Explore Florida’s Best Communities

Oh, Florida: Sunshine, sea, and plenty to see and do. Florida might be known as the go-to retirement state, but there’s a reason for it. Why not spend the best years of your life in an incredible place to live? Read on for why people relocate and retire in Florida to learn if it might be the right place for you.

Why live in a Florida community?

Florida is famous as a beach destination and a retirement location—but it’s more than meets the eye. Florida offers unbeatable nature access, year-round short-sleeve weather, and a pace of living that’s comfortable and accessible for families and retirees alike.

What are the benefits of living in Florida?

There are many reasons people choose to relocate to or retire in Florida. For one, the cost of living is hard to beat. There’s no state income tax, and property prices are notably reasonable.

    • Relaxed pace of life: Florida isn’t an island, but it’s a-okay to operate on island time here. The sunshine and friendly demeanor of Floridians means that you’re free to take your time, enjoy yourself, and live life in the present.
    • Warm weather: Sunshine is abundant in Florida, so no matter what city you choose, you’re sure to get your dose of Vitamin D and feel comfortable, all year long. No snow shovels in sight, no heavy jackets and gloves. Just you and mild weather.
  • Low taxes and cost of living: Florida has no state income tax, which is a major draw for many who are relocating here. But beyond taxes, Florida is also known for a low and reasonable cost of living.
  • Entertainment and arts: Hello, Disney World! Of course, there’s much more to the state than “The Most Magical Place On Earth.” Florida is filled with entertainment for all ages. Visit Art Basel in Miami each year to see fine art from around the world. Attend concerts outside. See art deco design speckled throughout town. Florida isn’t short on vibrant color and fun.
  • Outdoor activities: Florida’s coastlines provide opportunity for endless water activity—and the views aren’t bad either. Go kayaking at first light in Naples, stroll along the beach in the Keys, or take a hike while spotting wildlife in the Everglades.
  • National and state parks: Speaking of the Everglades, Florida is home to many national and state parks. Have you visited Dry Tortugas National Park, the only national park made mostly of water? Or lounged on the white sandy beaches of Key Biscayne? These destinations, which many consider once-in-a-lifetime vacations, are a long weekend for Florida residents.

Golf Community near Palm Beach Florida | Wellness Community | Wycliffe

Wycliffe Golf & Country Club

Wellington, FL

Welcome to where you belong.
Home to two 18-hole premier championship golf courses.
Home to 15 Har-Tru tennis courts, 4 pickleball courts, bocce and more.
Home to incredible dining and brilliant amenities.
Home to the best days ever. Every day.
Welcome home to Wycliffe.

Wycliffe Golf & Country Club in Wellington, FL unveiled its $18.2 million dollar renovation project to the membership in November 2019, showcasing the new contemporary spaces like “The Cliffe” (bar and lobby lounge) and “Flavours” (fine dining restaurant) receiving rave reviews from both members and their guests. Surprisingly, the project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget!
Not only was the Club’s food & beverage programming improved by the addition of the aforementioned spaces, but with a phased approach, a refreshed spa & fitness center, ballroom, driving range & short game area as well as an outdoor event pavilion, were all revealed earlier in the year.

The recently renovated Driving Range and Short Game area provide the members a practice facility second to none. The driving range features a 45,000 sq. ft. range tee, covershots canopy, and multiple target greens with bunkers to simulate shots players may encounter on the course. The short game area features two greens surrounded by bunkers where a player can hit any shot imaginable inside of 60 yards. The short game area covers 1.25 acres. These two areas make Wycliffe standout for those players interested in lowering their scores.
Because of the health of the project and a prudent approach to project management expenses, there was a great deal of added value included in the finished product. The Club added a new roof to the almost 100,000 sq. ft. building, major HVAC upgrades, and a beautiful water feature in the lobby – all of which were not in the original plan.

But that’s not all that was completed throughout the construction journey. While under construction for those 18 months, Wycliffe successfully merged with its homeowner’s association, resulting in $1M in efficiencies annually, as well as a streamlined and simplified governance structure. They were also able to complete a thorough branding study to differentiate themselves in the market and highlight who they are, with brand-new contemporary facilities and programming.
“Our great team of community volunteers partnered with professionals to give us a new look that exceeded our expectations. We’re celebrating 30 years with a fresh contemporary club that fits our vibrant lifestyle,” said Susan Brenner, President of Wycliffe’s Board of Directors.
As a mandatory membership community, home ownership is the key to living the Wycliffe way. Single-family homes (most with a golf cart garage to accommodate the preferred method of transportation), villas and condo residences are spread throughout 14 uniquely charming neighborhoods. Wycliffe is a real community, an enclave of friends, neighbors and partners ready to welcome you to share in this luxurious, leisurely lifestyle. Your best friends are here, even if you haven’t met them
yet.
