Quick Tech Tips

BY DR. STEVE TERAN

Multitasking on the iPhone

Many times when I am on the phone, I am asked a question that requires me to look at my calendar or reference an email. There is an easy technique to multitask while on a phone call using your iPhone – you can put your caller on Speaker. Speaker phone allows you to hear your callers without having the phone up to your ear. You may touch the Home Button, or swipe up on the new models of the iPhone, and choose which application you need to work with. For example, I am able to put my callers on speaker, go to the home screen and choose my Calendar. I may use to use this application to its full capability while the call is still in progress. You will see that the call is still in progress at the top of the screen as there will be a green bar that shows you are still on the call.

Changing Seasons at Wycliffe The “season” at Wycliffe ended with some record numbers. We enjoyed 92 cultural events that included lectures, trips, classes, book and movie discussions and DVD learning series. Showcase and Trivia nights topped the music and entertainment category which featured 48 events. Bridge and Canasta lessons made up a large part of our 78 card events and staff conducted over 70 New Member Orientations and Meet & Greets. In addition to golf, tennis, and fitness for our youngsters, there were 30 kids’ activities that included everything from wild animals to the ever-popular Candy Sushi. Now summertime finds Wycliffe on the move. About 35% of us spend at least part of the warmer season up north in a cooler climate. Those of us who live full-time at Wycliffe often visit families spread out all over the U.S. and beyond. However, many of us enjoy the “quiet time” in South Florida and a different pace of activities right here at home. Groups combine for cards and Trivia nights, and the courts light up for cool, nighttime tennis, bocce and pickleball. Music and Comedy nights continue throughout the summer, and we have access to reciprocal dining at Clubs throughout the county. Of course, Chef Christopher has some culinary treats lined up for us such as Steakhouse Night and Seafood Fest. The icing on the cake will be just that - dessert cooking classes in the bakery with our very own Callie, Pastry Chef extraordinaire! Those of us who are here for even part of the summer get to see the progress of the renovation as areas of our Clubhouse are revealed. It’s exciting to see an even more beautiful setting for all of our activities. Whether you are visiting family, traveling to new places or enjoying the good life here at Wycliffe, have a happy, healthy summer.

from the general manager AS WE WIND DOWN “SEASON,” our team is very excited to rollout new programs around the Club for our year-round residents. We are offering wonderful reciprocal opportunities in Palm Beach County. Please let us know if you need assistance booking reservations here or at those reciprocating clubs. The renovation project is developing at a rapid pace and we have a lot to be proud of. The wellness areas, including the Fitness and Spa amenities, have become quite popular and we are seeing much more engagement from our members, even in the summer. The Men’s Card Room has reopened to rave reviews from the Membership. This space offers lounge style seating as well as card room amenities for poker, gin, bridge and the like. Great progress is being made in the upper west corridor, including the former Lounge and Main Lobby, and these spaces are being converted to accommodate the Bar, Lobby Lounge and New Restaurant. The roof project will be completed just in time for the rainy season. The Grille renovations for the lobby and bar are proceeding on schedule. These areas will be upgraded with automatic doors, enhanced restroom amenities and a refreshed arrival experience. The bar is undergoing a “facelift” to bring the look and design to the quality and standards of other areas around the Club. We target this to be fully completed and operational by the end of the summer. Additionally, I hope you are taking notice of the Golf renovation project on West 17. Shaping and construction are wrapping up and grassing will begin soon. The short game amenity is an important one that many members will enjoy for years to come. Paul and his team look forward to programming some new events throughout different times of the year. Stay tuned for more details! I would like to acknowledge our team members for delivering another successful year of service to the membership. With all the construction around the property, I know our staff members were tested and challenged to deliver quality service despite all the shifting and moving for the renovation. Not only did we offer full amenities, but in some areas, we experienced record participation and engagement levels. This truly speaks to the talented team we have here at Wycliffe that I am proud to lead into our next chapter. I cannot wait until you see the finished project later this year, which will be delivered on time and on budget. Have a wonderful summer.

GB: I have been working at Wycliffe for 16 years total - five years as a contractor and 11 years as an employee. W: Explain your role at the club. GB: In my earlier years at Wycliffe, I was a Studio Instructor teaching Spin, Aerobics, Core, Stretch and Mat Pilates. In 2008, a Pilates Studio was part of the renovation and I was given full responsibility of its development. Currently, my role is Studio Coordinator.

