If you’ve ever played Stickball as a kid in Brooklyn, NY, then you’d know the joy and excitement it brings. The “Wycliffe Stiffs” of Wycliffe Golf & Country Club in Wellington, FL. have brought that nostalgic feeling right back to Palm Beach County. The “Stiffs” as most call them, have recently made a short video/documentary, showcasing their incredible talent and love for the game. We are proud to announce that this short film entitled “Meet the Wycliffe Stiffs”, Directed by Monica Kallas of SharpShooter Marketing Group and produced by Krista Martinelli of and originally sponsored by Risë and Sean Siegrist of Re/Max, has been accepted into the 21st Palm Beach International Film Festival!

The film festival, which goes from April 6-14, 2016, showcases some of the best up and coming film Directors, Producers and Actors in the business. You can catch the Wycliffe Stiffs Video Documentary on Saturday, April 9th at 2:15 p.m. and on Tuesday, April 12 at 11 a.m. at The G-Star School of the Arts  in Palm Springs, FL.

The Wycliffe Stiffs are possibly the funniest group of athletes in South Florida. They are re-creating a special time from their past in Brooklyn, N.Y. by playing Stickball – competitively. They have something very special that others don’t have. It’s called the magic formula for staying young – laughing everyday and staying active!

“It’s truly exciting to be able to share a fantastic film about a bunch of guys re-living their childhood and playing the game that they fell in love with. It’s an honor to be part of the festival. Thank you to all involved in making this happen for the team,” said league player Marty Ross (The Commish).

Wycliffe Golf & Country Club Sees Dramatic User Increase with Online Dining Reservation System

Wycliffe Golf & Country Club Sees Dramatic User Increase with Online Dining Reservation System

Sometimes, golf and country clubs such as ours, find that there are certain challenges in managing a highly-engaged membership. We hold many events for our membership that get a very high turnout rate, such as our very popular Trivia Night – so much, that sometimes we’ve even encountered an overbooking.

Clubessential, the company that maintains our website, also has developed technology to help with reservation bookings. They designed a lottery reservation system that would give our members a better chance of attending future events at the Club.

A few advantages of Clubessential’s technology, is that it reduces the work load for staff and the Club can seamlessly send out marketing messages of upcoming events on the dining email confirmation notice. A very important aspect to point out is it takes our communication with members to a new level. There are now more ways to discuss their specific needs and desires. We can provide a more personal and unique experience and that is everything when it comes to country club living.

“We know that our Club must stay on the forefront of new technologies. Part of our job is researching innovative ways to stay on top of the game. We always think about what’s in our members’ best interests, which includes advancing our technology for better communications. We are very proud to say that since acquiring this new system, we’ve quickly seen results. Forty-one percent of members are already utilizing it. It’s wonderful to see this level of engagement so soon,” said Cheryl Loder, Membership & Marketing Director at Wycliffe Golf & Country Club.

Providing a member experience that is memorable and unique and having the willingness to constantly improve is what this award is all about. This is something that Wycliffe knows very well.

So the question on everyone’s mind is how do you get nominated? Boardroom magazine has their guidelines as well as a lengthy evaluation process which includes having their own member experience rating system. Making sure our service and quality is impeccable, are just two of the many parts to this system.

Fits Like a Club!

Golfers come in all different shapes and sizes and there are plenty of clubs to suit every imaginable body type. However, not all these clubs are available ‘off-the-rack.’ That’s why there is custom-fitting. Just like the name suggests, custom-fitting is the building of individual golf clubs that are designed specific to a golfer’s size, shape and swing.


One of the most common questions members at our Club ask our golf professionals is “Am I using the right club or would I hit lower scores with a set of custom clubs?”

“Custom-fitting clubs can provide a great advantage to a player. When you’re comfortable on the course, you’re going to play better, it’s that simple. Having custom-fitted clubs can provide a player with a wide range of advantages, the big one being driving the ball farther with more ease. Other important factors include: length, lie, shaft flex, grip size, and shaft weight. We are now very happy to offer our members this service.” said Head Golf Professional at Wycliffe Golf & Country Club and PGA Member, Paul Rifenberg.

Keep in mind that if you do decide to go this route, you should start to notice slight improvements to your game once you get comfortable with the new clubs. It just takes time getting used to.

Wycliffe members can directly contact our Golf Professionals directly to set up an appointment or ask any questions.
