On Tuesday, April 28th, the Wexford Women’s Golf Association (WWGA) hosted a golf outing for 16 elementary students participating in The First Tee of The Lowcountry. The afterschool outing included golf instruction by the Wexford Golf Staff, followed by on-course play facilitated by the ladies of the WWGA.
The WWGA initially got involved with The First Tee of The Lowcountry last year when they were selected as the WWGA’s annual holiday charity partner. Having been aware of neighbor and Executive Director of The First Tee of The Lowcountry, Mike Davis’, efforts and knowing the program’s core values, the WWGA felt it was a wonderful partnership. The WWGA’s annual holiday tournament raised $2,820, which was donated to The First Tee of The Lowcountry. The donated funds were dedicated to the purpose of helping students get out on the course, to assist with any greens and cart fees at participating clubs.
In the future, the WWGA plans to look for other opportunities to help make a difference and get involved. Click here to learn more about The First Tee of The Lowcountry.
Little efforts that make a big difference
We take great pride in the pristine condition of Wexford Plantation. Maintaining this level of condition requires a significant effort. Wexford Staff has taken the initiative to keep our community clean and grow with “green” operations in mind. With our Cleaner & Greener Initiative, we aim to incorporate a simple, sensible approach to environmental responsibility in areas such as facility, supplies and business practices. This initiative started with the Staff and has continued with the support of the membership.
For those who aren’t aware of our efforts, continue reading – and see how you can join us in keeping our community cleaner and greener!

HAPPY EARTH DAY!
One of the Island’s most anticipated events of the year has officially started –
PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage presented by Boeing (April 13-19)!
11 am today marked the start of the 47th Annual Heritage Tournament at Harbour Town Golf Links in Sea Pines Resort – complete with a parade, opening tee shot by defending champion Matt Kuchar on the 18th hole and a cannon blast over the Calibouge Sound. Drawing attention from some of the world’s greatest golfers (including 2015 Masters Champion, Jordan Spieth!), RBC Heritage is a national and local phenomenon alike!
For those attending RBC Heritage this year, be sure to review this year’s parking/transportation policies.
In celebration of Heritage – and in true Heritage tradition here at Wexford – we’ll offer our Heritage Grill Night a la carte menu Thursday, April 16th through Saturday, April 18th. We have some great starters to “Tee Off” with including Wexford’s She Crab Soup, Classic Caesar Salad, Wedge Salad and Plaid Salad (now that just sounds like a winner!!), followed by the “Main Event,” showcasing Prime Filet Mignon, Bone-In Prime Ribeye, New Zealand Lamb, Prime NY Strip, Fried Soft Shell Crab, Chilean Sea Bass, Dry-Aged Ribeye and Grilled Double-Cut Berkshire Pork Chops. Call the Clubhouse to make your reservations – (843) 715-0912.
