This, UNLESS a bag holder is incorporated into the signage. I actually like this idea. Three Rivers Parks have really sturdy bag holders and they work really well.

Pier Park locates them in a variety of places from near the front to behind the tee, but at least 5'-10' off to one side, as the winter wetness of the course necessitates having bag holders on the signs.

I have not seen this location for tee signs before.

Use your Zen to place the signs at the most appropriate spot for the landscape. Don't be set on a format-sign here pad here. Be sure to let the energy flow, picture the setting in a Disc magazine or in a town brochure.

Most important, 5 or 10 feet away from the thrown/run-up/follow through.

If you get ice in the winter, please leave room for an alternate run up to the side of the tee.

You beat me to it.....I was going to suggest consulting a Feng Shui expert.

In front of the pad is best. Off to the left or right.
1. you can see what you are throwing and the distance without having to get back off the pad.

2. A good distance in front at a diagonal from the pad eliminates issues where signs or posts are in the way of runups.
3. People kick the first thing they see when they throw a bad shot. I have seen tons of foot prints on signs. Location close to the tee or at the back of the pad leads to destroyed signs.
4. signs at the back of the pad are drawn on by players while they wait at back ups or for other people to throw.
5. People hang their bags on sign posts at the back of the pad not the front.

I think signs are best viewed from the pad (which means you can view them from behind the pad too)

There's a park in Nebraska which has them on the tee pads, in the back corners. Do not not not not not do this

Seth Burton in WV used to have them on the tee pads which was absolutely terrible. They have since cut them all off and moved them away.

I went for 5ft off the right front corner. Think this will give plenty of room.
