from the president

G

A New Season Greetings. The “season” at our Club is in full swing. All of the “snowbirds” have returned

and we are all very busy. The holiday weeks saw our population grow by leaps and bounds with children and grandchildren visiting. The pool, restaurants, tennis courts and golf courses were all occupied with reunited families. As 2017 came to an end, there were some very important developments here at Wycliffe. First, and foremost, we have a major renovation that will begin in just a few months. The membership passed “Plan B” with a majority of over 80%. The groundwork for the project is well underway with the engagements of a design firm, Image Design, from Atlanta and a Construction Management Firm, Mouw Associates. Actual construction is anticipated to begin late this Spring and last through two phases, with completion in the Fall of 2019. This renovation will redo almost all of the interiors of the Club as well as adding a new restaurant and lobby lounge. The Fitness Center and Spa will be reconfigured to give us a modern facility. All of these projects will be accomplished with the minimum amount of disruption possible to our everyday lives. More recently, the 2018 Capital Budget was passed. Many items will be replaced because they have reached the end of their useful lives. The driving range will receive new drainage and irrigation systems. A new golf practice facility will be built. This will expand our ability to practice multiple types of shots and hold more events and competitions. This will allow members who may no longer play 18-holes to participate. All the while this will become a very attractive amenity to show prospective members and promote the idea that Wycliffe is, in fact, a Golf and Country Club. Yes, 2017 was very productive and I look forward to the start and ultimate completion of all future projects.

from the general manager

SEASON IS UPON US and I must say that the energy around the clubhouse is buzzing. The Showcase Series kicked off with the amazing Motown Magic and concludes at the end of March with the multi-talented James Stephen III. Our Comedy Night series started with Mike Marino and I am pleased to see the strong participation levels for these activities. This truly indicates the depth of our social programming here at Wycliffe. Worth mentioning, are the Wycliffe members that still take the time to give back to the community by hosting several charitable events here in February and March. Many work tirelessly organizing these fundraisers to raise money for worthy causes. This really shows the caring spirit of our Wycliffe membership. And finally, the balmy spring weather in South Florida will set the stage for the annual outdoor celebration event, Under the Big Top. The staff is eagerly preparing to outdo last year’s event, so please make sure you have your table put together for this fun and casual affair. With so many exciting happenings during this time, I challenge you to find the time to attend them all! Please enjoy all that Wycliffe has to offer in the upcoming months and I look forward to seeing you around the Club!

Sincerely,

Rob Martin General Manager/COO

food RECIPES FROM CHEF CHRISTOPHER PARK

Irish Stew 1 lb. leg of lamb, large cubed

Meaningful Family Recipes

1 bunch leeks, diced and wash

Heat oil in wide pot and sear lamb until brown. Remove and sauté onions, celery and leeks until almost tender, then add garlic and thyme. Add the meat back to the vegetables and then add half of the diced potatoes and chicken. Bring to a simmer and cook until the potatoes break down. Add the rest of the potatoes and cook until tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

2 celery sticks, diced

This dish goes great with a nice loaf of bread.

1 white onion, diced

5 white potatoes, diced 2 garlic cloves, chopped 2 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme 2 qt. chicken stock 2 Tbs. oil Salt and pepper

When I was 18 years old, one of the first chefs I that I worked with was an Irish chef. I made an Irish stew one day and told him it was the best. He just looked at it and threw it in the trash. He told me if I made that in his hometown they would stone me. Then he taught me how to make stew like his mom made, which is wonderful. Thank you, Chef Murphy! — Chef Christopher Park W YC LI F F E M AGA ZI N E

BE A GOOD POACHER AT THE NET A good poacher disturbs and puts great pressure on the return of the serve. If you are not poaching or missing volleys check your distance from the net. Most club players tend to stand too far from the net. They feel they must cover the lob. The server will cover the lob. Your job is to terrorize the return and get them thinking about you at the net.

