A total of 22 teams of four golfers played the 18 holes with plenty of competitive spirit.

Teams were made up of local businesses, other golf clubs, Rotary clubs, and individual supporters for the event raising money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and armed forces charity SSAFA.

James Bagge, High Sheriff of Norfolk, represented SSAFA in a team of ambassadors for the charity. The EAAA was represented by a team of senior clinicians from the organisation.

A charity auction was followed by a prize presentation.

Organisers Graham Curtis and Denis Bishop said they were thrilled with the turnout. “This is an excellent response from golfers locally, across the county and further afield,” they agreed. “We hope we can raise a significant amount for the charities.”
