Fakenham Golf Club hosted the annual Norfolk Nine Hole Club Alliance Challenge Cup.

This is a competition between the nine hole clubs in the county who agreed an arrangement which gives their members a reciprocal agreement to play at other such clubs at a reduced green fee.

Fakenham, Dereham, Ryston Park, Feltwell and Searles from Hunstanton put up teams to take part in the tournament, with Searles winning the cup with a score of 231 points.

Eight players - two men, two women, two seniors and two juniors - made up the teams, playing individual stableford, with the combined score to win.

Individual winners were Jon Gibson (men, Searles), Martin Gould (seniors, Fakenham), Sue Fleming (women, Searles) and Aiden Emry (juniors, Ryston Park).

The match was followed by a carvery meal and presentation. Next year the rota system takes the tournament to Feltwell.