HAVE YOU EVER FOUND YOURSELF having a great round, then you make one bad swing, you score a big number on that hole, and your round continues to get worse from there? How can your swing feel so good for 12 holes and then feel so bad for the last 6 holes? It’s the mental game. Mental toughness is the ability to handle adversity, and there is no game that tests your mental toughness like GOLF. After a bad shot or hole, the natural reaction of the mind is to think negatively; which then results in tension throughout the body. Here are some thoughts to help change your mindset after a bad shot: ❶ Do a quick analysis of your poor shot. Was it caused by a bad swing or poor course management? If it was poor course management, take note and try to not to make the same mistake in the future. If it was a bad swing, correct it in your next practice swing. ❷ LET IT GO. Shift your focus to your next shot and what’s in your control. Be aware of tension throughout the body. Let any anger be released prior to your next shot. ❸ Upon arriving to your next shot, go through your pre-shot routine and put a positive mental image in your mind. See the shot you’re trying to hit. ❹ Ideally, you should clear your mind of swing thoughts when you swing. Use any technical swing thoughts in your practice swing (ie: don’t lift my body in the backswing). If you have trouble picturing your target, use swing thoughts that focus on tempo, balance, or finish. Allow yourself to freely swing through the ball. Remember, every golfer makes a bad swing throughout the round; having mental toughness allows you to recover and keep your mind on the current shot.

Ready,

Sweat,

Go!

By Donna Forte

Finding the time and proper fitness regimen to produce the results you want can be challenging – especially as a new year rolls in. The Fitness Center has put together a list of the top ten trends that we believe will help you excel in your New Year’s resolution! 10. Functional Fitness is an aspect that many people are concerned with achieving. You want to look great in your favorite clothing but also be able to walk from the putting green to your golf cart without being out of breath. 9. Fitness Programming that is appropriate for your age is being placed on the table. If your balance is of concern, a fitness program with high interval training may not be the best route for you to follow, however, our complimentary balance workshop might be a better option. Always consult honestly with a personal trainer so that they can tailor a program to your needs. 8. Personal Training as a career has been on the rise. What does that mean? Every personal trainer must have the proper credentials, so be sure to inquire about their specialties or backgrounds in the health industry. 7. Yoga has grown in popularity and utilizes a series of specific bodily postures for health and relaxation. With various techniques to choose from – Power Yoga, Yogalates, SloFlow Yoga, Aerial, Bikram and Hatha Yoga – there is a yoga program for everyone. 6. Fitness Specialty Programs are more FITNESS HOURS prevalent in the health industry now than Monday and Wednesday ever before. Our personal trainers at Wycliffe 6:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. are focusing on a wide range of programs to Tuesday and Thursday offer our members – including Pilates, TRX 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. and TPI; making it easier for you to find Friday your niche. 6:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.

•••

Fit, Fit, Hooray!

5. Strength Training remains important for all ages, activity levels and genders. To achieve optimal results, aerobic and flexibility programs are recommended. 4. Body Weight Training is resurfacing as a new form of fitness. By using your body weight to strengthen and tone, injuries are less likely to occur. And because no equipment is needed, you can do these exercises in the comfort of your own home. 3. Wearable Technology complement your sweat by way of fitness trackers, heart rate monitors and GPS devices. It’s a great way to track your fitness performance! 2. Group Training allows participants of different fitness levels to interact with one another and achieve great results. Socialization in group training distracts you from the intensity of the workout. 1. High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT continues to be in the top ranking of fitness trends since 2014. You can kick up the intensity of your cardio with short bursts of very hard work. HIIT improves endurance and complements strength development.

The New Year is young, resolutions are still fresh, AND people are moving forward with the best of intentions for better self-care in 2018. So who better to turn to than Wycliffe’s own Spa staff for insight into which trends have staying power and which are likely to fizzle faster than a New Year’s resolution in February?

