other improvements. These are very busy times while we continue to enjoy our wonderful lifestyle here at Wycliffe. Enjoy your summer!

PHASE I

of the Renovation project has begun! This is an exciting

time for Wycliffe. As you know we are converting the Locker Rooms to make space for the temporary Spa. The Grande Lounge will be converted into to two rooms, with a temporary wall to separate the men’s card play and the Fitness Studios. Once that is completed, the Men’s Card Room space will be converted to the temporary Fitness Center. We will then start the remodel of the Fitness Center and Spa. And of course, the most important area to get a makeover is the Grande Dining Room! The Grille Room will remain open during this time for members for lunch and dinner over the summer months. We will have a lot of construction going on, so I ask that everyone be careful as you move around the Clubhouse. As many of our members leave for the summer, I would like to acknowledge our staff for making this a great season. We started off the season with a visit from Hurricane Irma, who was forecasted to leave a path of devastating destruction. While we felt lucky to come out with just minor damage, I applaud our staff for not only preparing the Clubhouse for Irma but also getting back up and running in a timely manner. The Club was then able to move on with another amazing season of holidays and events shared with friends and family. I wish everyone a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing you again in the fall.

GT: With my father being the President of the local NAACP Chapter, we walked with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. over the Pettus Bridge in the second march. In the ’60s, racism was at one of the highest in history – mostly because some people didn’t want to change. My sister was the first person of color to attend Jacksonville State in Alabama and I was the first person of color to attend my high school in 1967. At around the age of 14 or 15, I first watched Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf and and that was the day I fell in love with the game of golf. So, after serving my country for 7 years, working as a chef for 27 years, I began to work on my bucket list – with becoming a Golf Pro at the top of my list – and I did it!

chef ’s corner CHEF COLLIN BENDER’S SUMMERTIME RECIPE GROWING UP IN A FAMILY OF FOODIES AND HOME CHEFS, scallops have always been a family recipe staple. The light, buttery flavor and texture of a perfectly seared scallop has always been one to both impress and please friends and family, and it has always been a simple yet remarkable dish to serve. When I created this recipe, I was looking for something that would pair and enhance the delicate flavor profile of the scallop without overpowering the subtleness of the dish. This is where I came to the cauliflower. Cauliflower had always been an enjoyable neutral flavored vegetable that had a nice butteriness to it. With a peak season in the end of summer/beginning of fall, and over 100 different varieties, I had found the scallop a perfect match. This dish is one of elegance but simplicity, that showcases amazing seafood and will guarantee to both satisfy your culinary pallet and wow your guests.

Seared Diver Scallop with a Summer Cauliflower Puree, Roasted Cauliflower & Balsamic SERVES 4

INGREDIENTS 1 2 lb. head of cauliflower, cored and separated into 2-inch florets 1 cup heavy cream 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter 8

S U M M E R 2 0 18

• W YC LI F F E M AGA ZI N E

Juice of 1 Lemon 1 to 1 1/4 lbs. dry sea scallops, approx. 16 pieces 2 tsp. olive oil Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper 1 Head of Romesco Cauliflower (any color) Balsamic syrup


f ood DIRECTIONS

Cauliflower Puree 1.Preheat the oven to 325°. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the cauliflower florets until tender (about 7 min.). Drain well. Spread the cauliflower on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake for about 5 minutes to dry it out. 2.In a small saucepan, combine the heavy cream with the butter and bring to a simmer over moderate heat just until the butter is melted. 3.Working in batches, puree the cauliflower in a blender with the warm cream mixture; transfer the puree to a medium microwave-safe bowl. Season with salt and lemon juice. Just before serving, reheat the puree in the microwave in 1-minute intervals, stirring occasionally. TIP: The cauliflower puree can be prepared ahead of time, refrigerated overnight and reheated in a microwave, stirring occasionally.

Roasted Cauliflower 1.Preheat the oven to 425°. 2.Cut the colored Romesco Cauliflower (Regular white cauliflower works fine as well) into larger florets, then quarter the florets and place in a large bowl. 3.Toss the colored florets lightly in olive oil, salt and pepper and place on a baking tray and cook until golden brown (about 10-15 min.) and set aside.

