We received a number of responses to the
editor’ note in the Sept-Oct issue (“Kale
to the Chief”) wherein was posed a ques-
tion asking if readers would enjoy healthier
options on the food and drink cart when
i appreciate your article, “kale to the
chief," and completely relate. wouldn’t
it be nice to have those kind of selec-
tions mentioned at the bottom of your
article offered on the beverage/food
cart? i know plenty of people who
would appreciate that!
not everyone wants to eat like a rabbit
when playing golf! i’m a fan of healthy,
to be sure, but like when i’m at the
baseball game, hot dogs are part of
the landscape of golf. add your kale
smoothie to the beverage cart if you
must...but please don’t take away my
dogs and brews!
and several postings in answer to the fol-
lowing question on Troon Golf’s Facebook
page: Do you think beverage carts should
have healthier options? Would you prefer
pita bread with hummus over a candy bar
and chips? Share your thoughts…
Kristin Kawa Brooks—Yes, please! i’d
love some carrots and celery—and
hummus would be great too!
Dan Bury—great idea...i usually like to
snack on peanuts or energy bars on the
course. never chips. too messy.
Conor Sullivan—fresh fruit perhaps.
we need to move away from saltier
foods as our golfers are out in the heat
for a few hours. even sell powder drink
mix packets with water bottles to offer
more variety while keeping stock lower.
John riley garrett—Yes to healthier
food and drink.
Brian hampson—it’s pretty hard to
beat hummus and pita bread!
