group’s participants range from 25 in the summer to
60 or more during the season
“I went from knowing nobody to knowing 50 to
60 people,” said Warren Sonne, a retired NYPD
detective. “It wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.
It’s the obvious way to develop a social life.’’
At a recent Monday night dinner at the club, it
was apparent the members really enjoy each other’s
company. Among the three tables there was lively
discussion and outbreaks of raucous laughter.
“They are really nice people,” said bartender Alex
Eric of the Monday Couples. “They care about the
club and the staff. They definitely know how to have
a good time.”
In the early years the group ate at a different
restaurant every Monday, but for the past two years
they have settled into a regimen of dinner each week
at the club. Outside adventures have included boat
trips, ball games, and weekend golf trips to Naples,
Orlando, Tampa and St. Augustine.
The group also devotes itself to raising money for
charities. Last year the Monday Couples at PGA
Country Club donated more than $6,500 to Mustard
Seed, Treasure Coast Food Bank, Boys and Girls
Lori Kim smoothes in a 5-footer on No. Seven at PGA Country Club while
Sharon Snyder and Anne Marwood wait their turn to putt out. At bottom,
members of the Monday Couples group dine together at the PGA Country
Club. Every week brings a new menu and new golf tales.
