Happenings at the Resort...February 2016
Greetings from Port Ludlow -

Love is in the air............so many sweet stories about those that have fallen in love in Port Ludlow, have renewed that love through special occasions at The Fireside, through memorable events or long walks on the trails. This week we observed several rainbows that were deep in colors and "complete" - and that surely speaks to love.

Will you share a "love story" of yours with us? We would be delighted to share these - especially if they involve something that happened in Port Ludlow or as a result.

Speaking of "as a result" - we are offering a new package - the "Baby-Moon" - maybe it's just for you? This is for those that are expecting a child - BEFORE the child is born and sort of a "last hurrah" time for the expectant couple. This is a terrific and thoughtful gift from grandparents. Here are the details:  http://portludlowresort.com/inn/

Chef Dan is busy today - working with Edible Seattle on the Whiskey & Chowder event - see below for link if you have a desire to go - it is TONIGHT!

Thinking of dark chocolate and red wine, and hope to see you around Port Ludlow soon.

P.S. What is this and where is this? First correct guess wins an overnight stay at the Inn.  Hint:  another hike was involved when this was spotted....
Last month's photo was Tamanowas Rock in Chimacum. Congrats to the winner Scott at CedarRoot ( and new papa) - someone that knows our community AND can use a good night's rest!  He'll be enjoying an overnight soon.
 
Golf.
Have you seen the new tent at the golf course?  It is the Port Ludlow Golf Club Learning Center. The Learning Center isn't just a place to practice, but also where our PGA professionals can use the latest in golf technology to help you improve your golf game. 

Speaking of lessons...Port Ludlow Golf Club is excited to announce a new lesson program - Lunch and Lesson. The two hour program includes a one hour lesson with our of our PGA pros, lunch at Niblicks Cafe, and a post lesson critique. To schedule a lesson contact the Pro Shop at 360.437.0272.

The Resort is excited to announce that Darren Posey, PGA Head Pro, is the new coach of the Chimacum High School Golf team and the golf course is the Chimacum's team home course. Go Cowboys!

And make sure to book a tee time before it's too late to use one of the February golf specials.
Marina.
The annual Marina Valentine's sale is coming up on Friday, February 12th. Find a special gift for your Valentine (boater or non-boater alike). Enjoy complimentary coffee and cookies as you pick out your favorite items and receive a Plinko puck at the counter. Wherever the puck lands determines your discount - up to 50% off. 

A dozen red roses will be raffled at the end of the day. Now, tell me - who does NOT enjoy red roses?

Home.
January was an active month at Ludlow Cove Cottages. We welcomed the new homeowners of home site 25 to their beautiful Kingston cottage. 

So far, the Kingston (pictured above) is our best selling floor plan. If you haven't been out to the cottages for awhile, make sure to plan a trip soon...the remaining home sites won't last long. The model homes are open Thursday - Monday from 10am-3pm.
Groups & Events.
We are really excited to have a new member of the Sales team - Cody Griffith. Cody has over 14 years of experience in the hospitality industry - and recently moved to Port Ludlow from Austin, TX where she worked with Hyatt. Stop by and say hi to Cody as she settles into this new role. And if you really want to make her day, book some group business!

"This is the ideal location - far enough away to feel separate, but close enough to feel connected. I really enjoyed and appreciated the hospitality that was shown to us - we were a large group with many individual requests, which were granted with grace. Thank you!"
