Over 80 members of Tydd St Giles Golf Club turned out in the autumn sunshine to remember one of their own.
There were 85 players who took part in the John Gamble memorial members open competition, which was an individual stableford event.
Frank Howard won overall with 46 points, while Ann Fiford was the first lady with a total of 35 points.
Donations were also made to Multiple Sclerosis Society UK and Diabetes UK and John’s daughter Katie presented the prizes.
A club spokesperson said: “John’s wife Jill was very happy to see a great turnout.
“Many members took up John’s mantle and raised a pint of John Smith’s in a straight glass.
“Jill was also very pleased to receive £200 which was donated from the halfway house which supplied drinks and excellent homemade cake.”
