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.
