THE Fenland Golf Society held its annual cup, Christmas dinner and awards night at the Lakeside Lodge Golf Club and there was the traditional large turn-out by members.
The day was won by the youngest member of the society, Jake Edgley, who shot a fine 72, one shot ahead of Martin Storey who was left to rue a four putt on the 11th.
Martin Gowler was runner-up in the high handicappers cup behind the youthful Edgley. Grant Osbourn won the longest drive, just edging out Richard Hickford by 35 yards.
A superb meal at the Cross Keys Hotel in Chatteris was followed by a speech from Bob Jinks, the outgoing president who has held the role for the past two years.
Jinks passed on the presidency to Mick Curry who accepted graciously and thanked him for his dedication to the society over the past years.
James MacTavish, the outgoing captain, handed over the captaincy to Trevor Singleton.
