Cheers Singles Group

Chris Harrington, Leanne Weber, and Wende Bunting await their tee-off at SunBird Golf Course. Wende went on to have a birdie!

Cheers is a social club open to members from Sun Lakes, Springfield, SunBird, and Solera communities. Our current 213 members invite you to become a part of the Cheers family, whether you are a year-round or a seasonal resident. The club offers many activities and programs, including social time, wine tasting, dining out, book club, games, golfing, and group travel opportunities.

With your $20 annual dues you will be provided access to the members-only website and calendar of activities. The Cheers weekly social meets on Thursday at Sun Lakes Oakwood Country Club from 4 to 5:30 p.m. The meeting is a forum for meeting new friends, visiting with current ones, and sharing club announcements and upcoming activities. Visitors and potential new members are welcome, without obligation to join. Weekly meetings are followed with opportunity for group dining at a local restaurant.

Below are some of our group activities:

Golf: The rounds have been wonderful, as has the turnout of players. We are usually 10 or more players and have been to four different courses in the past five weeks.

Birdies have been plentiful from Chris Harrington, Stan Fark, Sandi Steker, and Wende Bunting. On top of the good golf, the weather has been very cooperative. As the temps rise, we have been getting earlier tee times to make sure we are all enjoying the game. Please come join us!

This activity is a Cheers members-only activity. Please contact Keith Mackenzie at 248-766-9520 or via email at [email protected] for additional information.

Cheers Birthday Celebration: We celebrate members’ birthdays quarterly with dinner, a cash bar, entertainment, and a raffle for prizes. The next celebration of July through December birthdays will be in October at the Cottonwood clubhouse. To facilitate clubhouse reservations, advance registration with a $20 fee is preferred. Admission at the door will be $25. All Cheers members are welcome to participate, not just those celebrating a birthday.

Hand and Foot: Members gather at Oakwood Poolside for Hand and Foot card game the first and third Wednesday and the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m., so there is opportunity every week to enjoy the camaraderie of friendly competition. To better coordinate game tables of four, it is appreciated if you would RSVP attendance to Mary Ann Fazio at 480-277-5699. If you don’t know how to play or haven’t played in a while, Mary Ann Fazio and Ramon Rubio, our co-hosts, are happy to teach you.
