Summertime Fun

Summer is in FULL swing here at Wexford & the Club is bustling with activity!

It’s been a busy month here at Wexford, in all areas of the club – from our Yacht Club to Tennis to Golf to Croquet to Wexford Wellness to Summer Camps to the Clubhouse!
See for yourself – check out our June Club Times and read recap below. 😉

Harbour/Yacht ClubCircumnavigation2In addition to our weekly Coffee Talk Tuesdays (now referred to as Morning Mariner) and monthly Commodore Dock Party, the Yacht Club hosted two special events this month. The first was Circumnavigation, in which over sixty members circled Hilton Head Island by boat.  During their “voyage,” the crews stopped and rafted up at Dolphin Head for some lunchtime fun in the sun.
The second trip is actually going on NOW – about 20 members took five boats and traveled up to Beaufort for the day to enjoy lunch at Q’ on the Bay.

TenniswimbBesides our regularly offered daily clinics ranging from Ladies Doubles to Cardio Tennis to Power Hour (and more!) and our complimentary monthly clinic (this month was Mixed Doubles Strategy), Wexford hosted the 5th Annual Wexford/Long Cove Open.  The three-day USTA sanctioned junior tennis tournament had over 90 competitors.  – It was a great showing of junior tennis!!
And wait, there’s more!  We hosted our annual Wimbledon at Wexford Round Robin just this week. Despite the heat, we had a great turnout – not to mention showdown! And what’s better than starting your morning with a breakfast for champions – strawberries & cream and scones!

Golf – Despite the two week golf course aerification, the Golf staff managed to host two rules clinics and the ever-popular Nine & Dine. Plus, our weekly Men’s Day (Tuesdays and Saturdays), Ladies Day (Thursdays) and Ladies Fore & Pour (Tuesdays) picked back up the second half of the month.

CroquetcroqOur monthly golf croquet social, Wine & Wickets, continues to grow! This month, we also hosted the Coastal Croquet Clubs annual “Croquet the Wexford Way.”  This event had 30 participants, with players coming in from Palmetto Bluff, Sun City and Dataw Island.

Wexford Wellness – Wexford Wellness is really kicking into high gear! In addition to our daily walking group (Monday through Friday mornings), weekly Yoga (Tuesdays) and Water Aerobics (Tuesdays and Thursdays), we hosted two special events this month. The first event was Zumba – who doesn’t like to dance?!  Our members loved it so much, we’ve decided to make it a weekly offering in the fall (when it cools down outside).  The second event was our Guest Speaker Luncheon. Not only did Chef Frank prepare an amazingly delicious (AND healthy!) meal, but the presentation by Lindsay Martin, RD was great!

Summer Camps – So far, we’ve hosted three summer camps – Camp Ace (Tennis), Camp Arnie (Golf) and Camp Recreation (All Sports). All the feedback has been great!!
We’ve got six more camps left this summer – it’s not too late to sign up!!

Clubhouse – And then there’s the Clubhouse – the hub of most social activity around Wexford!  Besides our regular W Grill menu, we introduced a Pool Lunch Menu.  Our Wednesday OneEleven continues to be a favorite for our families. Our Traditional Happy Hour (every Thursday) is a night not to miss, as it’s a great way to meet new neighbors and friends.  Special events this month included our Father’s Day Brunch, Pub Night with Pop and Spaghetti & Meatballs!

And now we’re off to prepare for our historically BIGGEST event of the year –
our 4th of July celebrations!
