After 11 years in service some of the course signage was in need of refreshing. Also for the last couple of years we have wanted to incorporate movable yardage easels on the practice range.
After researching different easels and prices, I determined these items were very expensive ( average $ 750 each ) and I wasn’t sold on the durability and/or longevity of the current offerings. Over a few brainstorming sessions with Bobby Flynn, we decided on a design and started the process in house.
After the frame was welded, horseshoes were placed in the inside corners and a 16 ga steel plate was plasma cut to fit. The steel plate was used for sturdiness as well as a base for the magnetic numbers.
Once we reached the finished raw stage, the frames were sent for powder coating and the plates were sent off for a digital layover.
While at the sign shop finalizing the easel layovers, new course signs were ordered. The signs were ordered without frames and once again Bobby and I went to work on designs and fabrication.
Last Friday the first two new signs went out on the course with the rest to be replaced as frames are produced.
And on Tuesday the first of two movable yardage easels was placed on the practice range. The easels are placed behind the hitting area with yardages measuring from the easel to the flags.
