"Because of their age, all members of the team will be eligible for next year's event.
"Increasing numbers of potentially gifted young golfers are now playing at Market Rasen, and we are hopeful of more success in the future."
Rasen's youngsters lost a thrilling Junior County Golf Club final match to Spalding, at Belton Park, Grantham.
Liam Beardsley and Jamie Codd triumphed 5 and 3 in their match, but Luke Parkinson and Kieran Baker lost 5 and 4.
The deciding match, involving Harry Crowther and Jacob Morley, finished level – so the battle went to a play-off.
The first hole at Belton is a stroke index three, and this meant one of Spalding's players received a shot. And he holed in four shots (net three) to win the hole, meaning Spalding were crowned champions.
Rasen's juniors also took part in the England Junior Club finals at Woodhall Spa in late August. Representing Lincolnshire were three Rasen players – Liam Beardsley (6), William Sutton (9) and Luke Parkinson (11).
Beardsley navigated the Bracken Course in level par in the first of the two rounds.
After 36 holes, Rasen's trio totalled 151 Stableford points, finishing just four behind winners Bridgenorth, from Shropshire, and joint sixth out of the 31 teams in the field.
Club captain Richard Holmes said: "Everybody at Market Rasen Golf club is immensely proud of their achievements this past year."
