Thetford Golf Club


Our Open events are very popular and we have regular participants who come back year after year. We also have first-time visitors - and most are delighted by the chance to play one of the best courses in the region at a bargain price - and including a meal and the chance to win prizes as well! The 2019 dates are now confirmed and can be seen by clicking here. There is something for everybody - Men's Spring and Festive Opens to start and finish the golfing season, two Ladies' Opens, a Mixed Open, two Men's Seniors events and our Captain's Charity Day. And there is even a Left-Handers' Championship as well. Don't miss out - the competitions are often sell-outs and you need to book early to be sure of a place. Go to Visitors/Open events to book your place.


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 half-an-hour 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 is 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.

Our Open Competitions are always popular and give you the chance to play a great golf course with a reasonable .


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.

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.
