Canterbury Golf Club

East Kent League 2018

Canterbury are one of six clubs in the top flight of the East Kent League and each plays the other five teams on a home and away basis.

The competition is the oldest and most prestigious of the leagues in which Canterbury compete and attracts the best golfers from among the participating clubs.

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.

Canterbury have won the league on a number of occasions and have completed a league and cup double in each of the past two seasons, the most recent under debutant captain John Coupe.

In addition, the same squad competes in the Guilford Trophy and the Kent Foursomes. The Guilford Trophy is an annual scratch knockout competition involving other East Kent golf clubs. It is for teams of eight players and the winners play against the victors from the West Kent League in a one-off game to determine the best Kent club.

The Kent Foursomes is also 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 match finishes all square after the 18 holes, the second pairs will play off in a sudden-death decider.
