I'm assuming someone likes playing from the AM tees, am I right?

This is a bunk statement. Why in ball golf is the short tee the Women's tee???? That sounds waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse than "Pro/Am"

And you don't have to even label those "Pro," "Am," "White," or whatever. just have the numerical length in the same color as the tee color on the sign. everyone will easily find that the Blue number is for the blue tee, white for white, etc.

I do agree with going with PDGA standards on the colors, though. Great signs!!!

Not right. I enjoy either set of tees, but usually the longer ones.

Not bunk. There's a huge range of "Pro" divisions. MA1 (AMATEUR Advanced Men) would be much better suited to playing the LONG tees as opposed to MPS (PRO Senior Grandmasters) or FPG (PRO Women Grandmasters) that would be better suited to playing the SHORT tees.

And by "better suited", I mean playing tees that are more likely to generate scoring separation in tournament play.

Color designations are acceptable as well, but as noted try to pick the right ones.

Signs look terrific.. Even though we use the metric system I'd still prefer the distance markers to be in feet..

I still think there is more of a stigma calling a tee a "womens" tee than calling it an "am" tee...just sayin

and I was just making a wise crack about what tee you play, assuming that if you thought there was a stigma that someone offended you when choosing to play the am tees
