kiosk ideas

Does anybody have pics of unique kiosks.... where the map/board normally is at hole 1. We are putting a nice new course in Lexington and we need some ideas. My idea would be to make a nice open looking small barn replica to tie things in with local horse farms. Enough seating for like 8 people or so that could wait to tee off.

Thanks

Here's one I built for the high-point in Louisiana. On the other side it has a bulletin board with flyers and brochures. The top is slanted down on both sides and shingled. It's held up very well over the last 7 years using regular treated lumber from Lowes and set in Quick-Crete concrete.

This design like we see with the high point example above usually are the most successful.

Things I like about it:
It's airy and raised above the ground.
I am not tempted in any way to climb this thing

I can see if anyone is on the opposite side of it so no hidden creepers are possible if I was a female walking up to it.

Covered roof for rain, but not so big the roof will weigh it down, fail and tumble the thing over.

Clear concise with big sized lettering I can see from a walk up distance.

Generally dark toned, and discouraging to me wanting to scribble on it with a black sharpie. I may want to carve it up with a pocketknife, but I might have to get on a stool to get to the best carving locations so I'm not going to do it. Too high to do a flying parkour karate kick or back flip off of.

It is wood, so maybe I just burn it perhaps?

(these are the thoughts that should be paramount when thinking about public infrastructure sadly)
