Just recieved an email offer from the group that own Westerham Golf Club with details of the winter deals they are offering at their various courses.
One of the clubs they own is "The Addington" (which I have heard of but never played) and looking on the website for the course and reading reviews on the Golf UK guide it is rated very, very highly.

Offer runs until March 31st and is only available Mon-Fri.

I am always a little scepticle of unlimited golf in the winter months.

In the summer seems a good deal if you can play 18 morning, have lunch and 18 afternoon.

Winter months I just look at it as 1 round, is it worth it for that and anything else is a bonus!

That's why I asked what time the clocks go back Tony.
I'm sure it is usually around the 3rd week in March.
So if you get in quick in the last week it won't be dark until about 7......and if you can't get 36 in teeing off at 9 in the morning (I'd go without brekkie to be honest) then you shouldn't be on the golf course

From memory it is a decent track just outside Croydon. I seem to remember it being short (by modern standards) but like most tiddlers has a lot of defences to protect par. I seem to recall (I haven't played it since 1986) that one of the holes has a huge crater from a WWII German bomb. I seem to have it in my mind tha tit has a lot of trees on it particularly at the corner of dog legs and that the greens were small but putted pretty quick and true.

I'd be up for a game if you let me know where and when
