Residents have exclusive access to the community clubhouse with pool, fitness facility, billiards and more.

January 2014 saw many states set new record-low temperatures, including Illinois, Indiana and Missouri. As Mother Nature blankets large portions of the country with an arctic blast of cold weather and layers of snow, the residents of Wilcox Communities have remained active. While the homeowners may certainly be tempted to stay cocooned in their cozy ranch villas, many prefer to get out and take advantage of the activities available in their exclusive neighborhood clubhouse as well as the special winter events happening locally.

The Wilcox Communities locating through the Midwest and Southeast each feature a residential clubhouse, open to all residents. The community clubhouse is the central hub of each Wilcox Community. Because residents live a maintenance-free lifestyle that includes no worries or hassles about snow removal, it leaves more time to enjoy the amenities of the clubhouse.

The luxurious community clubhouse found within each Wilcox Community features a cozy fireplace and comfortable seating area perfect for relaxing with a good book and cup of tea. It also features a friendly open floor plan, cathedral ceilings and expansive windows that provide natural sunlight year-round. Multiple seating areas include table and chair combos ideal for card games or sharing a meal with a neighbor. The clubhouse's fully equipped kitchen can be reserved for private use or shared by neighbors for casual gatherings and exclusive community events such as the annual December Holiday Dinner.

Regular clubhouse activities might include:

  • Sunday Night Football viewing parties on the clubhouse big screen television
  • "Dancing with the Stars" viewing parties
  • Tuesday Night/Ladies Night special events
  • Coffee and Conversation on Saturday mornings
  • Weekly book club meetings
  • Weekly board game nights
  • Card club gatherings
  • Monthly brunch pot luck meal for all residents

The proximity of the neighborhood clubhouse makes it easy for Wilcox Community members to get out even during the heart of winter and visit with neighbors, participate in a planned activity or even get in a workout in the fitness center, located within the clubhouse. The attached fitness center offers a variety of equipment for a workout that can warm up the body on the coldest days without having to worry about braving the bitter temperatures or navigating through snow-packed roads to get to a gym miles away.

Although clubhouse activities keep residents busy, Wilcox Communities are also located within cities that also offer numerous events, festivals and fun things to do.
