    Re: halfway hut/club champs

    Due to the layout of the course ours happens after the 8th and again after the 13th. I've only been at the club for a couple of months, but I get the impression it's open for about 1/3 of competition Sundays - the more important the more likely it is to be open.

    I'm firmly in the "no stopping" camp. Grab a bottle of water and move on. If I'm playing well I want to continue. If I'm playing badly I want to get it over with as soon as possible. Hanging around for 10-15 minutes twice doesn't help either route.

    That said, the ladies that run the halfway house are lovely and the food isn't bad, so I guess I'll have to learn to go with the flow.

    Can't say I'd be up for a compulsory stop every round, although in a social round at an away course I can see the attraction.

    That would wreck my buzz , fond of me grub i am but il have something b4 i play and just a snack and drink when playing . i hate stopping even in the charity days for the free burger after 9 .. just ruins the tempo ..

    It's twice a year, and it's part of the day on both occasions.

    Rounds at ours take just over three hours so not a big issue in the wider scheme of things.

    Re: halfway hut/club champs

    Interesting. Ours seems to work perfectly.

    The 8th tee is near it, orders are placed at that point for those eating. Food is ready on arrival from the 9th green.

    5 - 10 minute stop, departure is just as the group behind arrives and the group in front is approaching the 10th green.

    I'd never even thought about it as being disruptive, it's just part of the round. Perhaps that's the difference? Where it's the case that sometimes you stop sometimes you don't, I mean.

    I can also see it's different where the course is two loops of nine returning to the clubhouse. Ours is one loop of 18 with the 10th at the far side.

    Everyone stops more or less. Very occasionally people carry on having asked permission of the group at the hut, but tends to be if it's a 2 ball behind a 4 or similar.

    Re: halfway hut/club champs

    We have a grab and go hut, has sausage and bacon cobs to go under a hot plate.
    I hear they are nice but the missus ex works in there from years ago. So I save the awkwardness.

    Refreshment cart on the other course sells cans of old speckled hen. And it's an extra pound if you want a shot of whiskey in your coffee.

    Does it matter to you how their game's going whether to stop or not

    Isn't that a bit selfish if the others want to stop anyway
    But it does highlight a potential problem.
    You have 2 of the 4 ball who want to stop and 2 that don't....who wins?

    We don't have a halfway hut but I don't want to stop at all. If I want to eat I prefer to do it before or after the round and I particularly hate compulsory stops.
