Key word in yesterday post was "ALMOST".
I mentioned in my original post why one side was advantageous- if you have signs all over around the teeing areas - then your teeing areas aren't designed well enough - because that means something is in front of your teepad which would be worse than placing a sign there.
I'm referencing the safety issue of a tee sign that obstructs run ups (for those that do) or is in the reach of during follow through.
By the way - Bullet points are for for school and work papers that get turned in for credit. Run on paragraphs are a lot easier for Disc Golfers to understand.
Whatever works for the designers WITHOUT putting tee signs BEHIND or to the sides of the actual teeing surface - is all I really care about as a player because they get in the way of the vast majority of golfers in those places.
PS..... Take a look at the hole of the day holes on DGCR and you'll see almost everyday a sign literally a foot from some part of the tee or right in the runup area.
Boy i cant wait to argue about this in vegas with you.
tee signs, or anything in front of the tee pad is the stupidist thing you can do.
tee signs should be placed behind the tee pad. period.
i will agree with you that they shouldnt be part of the tee pad, or even close to the tee pad for whatever reason you want to expound, BUT not ever in front where it will create a distraction.
heres one big reason why:
eagle scout project, from someone who doesnt get it, installs 18 tee signs. 9 are on the side and in the front of the tee pad and 9 are behind the teepad in various positions. in one year ALL NINE IN FRONT of the tee pad were kicked over and stomped on by the general public and the ones in the back were left alone.
for that reason alone you shouldnt put them in front.
ok keith..... see you in vegas.... woohooo....
