In addition to some of the usual range signs, tee markers and other range accessories – it must be tournament season because we’ve been building a lot of trophies lately! It’s funny, apparently we’re not the only ones to really dig the copper color, as several of our recent trophies have all used it, too.
Up first, are some trophies we did for the Gleason Project charity event at Black Rock. Steve Gleason is a former NFL player, who grew up in the area. He is battling ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), and has a foundation to help raise support and awareness for this disease. Here is a picture of their logo, and then some of the trophies we built based on that logo. The splattered paint was a lot of fun (and a little messy!), but these are one of our favorite trophies to date…
Then we had Member-Guest trophies for Gozzer Ranch and Manito Country Club – a couple of our beautiful local courses.
And finally (at least for trophies), we know a Pro at Sundance who is a skilled woodworker. He was building some wooden awards, but wanted a large, heavy, cut steel logo that he could mount to top of a piece for the Wounded Warrior Project. We cut this out of 1/4″ steel. It’s a beast!
Then we have several different types of range signs. These signs for Gozzer Ranch use their rustic, Western look and have interchangeable numbers for laying out yardages on the practice range. This sign for Waccabuc Country Club allows them to let members know the daily hours for the range, and they got another sign with the staff names for in the Pro Shop. These small signs for Castle Pines let them stake out Practice Areas and Teaching Areas, etc. Scott Klemme at Centennial asked for an adjustable stand that he could use on the range during lessons to put his iPad, etc. on.
Finally we have these new a-frame style proximity markers for The River Course. They also ordered some of the ‘standard’ proximity markers, but these ones are intended for use on the green. The a-frame can be set over the hole, and then measure to the ball.
