hole sponsorship

I am just wondering if there is any one out there that has raised money for courses by selling adds on the t'signs at courses. Not just for tourneys, but to actually pay for improvements on the course...

How much did the course charge for what sized signs?

How long was the sponsorship for? (1 year, 5 years)

Any info would help.

The park we worked with would not allow this (business names on tee signs) so make sure you OK this with the park first.

ERP did that here, lifetime deal and I think it was 300 bucks, I am sure Scott will step in with the truth once his Batsense tingles.

This is done in Discgolf Terminalen in Skellefteċ, Sweden and I think they charge about 300-400 bucks per year and hole. Before they changed baskets they had the company logo on the tee-sign, the lower part of the basket and their webpage. This was a few years ago, I'm not sure about how they do it nowadays.

vinal on the baskets? Is that something you would get from any sign shop? Do Innova baskets come with the yellow chastity belt empty, or would you have to take off the innova logo?

Yep. 300 bucks for the lifetime of the course or the business (or individual). The money was earmarked for construction of concrete tee pads on the long (black) tees and for the tee signs themselves. 9 signs, plus a little extra money from other sources, paid for 18 pads, including the lumber for forms, etc., which we saved for re-use.

The nice thing is that 10 years is like a lifetime in disc golf course signage. Not much more for tees and pins is a lifetime. So, you can redo them down the road and sell these sponsorships again. All will felt they have gotten their value out of this length of advertising. 400 or more is really what it takes to sponsor a hole the right way. You have tees and signs, baskets, alternate tees and signs, alternate sleeves, benches, a trash can or bucket; maintenance of hole, etc. It's really more than 400.

Yeah, we did 400 at LTC. I came up with that figure based on our estimates of installing the course, and actually the course co-designer wondered how I settled on 400; I figured asking 500 was too much (that's like a half-grand!), and anything under 400 wouldn't have gotten us the course. We started out by calling local businesses, and by the time we had 14-15 sponsorships we had people calling us to the point where we had to eventually turn would-be sponsors away (although the first few after we'd met our goal were given the option to sponsor the course directory/info kiosk at the first tee, one of which was a lumber company that donated all the materials in exchange for an ad).

It may seem slow going at first, but if you're in a smaller community and hit up the family-run businesses, word will travel fast and you just may encounter the same "problem" we had! Good luck!
