Nicely done. This is a great inexpensive improvement to assist in helping with the visibility of a basket from distance. My 40 + year old eyes appreciate it.

Sweet improvement, I know you love that course.
Truth. I could play 1098320934 different layouts of Calvert if I just wanted to point and shoot to any basket I saw from the tee.

Sharpie problems or not, I like the idea. Worst that could happen is you paint over it and then reinstall some number stickers. Really like the tiki torch idea as well. As an extension, you could also put a flag or "next tee" signs attached to this marker as well. Then you're not interfering with the basket as much.

I've got a couple holes that have flags and they work great with each other, I guess it's a perk from mounting to the rungs instead of in the tube some how.

It appears that would drop the price to about $60, assuming labor and painting them is donated.

An even better idea would be to sell add space on those. If 18 were sold at $25 a pop, that would generate nearly $400 after materials are paid for.

Thanks for posting, I really want to add these to my local course!

Selling ad space was kinda a idea to go along with this but i'm not local to this course anymore so that was to much time I didn't have. The paint shop sponsored the labor of painting and numbering so they got to advertise on all 18.

glow paint would make these more stealable!!! i'm just saying that they look nice but glowing would be silly awesome for about 5 bucks more.

Those are super cool. These would be great on a course with multiple pin positions, you could have different colors made up for each position. Something like a set of orange for A positions and a set of yellow for B. I know I have been to a few courses where its hard to tell whether the basket is in one position or the other, if they were color coded there would be no problems at all.
