Hi everyone. We are in the thick of tournament season, and are living breathing trophies; really. We’re excited to show you what we’ve been up to thanks to the creative minds of our clients and designers.
Our welder created a 3D tree award based on photos our clients sent. Here’s what we did for Champions Run’s oak tree. We’ll have more trees to look at soon.We’re about to make one that’s modeled from the course’s tree that resembles broccoli.. We get all kinds of requests here at RHI..
For the ladies’ tournaments, Blue Jack chose a 3D flower award, and then we made the Gold Shoe award for a local organization.
Derby trophies are fun to make. Here’s Spurwing’s derby award. They chose a 4″ steel base that our welders created ‘tree bark’. Because it’s made from steel, there’s weight to it despite the ‘small’ size.. Then there’s a horseshoe on our ‘standard’ base made for a private tourney. Clean and simple.
We’ve worked with Pete Dye the last few year’s, and it’s been fun making 3D coal carts. They have a coal cart on their facility, which makes these trophies unique to their club. That’s what we encourage clients to do; showcase something that is unique to their club like a specific tree, or something that’s a landmark theme.
We made tomahawks for Wyoming Valley’s winners, shotguns for a charity event, and clubs/shot guns trophies for the Big Sky & Birdie event in Montana.
The Whipporwill trophies are a good example of how a color change can be all that’s needed to make a trophy fresh. They’ve done 2 shades of blue and then debuted with red steam shovels. Their event is called The Steamshovel Invitational.
For Red Rock CC, we used round trophies for their champions, and square awards for their flight winners. We layered their rock logo for a dimensional effect. Then we made a 3D lamp post, which is Carmel Country Club’s logo. Our designer first created this design at the 2016 PGA Show while they were talking to us.
Elmcrest CC is doing several events with us. These creative trophies came from sketches that they sent us, and then we made them 100% custom.
That’s all we have for trophies to share today. You’re welcome to browse our tournament supply section for more ideas. We update our galleries weekly.
