Golfers took to the tees of Swaffham Golf Club in warm sunshine for a charity event organised by the town's Rotary Club.
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.
