The Daniel Markillie Memorial Day at Gedney Hill raised £3,700 for charity. Overall winner was Andy Brereton with 45 points. Ladies winner was Roz Upton (39pts). Pictured are organisers Nick and Kim Markillie.

A team from Gedney Hill comprising Colin Rust, Jacqui Rust, Jim Starbuck and Lynn Exley came third with 80 points in the regional round of the England Golf Team Championship held at Lingdale Golf Club, Leicestershire.

That qualified them entry to the Grand Final to be held at Frilford Heath Golf Club, Oxfordshire on Monday 8 August 2016.

A Nene Park junior team of Lucas Bicker, Dan Clark and Kallon Rawlins won the 2015 CAGU Junior Champion Club Tournament with a score of 77 points and Clark also came second with 44 points in the individual competition.
