Tuesday 17th March
In the present extraordinary circumstances, given the guidance that we should avoid unnecessary travel and exercise “social distancing” and given that some golf clubs are open only to members, not visitors, our Championships and Competitions Committee has taken the decision to cancel each of the Kent Golf Union knock-out competitions for 2020. These comprise the Kent Amateur Foursomes, Kent Junior Foursomes, Top Club, Kent Veterans and Eric Green Individual Members knock outs.
This decision has not been taken lightly. A suspension of these events would have led to an uncertain start date given what has been published as to the longevity of the present crisis or, indeed, cancellation at a later date.
Should matters progress in a manner that is better than presently anticipated, we shall look at organising events for some of all of these categories such that a competition of some sort can be contested in 2020.

In light of the email received from the Kent Golf Union notifying the cancellation of the county knockouts and to keep in line with all the government recommendations, this years competition is cancelled.
I will however review this if by some miracle circumstances change drastically in consultation with all the club representatives.
This years entry fees will be put forward to the 2021 season.