By The team at The Spa at Wycliffe

Sublime Skin Corrective Facial: Loss of elasticity, hyperpigmentation and dullness are all concerns addressed with this facial. During the double exfoliation phase, cellular regeneration is stimulated, revealing an even-toned and refreshed appearance. An anti-fatigue eye treatment and Hexapeptide plumping mask restore full and redefine the volume of the face. Skin Fitness Body Scrub: An anti-aging cocktail blend of Maqui Berries, Chia seeds and Spinach extract will provide powerful nutrients to your skin and leave you ready to face the day. HydraFacial with CTGF Boost: A customizable, rejuvenating skin resurfacing treatment that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With naturally derived growth factors being the main ingredient, skin health and vitality will improve overall and skin will be brought back to its youthful state. Gel Polish Pedicure: Gel feels more natural and less rigid than acrylic nail extensions. Gel polish nails mean nails are dry immediately upon completion of the service so no worry about smudging or ruining one's pedicure. Gels wear considerably longer than nail polish, requiring fewer trips to the salon, allowing for greater intervals between applications, and saving precious time for busy women. 21 Drops Massage: Combines inhalation through the olfactory system of the nose and absorbs through the surfaces of the skin with essential oils.

All things ‘wellness’ are the most in-demand treatments in spas right now. And, it’s not just a fad that will come and go. People are slowly realizing the importance of a balanced life – body, mind and spirit. In a world of high stress, packed daily schedules and multiple demands on our time and attention, finding ways to reduce stressors has never been more important. Treatments such as facials, massages, body scrubs and pedicures balance and heal the body while calming the mind and spirit.

Bocce, What?

From Old World Sport to New World Sensation

ORIGINALLY AN ITALIAN STREET GAME and at one time little known in the United States, Bocce Ball has now taken root in the American sports culture – more specifically here at Wycliffe Golf & Country Club. After a peek in interest, the Club built two official Bocce Courts on which a total of 14 teams play throughout the year.

So how do you play? Games can be played one-on-one, in pairs, triples or foursomes. Each team gets four balls (red or green) and a there is one small yellow ball, called the Pallino, that is thrown by one of the teams. Each team has the opportunity to throw one of the four larger balls (red or green) and the goal is to get as close to the Pallino as possible. The winner with the highest score is based on how close your red or green balls are to the Pallino ball. Each set allows for up to four points per team and the first to get eight points, wins!

Best way to learn Come out and play! The courts are lit and available morning, noon and night – first come, first serve and the equipment is right there for you. Looking to play competitively? Each of your neighborhoods has a team and tryouts are held every year. Contact Dr. Paul Brenner for more information at drpaulbrenner@aol.com. 16

Spring2018 Renovator Program 10124 Andover Coach Circle Unit B2

This property, in the beautiful Andover community, was purchased via an online auction. As a second floor unit it is unique in that it is one of the few with an elevator. The renovation was a complete knockdown and included the removal of the heating and air system, hot water heater, popcorn ceiling, and railing. Most noteworthy was the transformation made in the kitchen and bathrooms. Light colors, new flooring and modern finishes give these rooms a fresh new perspective.

Quick Tech Tips

CONSUMER CREDIT CARD FRAUD

Lloyd and Sandra Sand in Jerusalem with friends in October

Credit card fraud alert! Scammers are continuously coming up with new credit cards scams. The way it works is that a scammer will call you claiming to be from the fraud department of the credit card company. They will volunteer your personal information and sound very official. They will provide a claim number and claim to remove the fraudulent charges, giving you a number to call back if you have any further issues. In the process of this call, they will ask to verify that you have the card on hand and will ask for the three digits security code. With this information, the scammer can now charge your credit card for purchases. How to avoid these scams? Just know, in general, credit card companies will not call you out of the blue. They will not ask for personal information. Companies tend to send emails, snail mail or even a text message asking you to contact the company directly. Do not volunteer any information. If your credit card is indicated as “hacked” or has “unusual activity,” contact your bank right away to report the suspicious activity. Do not call the phone number provided unless it is the same phone number found on the back of your credit card. If you think you are a credit card fraud victim, call your credit card company immediately to cancel your card and have a new card issued. As always if you have questions, write me at Docsteve@mac.com.
