from the president

Busy times at Wycliffe! As the summer draws to a close, we eagerly anticipate the return of our “Snowbird” friends. Camp Wycliffe will soon, once again, teem with activity. Although quieter here during the summer, it is not inactive. Those of us who stay year-round find plenty to do. As our Club is in the process of undergoing many changes, it will be interesting to see the reactions of our returning members. The Fitness Center and Spa is now in their temporary quarters in the former Golf Locker and Men’s Card Rooms. The transitional Men’s Card Room has been active for some time now, in half of the Grande Lounge. The other half of the Grande Lounge is now home to Physical Therapy, Pilates and Aerobics Studios. The renovations to the main Kitchen and soon-to-be Grande Dining Room are already well underway. Now that the moves to the temporary facilities have been accomplished, the renovation to the Fitness Center & Spa has begun. While all of these changes are in process, the disruption to our day-to-day lives has been and will remain very minimal. Another obvious change our returning friends will see is the start to the Golf Driving Range renovation. The renovation will correct severe drainage problems and replace a non-functioning irrigation system. In addition, its eye-appeal will be significantly improved and is estimated to reopen late this fall. The modifications to West 17 and the creation of a new, larger practice area will be done next year at no additional cost due to the separation of the projects. Lastly, the “One Wycliffe” decision is upon us. The purpose of “One Wycliffe” is to create a more efficient business model, by merging the functions of the WCA and Club. Multiple informational meetings will be held throughout October, with the decision made by members of both Boards and both organizations early in November. All-in-all, these are very exciting times for Wycliffe and the future appears very bright, as we continue to enjoy our wonderful lifestyle.

Doug Lipman President

from the general manager

Dear Members, Phase II of the Renovation project has begun! The journey continues as we embark on improving your Club and member experience. Our temporary facilities have been completed and are open for use. I hope you have enjoyed the videos and email communications we have been sending to keep you informed of all the progress. Here are a few other happenings as we gear up for another successful season. We have transitioned to Northstar as our primary club management software platform. This system provides us with an all-in-one suite of services to replace the multiple platforms and deficiencies of the old programs. If you have not already downloaded the member app or checked out the new website, I encourage you to do so. We have provided member training courses and will offer more in the winter to educate you on the new services that Northstar has to offer. Our seasonal staff are beginning to return to Wycliffe, and I am pleased to report that you will recognize quite a few familiar faces. Our team is energized to deliver another year filled with the many activities and amenities you have come to enjoy. As we continue with the construction, please be cautious of the signs and areas with limited access. Our number one goal throughout this project remains the safety and security of our members and staff. I look forward to seeing you all around Camp Wycliffe very soon.

chef ’s corner

AS A KITCHEN ARTIST AND GARDE MANGER CHEF, it has always been in me to produce food that stands out and is appealing to the eyes. As my old chef at the Ritz Carlton taught me: People eat with their eyes first. So, I wanted to create a “wow factor” with this beet dish. Often times when beets come up, people think of them as a red, messy, hard to handle vegetable. But on the contrary, it is unique and comes in a variety of colors.

Bon Appétit! — Chef O’Brian Mullings

BEET NAPOLEON

BLOOD ORANGE RELISH

2 lbs. beets, golden and/or red

1 blood orange, peeled and segmented

11 oz. package goat cheese, softened (at room temperature)

4 tbsp. red onion, finely diced

4 sage leaves, minced

2 tbsp. parsley, chopped

2 tbsp. parsley, chopped

½ green bell pepper, finely diced

¾ tsp. honey

3 tbsp. olive oil

salt and cracked pepper

Directions

petite greens

Run a knife through the ingredients. Finely chop the ingredients and toss them in a bowl with olive oil to form the relish.

Directions Preheat the oven to 350° F. Wrap the beets individually in aluminum foil. Bake for 1-hour, until a knife is easily inserted into the beet. Let them cool, and peel the skin off. Use a mandolin to slice the beets about 1/4 inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter so that each beet is cut into a circle. Mix the sage and parsley with the goat cheese. Add the honey and season with freshly cracked pepper and salt to taste. Put dollops of goat cheese in between layers of sliced beet, until you get four slices of beet per napoleon. Serve with the Petit Greens and Blood Orange Relish and garnish with a Grissini Italian bread stick.

BEET REDUCTION 1 cup beet juice 1 cup red port wine ½ cup honey ½ cup dry white wine

Directions Add all ingredients to a small sauce pan; simmer on medium to low heat until reduced to a syrup-like state. W YC LI F F E M AGA ZI N E

TIP

One of the great temptations in doubles is to watch your partner hit the ball, particularly when at the baseline. Instead, trust that your partner is doing great back there. Focus on moving your feet, looking forward and inching closer to the net into a more aggressive volleying position.