Scallops 1.Remove the small side muscle from the scallops, rinse with cold water and thoroughly pat dry. 2.Add the butter and oil to a 12 to 14-inch sauté pan on high heat. 3.Salt and pepper the scallops. Once the fat begins to smoke, gently add the scallops to the butter and oil saute pan, making sure they are not touching each other. 4.Sear the scallops for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. The scallops should have a 1/4-inch golden crust on each side while still being translucent in the center.

T O P L AT E Take a large spoonful of cauliflower puree and spread across plate. Place the scallops on the puree, and decorate with the roasted cauliflower pieces. Drizzle the plate with olive oil and balsamic syrup, and enjoy!

How to Beat the Heat on the courts

SUMMER IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER

By Kam Kuchta

and I feel that it is very important that we address the issue of playing in intense South Florida summer heat. Your hands perspire, making it difficult to hold the racquet. You begin to feel tired, even though it’s only the third game of the match. It’s like your entire energy reserve has just been sucked right out of you! So, if you’re going to play in a match, you need to be well equipped and have a game plan. The most important thing is to remain hydrated and this requires taking care of yourself on and off the courts. Don’t just take one cup of water and think you’re covered. You need to drink more than 1-hour before you play - 6 cups should do the job. Once the match begins, drink a smaller amount on every changeover, even if you don’t think you need it. Water and sports drinks are your best bet. Cooler drinks are absorbed into the body much quicker so I recommend that you bring ice from the beverage station. Coffee and soda are not the drinks to be had; stay away from those before and during play. Also, please take advantage of our ice-towels and place them around your neck on the changeovers. This will help cool you down. My last recommendation is to encourage you to get out early between 8-8:30 a.m. to start your game and limit your play to 1-hour on those hot summer days.

3 GREAT TIPS FOR PLAYING DOUBLES

K AM’S

KORNER 1.Talk to your partner on a regular basis to eliminate confusion. All successful doubles pairs talk to each other after every point. 2.Use what works. Players often have great intentions but fail on the court as they try to execute shots and patterns of the pro game. A great doubles team understands what works for them. Plan your game around your individual skills and strengths. 3.Good movement. Players miss shots because they don’t move until the ball has already passed over the net. Keep moving on your feet, never stand and watch. It’s crucial in doubles to be on your toes and be ready to attack or defend.

How are you Feeling? Hot

Hot

Hot!

Summer days are finally here, but exercising in the hot and humid weather can feel overwhelming. Running, biking, hiking, even walking feels harder in the heat, so here are some tips to help you get through your summer workouts.

By Donna Forte

It’s the perfect time to take advantage of our Fitness Center – it is air conditioned so you can exercise comfortably at all times of the day. Looking for some motivation? Schedule a complimentary training session with any of our Certified Personal Trainers so you can get moving in the right direction! Hydration is important whether you are exercising indoors or outdoors. It prevents some of the symptoms you may experience from overheating such as dizziness, stomach cramps and headaches. Your body requires water to function properly so HYDRATE – HYDRATE – HYDRATE! The more flexible you are with your workout, the better it will be. Use weather updates to find out when temperatures are going to be the lowest or even cloudy. Working out in the morning not only starts your day off in the right direction but can also open your eyes to a different view of your environment.

•••

Fit, Fit, Hooray! FITNESS HOURS Monday - Friday 6:30 am - 7:30 pm Saturday & Sunday 7 am - 5 pm

Lightweight, breathable, moisture-wicking clothes are a must for exercising in the summer heat. The fabric pulls moisture away from your skin, resulting in a cooler effect. Wearing a hat to keep the hot sun off your head and face also helps. It may seem a little odd to shower before a workout, but the cold water will cool you down. Leave your hair wet so when you head outside, the water dripping down your face and neck will feel refreshing. If you have short hair, carry a water bottle with you and squeeze a little on top of your head whenever you need a little cooling boost. The summer isn't the best time to push yourself, so if you can only handle 10 minutes at a time, do what you can, or exercise twice in one day. Also, slow down your pace with less intensity or intervals. Remember taking time to breathe and pace yourself will not hurt your health. Exercise, no matter how many minutes we commit to each day, makes us feel better. Keep that in mind during the summer months - a little can go a long way! W YC LI F F E M AGA ZI N E

golf

TIP •••

HIT UP ON YOUR For More YOU MAY HAVE HEARD THE TERM “HIT UP ON YOUR DRIVER,” BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN? Most shots in golf are played from the ground without a tee and require a descending hitting action to get the ball in the air. The driver, on the other hand, does not. It requires more of a sweeping or ascending swinging motion. This ascending action promotes optimum launch conditions creating less backspin and more carry distance, which results in greater overall distance. Here are a few set-up keys to help you hit up on the ball and launch it higher and further than you ever have:

SET-UP ❶ Ball position forward in your stance. ❷ Spine tilt - Right shoulder lower than left for right-handed golfer.

