Default Tee sign design advice

My local course is getting an overhaul with new tee pads, partial re-design, etc. We are hoping to put up new tee signs once we get everything squared away. With a limited budget and money going elsewhere on the course, I am trying to design a tee sign design in-house. I have very limited design experience but I'm determined to make a professional looking product. I am using Inkscape which was recommended by a friend and have made a little bit of progress. It needs a decent bit of polishing to make it look professional, though. Here is an example of what I have so far. Does anybody have tips, suggestions, etc. to help me out? Any input is appreciated!

I guess it could be polished a little, but that looks pretty good to me right now. Maybe just tone down the bright colors a little, or not.

Took the words right off of my keyboard. Is the course listed on here?

Thanks guys! I think you’re right about the colors being a bit much. It’s posted as Kiwanis DGC in Staunton, VA.

I played there a few years ago, has some very cool holes.

A question that has bothered me for years; what is the function of the huge old building in the middle of the park and is it haunted?

It used to be a personal residence (pretty impressive especially for the time period). From what I understand it gets used from time to time for events but I’m not sure about that. Apparently paranormal investigators have been there so I guess some people have claimed it to be.

Looks good. Our club is using your strategy. FWIW the Par, Dist, Elev info is nearly 25% of the entire area. Bold colors add pop imo.

Quibble. I'd make the tee some other color than green, so it stands out a little better. It's the second thing I look at on a sign (after the hole number, making sure I'm in the right place).

As for the bright colors, you might weigh whether you want it to be easily seen from a distance (assisting navigation), or less conspicuous (aesthetics, in a park setting).

Some materials weather better than others, some colors fade quicker.

The graphic design is important, but what the sign is made of is more so.
