Another excellent lunch with the Apex Jazz Band as the main attraction, no detraction from the Lady Captain, Rosie Wilson, intended.
This is now a twice yearly event and is one of the most popular on the club’s social programme. David Alexander’s buffet left nothing to complain about. Starter, vegetable soup, followed by a carvery of beef, ham (absolute perfection), turkey and stuffing; with vegetables, roast and mashed potatoes and the usual accompaniments. For those who could manage it this was followed by David’s unsurpassable apple crumble (with custard), berry pavlova,chocolate gateau and something else that I cannot recall. The only complaint I heard was that the beef was a bit gristly. Mine was OK, but one cannot expect to feed over a hundred golf club members and guests and escape without a grouse or two!
We called it an afternoon at about 4.45, the band having played their final number around four, but there were still plenty of people left enjoying the company.
Altogether another success for John Greer and the entertainment committee.
