ST NEOTS golfer Judith Parsons claimed the President's Salver for the best nett score (76) at the Veterans Championship held at The Links in Newmarket.
Saffrom Walden's Linda Kelsey lifted the Veterans Cup with a gross score of 84, while the senior veterans cup went to Walden's Greta Collins with a gross score of 91.
The competition was played in blustery and overcast conditions, and in the Silver Division Jeannie Leslie of the Gog Magog club secured first place ahead of St Neots' Vicki Kyle in second.
Girton's Coral Paulson took top spot in Bronze Division A with a nett 71 on countback from second placed Leslie Robinson of St Neots.
Meanwhile the Cambs & Hunts Ladies second team entertained a strong Bedfordshire side at St Neots.
In oppressive heat the home team found themselves under pressure in the morning foursomes with Jane McDuffie (Girton) and Sam Kingsbury (Abbotsley) the only winners and Mo Webster and Lesley Ince (Brampton) gaining a half to leave the team 2.5 -1.5 down.
Severe storms interrupted the afternoon singles, but Cambs and Hunts kept their concentration and wins for Jane McGuffog, Lesley Ince, Sam Kingsbury and Mo Webster in the top four matches put the team in a strong position.
However Bedfordshire staged a great recovery by winning the next three singles to level the scores, and it was left to home captain Grace Eastment to win the last singles match on the 17th hole to secure a 6.5-5.5 victory.
