How to Take the Bite Out of Cold Weather Skin Damage.
What can you do to stave off the damaging effects of harsh weather as we head into spring? A few simple tips and tricks can help . . . .
Here are some sure-fire ways from The Spa at Flying Horse to keep your skin and nails looking fresh, healthy, and youthful—year round!
Get a pedicure
It’ll help your skin and nails bear up winter’s worst weather. Yes, it may sound extravagant—especially when your feet feel less exposed to the elements than they do in summer—but cold temps and low humidity are a recipe for cracking skin and brittle nails. A professional pedicure can keep foot problems from getting a toehold.
Construction Update: The Lodge and Villas at Flying Horse.
Anyone who has built a home knows that a lot of work has to be done before you get to move in and get settled. Planning, execution, patience, changes, and the continuous anticipation go hand-in-hand. The same can be said about building the new Lodge and Villas at Flying Horse. And like most Flying Horse Club Members, residents of the community and business leaders in our area are all very eager to see these doors open to welcome the first guests.
The Flying Horse team has been working diligently on creating and executing the action plans set in motion to ensure the success of our new addition. “By successfully building upon the decade-long Flying Horse brand and reputation, our intentions are to be a destination property that will host a variety of corporate meetings and events requiring overnight accommodations. Given the onsite amenities, here at Flying Horse, The Lodge is an ideal property to host out of town families on vacation as well as friends and families of our residents and members during the holidays.” said Fredo Killing, Managing Director. With only 48 guest rooms available, the overall impact of guest traffic at The Club will be fairly minimal, as there is plenty of availability in the restaurant, by the pool, and in the fitness areas.
A few words of winter wisdom from the Golf staff...
The Flying Horse Golf Shop would like to remind everyone who is playing or using the range during the winter months to please check-in with the golf shop before they play or practice in order to receive daily news about the course. (Plus… your golf staff misses seeing you during the off season.)
As always, please contact the Golf staff with any questions you have about the course, golf shop or golf instruction. It's never to early (or too late) to improve your game.
