2021 Summer Schedule

6/1/2021

Dear Members,

With our 2020-2021 season officially over, it is my pleasure to thank all of Windstar’s members for their unwavering support of the club, the employees and each other throughout the pandemic.  We accomplished our mission of keeping everyone safe while providing as much access as possible, and from March of 2020 through today our reported infections at Windstar were 6 employees, and 13 members. 

This was a uniquely challenging and unpredictable year for the club.  Many of our members were not able to return to Windstar due to travel restrictions.  Others stayed north until after receiving their vaccinations, only returning to Windstar in the spring to finish the season.  COVID necessitated that we hold most events outdoors, then Mother Nature delivered one of the coldest Naples winters on record.  Despite the adversities, both tennis and golf had record play, with an increase of almost 2,300 rounds of golf through April vs. 2020. 

Our Food & Beverage revenues were impacted since social events and a la carte were predominantly limited to outdoors, 50% occupancy, mask required, and private parties were cancelled for most of the year.  The hardest hit was Wellness, with class attendance rarely reaching 5 members.  On a positive note, Windstar on Wheels takeout program will be a permanent option based on its success, and we were very pleased to receive forgiveness of the PPP loan last month.  The PPP loan enabled us to retain our employees through all of 2020 despite the reduction in member use.

COVID UPDATE - Effective today masks are optional for members both outside and inside the clubhouse. Employees will continue to wear masks when in the building.  We have opened the Windstar Room for cards, have increased the allowed occupancy in the fitness classroom to 15.  As with dinner reservations and tee times, the online registration for both tennis and fitness is a permanent program.  We request that you continue to respect the safety of others and maintain social distancing, particularly in the fitness area.

Summer Schedule

As you are aware, the golf course closed on May 17 for our renovation of the tees and bunkers, and for the expansion of the practice facility.  You will receive regular progress reports from our Golf Superintendent, Chuck Eberle.

Without the Windstar golfers and reciprocal players, we anticipate extremely low dining demand this summer.  To partially offset the loss of revenue we are offering a limited schedule for dining at the club and have engaged many clubs in reciprocal dining and golf.  We encourage you to take advantage of these local golf and dining options. 

Turn Window – closed until October.

The managers will spend their part of the summer taking some well-earned time off, reconnecting with family and perhaps traveling after a year of quarantine.  We will spend most of the off season on strategic planning, developing budgets, arranging seasonal staffing, employee training, creating event and a la carte menus, and planning a calendar bursting with the exciting activities we have missed during the past year.  With great excitement and optimism, we are preparing for an excellent reopening in fall 2021 and countless outstanding member experiences throughout 2022 at Windstar on Naples Bay.  On behalf of the managers and staff, thank you for your support throughout the year, and have a wonderful summer whether you are here or away.

Kind regards,
Nancy Boros
