On August 5, 2015, Wycliffe Golf & Country Club had the distinct honor of being named one of America’s Healthiest Clubs. This honor is only given to only a small percentage of private country clubs. The distinction helps Wycliffe recruit health conscious associates and members, increases members retention and helps lower health care costs. Wycliffe can now proudly display the service marks on its website and as part of any marketing collateral material within member communications.
The process of being chosen as one of America’s Healthiest Club includes numerous on-site interviews with department heads, a detailed analysis of our menu’s, activities, benefits programs and engagement tools. Officials then discuss with department heads on what’s working and what can do to improve our Club to better serve our Members. One of the largest portions of receiving this award, is our wellness programs. Wellness programs are designed to reduce or control health related needs of the membership and create different activities which leverage amenities and the club. The Wellness Health Report addresses five categories: Fitness, Nutrition, Staff, Members and Facilities. Each category has questions and ranked with a certain percentage.
According to Rick Ladendorf, President of Prevo Health Solutions says, “For many years, Wycliffe Golf & Country Club provided its Members and Staff with amenities, activities and wellness programs that have inspired hundreds of people to live active and healthier lives. Wycliffe’s new General Manager/COO, Darrell Wilde, has the commitment, passion and leadership style, that has inspired his team to further enhance a culture that’s worthy of any fortune 100 company. Congratulations to Darrell and his team on becoming one of America’s Healthiest Clubs!”
“We are extremely proud and honored to have received the America’s Healthiest Club Award. Providing our Members and Staff with healthier options is one of the ways Wycliffe commits to excellence. This is a very exciting time for our club and achieving this success is only the beginning.” said Wilde.
As an added note, we are very pleased to announce that Wycliffe will be adding more healthier dining options for our staff and creating a new brand for all of our current and future wellness and fitness programs.
