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” 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.
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).

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,’ which is 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 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 major benefit is being able to drive 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.
