Whether it is tee for two or tea for two, the concept is one that Percival is also happy to endorse, even within the walls of female oasis Grace Belgravia.
"Invariably in the evening, our members invite male partners in for drinks or an event or lectures," Percival explained.
"A lot of women love the fact that they have their own space during the day but it's nice to have a mix of things.
"It's fine to invite the opposite sex in as guests -- it's quite civilized as men and women do sit side by side -- but if the core of the club is also about single-sex, that's fine too."
And if golf's global organizers wanted to make a stand for equality they could always hold the men's Open at a ladies-only golf club.
Wouldn't that equal things out?
"The Open, held at a ladies club?" Dobie ponders incredulously. " It will NEVER happen."
