    Re: Halfway huts - how good is yours? (if you have one)

    Our halfway hut is a gem, its open most days and is great value, tea/coffee + a sausage or bacon roll is circa £2, soup for a £1, choccies and cakes. Most members use it and would be devastated to lose it.

    Re: Halfway huts - how good is yours? (if you have one)

    Our 9th green is about 50 yards tops from the clubhouse but we still have a halfway hut to the side of the tee boxes on the 10th. I guess that makes it easier to staff the hut?

    I don't know what food they do as I don't like to eat during a round, I think the usual bacon baps and soup and stuff. I do usually buy a bottle of water though and they do have a very cold fridge.

    Bit pricey but we're a 'year round Stay and Play' course so the vast majority of players are visitors, scalping them a bit to put back into our course isn't so bad

    How good is ours? Don't know, but we only start building it next week. Going to be between 7th & 12th greens (and therefore also adjacent 8th &13th tees which are also starting points). Looking forward to it.

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    Ours is a nice grab and go hut for Bacon and Sausage cobs. Tea, coffee, lager.
    and on the other course we have a refreshment cart doing much the same although the guys sell a drop of whiskey for a quid in your coffee.

    The alchohol is huge welcome if I've NR'd and I'm being flag man.

    Point taken, however I must argue with your maths.

    There are definitely 19 holes, I know this because I can play the 19th much better than the other holes.

    Therefore it would be 'the 11/19th-of-the-way-hut' or the '57.89%-of-the-way-hut'

    What percentage do you think use the hut at Blackmoor, even without Katie :-)
