4 Decorating Ideas to Spring Into at Baywood Greens

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on March 21st, 2017

It’s time to say good-bye to the snow shovels and hello to open windows because spring is here at Baywood Greens! Most people tend to get overwhelmed with spring-cleaning this time of year, but decorating your home for spring can be a fun, relaxing activity. There’s no need to go all-out with redecorating, as most of our tips are simple and won’t cost you much money (or any at all!). Check out some fun spring decorating ideas for your Baywood Greens home.

Fresh flowers

Springtime means all those flowers that were hiding during the winter will be making an appearance! Place flowers in any room of your Baywood Greens home to instantly freshen up the room. Make a centerpiece for your dining room table or counter, or place smaller arrangements on end tables. You can even float peonies or hydrangeas in a clear bowl for a different twist on a centerpiece. Get some inspiration from this season’s blooms at Baywood Greens!

Doorway Décor

There are so many ways that you can decorate your door and welcome people into your home! Hang a wreath on your door than incorporates flowers (they can be real or fake) and spring colors. Try using greens, blues, yellows, and pinks for a springtime touch. For those who prefer a more muted palate, use a light gray or white with just a pop of color! Change out your heavy-duty winter doormat for a fun spring doormat to add another element to your entryway. Place potted flowers next to your door for even more cheer!

Mason Jars

Mason jars have stayed on trend for years and can be used to decorate just about any space in your home. Instead of a vase, use a mason jar to hold flowers. They’re small enough to place anywhere and still make a statement in any room. If you have a sweet tooth, fill a few mason jars with spring-colored candy and place them throughout your home. Mason jars can also be used as drinking glasses, so set them out for guests to use when they arrive.

Linens

Warm weather is around the corner and its time to put away the flannel sheets! Trade out your heavy sheets for crisp, light linens. Brighten up your living area by adding light colored throw pillows, such as white or neutral colors, to your couches and chairs. Put away the heavy winter blankets and opt for lighter throw blankets that will still keep you warm throughout the spring.

Baywood Greens Makes Golf Advisor’s “Top 50 U.S. Courses of 2016” List!

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on March 17th, 2017

As a Baywood Greens resident, you already know how amazing our community is, from the amenities to the location and new homes. While many have recognized our community as one of the top resort communities in the area, our “exclusively public” golf course also continues to receive high ratings from many golfers!

Last month, Golf Advisor listed the Baywood Greens golf course #47 in their Top 50 Courses in the United States for 2016! Not only was Baywood Greens the only course on the list from our great state of Delaware, but also it was the only course on the list within a 150-mile radius of our community. 

While many “top” lists are chosen by professionals or major publications, this list was created using reviews from actual golfers who have enjoyed our golf course. You may be wondering how exactly Golf Advisor chose the top courses with so many to choose from in the country, so let us tell you!

First and foremost, there were over 2,000 courses eligible to make the list (a course needed at least 15 reviews to be considered), and Baywood Greens beat out most of them to make it onto the list.  All eligible courses were given a score, 50% of which was generated using their overall rating, and 50% of which was generated using the average ratings for 6 subcategories. The subcategories include off-course amenities, value, pace of play, staff friendliness, course layout, and course conditions.

Golf Advisor is a “leading source” for ratings and reviews of golf courses around the country. Additionally, their expert staff provides articles covering subjects like golf courses and travel tips. Many people consult Golf Advisor for their expert opinion and latest golf course news, so it’s truly an honor to be ranked among the top courses by their reviewers!

At Baywood Greens, golfers are able to enjoy our 18-hole course with two distinctive nines: The Waterside and The Woodside. Surrounded by wooded areas, water, and stunning botanicals, each hole features breathtaking views. For players of all skill levels, the Baywood Greens Golf Course is a must see for any golf enthusiast.

Get Into the Spring of Things by Prepping for Golf Season

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on March 9th, 2017

With spring touching down early here in Sussex County, Delaware, you are probably itching to get back out onto our 18-hole championship Baywood Greens Golf Course! Before you even think about putting on your golf shoes, there are a few things you should do, and a few things to remember when getting back onto the course! Take a look below for some tips to prepare you for the golf season ahead:

Take a few visits to the driving range: If you haven’t already visited our driving range during the cold winter months, now is a great time to work on your swing. Our driving range is the perfect place for a refresher to regain your focus and perfect your form.

Get in some practice time on the course: The best way to get back into the game is to take some practice time for yourself. Go with a partner, or just by yourself and play a practice round. This will take some of the competitiveness and pressure off of you, so it will be easier to focus more on perfecting your skills for the season ahead. Book your tee time here!

Clean or replace your grips: If you forgot to do this at the end of last golf season, no worries! Cleaning the grips on your golf clubs is as easy as taking a damp towel with a bit of soap and wiping off the dirt and grime that can build up over seasons past. If your grips are way past repair, look into getting them replaced. 

Consider a new pair of golf shoes: Many experts recommend purchasing a new pair every 2 years or so. The reason for this is that any waterproof or protective coating will most likely have worn off by then if the shoes were worn regularly over that period of time. If you’re just not ready to part with the pair of shoes that you love, you can also replace the cleats on the bottom of your shoes.

Stretch it out: As many experienced golfers know, the sport requires utilizing muscles and parts of your body that aren’t used on a day to day basis, unless you keep up with some training in the off-season. If you have been out of the game for a while, there can be a bit of strain and soreness after your first round. Before you get out on the course, take some time to stretch your arms, legs, and torso.

Refresh your supplies: Every golfer knows that some unexpected things can happen on the golf course, and you always want to be prepared. Restock the pockets of your golf bag with things like an emergency kit, sunglasses, bandages, athletic tape, and whatever else you need on hand to ensure your golf game is at its best!

If you still have questions or need to purchase some new gear, stop by our Pro-Shop for a variety of products and merchandise from the top golf brands. For more information about our top-rated golf course, head on over to https://www.baywoodgreens.com/golf.