As I consider potential hires as Racquet Director at Wycliffe, my goal is always to prepare my employees to improve and move forward successfully. I am pleased to say that Brandon Michels will be returning to Wycliffe this Fall. Brandon has been teaching tennis at New Canaan Field Club in New Canaan, Connecticut for the last five months. He is now a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional. Brandon will assist with team tennis, kid’s lessons and events. He came to Wycliffe six years ago with no tennis experience or knowledge, but with a will to learn and love for the game,

RULE REFRESHER DOUBLE TROUBLE TENNIS RULING: THE CODE ITEM 14: If one player calls the ball out and his partner sees the ball good, the ball is good. There is no playing 2 or taking the point over again. Since the receiver and his partner are now considered in disagreement about the call, you win the point under The Code Item 14.

TIP •••

Drive for show, putt for dough By Paul Rifenberg, PGA

There is a lot of truth to that statement. If you ask any great player if they would rather be a great ball striker or clutch putter, they would all quickly respond clutch putter. Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus are probably the greatest clutch putters to ever play the game. From watching them putt to listening to them talk, I picked out a few great tips to help you hole more putts under pressure: Be relentless with your routine. There is no specific routine that each person must follow, but you should have one. Once you develop a routine on the greens, it should be exactly the same for every putt. Whether it is a 40-foot putt that breaks three times or a 2-foot putt that is straight in, it is essential that you follow the same routine. You can put a stopwatch on Jack or Tiger on the first green and the last, and watch them take the same amount of time to do the same steps prior to each putt. Be a confident putter. Great clutch putters have endless confidence. After Jack or Tiger make a putt under pressure that seems nearly impossible, the announcers always comment “he willed that one in” or “he just looked like he knew it was going in.” Any pro will tell you that the last thought you should have before hitting any putt involves seeing the ball go in the hole. Start believing you are a great putter and you will see more putts hit the bottom of the hole. Please feel free to stop by the golf shop if you have any questions or comments. See you on the greens!

FEATURE

HONOR FLIGHT Honor Flight recognizes Veterans for their military service and sacrifices to our nation by flying them to Washington, DC to see their memorials at no cost to the Vet. Honor Flight is a non-profit organization that provides veterans a trip of a lifetime. Their #1 objective is to ensure a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience to as many Veterans as possible.

Wycliffe takes the skies on Honor Flight… On April 14, 2018 members Stan Levin, Gerry Post & Jerry Wilks arrived at Palm Beach International Airport just before 5 am where they would be greeted with bands, bunting and onlookers cheering them on. More than 80 vets, along with an Ambassador for each vet, 5 medics and assorted personnel hopped on board a chartered American Airlines flight straight to Washington D.C. through the support of the Honor Flight Program. Upon arrival, the pomp and circumstance was exciting, overwhelming and beyond their every expectation. They began their day in D.C. at Arlington Cemetery where they saw the Changing of the Guards. Next, they went to the World War II Memorial along with 11 other Honor Flights from all over the country. The final stop was the Korean War Memorial. After a long, yet meaningful day, the Vets and their Ambassadors hopped on a plane where they were then presented with a good ol’ fashioned Mail Call with letters from their families, friends, school children and volunteers. After reading these letters of admiration they arrived at PBIA where the greeting was even more amazing then what they had experienced earlier – if that was even possible! Bag pipe bands, families and spectators 3-deep lined the concourse as they made their way through the airport. This was a day that these men will NEVER forget. If you or someone you know is interested in learning about the Honor Flight program, you may visit www.honorflightsefl.org, email veterans@honorflightsefl.org or call 1-855-FLY-A-VET. 18

FEATURE Exciting times are ahead for Wycliffe with the Renovation well underway! Here’s a brief snapshot of what has been going on behind the scenes!

RENOVATION UPDATES

How Sweet! Callie was quick to jump Up to Par! The very anticipated Driving Range renovation began in August and if into the bulldozer when it was demo there was ever a space that needed a facelift, it was definitely this area! Better day! We aren’t quite sure if she’s more drainage, irrigation and cosmetics are only a few short weeks away! excited to destroy the existing space or to get a new kitchen!

Show me the money! Accounting has scored a newly renovated office space right across from the Ladies’ Card Room. A more convenient location for our members and staff.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! The temporary Spa & Salon opened in early September. Members and their guests can receive all the same services as before… remember, check-in is just across the hall in the Fitness Center.

Whatcha got cookin’, good lookin’? Our culinary team cannot be more excited to move back into their newly renovated kitchen space. If you thought the food was already delicious… just wait!

The Grande Dining Room is making progress! New windows were installed and the remainder of the work is well underway. We all cannot wait to see this room in action! 20

House Beautiful

Fall2018 Homeowners Ted & Ellen Sandler 4546 Carlton Golf Drive

After purchasing their Cambridge house to rent out as an investment, Ted and Ellen enjoyed their time at Wycliffe so much that they decided to sell their home in New York to live in Wycliffe permanently. Because of the beautiful view and convenience of their location, they decided to go forward with a complete renovation.

BEFORE

The Sandler’s enlisted the help of resident designer, Linda Schwartz, who assisted in redesigning their living space by removing walls, moving electric and plumbing, adding storage and changing out floors and kitchen cabinets. The home went from a dated living space to a light, bright and modern open-concept.

CALLING ALL HOME RENOVATORS Have you recently completed a major renovation in your home? Submit your before and after (high-resolution) photos to Taylor Griesen at t.griesen@wycliffecc.com for consideration in an upcoming issue.
