On Wednesday 3rd October we assembled for our 2018 Autumn Meeting once again at The Berkshire Golf Club. We numbered 68 players, four down on the previous two occasions.
The weather, although overcast in the morning was favourably warm and dry, developing into a blue sky afternoon and fabulous autumn evening and sunset.
The courses, particularly the Red, was showing the effects of the long hot summer with patchy fairways; preferred lies were very much in operation. The greens however were running medium fast and true and in good condition.
As ever, the Berkshire hospitality was superb we were very well looked after in the clubhouse enjoying a superb lunch and a sunlit terrace.
The club surpassed itself in its adherence to the starting sheet and we were, for once, able to conclude prize giving and get away before dark!
Our Captain, Howard Cheetham, was magnificent in his munificence, supplying some hugely appreciated prizes.
