Default Drop boxes/ money collectors for after hours?

Been looking for a good solution for when the office is closed, what are people using? Weatherproofing is key and map/ pencil storage would be a plus!

Two most common around here are either metal lock boxes, some with plastic pouches for maps attached, or the automated CC scanners that spit out a ticket.

The latter insures you get paid more regularly, the former is much cheaper. Flip City is just a metal box, so that could work for many places I guess.

Here's what we have. It's a regular postal box, there's no place for maps or pencils but something could be rigged I suppose.

Players often come to our course when the pro shop is closed or when the owner is away mowing or running errands, so he put a sign on the pro shop door giving guests the option of calling his cell phone (during business hours) or using the nearby kiosk. If they call his phone he will return to open the shop, check the players in, get a waiver signed, collect greens fees, and maybe sell some plastic. If they choose the kiosk they'll go through the same process, but on a self-serve basis. He then checks the kiosk periodically to confirm that everyone has paid.

The kiosk itself has a roof, signboard, large compartment to hold the sign-in documents, and a small compartment to hold the money. On the signboard are the course rules, course map, and course navigation tips. The large compartment holds a signup sheet, waivers, payment ticket, scorecard, pencils, and envelopes and has a plexiglass cover to keep everything dry. Players then put their signed waiver and greens fees in an envelope and drop it into a slot in the kiosk where it falls into a small locked compartment. The cost of the kiosk was around $100.

Whatever I used, I would want it to drain well. Maybe the floor is a screen. Someone will empty their unfinished drinks into it.

Our local places a had a wood box with Plexiglas on the front side for the course map with attached course scorecard with a hinge on it. This thing was only as wide as the map course its self. The Course used to need a map as it was hard to tell what tee pad was A or B for the hole before the Local club fixed the numbers to what hole and the letters back A or B tee pad. A is main tee B is alternate.