Summer is here and the future is so bright – I got to wear shades!

W

By Donna Forte

We all know the importance of sun protection and especially in South Florida, it’s a year-round necessity. However, when was the last time you thought about

protecting your skin from HEV (High Energy Visible) light? I’d like to think I have a pretty good skin care regimen but truthfully, I have not thought about protection against HEV. What is HEV you may be wondering? HEV, also known as Blue Light, is the strong light that emits from the screens of cellular phones, computers, tablets, TVs and fluorescent/LED lighting. Surprisingly, the sun also emits blue light so we are exposed indoors and outdoors – it’s everywhere. According to Coola Suncare, research indicates that Blue Light can reach deeper into our skin than UVA and UVB rays, passing through both the epidermal and dermal layers to reach the subcutaneous tissues. Considering we spend up to 12 hours a day in front of digital screens, we’re often getting a lot more exposure to Blue Light than we are to UV. Blue Light is part of what’s referred to as digital pollution—and just like environmental pollution, it’s taking a toll on the health of our skin.

•••

Luxuriate!

S PA S U M M E R HOURS Monday 9 am - 5 pm Tuesday - Saturday 9 am - 6 pm Closed on Sundays

How do we prevent digital pollution from harming us? Coola has formulated a breakthrough serum to provide full spectrum protection from the sun, environmental toxins and digital overexposure. With all star ingredients such as exotic Indian Jasmine, Mangosteen, Polygonum Aviculare and Liposhield, skin is protected from HEV, premature aging and skin damage.

House Beautiful

Summer2018 Homeowners Lea Chehade and Josh Taylor 10818 Fairmont Village Drive

“We totally fell in love with Wycliffe, but couldn’t find a house that fit our style. We made the decision to find a house with great bones—a pool, three car garage, new roof and golf course views—that needed to be renovated. We gutted the house completely with the help of Siegrist Restorations. The flooring and walls were removed, popcorn ceilings skimmed, bathrooms re-configured and even converted a half bath into a full bath turning our house into a 3-bed, 3-bath all suited house.

AFTER

We said goodbye to 1994 and hello to modern rocker glam. I picked out every single detail to match our style and what we wanted our dream house to be. “

EACH YEAR, Wycliffe Charities Foundation embarks on a journey to raise funds for many organizations with deep roots in Wellington and Palm Beach County. Chartered in 1995, the Foundation’s mission is to provide financial support to local non-profit organizations engaged in educational, health and youth related programs as well as support for our local EMS and Fire Rescue. What makes Wycliffe Charities unique is the diversity, dedication and experience of its volunteers who bring a lifetime of charitable involvement to the Wycliffe community.

From Tribute Cards to the Annual Shred Event, Wycliffe members are able to provide continuous support throughout the year. Stay tuned for the lineup of the 2018/2019 fundraising events and don’t forget to join the Foundation for the Annual Shred Event that has been rescheduled from earlier this year to November 10th. If you would like to be a part of the Wycliffe Charities Foundation, please contact Gerry Ranzal at 629-5997 or Gail Horowitz at 968-2926. To learn more about the Wycliffe Charities Foundation, visit www.wycliffecharities.com.

Since its inception, Wycliffe Charities has raised almost 2 million dollars and this year, the foundation distributed $123,000 to 21 charities within Palm Beach County. The fundraising events for the 2017/2018 season have been tremendously successful. The Bike/ Walkathon brought in amazing weather and a good time was had by all. The Great Charity Challenge took place earlier this year and although Wycliffe Charities didn’t make the drawing, they were awarded $6,000. The Annual Golf Tournament was a pronounced victory with 270 golfers that caused them to be happily “sold out.” W YC LI F F E M AGA ZI N E
