Open Competitions 2021

We run four Open events each year, as well as our Festival of Golf (see separate page within the Visitors section), which golfers with a current CONGU competition handicap are warmly invited to enter. These events are always very popular and you are advised to submit your entry early. Places are usually allocated on a first come first served basis.

The Veterans' Open, usually held in the middle of May, will this year be played at the end of June. This is an 18-holes Stableford competition for teams of three visitors plus one Bearsted member, with the two best scores on each hole to count.

The Ladies Open, usually held at the end of June, will be played this year in mid-September. This is played as a three-ball team event and is always well supported by Clubs throughout Kent.

The Bearsted Men's Open held at the end of June is a Kent Order of Merit event played as a 36-holes medal for players with a handicap of 18 or below. There are prizes for the best scratch and handicap score.

The final Open event of the season is the Mixed Open. An 18-holes Greensomes Stableford played in fours and this takes place in mid September.

Please note that adherence to our dress code is a condition of entry.
