Country club management would be the first to know what the 19th hole bar can look like after a beautiful golfing day. Remains of club sandwiches, beer glasses, condiments and sugar packets are everywhere. 19th hole bars need durable menus that still fit the part of a country club setting. Rustic style menus are a popular way of exerting the casual atmosphere of the 19th hole, while maintaining sophistication that country clubs require.
Table stands are a must in every country club to list featured specials and upcoming events. You may have sleek and upscale table stands in your dining room, but something more casual is better for the day setting and high-volume atmospheres.
A-frame table stands are a nice way to dress a 19th hole bar because they offer the professionalism of country club dining with an easygoing tone. A bamboo or wood A-frame table stand is perfect for a classy “pastime” look.
There are a few great menu design options for country clubs seeking to achieve that rustic look, but one in particular exceeds in durability. Bullet boards are sturdy, flat menus that have bands to hold the menu slips in place. This is a great option because if the menu becomes dirty, it’s very easy and timely to replace the slip menu. These also are great because they aren’t bulky and they are easy to handle and hand out quickly as golfers start pouring in.
The other great aspect about this menu type is the color options because you can achieve just about any look with these. You can choose a natural wood look or you can go to the complete opposite side of the spectrum with the dark, exclusive look that the rustic slate board offers.
If the banded menu doesn’t suit your establishment but you still need to achieve the sophisticated, rustic look, bullet board menus can be constructed into clipboard style menus or folding ring binders. These menus have several color and texture options from chestnut to gray driftwood, to oak, and so on. These menus are stain, water, and warp resistant and they are one of the most durable menu types in the world.
As far as check presenters go, there are a few options that really stand out. You can match 19th hole board menus with a board check presenter. These, too, come banded or not banded. Our whiskey barrel check presenters with laser etched branding are great if you’re really trying to impress. These are a great look for exclusive clubs.
The bamboo box presenter is a very attractive piece and doubles up as a great marketing tool because the logo is laser etched into the lid of the box presenter so it is never covered by the check. This check presenter also ensures professionalism like traditional flip-book presenters. It keeps the check unexposed, but allows you to carry out the rustic look throughout the member’s experience with its wood texture.
The new block presenter is a casual way of presenting the check without making a scene. The block sits on the table with a pen in its pen holder ready to go. The card holder is a great placeholder for the golfers’ membership cards or their credit cards, making it quick and easy for servers to grab and go. This style presenter is also ideal for minimizing interruptions about that outstanding hole-in-one.
Treating your 19th hole as a separate dining area leads to guests respecting it as such. Carry out a sophisticated, casual, and rustic look with menu supplies that best reflect your club’s scene. Menus are the number one marketing tool in food service, so represent the 19th hole the way you want your guests and members to perceive it.
