Courses in South East
I'm looking for a course (or courses within a reasonable distance of each other) in the South East that a) accepts visitors at the weekend, b) you don't need a handicap certificate and c) isn't too pricey.
A friend and I have been given the all clear by the women in our lives for a whole day of golf and beer. I was thinking of either 36 holes at one course or playing two courses that are not too far from each other.
I notice that some clubs offer day rates but not all. I have been to a few in the area and have trawled the web but if anyone had any suggestions that would be great.

As an alternative, try South Essex GC at Brentwood.
It has three nine hole loops so you could mix and match which loops you play.

Give pedham a go Richard. It's on the A20. As you turn off from the A20 to get onto the M25, the hill down to Eynsford. It's at the top.
