The 2021 Northern Meeting was held at Hollinwell (Notts Golf Club) after some attendees had the opportunity to play Abbeydale Golf Club in Sheffield where our Hon. Secretary is a member.

The Notts Golf Club (Hollinwell) is an amazing course that is ranked 37th in the UK & Ireland by Golf Monthly and is laid out in over 400 acres of land.

Sadly, before we manage to tee off we were 3 players short of our original number but 17 members of The Society headed out in warm conditions under a pure blue sky with little wind. The course was in wonderful condition having recently hosted Open Qualifying and at 6,619 yards from the Yellow Tees it is fair to say there were plenty of challenges for everyone. For some the halfway house was a chance to pause, purchase a cold drink and prepare themselves for the climbs that follow to the highest point in Nottinghamshire on the holes still to play.

A tasty meat pie followed by Hollinwell Tart sustained those present before the Hon. Secretary was forced to re-arrange groupings for the afternoon as a number of those present elected to play 9 holes rather than the full 18.

After so long away from Rugbeian Society Golfing fixtures it was wonderful to see so many for this event. It is hoped in 2022 that we may play Alwoodley one afternoon before an informal supper and then the following day we will once again visit Hollinwell where players will be able to pre-select 27 or 36 holes.