During this time, I was in school and this industry was appealing to me due to the availability to work nights and weekends. Each day I learned different ideas, how to mix different drinks and create unique cocktails. As the years kept passing by, I began to really enjoy what I was doing and had an overwhelming passion for my job.

Below I have created a refreshing summer cocktail that I am sure you’ll enjoy!

Basic Guidelines for a

Positive

Playing Experience By Kam Kuchta, Director of Tennis 1 Timing. It is very important to wait and enter the court at your assigned time. It is unfair for the players on the court or nearby courts to be distracted by noise or movement while they are still playing. 2 Warm-Ups. The purpose is to loosen your muscles and focus on the ball. For the most part, hit the ball with half power. Place your shots around the middle so your opponents can easily return the ball without having to hustle.

K AM’S KORNER

TIP

MOVING WITHOUT THE TENNIS BALL

Simply put, most club players only move to the ball to make contact. High level amateurs move back after contact to get back into a good position. Top doubles players are always moving to improve court position while their partner or opponents are striking the tennis ball. So, remember, move without the ball – there’s no standing around in this game!

3 Score. The server should always announce the score before each point. After the game, players should record the game score on the scorekeeper located at the end of the net. 4 Behavior & Attitude. Positive attitude encourages positive play. Players must restrain themselves from shouting or throwing their racquet around. Undoubtedly, your attitude affects you and other players on the court. Respect your opponents and players on courts next to you. 5 Close Calls. If you cannot clearly tell or show the mark of your opponent’s shot and it is a close call, it is in. You must be 100 percent sure you are making the right call. Always remember to call the ball in a loud and clear voice only after the ball has landed.

ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL

By Zack Campbell, Assistant Golf Professional

•••

TeeTime GOLF HOURS Golf Pro Shop 7 am - 3 pm daily

Because I’ve played and studied golf and club fittings for most of my life, one thing I notice when it comes to average amateur golfers is that they often play with the wrong clubs. Quite frequently, I see players playing with clubs that are too stiff for their swing and with a set they’ve had since they were younger. This causes them to lose distance and have a lower ball flight than they had when they first purchased the clubs. Believe it or not, having your clubs fitted is one of the most, if not the most, important aspect when it comes to the game of golf. In my experience, when golfers buy a stock set off the wall rather than having a set fitted specifically for them, the accuracy is usually minimal. There tends to be more misses and shots aren’t going the way that the golfer expects. After I fit golfers into the right shaft, the accuracy is much higher. The golfers hit more fairways and greens because the clubs are specifically made for them and their swing. Any club fitter can look at different numbers and angles, but the most important numbers to look at are the club head speed, carry distance and total distance. Those three aspects are mostly found in the shaft. The weight, length and flex of the club are also crucial aspects when it comes to having the most accuracy. Players can gain distance if they have the correct shaft in their clubs. Here is a chart (Driver Swing Speeds) that can help you get started with the shaft flex you should have in your clubs. The Callaway Fitting Cart is available in the Golf Shop and has multiple head and shaft combination options to help you swing the correct club.

DRIVER SWING SPEEDS Less than 65 mph Ladies Flex 65 – 75 mph

Senior Flex

75 – 90 mph

Regular Flex

90 – 105 mph

Stiff Flex

105 – Above X-Flex At Wycliffe Golf & Country Club, every member has the opportunity to set up a time with any of the Pros to get fitted for a set of clubs or a driver. So, next time you’re in the Golf Shop, feel free to ask us!

BEAT the

IT’S GETTING WARMER OUTSIDE and while the extra daylight hours and sunshine are

great for getting some fresh air and vitamin D, sometimes it’s just too hot to safely exercise outside. If you were thinking your workout was going on the back burner this summer, you are mistaken. You can beat the South Florida heat and continue improving your lifestyle – all you need is to be open to changing your routine. Below are some trendy classes offered at Wycliffe for you to enjoy, so the only thing you are burning this summer are calories!

Tai Chi: Slowness, Lightness, Balance, Calmness, Clarity If the description itself doesn’t take the summer heat away, then this class certainly will! Tai Chi is a Chinese exercise program that uses slow, smooth body movements to achieve a state of relaxation of both the body and mind. If attended regularly, Tai Chi improves muscle tone, flexibility, balance and coordination. Relieving stress, boosting energy and stamina and sharpening reflexes are other benefits associated with Tai Chi.

