A strong field of both men and ladies took part, with Andrew Garrick, David Wade and Kate Faro-Wood producing the good to eventually emerge triumphant.

They will go on to join other players from the county to compete for trophies during a finals day at Bawburgh Golf Club in early September.

The competition in Swaffham followed an equivalent contest at Thetford Golf Club earlier this year, also raising funds for SSAFA along the way. Their representatives at the Bawburgh finals day will be Bryan Reece and David Sutton.

A total of £242 was raised for SSAFA Norfolk on the day.
