Colin Gilbert won Royston Golf Club's Captain's Prize, ahead of 175 other challengers.
Gilbert's score of 43 stableford points was just enough to see him win on countback from one of his regular playing partners, Rod Burke, who had held the lead for several hours.
Pete Dean was third on 41 points, with the countback rule again being used to determine fourth and fifth place, Jim Hopkins pipping Keith Wood.
Junior captain Tom Smith won the junior prize, while James Smith took the runners-up spot. County player Jenny McGuigan won the ladies' prize with an excellent score of 36 points from her three handicap.
Stuart Phillips equalled the course record of 63 in the Thursday Medal, despite failing to make a birdie on any of the par fives. But he had the consolation of seeing his handicap reduced from scratch to plus one.
Junior Chris Trimble finished second with a gross 73, nett 69.
The Saturday Medal was won by 14-handicapper Ben Bennett with a nett 63, Oli Bance second (69-3=66) ahead of Jonathan Osler (70-4=66).
Emma Logan celebrated her first year of membership by winning the Ladies Medal Winners final with a superb nett 68, five shots ahead of runner-up Libby Toby.
The youngster's handicap has tumbled from 22 to 15 and she has been tipped to be the club's Lady Golfer of the Year.