Aqua Boxing What better way to take a break from the heat than jumping into a pool? The latest craze is boxing in the water and it’s in full effect at Wycliffe. Buoyancy of water helps to execute exercises without burdening the joints. In all exercises and grips, the abdominals are essential for the correct implementation of all positions, while arms and legs are involved in larger movements during the class. Balance, agility and flexibility are all areas that are improved, but truthfully, what’s better than finding your inner Rocky Balboa? It’s a fun, versatile workout for all fitness levels and all you need is your sun protection, hat, towel and smile – we provide the rest!

Yoga Classes With six yoga-style classes offered at Wycliffe, there is no reason to miss these mind and body workouts. The benefits of practicing Yoga are not only limited to increasing flexibility, improving heart health and keeping a balanced mind but also better sleeping habits, less sickness and decreased levels of stress. The more Yoga is practiced, the more you discover that your involvement gives you the power to effect change and seeing that change, opens the mind to endless possibilities. These classes are offered indoors – another option for staying fit this summer.

If you are determined to get your workout in the great outdoors, here are a few tips to stay cool and hydrated: Zumba Did you know

Switch the Routine – Instead of walking to the Fitness Center, take your golf cart and work on engaging your core as you are driving. This will warm up muscle groups and improve posture. Water is Your Friend – Stay hydrated all day. Electrolytes and water must be replevined all day long!

Fit, Fit, F I T N E S S H O U R S Hooray!

•••

that dancing during a Zumba class can burn up to 900 calories? This action-packed workout is sure to be a great time for you and your friends. Inspired by different styles of South American dance and exercises, Zumba became popular in the 1990s. Burning calories and toning muscles are only part of the fun – social interaction, enjoyment of exercising and support from friends make this a class not to miss. If you pay attention, you may learn some new moves for your next night out on the town!

Be Flexible – Exercise in the early morning or after sunset to avoid the extreme heat.

Wine –

is Your Skin a RAISIN or a GRAPE? By Donna Forte

Director of Spa & Fitness

SSUUMMMME ERR2 20 01 19 9 •• WWYYCCLLI IFFFFEE MMAAGGAAZZI INNEE


What makes a bottle of vino so fine? As with many things, success is achieved through the collaboration of multiple factors to produce a better end-product. The same applies to winemaking – the creation of fine wine rests upon factors such as the variety of grapes used, light, temperature, soil conditions, fermentation length and of course, the skin. The color, thickness and health of a grape’s skin are all contributing factors to the end result – the same can be stated about our skin and our overall well-being.

THE SKIN

is the largest organ in the body and it is constantly exposed to the elements – just like wine grapes. Regarding our appearance, prolonged exposure to UV radiation directly affects the color and texture of our skin. Those brown spots on our arms and hands that are referred to as “liver spots” or “age spots” are a build-up of chronic sun exposure and sun damage. When a grape is dried by the sun, the texture and quality of the skin transform from a plump, water-filled fruit to a wrinkled, shriveled raisin. Our skin is very similar to that of a grape’s skin – loss of elasticity and a leathery feel are direct by-products of extensive sun exposure resulting in a raisin. Would you rather have the skin of a grape or raisin? If you chose grape, let’s learn more about how to protect your skin from the sun this summer. Sun protection is not a pick or choose activity – a comprehensive approach is needed to ensure appropriate protection. From the inside out – eating a diverse and colorful diet, getting quality sleep and moderate exercise are key parts of a sun-protective strategy. From the outside in – minimize sun exposure between 10 am and 2 pm, accessorize with wide-brim hats and wear clothing that provides maximum coverage offering a UPF rating of 50. Lastly, wear sunscreen – broad spectrum, UVA/UVB protection with a SPF rating of 30. Don’t forget to apply 30 minutes before going outdoors and every 2 hours if outdoor activity is continuous or produces sweat. Like a fine wine, our skin will age – however, if we can take measures to preserve the beauty and health of our skin, this process will not be as drastic. So, the choice is yours – grape or raisin –

which would you rather be?

After renting for one season in Wycliffe, we knew it was the place for us! We bought a home in Huntington and after our first winter, we recognized the need for a full renovation. We especially wanted to upgrade the bathrooms and the kitchen. We enlisted the help of Linda Schwartz, resident designer, and her team of licensed professionals.

AFTER

Redesigning the complete interior - walls were removed, electric and plumbing relocated, storage and workspace stations created, flooring, cabinets, counters and appliances were all replaced. This dated and tired home was changed into a gorgeous, light and transitional open-concept. With the addition of a large kitchen island and the removal of the pantry wall, the house really opened-up and the result was perfect!
