Ted Strelec Announced as General Manager and Director of Golf at Wellington National Golf Club

Wellington, Fla. – Oct. 4, 2017 – Wellington National Golf Club (WNGC) is pleased to welcome Mr. Ted Strelec as General Manager and Director of Golf at Wellington’s premier golf and country club. Strelec will work closely with the club owners, employees and members to continually improve the golf program and daily operations at Wellington National. With nearly three decades of experience in the golf industry, Wellington National is excited to welcome Ted to the WNGC team.

“My goal at Wellington National is to combine my 27-years of experience in the private golf club industry with a lifelong passion for customer service to create a member experience second to none,” remarked Strelec. “The management team at Wellington National plans to create a world-class golf program that’s complemented with a variety of club amenities for the entire family.”

Prior to joining Wellington National, Strelec served as the Director of Golf at Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., a position he held since 2007. Bear Lakes Country Club gave him his start in golf nearly 30 years ago, hiring Strelec as a young high school graduate for the role of Outside Operations Assistant under the mentorship of Kevin Murphy, who is currently Head Golf Professional at the famed McArthur Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla.
Strelec returned to Bear Lakes Country Club in 1996 with the elevated title of Head Golf Professional. After serving that role for 10 years, Strelec was promoted to Director of Golf. Since that time, Strelec’s role at the 36-hole facility included creating and managing a robust event schedule with approximately 90 annual events. In 2009, the country club hosted the Final Stage of PGA TOUR Qualifying School, with Strelec at the helm as the host professional responsible for all aspects of operation.

“We are so thrilled Ted Strelec will now be associated with Wellington National,” said Doug Marty and Chip Smith, owners of WNGC. “His reputation for excellence as a golf professional and management leader speaks for itself and we have high hopes that he will be an invaluable asset to our club as it continues to develop.”

No stranger to South Florida, Strelec has lived in the region most of his life and has established a deep network of lifelong connections inside and outside of the golf community. Outside of his profession, he has served as the President of the Board for the Jupiter Horsemen’s Association.

About Kelita
·    Originally born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Kelita was an elite gymnast from the age of 10 to 20 years old.  She was top in her province (state) and competed internationally as a member of the Canadian National Team. With her sight set on qualifying in the Olympic Trials for Team Canada, she sustained a fall while training, ending her Olympic dream. 
·    She also grew up learning to ride horses from her mother, at the young age of three. She went on to play polo and train young horses. In turn, she taught her sons how to ride when they turned 3 years old. One of her fondest memories is teaching her sons how to play polo, and then playing together.  Along with a family friend, the four of us were often successful victors of weekend tournaments. 
·    Miguel Jr. and Santiago (Santi) are both professional polo players, turning pro at the ages of 14 and 11, respectively. They are considered to be two of the best young players in the USA, and compete internationally. 
·    After spending 30 great years in Santa Barbara and Indo, California, she brought her sons to Wellington, and stayed.
·    For years I used to practice my massage techniques. I decided to make it official, graduated with Honors from MCI Institute of Technology and Massage Therapy School, in West Palm Beach, FL in 2014.
·    Being an athlete all my life, I have experienced my share of chronic pain. After years of trying this and that, lots of research and being thirsty for new knowledge, I now specialize in chronic pain. It is very rewarding to see my clients feel better and function better after their first massage with me. I am very grateful to have the ability to make such a profound impact in peoples’ lives. I strive for excellence and finding a peaceful balance in everything I do. My passion for our equine athletes, my two sons, health and wellness, and the human brain inspire me every day to learn more, so that one day I will be the change in the world, that I want to see.

·      With guidance, especially when it comes to relaxing, learning breathing techniques, addressing chronic pain or a combination thereof, and the rewarding results speak a thousand words
·    The very nature of golf, like any other sport, is not immune from experiencing chronic pain of any degree. Chronic pain can be devastating to an amateur or end the career for a Pro
·    According to the National Center for Health Statistics (2006), approximately 76.2 million, one in every four Americans, have suffered from pain that lasts longer than 24 hours and millions more suffer from acute pain. Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability. Mar 29, 2013

Unique and Exclusive Therapeutic Massage that Melts Away Chronic Pain and Discomfort
·    The “Classic Massage” (Swedish) – Therapeutic massage with a softer touch in mind. Great for anyone who prefers a lighter touch, while still receiving all of the benefits of releasing discomfort within the body
·    The basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping) and friction (cross fiber)
·    Our heightened awareness of Chronic Pain has increased rapidly, prompting more and more people to seek relief through Therapeutic Massage
·    Deep Tissue and Trigger Point - Slower friction and deep-finger pressure on the area of the body that is experiencing chronic muscle tension and pain in places like neck, shoulders, lower back & hamstrings, hands, feet, for example
·    I adapt my pressure through my touch and often find areas that clients didn’t even realize hurt
·    Based on the principals of Reflexology, I work on the hands, feet , heels and ears with more of a gliding action combined along with a static squeeze action on the toes for example, linking the body systems to the body’s organs, stimulating a health response and restoring “flow”.
