The 100 Club Extravaganza was held on Saturday. Since it was so close to American Independence Day, the Texas Scramble, open to teams of 4, had an American theme. The stars and stripes were raised to mark the shotgun start. The big winners of the day were the team of Jack Brooker, James Taggart, Dick Groves and Luc Brown with a score of 59.3 nett. In second place were Graeme Dodds, Andrew Bailey, Tony Nicholas and Dan Leno with 60.4, who also provided the pre-Brexit French Brie that was served at lunch. The best mixed team score was achieved by Chris Hemingway, Lily Taylor, Hamish Stubbs and Mike Leonardi with a respectable 62.1.

The ladies section has been very busy. Before all the wet weather, the ladies played for the Franklin Cup, a stableford competition for women with handicaps over 25. Ginny Richardson won it with 35 points. Sheila Attrill continued her winnings ways, coming in second with 33 points. Caroline Gard and Jan McLellan both scored 31 points, with Gard awarded third place on count back.
The playing conditions were a bit more difficult for the 10th EWGA medal, but Joan Stevenson came out on top on count back with a nett score of 79, just ahead of Sheila Attrill. Margaret Dean was third with 82 nett.
