The first order of business was to create a simple and clear map of the course that could be adapted to an information kiosk, hole markers and a new scorecard.
The new park signage needs to last. Gene specified weather-proof and vandal-resistant materials to protect the city’s investment.
Each throwing pad marker includes a hole number, map, par and distance.
The map was also reformatted to work in black and white on the scorecard. The card is available at the kiosk and as a downloadable PDF. A QR code at the information kiosk links visitor smartphones to the city’s website.
Simple and clear guidance helped installers know exactly where to locate signs without requiring extensive site work — saving the client money.
