What do you think of these tee signs?

We are going to add in elevation change (this hole has a change of ~100') and beginner tees, but otherwise this is what we are thinking for our tee signs. The black is all long grass or heavy bush, the green is mowed grass. The red line along the top is a paved pathway.

The white text will be different for every hole. Some will explain OB. Some will explain mandos. Some will give tips for the hole, like "there is a steep hill behind the basket: if you over shoot, you are looking at a challenging recovery shot."

Lightbulb It's a winner!

I like that. Very nice. The pointers and OB notes are cool. I layer at Holler in the Hills a few weeks ago, and he had sheets at the 1st tee with notes like that for every hole. I think that is great, and a big help to someone playing a course or blind hole for the first time.

I thought the green was the state of Michigan, and you play across it.

a "next hole" arrow near the pin or header is helpful

Nice. Easy to read, well-styled. Should look solid on course. Good luck!

My brother did signs like these for the course at the community college where he works, Rockness Monster.

How do you have such beautiful signs and I live in an area where I can't spit and not hit a disc golf course, and I'm lucky if I get a hand drawn Sticky Note telling me which way to throw? LOL.

Seriously, great job.

Looks good. But if you wouldn't have told me what the red line was I never would've known that was a paved pathway.

If you don't want to put small text by the red line saying that its a pathway then try changing it to a light grey color, like the color of the pathway.

Only thing I would change is the color of the flight path of the disc. If it was white/gray/yellow, it would be slightly more visible against the dark background of the sign. A minor thing still.

I think people are used to seeing things on maps in certain colors - grey paths, blue water, green trees. I think keeping to a color scheme that's recognizable is a good idea.

That said - I do like the OPs sign.

When I see red I think OB....So if the path is OB I would do a lightgrey and then in front do a skinnier line in red to show that on the pathway would be OB...also mentioned was an arrow pointing to the direction of the next basket thats always really helpful for people new to the course. Other than that the layout is good. Good job
