Golf Days
Setting up a charity golf day for next year.

Where is a decent place that does it around the M25 that people have been. going to be golf during day and dinner at night.

Anyone that's been and had a good day that isn't ridiculously priced then it would be much appreciated.

Re: Golf Days
As a kent boy residing in surrey, there are some decnt courses south of the river for a society..

value - Silvermere - Cobham - M25 jct 10 then less than a mile - we had a WHO day there a few years ago - one of my local pay and plays - decent challenge - great last two holes - 130 yd par 3 over water then a par 4 with a 9 iron to an island green in front of the club house - go out first and laugh at everyone else coming home.

Remember to pay homage to the WHO blue plaque at the thrids commemorating Kirk St Moritz's attempt to claim a free ddrop for 'animal scrapings' after shonking a drive 75 yards against the fence of the driving range.

Mid price - Hever Castle - only played there the once but a really good set up - feels like you're in the middle of nowhere - you'll need some volunteers to drive - 600+ par 5 coming home is fun into the wind.

top whack - east sussex national - Uckfield. 2 championship courses - time it right and you can get on both in one day. Hosted the European open in the 90's - holds open quallies now. Great place to play. last time the open was at Royal St Georges I played there on the Tuesday - John Daly was doing an exhibition for members. He out drove the driving range - and the 50 yards of scrub over the back, to land a ball 10 ft from the pin on one of the holes out the back. Harveys Best Bitter in the bar. Whenever I play there I get the train to Uckfield (from London Bridge) - cab is

Re: Golf Days
madeeasy, it will boil down to numbers and how much golf you play. If you have say 100 then a 27 hole course like Warley Park will suit. If you have a lot fewer then a private members club like Bentley will do.

Warley Park will also, as a business, be a lot more amenable to the course being taken over for the day. It is hilly unlike say Bentley but there are plenty of buggies for hire.

Re: Golf Days
North Weald is not great, they have moved the clubhouse and its rubbish. Toot Hill is very good as is the Bently.

I got the day off today, taking my father in law out as its his 60th tomorrow.

Playing The Royal Links, each hole is a replica of a famous hole from a british open course.

Got the hip flask full of whiskey, looking to shoot an 88

Toot Hill is probably the best course I've played in Essex.

We were chilling having a drink and overlooking the 18th green when a couple of blokes approached it. One of them took his putter out but his motorised golf trolley decided to keep on going and went straight into the water. Cue the bloke jumping in to fish it out, including his phone and wallet!

A proper lashed up bloke came up to us from out of the clubhouse and was cracking up after watching it all.

Re: Golf Days
The Warren does a cracking deal, has great practise facilities, the course is superb, the clubhouse has just been refurbed and the food is lovely. I'd highly recommend.

Re: Golf Days
Better off looking at Kent and Surrey. Most Essex courses aren't all that.

Re: Golf Days
Warley Park is close to Brentwood so why leave it out? Twenty seven holes too and ample catering facilities.

Re: Golf Days
I'd endorse Brentwood golf club as a choice.

Could also look at Toot Hill.
