Thetford Golf Club



The Club's Vision Statement is: β€˜To be the first club of choice for all golfers within the area; to be a required destination for all golfers in East Anglia; and to be on the Must Play list of every golfer.’ We sincerely hope to live up to the expectations of every golfer who tees it up on the 1st tee and we are confident it will be a round to remember. As the course is situated on a Site of Special Scientific Interest we are well aware of our ecological responsibilities and take pride in meeting the requirements of our Higher Level Stewardship agreement. While tees and greens are maintained to the highest standards this does mean that the fairways are natural. So even if they are not green in colour, you can rest assured that we are green in our approach as custodians to a unique environment. Come along and see it for yourself!


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 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. 

We welcome visitors and encourage you all to take the chance to play a classic James Braid layout. The challenging tree-lined course has an abundance of scented gorse, broom and heather to greet those who venture too far from the fairway. Individuals, groups, visitors, golf societies and corporate clients will all discover a genuinely warm welcome, excellent golf facilities and fine hospitality.

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.


We have a vastly experienced team of greenkeepers who are dedicated to making the experience of playing golf at Thetford Golf Club both memorable and pleasurable for members, their guests and our visitors alike. Our administration staff welcome all inquiries and will make it easy to plan your visit. We pride ourselves on providing a friendly and hospitable service of the highest quality, both on the Course and in the Clubhouse. We can provide whatever catering you may require, whether as a society or group or as a four-ball or individuals. We also have a first class professional shop with expert instruction available, offering all that you need to improve your game.
