Our major fund-raising day of the year is always a great day for members and visitors alike. It is a very long day with golfers playing from early in the morning right through to early evening and there are plenty of prizes at stake. As well as the main team prizes - it is a competition for teams of four, with the best two scores at each hole counting - there are also a number of individual prizes on every hole. We are always grateful for the support we receive from a number of our Gold Card Partners, who sponsor individual holes and provide prizes. There are lots of four-ball vouchers on offer for the charity auction - get a bid in and you could secure a great day out at a great golf course for a very reasonable price. There is also a raffle on the day and ALL proceeds go to the Captain's Charity. This year Mike Horley has chosen the East Anglian Air Ambulance, which is a fantastic charity which serves the whole East Region. We all hope we will never have to require their services but if we do we know from past experience how professional, competent and wonderful they are. To enter, go to Visitors/Open Competitions or go to the Diary on Saturday July 6 and enter online or download, fill-in and return an entry fee. It really is a case of the more the merrier - and it is all for a good cause. You will be made most welcome - and we're sure you will have a great day out. And you could take home a prize.
Thetford has long been regarded as one of the best winter courses in the region. The heathland course is free-draining and is often playable within minutes of even the heaviest downpour. Our policy is to play on main greens and main tees whenever possible and the course is only closed on average for five-or-so days per year. And you can wear light-coloured clothing without fearing the laundry bill!
It is a terrific challenge for golfers of all abilities. The long par-fours take some reaching in winter when there is not too much run but the par-fives offer the chance of gaining a stroke - as long as you are not too wayward. The four par-threes are crackers - and every now and then they blow up in your face for a surprising high score.
Try it for yourself. We welcome visitors and encourage you all to take the chance to play a classic James Braid layout.
If you wish to book a tee time, go to Visitors/Book a Tee Time. Societies are also most welcome - go to Visitors/Societies for details.
Founded in 1912, Thetford Golf Club is a classic James Braid designed heathland course and reputed to be one of the finest courses in East Anglia. Individuals, groups, visitors, golf societies and corporate clients will all discover a genuinely warm welcome, excellent golf facilities and fine hospitality.
Our challenging course is set in the magnificent Breckland Forest area of East Anglia. Thetford is covered in pine, oak and birch trees - there is an abundance of scented gorse, broom and heather that will greet those who venture too far from the fairways.

We can provide whatever catering you may require, whether as a society or group or as a four-ball or individuals.
