Swaffham Golf Club was established in 1922 as a 9 hole course. In September 2001 an additional 9 holes were opened, which transformed the course into an attractive and demanding 18 holes. Most of the new holes were carved out of an area of mature woodland and have blended well with the older part of the course. Being on Breckland the course remains well drained and on main greens when many other courses in the region are very muddy or closed.
Swaffham is a very friendly club, with a wide range of mens, seniors, ladies and mixed competitions. A similar range of friendly fixtures are played against clubs throughout the county. The club also enters teams in all the county league and knock-out competitions. Since becoming 18 holes, notable successes have been the winning of the Cullington Cup, a mens county knock-out competition in 2002 & 2004, and at the first attempt, the winning of the Ladies County Scratch League in 2003.
