This is a small friendly group for people who are interested in golf and some other sports or activities. We organise events in Sunningdale, Ascot and nearby areas. Our most regular event is golf, followed by card games, snooker, and petanque & cycle rides (esp. in summer). Occasional other local activities are also organised. Women and men of any age (and varying abilities) are welcome at our events. Having fun doing sports or activities, whilst perhaps making some friends, are the main aims of the group. Membership of the group is currently free. Please ensure you have a photo of yourself when joining so that we can recognise you!
More details on our activities are given below:
• Golf - organised most weekends (in Sunningdale, Ascot and at several other nearby courses) - usually over 18 holes (but sometimes over 9). Events organised at Courses* to suit experienced and occasionally more novice players. Cost usually £18 to £30 max (less for 9 holes). The area has some attractive and quite challenging golf courses.
• Card games evenings - play or learn a variety of traditional card games (usually every 4 weeks). Games played include whist, rummy, black maria, switch (and just occasionally poker or bridge). Some experience of card games useful, but no experience of the particular card games played required.
• Other sports or activities - Snooker, petanque, cycle rides, occasional other sports events (like table tennis), visits to see local plays (& perhaps walks) are all also organised a few times a year at least.
Team sports are not organised.
There are a roughly equal number of men and women in the group, and members are of various ages (although the most active are probably all aged 35+).
We hope to see you soon!
