As a company limited by guarantee, Kent Golf Limited is by the Companies Acts to comply with a number of statutory obligations. As a private limited company, Kent Golf is not required by that legislation to hold an annual general meeting or, indeed, any general meeting. However, the Articles of Association of the Company provide that an annual general meeting is to be held in each calendar year to transact certain administrative business. These are: to receive from the Board the Company's financial statements, to receive a report of the activities of the Company since the previous annual general meeting, to receive a report from the President and Lady President (which will usually cover golfing activities), as and when appropriate to appoint a President or Lady President in place of such persons retiring, where candidates are proposed, to appoint Vice-Presidents, to elect the Elected Directors in place of those retiring or to fill vacancies and to transact such other business as may be brought before it. Notice is sent to all affiliated clubs, each of which is a Voting Member of the Company, such that those clubs can either send a representative to the AGM or submit a proxy form in order to exercise its voting rights. The Company permits associate members to attend the meeting, but these individuals do not have voting rights.
Kent Golf holds regular meetings for delegates, club managers and junior organisers in order to gain feedback on golfing matters.
