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

Whew - we've made it past the shortest day of the year - and suddenly, those sunny days feel crisp and provide hints of spring!

We have so much to share as you make plans for these coming days. Chef Dan is participating in the inaugural Edible Seattle event - Whiskey & Chowder.

And closer to home we have a few other suggestions:
  1. Long weekends in a cozy space....
  2. Wednesday nights - we help you over the hump - in January that means Burgers, February it is BBQ and March it is Mac 'n Cheese.
  3. Community activity nights - Trivia and Card Games and in March we have our own version of "the Throwdown" with Chef Dan competing with local home Chef, Deanne. Save the Date - March 22. (We'll be coloring again in April - big hit and back by popular demand - that will be on 4/26.) 
  4. The winemaker dinner with DeLille is nearly sold out - if you've been putting it off, please book now so you won't be disappointed.
I've discovered some new hikes of late - and here's a photo from a recent one. The first one that guesses where this is wins an overnight stay at the Inn!
Hope to see you around the Resort soon.

P.S. Last month's photo was of hats at the Pro Shop. Congrats to the winner Debi Bozanich who won a gift card to use at the Golf Course/Niblicks Café. 
Golf.
Drive in the New Year at Port Ludlow Golf Club. Buy a select driver and receive a FREE round.

The course's Lunch & Lesson program is about to launch and whether you're a seasoned golfer or a beginner this is great way to get tips and tricks from the Port Ludlow Golf Club PGA pros. Lunch & Lesson includes a one hour golf lesson and lunch at Niblicks Café. For more information contact the Pro Shop at 360.437.0272. (Sounds like a good idea - sign me up!)

Planning a tournament or event? Port Ludlow Golf Club is an ideal location for your next social gathering. View our Tournament Packet for more information or contact Darren Posey, PGA Head Professional at 360.437.0272 or dposey@portludlowresort.com.
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). Pick out your favorite items and receive a Plinko puck at the counter. Wherever the puck lands determines your discount. A dozen red roses will be raffled at the end of the day. Now, tell me - who does NOT enjoy red roses?
Winter crabbing has been extended in the Port Ludlow area through February 28th. Happy crabbing!

For more information about the annual sale or winter crabbing contact the Marina at 360.437.0513.
Inn.
Do you enjoy playing TRIVIA? If so, please join us for the next Community Table/Activity Night. (Tuesday next week - and I understand some remarkable trivia hounds will be there...next stop JEOPARDY!)  Please call for reservations. 360-437-7412 (and bring your friends/neighbors and trivia buffs). Prizes for winners.

You know who loves a special night out at The Fireside? Yes, that's right - YOUR SWEETHEART. Friday and Saturday will be the daily dinner menu and a lobster special and THE DAY will be an eight course tasting menu/wine pairing. Call now for reservations - 360.437.7412.  

And stop in for one of our Wednesday Dinners - January is Burger Night and February is Regional BBQ.

Room offerings are noted in the sidebar of this newsletter. Something for everyone!
Home.
Twelve (that's right - a dozen!) homes are now accounted for in Ludlow Cove Cottages. A warm welcome to the newest residents who moved in at the beginning of the month.
