COVID-19 Guidance Page 


Following the Government announcement on Monday 22 February 2021 regarding the "roadmap" for easing Covid restrictions, Kent Golf are delighted that playing golf will re-open on 29 March. However, with many Covid restriction still in place for some time Kent Golf have agreed there will be no Kent Golf competitions until 1 June 2021 at the earliest. Regrettably all knockouts have been cancelled for 2021. 

Entry dates to those competitions that are scheduled from 1 June 2021 onwards will be opened on a rolling basis to entrants 5 weeks prior to each event. This is to allow Kent Golf to monitor and minimise administration in the event of further Government guidelines. 

Kent Golf will continue to review the situation on a regular basis in accordance with updates from the Government together with guidance from our governing body, England Golf. It is imperative that we work to ensure the health and wellbeing of our members, players, staff and volunteers as well as all of those who work at our host golf clubs.

England Golf have made further amendments to the Play Safe ‘Playing Framework’ document to reflect the most recent changes to Government Guidance.  

Reduction of VAT

  • The reduction from 20% to 5% comes into force from Wednesday 15 July 2020.
  • The reduced vat rate of 5% does apply to supplies of qualifying foods/drinks served in golf clubhouses and associated catering facilities
  • The reduced rate of 5% does not apply to green fees but only for entry fees on the government attraction list. So green fees will still need to be charged at 20% for proprietary clubs (private member or not for profit clubs do not charge VAT anyway) .
