Held at Sonning Golf Club
on 4th May 2022
On 4th May the Society held its Spring Meeting at Sonning GC. The Covid restrictions were behind us and we were able to welcome 75 ladies for the day. When arranging the event during Covid we had no idea if the meeting would be well attended. We were delighted to host an event just like ‘the good old days’ pre Covid and lockdowns.
Sonning GC’s hospitality was superb, the two-course lunch in the dining room was apparently delicious. The dining tables each had a floral centrepiece courtesy of Ann Maisey. The prize table heaved with trophies, flowers and chocolates. Babs Shanks, our 2021 Captain did prepare a lot of the potted plants and I realised too late in the afternoon that I had overlooked thanking Babs for her contributions. I had to grovel the next day with my thanks.
The weather was a bit on the chilly side but this did not deter the players who produced some fantastic scores. I didn’t have a chance to walk any of the course but I am told that it was in good condition.
The Meeting was a great success, in part because the promised rain held off until later in the afternoon but mainly because the organisers did a tremendous job and because everyone just wanted to have a great day out.
