Come and join us for the first time at the highly-regarded Thorpeness Golf Club & Hotel for an afternoon of golf followed by dinner in the Country Club.

This award-winning 18 hole golf course was designed by Scotsman James Braid in 1922 and is a stone's throw from the Suffolk coastline. If you haven't played here before, this is an opportunity not to pass up!


From 11.30am - Check in and enjoy some refreshments and a bacon roll.

Midday to 1.20pm - Tee-off! You will be notified of your team's tee-off time with plenty of notice.

6.30 to 7pm - You will be offered a complimentary glass of Prosecco followed by dinner which is a two course meal from the Society Menu in the Country Club. We will also take this opportunity to present the prizes and we will be having a live auction as well as a silent auction. Finally, there will be a short presentation by CLEFT Chairman and surgeon Mr Brian Sommerlad to explain what we are raising money for. 

Competitions/ Rules of Play

Each team consists of 4 players - all welcome. Maximum handicap men - 24, ladies - 36. The main competition will be two best Stapleford scores per hole. We also have a few other competitions lined up for the afternoon. You can join in the 'CLEFT Ball' game (£20 per team) or have a go at 'Nearest the Pin' (£5pp). Finally, you can buy yourself a Mulligan (£5pp) for just when you need it! Hopefully you will enjoy all these competitions. Prizes will also be given for the team that comes in 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

All you have to do is sign up a team of 4 players and we will be in touch to confirm your place. Alternatively, if you are on your own or have an incomplete team, please email the CLEFT office by completing the form and we will help find other team members to make up a team.
