Cold Spring Harbor Country Club recently hosted its annual Member-Guest Tennis Social. Those in attendance gathered to enjoy some sun and play in the tennis tournament with their closest friends.
Laura Olsen, in her fifth year as a member of Cold Spring Country Club, had nothing but good things to say about the event. Ever since she joined the club, she participated in the member and guest tennis social. What makes her continue to return is the dedication from the Cold Spring CC staff and especially, the dedication from Tournament Director Renie Sokolowski.
“A lot of it is Renie … she really has a great enthusiasm,” said Olsen. “There are a lot of good friends here, I think it’s always top-notch (the courts, events) we just always know it will be an amazing banquet/luncheon. Cold Spring CC always goes over the top. We’ve made a lot of great friends since we’ve joined here.”
As noted by Olsen, Sokolowski’s enthusiasm was brought to light when she talked about the turnout of the day’s event. Running the member-guest social for 13 years in a row, she seems to enjoy it more each year.
“The turnout was amazing,” said Sokolowski. “It’s a full house, which I’m really happy about, and the tournament is being played at a nice level as well [the 3.0-4.0 Level]. Everyone is having a wonderful time. It’s about having your members feeling like they’re at home, and feeling like they are a part of a big community and a family as far as a country club is concerned.”
To end the day, a lunch was planned for the members and guests. With beautiful decorations and an endless selection of both food and drinks, the lunch was an ideal way to cap off a terrific day of friendship and tennis.
