The John Fison Cup is one of Thetford Golf Club's oldest trophies - it was presented in 1921 - and this year's winner is Doug Vines.
He came in with an outstanding round of 87-20-67 to beat one-handicap Dan Traher and six-handicap Josh Dashwood by two strokes.
Birdies at the 10th and 11th holes were the highlight of the winner's card while 2014 Club Champion Traher had seven birdies, five bogeys and six pars in his round of gross 70.
One of those dropped shots came at the 18th, and Dashwood also had a five there to complete his round of 75.
Once again the competition proved to be popular with 80 entrants taking part.
Final scores: 67 Doug Vines (20); 69 Dan Traher (1) and Josh Dashwood (6); 70 Matt West (5); 71 Michael Gooch (19); 72 Brian How (12), Matt Wabe (4) and Robert Bentley (14); 73 Robert Herkes (13) and Paul Hensby (13); 74 Dean Scott (4), Scott Marketis (19), Minh Le (14) and Robert Kingsley (11); 75 Rafe Ashby (11), Tony Brooks (13), Ken Kirwan (19), Dave Hudson (7), Shaun Phillips (13), Nick Hill (10), Andy Cunningham (2) and Carl Williams (14).
The John Fison Cup was presented in memory of Thetford Golf Club's secretary from 1915 to 1930. He had been Captain in 1914 and was a member of the Fison family which ran a fertiliser business at Two Mile Bottom and the Maltings alongside the river in Thetford. He lived in the Red House, which was situated next door to the Bell Hotel in King Street opposite the Thomas Paine statue. The house was demolished to provide an entrance to the rear of the riverside shops.
