As noted in our September Club Times, wildlife is very much a part of living in the Lowcountry. Over the last few months, we’ve witnessed an abundance of wildlife, from the depths of the waters to high in the skies.
While dolphins are typically the most commonly found mammal in our nearby waters, manatees have also been known to make an appearance, especially in the shallow waters near our docks. Earlier this summer, our Dockmaster, Warren Holland, captured rare footage of a manatee feeding off our docks. Check it out!
Other recent wildlife sightings have been red drum, alligators, deer, bald eagles and more!
If you’d like to learn more about our local wildlife, come on down to the Harbour Center. Warren can help you find and identify a number of different animals!
In recognition of #WaybackWednesday, we’re taking a look at how much our Front Gate has evolved since 1983.
When Wexford first opened its doors, the Security complex at the entrance/exit merely consisted of one building…and our Officers’ wore formal jackets and pith helmets.
A lot has changed since then!! Now our Officers enjoy light green collar shirts with black pants (and no helmet!). If you’ve come through our gates over the last couple months, you’ve likely seen or experienced construction at or near our Front Gate; we are pleased to report that our Front Gate Enhancement project is now complete! The scope of the project included enclosing our Guardhouse (so our officers are not exposed to the extreme heat, cold and bugs), adding a contractor pull-off lane and an enhanced member-only lane to expedite service at the Front Gate, adding a security parking lot and replacing broken curbing and asphalt along Wexford Drive. We hope you’ll take notice of the changes the next time you come through the gate!
Thanks to all for your patience as we completed our recent Front Gate Enhancement project.

This month’s issue is dedicated to two very popular sports here in Wexford, croquet and tennis. While they are incredibly different games, using different tools and requiring different strategies, there are a couple commonalities; both take place on a court, and both are considered life-long sports to enjoy. It’s never too early or late to get involved – so check out this issue to learn more!
Today, the Village at Wexford celebrated its grand opening of The Market! The Market will run every Wednesday from 11 am – 4 pm through August 30th. Lowcountry talent and entertainment will change weekly.
