Thank you and everyone for yet another lovely Sunday Lunch. We really enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent as always. It was my brother’s first visit to the Club and he was most impressed.

Thanks again!

Health Walkers Social Events Group

Dear Natalie,

I am writing on behalf of the Health Walkers Social Events group to thank you for the superb dinner-dance that we all enjoyed at Sonning Golf Club on 19th December.

Everyone has commented on how delicious the food was and the tables were most attractively displayed. The friendly service was quick and efficient and the efforts your team made on our behalf were most appreciated. It certainly added to the success of the evening.

Once again this proved to be the high-light in our social calendar and we look forward to seeing you again at the next dinner-dance.

Our thanks to you and your team and we hope you had a Happy Christmas and wish you a successful New Year.

Yours sincerely,


Hazlemere Golf Club

Can I extend my appreciation to your staff and your course.  10 out 10 all round.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day out and some of the pictures I took speak for themselves.

I’m visiting Woburn this week and can only hope their fairways match up to yours.

Would recommend your club to anyone

Charity Dinner Dance

Afternoon Natalie,

Just a quick mail to say thank you for all your efforts and extra attention to the little details for our dinner dance yesterday.

Please also pass on our thanks to the staff who were brilliant and the chef and team for the food. Everyone was commenting on how excellent the food was. There were quite a few people who have never attended the golf course before who were really impressed – we sold them Sunday lunches as a fab time to come too!

Many thanks again,


Birthday Lunch

Hi Natalie

Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your  help in arranging my Mums 90th birthday lunch on Saturday.  Everything went according to plan and everyone had a wonderful time and commented on the superb food that was served. It really could have not gone any better.

We were looked after by Amanda on the day and I have to say she did an amazing job.  Professional, friendly and discreet, the perfect person to guide us through the day. All the staff involved in the lunch were lovely and I will have no hesitation in recommending Sonning Golf Course as a perfect venue!

Many thanks again for your suggestions and guidance when organising this occasion.  It really was a brilliant day and one that will live long in our memories.

Best regards

I hope this is the correct email address to contact regarding a dinner I attended last night.

I just want to contact you to let you know the food was absolutely lovely, the wait staff and bar staff were all friendly, helpful and worked amazingly to make it a great night and the DJ was excellent.

We had a large table of 18 in the conservatory under the name Fuller, and we all could not fault the night we had.

Working in the hospitality industry myself I know how much hard work goes into this type of event and how busy this time of year is.

Please pass on a very big thankyou and a well done to everyone involved and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Celebration Party

Hi Zoe


I thought I would feedback to you on Saturday evening. It was a great success and everyone really did enjoy themselves. I popped in yesterday afternoon to check if anything had been left behind and someone left a raffle prize. I asked the gentleman I spoke to, to pass on our thanks to you and Amanda who, I must say did a fantastic job of looking after us all and made sure we were looked after throughout the evening.  


There were some very positive comments from those who attended regarding how well the evening went and how much they enjoyed the food.


I am sure you will be hearing from us again regarding another Dinner Dance.


Overall it was a great night enjoyed by all,


Many thanks to you all,


Hi Andy,

Probus Lunch July 2017

Dear Zoe & Amanda,

Wow! What an excellent lunch.

The cod was cooked to perfection and the dill sauce was lovely and creamy. Add to this the potatoes and the vegetables – it made a great meal.

But then, just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, out came the lemon posset. As you know we were joined for today’s lunch by our wives – on my table the guys were given strict instructions that if lemon posset is served again, the dessert was to be brought home (uneaten) for our respective wives to enjoy!

Seriously, it really was a lovely meal and (as always) the service was excellent. So, thanks to all those staff who made today really special.

See you next month.

Kind regards

Wedding April 2017

” We held our surprise wedding at SGC, it took just 9 weeks to plan and it was a total secret to the 27 guests who thought they were coming to a 60th Birthday party. With the help of Zoe and Amanda the event was exceptional and seamless, totally without hitch, and kept a surprise until the day. Zoe was our initial contact who dealt with all our requests very efficiently, especially around my challenges of the secret not getting out, whilst complying with the the law around wedding ceremonies. Amanda was there on the day and coordinated everything, she was exceptional and worked everything with perfection.  Thank you Zoe and Amanda.

The food was of a very high standard, hot, timed perfectly and the shortbread desert was once again exceptional, the roast potatoes delicious. The service was also very very good, timed well , thank  you to the Chef (who also took the time to speak with us on a taster evening). The service by the kitchen staff was made even more special due to the professional manner in which they  served us all, but especially due to the lovely friendly, smiley manner they presented, with Amanda and others checking with Dean and I all the time that things  were ok. Amanda was discretely around all the time over seeing things. Thank you to all the kitchen/waiter staff.

Our guests arrived to be greeted by very friendly bar staff who dealt with complimentary and bar paying requests, until our surprise arrival and announcement that we were getting married. The secret was kept safe until that time by all SGC staff, thank you.

A big thank you also to all back room staff, you all made our day a wonderful day.

Finally, again thank you ALL for making our surprise wedding day the most intimate, tasteful, magical day we could have asked for,  it was everything we wanted and planned for and perfect in every way, especially because the  surprise was kept by all.”   Jayne and Dean

Birthday Lunch February 2017

Dear Zoe

Felicity and I thoroughly enjoyed my birthday lunch yesterday.

Please send an extra well done memo to the chef and kitchen staff. The compliments on the food and the cake were many, spontaneous and genuine.

An air of calm efficiency pervaded amongst the dining room staff. Ably marshalled by Andy, Agga and the tall slim manager (name eludes me with apologies), we greatly appreciated the speed at which each table was completely served with each course. I have thanked them in person as they all well deserved their gratuity.

An extra thank to you for quickly and efficiently responding to our our concerns and queries. The bar tab was not needed.

Kind regards, Chris and Felicity

70th Sunday Birthday Lunch January 2017

Dear Zoe

We had a family lunch in The Conservatory last Sunday (29th Jan) for my husband’s 70th birthday. I just want to say we had a lovely time and it all went very smoothly. We would like to thank you and the staff for making it so enjoyable. The food was excellent and the chef was very helpful sorting out food for the two vegetarian children. All the staff were very helpful and not at all intrusive. We would be very grateful if you would pass on our thanks to everyone involved.

Again very many thanks indeed. Kind regards Linda Hawley
