The Total Clubhouse Experience at Baywood Greens

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on September 29th, 2017

Fall is a beautiful time at Baywood Greens, and there is no better place to show off our gorgeous community than our clubhouse. From the spacious lobby to the sprawling veranda, the Clubhouse is the perfect place to gather with friends or enjoy a delicious meal at our restaurant. If you’re looking for a post-summer pick me up, check out some of the ways you can take advantage of our clubhouse this fall season!

Fun with Friends

If you’re hosting guests this fall, the clubhouse is one of the first places you should bring them! Show them the gorgeous views from the veranda overlooking our exclusively public golf course, and take in the changing leaves and botanical gardens that Baywood Greens is known for. Our clubhouse also offers several places to sit and catch up with your friends. Soak up the last warm days on our veranda, or relax for a quiet afternoon in the library.

Happy Hour

Who says happy hour has to be limited to just one hour? Swing by our happy hours at the clubhouse from 3-6pm daily. Whether you’re just getting off the golf course and need to relax, or you’re getting the weekend started early, there’s something for everyone. Come by on Monday’s for $19 crabcake night, a local favorite, or ½ price entrees on Thursday. Our clubhouse is open to everyone, so the more the merrier!

Delicious Dining

Don’t feel like cooking or driving somewhere for a great meal? Baywood Greens is home to the amazing Clubhouse at Baywood, a SoDel Concepts restaurant. Executive chef Tom Deptula, a local product from Delaware, creates simple coastal cuisine that highlights the best local ingredients every season. With a different menu for each season, you’ll experience the best that Baywood Greens has to offer year round! Right now, we love the lobster mac and cheese for lunch and the maple & fig glazed duck breast for dinner. Make a reservation now to find your new favorite dish!

Life of the Party

We may be known for our amazing golf course and yummy food at the restaurant, but we are also one of the premier event facilities in Sussex County. Whether you’re looking at venues for your daughter’s wedding, hosting the company holiday party, or want to celebrate your wedding anniversary in style, the Clubhouse at Baywood is the perfect venue.  Our event spaces include the Banquet Room, the Veranda, the Library, and the Tent on the Greens. Leave the planning to us and you’ll enjoy a stress-free celebration.

Give the Gift of Baywood

You don’t need an excuse to come back to the clubhouse, but a gift card is one way to ensure that you or your friends will be back! Gift cards to our restaurant or even a gift card to our golf pro shop are both perfect for someone who loves Baywood Greens just as much as you do!

Ways to Bring Fall Inside Your Home at Baywood Greens

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on September 25th, 2017

Nothing says fall like the crisp crunch of leaves on the sidewalk, or getting out the blankets for the first chilly night. While we’ve been sad to see the fun summer season come to an end, there are plenty of exciting things about fall at Baywood Greens! The first step: bringing fall inside your home! Whether you’re looking to go all-out with the fall décor or just want some subtle highlights inspired by coastal Delaware in the fall, there are many different ways to add some seasonal style to your home. Check out some of our favorite ideas below.

Autumn Colors

One of the best parts of fall is seeing the beautiful colors of the changing leaves. You can bring those colors in your home without the mess of all the leaves! If you want to accent your spacious Baywood Greens living room, add a bright red or gold pillow to your couch. Use burnt orange or dark green hand towels in the kitchen or bathrooms for extra pops of color around your new home. Get all of your home décor needs at the outlets, just a short drive from Baywood Greens (and without the sales tax!).

Sense of Smell

Gone is the humidity and here to stay are crisp nights, local apple picking, and yummy fall treats. While we wish we could be at one of our local farmer’s markets all the time, recreate the smell of freshly picked apples with apple-scented candles. If you have guests coming to stay this fall season for a golf weekend, freshen up their rooms with bowls of dried potpourri and cinnamon.

All Pumpkin Everything

Pumpkins just aren’t for Halloween anymore! From décor to food, and even in your coffee, pumpkin is everywhere during the fall. If you’re feeling festive and want to get into the fall spirit, place small baby pumpkins throughout your home, such as a centerpiece for your table or on the mantle. If you’re a pumpkin spice lover, stock up on pumpkin spice coffee, baked goods, and anything else while you can still get it in stores.

Texture

From the smooth exterior of pumpkins to the crackle of hay on a hay ride, texture is everywhere you look during fall. One of the biggest trends this fall, according to Country Living, is the use of velvet. While we’re not saying go all Gone With the Wind with floor-length velvet drapes, dip your toe in the velvet pool with a throw pillow or blanket. Use woven baskets to keep your soft blankets for cozy evenings to highlight the contrasting textures.

Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year at Baywood Greens here in Sussex County! To learn more about our community, visit us online.
