Is there a way to limit users from logging on to the two different computers
with the same user accounts? For example KCGolf logs onto computer A and
his friend wants to logon to, so KCGolf says use my account/password on
computer B. This would using Active Directory to authenticate.

You can specify which computer(s) an ID can log on to in Active Directory.
Open the user account, click on the Account tab, and then click the Logon To
button.

Hi,

You may want to look into the LimitLogin tool:

A while ago, Microsoft released a new tool designed to limit
concurrent logons, called LimitLogin.
