The Importance of Disc Golf Signage

Tee Signs and a clear course map are critical components to the success and popularity of any disc golf course design.  Detailed signage allows a player to easily understand how to navigate the entire disc golf course plus the tee signs give specifics on the layout of each hole.  It is important that the signage not only gives details about each hole, like distance and par, but also shows clearly where the out-of-bounds lines run and where any mandatories are placed.  This will help ensure that tournament directors understand the course designer’s intent on how the hole ought to be played to ensure pace of play and safety during big events. 

For signage to be accurate teepads, basket locations, key trees, and natural/manmade features of the course ought to be mapped utilizing GPS coordinates. We can also determine the elevation profile from teepad to basket, which helps the player analyze the best way to attack the hole. It is also important that the course rules and any other specifics are added to the main course map, plus incorporated into each tee sign. This will help ensure that players respect the property owner’s desires for allowing people to play on the property, plus it can help reduce liability for the property owner. Finally, cool facts, short stories, and a hole name can help a tee sign really stand out.
