I took me a bit too. Essentially there is a smaller "rec" course on top of a bigger course. On the first sign you have 5 holes


Big course:
Hole #1 has 3 options
Tee to red
Tee to blue
Tee to yellow

'rec' course:
Hole #1
Tee to red
Hole #2
rec tee to yellow

As an idea, 2 signs. One for the full course and one for the recreational. Both signs are completely identical except the full course will have the rec layout faded and the rec sign will have the full course faded.

I think frequently tees that have just a single pad and multiple baskets ended being put in white. Given that some times we have multiple pads, and other times multiple baskets, that feels like it could be equally confusing.

Although, with the colored lines this might be completely moot. Simply putting the label by the tee should be enough (I do want to be mindful of those who may be color blind). I’d probably still color the separate rec tee pads red, though, as I think the does provide a good visual cue if someone just walks up to a sign a little oblivious.

I’ve thought about separate signs, but I have a feeling that this may ultimately just as harmful to some as it is helpful to others. People have a tendency to look at the first thing they see, and only see what they are expecting. People expect a single map on a tee pad, and will tend to look only at that.

I think I’m going to trial this design, maybe grab some people I know haven’t played the course and asking them to navigate without my help, and see how they do. Play testing is always the best way to work the kinks out of things anyway.
