As it's our 10th anniversary it's only fitting that this years KIT will be a unique one-off event, celebrating the history of our club Open.
With this in mind the KIT will tee off early afternoon (time tbc but likely to be around 1.30pm) and will consist of 2 rounds of strokeplay on the now well established home of the Kent Open.
All sounds straightforward enough but now for the unique 10th anniversary twist.
As you know, the Kent Open has gone through 4 distinct phases in terms of the balls used and the KIT will pay homage to this aspect of our Open.
Players will all tee off from hole 1 on both rounds...
Round 1 will see holes 1-9 (inclusive) played with any balls you wish (any ball that is apart from any of our official Kent Open balls). Holes 10-18 (inc) will be played exclusively with our 2011 ball (the golf ball - NB you can use any of the WCGC balls if you haven't got your original 2011 ball!).
Round 2 will follow a similar pattern - with holes 1-9 played exclusively with our now legendary white VTK ball and then the final 9 holes, 10-18, with our regular current Kent Open ball.

Players will need to ensure they pay the course directly with their £5 day rate on the Saturday - entry into the KIT will be an additional £2 (payable to the organiser) - all monies will be pumped back into the prize fund for the Kent Open the following day.
