Corporate Retreats

Printer-friendly version

Sherwood Golf & Country Club, as a retreat destination also transforms into a Corporate Learning Center, connecting people and their teams with new ways to communicate; bringing themselves and their teams to new levels of awareness. We offer excellent food and all of the amenities necessary to support the best possible outcome for your group with facilities built for group learning, leisure and fresh air.

A retreat is a withdrawal from the demands of daily life.  It is a shift of attention from ‘out there’ to ‘in here’.  It is a journey inward, which is enhanced through solitude, reflection, conversation and being surrounded by nature. We become a place where people get to examine the big questions, in a world where many corporate people use the words “burnt-out” and “stressed”.

Interested in what we can provide you?  We offer excellent food and all of the amenities necessary to support the best possible outcome for your group with facilities built for group learning, leisure and fresh air.  We offer a tranquil place to regain a sense of well-being.  Sherwood is different things to different people; our goal is to ensure that everyone leaves delighted having enjoyed a “positive experience”.  Sherwood fosters learning, creativity, growth and change by providing a private, safe environment.

Team Building
When teams get into difficulty, the problem always appears in the relationships.  A team of 10 has 100 relationships; a team of 20 has 400.  It is not surprising that some relationships are very open, honest, trusting, supportive and creative.  It is equally true that others have broken down.  This causes difficulty not only to the individual involved by increasing stress, anxiety and lowered productivity, but also to the greater culture of the team by causing mistrust.  Our goal over your stay is to provide you the environment and peaceful surroundings to enable your business to focus and work towards better team building from within your organization.
