If the PAR is the same for both tees, I would make the par circle a different color. Right now it almost reads as if the pro tee is a par 4 and the am tee is a #10

A few more things:

1. I don't think you need to specify where the fairway for 9 is - listing the OB is enough, you can even write "OUT OF BOUNDS" there instead of "HOLE 9 FAIRWAY" and get rid of the out of bounds text on bottom right.
2. Is that a mando I see on the map? If it is, make it stand out and add it to the notes.
3. If you like the circles/rectangles combo go with it, but pick a different color scheme to avoid the confusion I mentioned above. I would just list par and then say something like AM: 89m PRO: 126m in their respective containers.

Looks good. I don't think the flight paths are needed though. Seems obvious. Also, gotta take in account color-blindness, I think Blue-Green or Red-Green is the most prominent. Looks really nice though!

I like the sign for sure. As a player, I mostly look at the overall layout of the holes on tee signs - this looks great for that. Something I sometimes wish I had is a more detailed map of where the next hole is. You have an arrow which might work good for your course. There are some courses around me that the basket is in the middle of the woods without a clear path to the next one.

Put the distances in feet and have an appropriate par for the hole. Par 4 for an 89 meter/270 feet or 129 m/400 ft. hole should be a par 3. Also don't like flight lines on signs as people will try different lines.

Agreed. I guess I assumed it was in another country since it had meters. Par 3 for sure. And flight lines are cool, but like I said before, I just like seeing the overall layout of the hole.

Ya the thing that I am not happy with is the balls and rectangles on the side. I really think the take away from the class of the sign
