    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.

    to infinity and beyond...

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

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done

    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'

    There's nothing better than feasting your eyes on some buns on the turn...

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