By the way, the QR codes on each hole's sign takes you to info about that hole. Originally they were going to have video of a drone flight from tee to pin. Instead they have a Google Earth video, which is a poor replacement. The images of the signs they have on the Course Web page aren't the final version either.
Google Earth has an elevation tool. I have no clue if it's accurate.

Honestly don't know.
I think they actually did get a surveyor for Indy Lake's original Red Hawk course. The Gulch at Merrill Park West has elevation change as well, but don't know if they hired a surveyor.

Advanced google maps and some other sites with detailed topography lines. Not that hard but doubt its super accurate/ useful on a hole by hole situation.

i quote topoquest on a lot of my reviews, but i doubt it will give you the accuracy you desire. its free, but it really only works with a +/- of 10 feet.

I'd say you did well. Next time consider making the color of the basket contrast more with the background image, but overall it's the kind of tee sign I like.
