What we're about

Hi! We are a friendly group for people who are interested in golf (especially), and also table tennis, cycling, snooker, and a few other sports (or activities). Golf events are generally held in east Berkshire or north west Surrey, whilst other activities are mostly held in Ascot, Sunningdale or Windlesham.

Women and men of any age are welcome at all our events. Having fun doing sports or activities, whilst perhaps making some friends are the main aims of the group. Please ensure you have a photo of yourself when joining so that we can recognise you and welcome you when attending events (note: photos are only visible to members). Hope to see you soon!

The usual weekly schedule is a golf event at the weekend and up to one other activity from the list below (which could be on any day of the week). Note: Indoor events are restricted at times at the moment.

More details:

  • Golf - organised most weekends (in Sunningdale, Ascot, or at one of several other nearby courses mainly in east Berkshire and north west Surrey) - usually over 18 holes (but at least once a month over nine). Further details lower down on this page.
  • Table tennis - up to a few times a month - for players of varied standards, but not usually beginners - held at Charters leisure centre, Sunningdale
  • Snooker or Pool (at Lavender park, Ascot - during the week or at the weekend).
  • Cycle rides (leisurely and mostly between April and September when they take place at least once a month) in the Windlesham area or Windsor great park.
  • Badminton (mostly for doubles players below league standard, but not usually beginners), trips to watch sports, games evenings, petanque, and card games (or poker) evenings MAY also be organised. So please say on your profile which of our regular and occasional activities you are interested in!

There are a roughly equal number of men and women in the group, and members are of various ages from 20's to over 60 (although the most active are ~35 plus).
Temporary local residents or visitors to the area from other parts or the country or from overseas are welcome to join and take part in activities whilst they are in the area.
*If the group is 'full' there may be a delay in accepting you in to the group (but this will be done as soon as possible).
**If you are interested in organising a certain activity please contact Dave.

**: Golf details: Events are organised at Courses* to suit experienced, improver, and sometimes novice players. Cost usually £20 to £32 (for 18 holes). The area has some attractive and quite challenging golf courses. Novice golfers are recommended to first come to golf at Lavender park, Blackwater Valley or Billingbear. The golf courses we visit often or sometimes are Sunningdale Heath, Billingbear, Chobham, Downshire, Lavender Park, Pine Ridge, Sand Martins, Sherfield Oaks and Hennerton. Other courses that we visit occasionally include Datchet, Blackwater Valley, Theale and Royal Ascot. We may also visit Abbey Moor and/or Hoebridge golf courses for the first time in 2022.

Notes:
*: There is a SMALL annual membership charge for active group members, but there is no charge for your first event with the group (if done in the first two years of membership).
**: To keep the membership list up to date (and possibly to save money on meetup fees) a few inactive members who have not paid the annual membership fee may be removed from February 2022 as follows:
a) members who have not looked at our meetup site in their first year of membership since the day they joined, or
b) members who have not done any events in their first two years of membership (or not looked at our site for at least a year and never done any events), or
c) any*** member who has not done any events in their last two years of membership and/or not looked at our meetup site for at least two years.
***All can re-join again (possibly on payment of the membership fee).
***Members who have previously done 10 events (even if currently inactive) will not be removed in 2022.
