As the new director of catering at the Wanderers Club in Wellington, Whitney Buchanan brings a creative blend of business savvy and professional acumen to all aspects of hospitality, special events and banquet operations.
Buchanan is responsible for spearheading prestigious special events, including weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, golf tournaments and charity fundraisers. She will also lead the charge in promoting the premier country club’s once private catering services and spaces to the public.
After graduating from East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C., with a degree in hospitality management, Buchanan relocated to South Florida, where she began her hospitality career at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, and later at the Binks Forest Golf Club in Wellington as its director of catering.
“We’re proud to welcome Whitney Buchanan to our team,” said Justin Thompson, general manager of the Wanderers Club. “Her expertise greatly enhances our ability to exceed expectations for guests who plan meetings and social events, as well as dine at the country club.”
Named after the winning team of the first United States Open Polo Championship, the Wanderers Club is a classic pairing of golf and polo. It is an exclusive golf club located in the heart of Wellington’s equestrian community. Only recently has the private club allowed nonmembers to host special events at its facility.
The Wanderers Club is located at 1900 Aero Club Drive in Wellington. For more information, call (561) 795-3501 or visit www.wanderersclubwellington.com.
