Golfing just got so much easier, even for those starting out, with these great new signs at every hole at the South Lakes Golf Club in Goolwa located in South Australia’s beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula.
The Roadside signs manufacturing team in Adelaide was commissioned to create these signs to give every golfer the pro advantage they are looking for.
In fact, golfing at South Lakes Golf Club, has become as easy as following a recipe - slice it, chip it and put it on some greens.
But let’s get a bit technical and give you the recipe how these great signs were made.
The Roadside team used a powder-coated black post and plate system utilising an Orafol class 2 material.
Roadside Managing Director Craig Woods says: “Working closely with the course management and in house golfing experts, the Roadside team undertook all the design work to create a whole picture (visual of the hole) adding trees and other course feature elements. This gives the golfer a realistic view of the drive range of each hole.”
Each hole is sponsored by a local business or entity.
“To ensure there is easy changeover of hole sponsors we have added an easy replacement system plate at the bottom of each sign. This adds convenience, practicality and cost-efficiencies to ensure sponsor details remain current and sharp at all times without having to replace the entire hole sign,” Craig Woods says.
Here are some tips for keen golfers wanting to try out the Goolwa course … nothing like a bit of tuition along the way to have you hitting like a pro at the South Lakes Golf Club course. A great partnership between the Roadside manufacturing team to make the signs clear and effective and the South Lakes Golf Club management giving guidance and advice for each sign, to ensure the best day’s golfing is enjoyed by all.
Each hole offers you the distance and par average to see how you’re measuring up.
A challenging first hole with a gentle dog leg right, that usually plays into the prevailing wind. Longer hitters aim for the blue ball in the distance, however keeping to the fairway is a must to avoid the penalty area on the left and the green side bunker on the right. Par is a great score here to start your day.
The first par 3 may seem easy but with the front bunker and sharp embankments this hole is anything but. Missing the green on either side will leave a delicate chip back onto the green. This is one of the smallest greens, but flattest greens.
The safe play is to hit your approach shot to the front left of the green as the bunker leaves a tough second shot. Be careful not to pull your shot left as you may have tree trouble.
