Default Cheap, semi-temporary next hole signs?

Hey guys,

Looking for ideas for some cheap, semi-temp next hole signs to help with navigation until we get signs made in the spring.

Ideas?

How temp? You could get Coroplast (think yard sale or election signs) from Lowe's or the like and make some pretty cheaply. They won't be tamper proof at all obviously.

That could work... can you just use vinyl stickers with that?

Print out a bunch of next tee signs and go get them laminated. Nail them to a tree that could point in the right direction. Costs is really cheap for that and won't get wet or anything

Goose, simple plastic/polypro/acrylic signs hung under the cage (zipties) work great as a quicky. A course I used to play did this when they first opened and didn't have a map posted, tee signs, or trails worn down yet. Worked great.

Examples: (click image for more info)
$2.66 each - 12" x 4" Rigid Plastic

$3.02 each - 4" Round - Glow

wood cut into arrows held by zip ties; very temporary, as the zip ties always deteriorate, then you get arrows pointing up or down like in this pic:

I have seen stuff similar to Chevis' suggestion, painted portion of the basket that point towards the next tee pad. Could also use some colored tape for a more temporary directional guidance. Also wood stakes and cut out wood pointing arrows, stick them in the ground pointing the way. If you do tee signs make sure to add the next tee pad to those signs as well.

Don't attach signs to trees in parks. That's against the rules in most parks.

Courses around here have colored one bar of the bottom of the basket to point in the direction of the next tee.

The catch is, players have to realize that, for it to be useful.

Not a complete solution, particularly where there are long transitions, but it's cheap and works.

One spoke in each basket is painted red to indicate the direction to the next hole.
Then color coded next tee signs nailed to trees show the location of individual tee pads. They're made with plywood, stencils, and spray paint.
