Hey, some Indy love! I remember when we were getting the holes measured by a pro surveyor / part time discer. We were actually accurate to the inch, but we rounded the distances off to 0 or 5. The elevations are down to the foot though if I recall. Thanks..

I would have to say the signs at Tyler State Park are still memorable to me. All handmade and carved into wood. Really cool and lots of care and time when into those.

Pauls Valley Flightline uses granite tombstone type signs. Very cool!

Two Mile Extension's are about as clean and professional as it gets.

City Park's have a nice style to them.

I also enjoy Flanacher's home-spun feel.

Porcupine Ridge has some very nice hand-carved and painted tee signs. Shows locations on both tees, and lists distance for each tee.

i just got to play one of the hornings hideout courses for the first time & it has the best signage of any course i have played (i played the canyon course that now has the same detailed signs that meadow ridge has). one of the reviewers stated it best:
"This course has great signage. The signs are very detailed with all of the distances and elevation changes right there on the sign. Steep drop-offs and mandos are all on the sign. They even tell you the direction to the next tee after you're done with the hole."

I've been perusing this thread for ideas on tee signs.

Is it universally accepted that a tee sign must contain a hole map? Be honest - once you have played a course, do you ever look at the hole map? How useful is it, really? I assume most of the value from a hole map is for the first time, or first time in a long time player.

For a course that is mostly flat and open with mature trees, and all of the baskets are plainly visible from the tee pad - are hole maps really necessary for the first time player? That is the question I'm struggling with.

The rub is: I want to have a clean, professional look. Hole maps take up a lot of real estate on the sign and I'm questioning the value for this situation.

Can anyone think of a course that has signs mounted low on either 4x4 or 6x6 posts that are diagonally cut? Like these:



I'm looking for more examples like this. As a side note - I do really like how the DiscGolfPark signage looks.

I might be a little biased, but this might be my favorite when I'm done.

I'm dreaming up something like this ^ carved into this:
