Hinckley's annual winter pro-am proved a big success despite the cold conditions.
It attracted professionals and amateurs from a wide area, but it was Simon Lilly (Wellingborough) who shot two-under-par 69 to win the pro-medal.
Craig Shave (Whetstone) was runner-up on one-under 70, hitting four birdies on what he described as "a tough day for golf, with the course playing long."
Former host club assistant pro Jason Powell, who is now at Biggleswade, led the winning team on nine-under 133.
Chris Bowman carded 67 net to win a medal tournament at Lutterworth. Martyn Davies topped Division One on 69, and Chris Keogh led Division Two, also on 69.
Philip Meakin was around in 71 to take the scratch award.
