When putting a sign project together, the goal is to take the user into consideration first - making sure the most important information is clear and creates a simple wayfinding experience.
Sometimes the signs are permanent, sometimes they’re temporary or event-specific. Both require a complex integration of information, including considering multiple tee or pin locations, sponsor and municipality recognition and accurate renderings of tree locations, out of bounds areas and hazards. The course branding tends dictates colour schemes and illustration style.
A well-designed tee sign for a tournament will not only accomplish the goal of moving players smoothly through a course that may be unfamiliar, it will enhance their experience. Creating a positive impression of the level of organization and showing the organizing team’s commitment to creating a positive experience for their players shows value for investment. For sponsors, it’s a way to share their messages to a loyal and connected customer base who patronize sponsors and recommend their products and services long after an event has come and gone.
