What the club says: Thetford Golf Club is a challenging par 72 course set amidst the beautiful Breckland Forest of East Anglia, with easy access from the A11. Pine, oak, birch and beech trees line the fairways and gorse, broom and heather lie in wait any ball that might stray from the wide-open fairways. It really is a wonderful place to play golf. Come and visit us at Thetford for a friendly welcome, great hospitality and good food. A super day out!



Most Helpful Review

Thetford offers a great location for Golf all year round as it soaks up any rain during the wetter months.
The downside to this is that it can get slightly dusty during the high summer as they are unable to use loads of water.

Its a great layout, can play really tough depending on the wind. Also fairly tight in places.

One of the best finishing holes in the area! - Jul 12 2016


Golfshake Team Review

Can play really long and tough depending on the wind.

Feel like you have to hit driver off most par 4's and 5's and sometimes with long iron shots in.

All round good course, especially in winter as holds the water well.

Greens mostly always in great shape. - Apr 29 2017

Brian Burgess rated 3 out of 5 - Jul 23 2018

For the final day of our Norfolk trip we ventured to Thetford GC. We had been trying to decide between Kings Lynn GC and Thetford and plumped for Thetford based on personal reviews we had been given. Upon hearing that the two courses were similar, we opted for Thetford on the understanding that it’s more welcoming and a fair bit cheaper - and are pleased we did so.
Thetford is a heathland style course, although the day we played the course was burnt to a cinder by the long dry spell of weather – as a result all the fairways were firm and completely brown. The greens however were absolutely fine and would hold the well-struck approach shot. The course is long, around 6,700 yds, however this is largely compensated by the relatively generous fairways. If there’s one gripe of the course, it’s the fact it becomes a little monotonous with its length – we felt it would benefit from having a couple of shorter par 4’s in its layout to offer something a little different.
That aside it’s a lovely layout, a trail-style course winding its way through the wooded, heathland terrain. Only a couple of holes run up and down and that we think always makes for a more enjoyable and varied experience. It opens with a tricky mid-iron par 3, never an easy start and another par 3 at the 3rd. Thereafter, you dive into the guts of the course, which as said is notable for its length. The course finishes with an extremely tough, slightly uphill par 4 at around 460 yds !
Everyone at the course was very welcoming to the extent we were able to play as part of the Captains Charity day despite not being affiliated to the club. Overall, it’s a course we would like to visit again in less arid conditions – however, we’d recommend playing here if you have the opportunity to do so.

A lovely course, plenty of bunkers and tree lined fairway. Definitely a course for another visit. Breakfast before the start was very good.

Played in the winter with no over trousers and did not get any mud on me, course in great condition, most of the par fours are very long off the yellows, greens are a good pace, and a friendly environment

Fantastic Layout & Good Test
Really welcoming secretary and staff. Had a great round here despite rain of biblical proportions in places today. Course drained really well and remained playable throughout. If you cannot enjoy this course you either so not like golf or you are dead! Will come back again and hopefully be luckier with the weather next time!

Great Heathland Course
Thoroughly enjoyed playing this great heathland course. Greens were very consistent and fairways were in very good condition. Sunshine made the course seem even more idyllic - if only my golf was as good as the course.

Best course i have played.
The course is challenging with well placed bunkers and greens. It was in perfect condition and looks as though it would be this way all year round. The members were friendly stopping to have a chat even in the carpark. Overall an excellent place to play.
