The vast majority of courses do not allow booking more than 7 days in advance (unless booking in large groups), preferring to capitalise on the income created by short term visitors. However due to demand, short term booking is almost always necessary and those turning up on the day expecting to play may find themselves disappointed. Do contact the corresponding clubhouse in advance to be certain before turning up.
