Entrepreneur, Harvey Geller was the visionary for Wycliffe Golf & Country Club; Geller settled on the remote, agricultural location of Lake Worth Road and the intersection of State Road 7 (Route 441). He envisioned building an upscale country club in the rapidly-growing locale between Boca Raton and Palm Beach Gardens. This area bordered suburban Lake Worth and the Village of Wellington. He understood the growing demand for an upscale country club community with undulating golf courses, tennis complex and a full-service clubhouse and was determined to create a thriving lifestyle destination.
His vision turned into a reality and the Wycliffe grand opening in 1989 exceeded all expectations. The first homes were in the Andover, Barclay and Cambridge neighborhoods and building continued until the club reached 1,045 residences in 14 neighborhoods! By the end of 1994, the clubhouse was expanded to include a new Cabana Club, Tennis Pro Shop, a second golf course, Dining Room and the Fitness Center.
The club is successful today because each generation of members has picked up the mantle and helped develop significant changes making Wycliffe the remarkable country club it is today. The Club continues to make the community stronger, more desirable and yet even more vibrant in the years to come.
"Over the years, Wellington has evolved into a winter oasis for the upper crust, who come to ride, mingle, and bask in the warm weather."
