What’s in the shop this week? Well, other than some more lousy snow outside – here’s some of the things we’ve been working on lately.
First up are a set of tee markers for Arrowhead Golf Club out of Colorado. These are cut out of 3/16″ thick steel. They had us do them in 4 custom colors, here are a couple of them that I managed to grab a picture of before they were all boxed up.
Next, we’ve had several requests for tournament awards and trophies that “are something we’ve never seen before”. We’ve been experimenting with some new techniques and have paired up with a talented local artist to produce some awards and trophies that are truly unique. These are just samples at this point, but they turned out beautifully – and at a great price point for something of this quality!
This course asked us to come up with both a gift that each participant in their Member-Guest could recieve and a trophy for the event winners. They wanted something with a “Native American Hatchet”. Each piece is cut out of steel and hand painted.
The trophy is based on a piece of 8″ pipe, and probably weights 15-20lbs. It’s also hand crafted and painted. His incredible painting gives it a 3D look that is stunning.
Here’s another sample for a desert course. This simple cactus will make an amazing centerpiece for a trophy. All of the texture is done with just weld splatter and then hand painted.
Let us know if we can start working on something original and unique for your 2012 Member-Guest!
Finally here are a pair of boxes that were purchased by the guys at Trump National. The two boxes serve two different functions. First is what we call at ‘scorecard box’. This gets mounted on a pole (included) and is usually stationed near the first tee. It contains scorecards, pencils, tees, divot repair tools, etc. The second box is what we call a ‘tournament box’. This one is usually used by tournament organizers to carry the things they need from event to event and helps keep everything they need in one handy location. The tournament box is made of 1/8″ aluminum and is a great looking box that is more durable than anything else on the market. Both boxes can be completely customized to your individual needs and requirements.
And the tournament box – it latches securely, has a sturdy handle, and a foam-lined bottom.
