Weekly news round-up
The Captains' Carvery is one of the final events of the year of office for the Captains of Thetford Golf Club. There is a 13-hole social competition followed by supper - with the Club Captain and the Ladies' Captain doing the honours by carving the meat.
This year Trevor Wignall and Gill Welham had also hosted a Dinner Dance, which was well supported, before organising a Mixed Greensomes competition which attracted 16 pairs. The first frost of the year meant that, unusually, temporary greens were in operation but the sun was shining and it was a glorious autumnal day.
Partners were drawn and clearly the temporary greens did not hinder the winners - Barry Tredgett & Thea Towell collected 34 points over just 13 holes! Pam Ellis & David Fossey were next with 32 and Jenny Rowe & Andrew Bloom were third with 28.
