Well, we didn't actually mount them as they were temporary. We used some metal things used for holding up yard signs. It worked fine for what we were doing, but you'd need to come up with some good way of mounting them to make them permanent.

A course that I've played in Wisconsin uses PVC to mount the tee signs:

The photo from hole 9 has a tee sign in it. I wasn't able to link directly to that picture.

We are looking for someone to do the graphics work for us down at City Park in New Orleans. We need 36 signs total and we have donated 12x18 metal sheets and poles ready. If we can find someone to do the graphic design work, we can add remove and replace sponsors without spending a ton of $$. Who has the skills and wants to work on this project? (We have some old sign files in adobe illustrator that could be re-vamped/updated to save some time.)

I realize this is 5 years after the original post, but I thought I'd throw in my tee signs for people who are still looking for cheap sign ideas. I used Google Earth actual satellite images for each hole with a little Photoshop to show the best route lines and baskets. My course has 2 basket locations for each hole and we switch them out about every month.
I used Open Office Drawing to make the signs and used a commercial copier with colorfast ink so they fade very little if at all. I laminated the photos and attached them to T-111 plywood.
Under a buck a sign and pretty good results. I have made numerous changes to holes and it's nice to just print and laminate a new sign.

I am currently trying to find help on what the best way to improve my local course would be. The only 3 things I think it needs is tee signs, properly sized tee pads and better markings to guide players from one hole to the next. If you don't mind me asking what is the proper way to gather accurate distances on dog legs that bend hard left or right?

IMO, you can either find a visual marker in the fairway to measure to from the pad and to the basket and list both distances on the map in small font. Say it is 250 ft to the tree then it heads left and is 125 ft from tree to basket. Or you could just the approx middle of the fairway and do the same thing. Go straight off the pad approx 250 ft and then it doglegs left and go another 125 ft to basket. If you want to do distance pad to basket then the old A (squared) + B (sq) = C (sq) will get you the distance as the crow flies.

As for guiding players to the next hole/tee area, I have seen little arrows cut from wood or plastic and hung on the underside of the cage pointing to the correct direction. Could also just use some colorful tape and tape the one spoke on the bottom of the cage that points in the right direction. Pretty cheap and easy with fluorescent duct tape.

Worked with the local sign shop in town and made some new signs for the Ella Sharp Park DGC. Was able to do the artwork myself with photoshop which cut down the cost and the sign company printed them on some nice uv protected vinyl for around $10-12 a sign. Havent faded a bit after close to a year being up.

Attaching the bad sign and the new sign for review. Whichever company made the first ones used Yards instead of Feet and each sign had 3-4 random arrows on it. Also missing course name and par/OB notes. Volunteered to help them out if they just covered the cost of materials from the sign company. These are approx 8-1/2 x 11 in size and stickered over the metal backing that held the original signs.

For anyone looking for something super cheap/temporary, I made a full set of 18 signs for about $50 for my private course. I set them up for open days/weekends and take them down afterwards.

-Bulk coroplast blanks from Amazon
-2 doz. garden stakes and some exterior screws from Home Depot
-pack of multi-color sharpies from Meijer
-2 to 3 hours of doodling

They turned out pretty ok in my opinion. People have mentioned them and seem to enjoy them, sometimes I've been asked if my daughters (4 and 6 years) drew them. So there's that...
