Had a hard time finding this one, Sprague (355!) :P

Can you trim that down to just the current distances to be printed on the temp tee signs for Rumble?

I envision just printing a picture of "the turn" with the hole length and having it laminated. Do we need to consider adding graphics, such as sponsor logos or club logo?

Yup, I've parked 18 both straight at it and hyzer around. It would be out of my reach if it was any more than 250.

Sprague wrote:The goal is to have signs similar to Marshall Street. Their signs show photos that are represented on the hole map by a number - so it's as if you are standing at the turn for blind holes, or at the pin area looking back for the shorter holes. This will give players an idea of what to do without having to walk the entire fairway. Also their will be elevation above/below in addition to advertising.

The hope is to sell the signs that are used for Women's Nationals to potential sponsors as a keep sake, since the signs and laminates are relatively inexpensive to replace. This would also give the business something they could display as a token of their participation - please pass this info on, as the Women's Nationals is only a year away - it would be good to start drumming up support.

The other good thing about the signs is versatility if the course is altered in some way. I love the River City Signs for look and function, but they are difficult to change once done - I wouldn't mind having a sign from River City commemorating the course and volunteers as this would be a permanent fixture - but for tee signs - I feel they are too fixed.

Hope this information is useful.

Nice work y'all. You built yourselves a monster.

As long as I'm going to Kinkos and printing a bunch of signs, are there any navigational arrows needed?

How about an arrow pointing the path from 9-10 to avoid walking up 10 fairway.

Man, I'm going to have to throw my QMS then. It sure feels longer than 250'. I do have a measuring wheel so I guess I could get my lazy ass out there and verify the D if I wanted too... :roll:

Or you could come out tomorrow night and help us measure the holes with a GPS unit??

GPS unit + Camden II = horrible accuracy and misguiding tee signs

Go with a range finder on this one

We used a $250 Garmin to mark and measure waypoints for some of the courses in Phoenix and found that it was inaccurate by about 20-40 feet, depending.

I have a laser range finder that I could use during the Rumble to obtain true distances. :wink:
