I actually prefer "Delta Alt". (I know Elevation is okay from a dictionary standpoint, but i think of elevation as being and angle, as in azimuth and elevation.)

I doesn't matter for this one since it's zero but which tee is this for? Or would you include two numbers?

How about just color code the tees rather than call them Pro or Long.

Mando color change would be beneficial. Also, the flight lines are really unnecessary for players past beginners. I mean beginners couldn't even hit that line anyways could they?

Also the space on Next Tee helps

Or just "Blue" and "Gold" or "Yellow" or whatever the colors are. That way they also match the signs.

I like the tee signs! Nice job! Like someone said earlier, the mando marking is easy to miss. If you could find a way to make it stick out it would be amazing. One other nice touch is the explanation on how to play the OB. That should help some people that are new to the game understand it a little better.

That's one of the nicer tee signs I've seen. The only thing I can think of, it's really nice to have the hole number really standout. It kinda gets lost in the other numbers. if there's one thing you need to be able to see from a ways off, it's the hole number.

I say this, not knowing what your course looks like. If it's laid out really well, then the flow will take you right to the next tee, so the numbers being large may not be important.

Are the tee colors locked in? I like the idea of following the traditional color scheme for tees, in which case gold is for pro level tees and blue is for advanced level tees.

I like the original different coloreld font on the pro and am tees. It looked nicer and differentiated nicely imho.

I would tend to agree on this point. Since PDGA has standards out there for hole length and skill levels for wooded and open holes, what ever this course was designed for should be on the tee sign markers... Gold, Blue, White, Red are most common levels

Nice signs, I just tend to like more standard colors/tee designations. Ball golf seems to have gotten that right and is standard on every course, we have similar standards, and it would be nice for travelers and tournaments to utilize those standards. Just an opinion though...
