There are 10 players in each team and they compete in a four-ball betterball format, with three matches played off scratch and the remaining two matches played off handicaps, the maximum of which is six.

This is an annual scratch knockout competition involving other East Kent golf clubs. It's a team of eight and the winners play against the winners of the West Kent League competition in a one-off game to determine the best Kent club.
The Kent Foursomes is a scratch competition in which all competing clubs are represented by two pairs in a one-leg format.
Both games are played over the full 18 holes and the winners are determined by the aggregate score of the two contests.
If a tie finishes all square after the 18 holes, the second pairs will play off in a sudden death decider.
