I joined DWCC in 1985 and have enjoyed the many amenities offered to it’s members ever since! The golf course is one of the best on the southern east coast, the tennis/pickleball facility is enjoyed by many, the programs offered at the swimming pool are top notch and the dining choices are varied and always enjoyable and the service and waitstaff are the best. Duck Woods Country Club is my “go to” place on the OBX!

We found the club, members and staff, to be characterized by two words: warm and inviting. We were welcomed as our interests led, and we observed the same inclusive attitude in areas beyond our specific interests. But in addition to warm and inviting, we found Duck Woods to be professionally and thoughtfully managed. Professional in quality, thoughtful to the wants and interests of its members.

I think what best describes DWCC, aside from the great food, bright and friendly atmosphere, and amazing golf & tennis facilities, is the generous and cheerful staff. I cannot ever remember walking in the door, that gracious greetings, hugs and beaming smiles weren’t there to welcome us in. In many respects, DWCC has become a part of our family, and every time we are there, it’s like coming home.

The golf course is a well-conditioned Ellis Maples designed layout… The racket sports facility is top notch and pickle ball is an important component of that amenity with expansion on the horizon. The pool is a great place for the kids and adults. The fitness room is a plus as are the locker rooms and shower facilities. The dining options are excellent at a good value. BUT most of all, the staff, at every level, strive to make you feel part of a welcomed family as will the members themselves.

Duck Woods Racquet Sports Video Tip 95: How to Watch Tennis
When watching the professionals play tennis on TV, do not solely focus on the ball as if you're playing pinball. Instead, pick one player to focus on each point and focus on their shot selection, where they recover to based on the type of shot they've hit, and how they split-step exactly when their opponent is hitting and move immediately to the incoming ball. Do not just watch highlights as flashy shots, such as tweeners and drop shots, seldomly occur throughout a match. Instead, watch the match in its entirety. Focus on the players' shot selection based on the scoreline. You'll find that the pros generally stick to high-percentage tactics, hitting high over the middle of the net with cross courts shots, which allows them the most possible margin of error and minimizes the amount they must recover. This week is an optimal time to practice watching tennis the correct way, given the inclement weather and the TV coverage of the Australian Open. Let me know how this works for you!

Great tips! Keep it up

Great advice!!

Love your shirt!❤️

Using a weighted club to reinforce proper body movements can be very beneficial. If you do not have a weighted club, you can use a small dumbbell, or even hold two to three clubs at once.

Get in a solid setup position, make a back swing but at a nice and slow pace. Once the back swing is complete, use your lead leg and put pressure back into that leg while bringing the club down into last parallel. Feel your lead quad and your core, and notice how engaged they are.

Now, push off your lead leg up and around with your core rotating up and around. Your hands and arms stay in front of your sternum the entire time.

Do this 5-10 minutes a day, and enjoy your new speed!

Duck Woods Racquet Sports Tip 94: Service Warm-Up Routine - Part 2
After taking your first few warm-up serves with your feet directly together, concentrating on your ball toss and balance, the next step in the service routine is to hit a few serves with your normal service motion, landing inside of the baseline on your front foot, with your back foot kicked back to balance you and count to 3 slowly, while remaining balanced. After a few serves like this, it's time to begin your full service motion and after landing balanced, spring forward as if you were serve and volleying or hop backwards right away as if you were getting ready to hit a groundstroke. Try this out the next time you perform your service warm-up routine and let me know how it works for you!

Thanks for braving the swift winds to bring us this tip, Kevin!

Good tip, Kevin. Now if I could only bend my knees, I’d be half dangerous on the court.
