Updating your range in 2020
Start with what’s essential when updating your range or course accessories…
The Summer of 2020 might not be the time that your club is wanting to update the entire driving range, especially if you are in the North or East Coast. But you still need things… COVID-19 did not change the fact that your recycled plastic bag stands aren’t holding up to the weather and need to be replaced badly…
It’s a good idea to write down EVERYTHING that needs to be updated on the course and the range on a piece of paper. Then prioritize it and write a new list for 2020 with the ‘must haves’ and then the ‘would like to haves’ for 2021. This advice could really apply to personal life as well as a way of cutting spending and focusing on what matters most in life instead of the distractions…
At RHI Golf we’re seeing that many projects are being done in multiple steps. For example, some of our clients are ordering bags stands only instead of the range dividers, club cleaners, ball crates, etc. Or maybe all of the signage needs to be updated, but for now the most important thing is to get signs out there so people aren’t riding their rvs or walking their dogs where they potentially could be hit by golf balls, so a partial signage order is placed with the intention that more signs will be ordered in the near future. There are still full range orders being placed and capital funds are being released more and more. But don’t stress if there’s pressure to keep spending to a minimum. So start with the essentials and go from there. Not everything has to be done all at once. Breathe. You got this.
Here’s a look at some of the driving range & course supplies that have been going out our doors lately.
This is the mini-cart that we made for Tributary Club in Driggs, Idaho. Usually we made large carts, but sometimes a little smaller is just right!!
Range Dividers for Lubbock Country Club. We also made bag stands and trash can enclosures for them, but with their tree logo. For the dividers, we wanted to mix it up a little.
These are the clean & simple yardage markers that we made for Soule Park Golf Course in California.
At Champions Retreat we made them 5 sets of tee markers for their course in Georgia. The tee markers are naturally rusted steel with a low-gloss clear coat over the logos’ powder coat. They’re going for a low-key rustic look. Accomplished!!!
We did a few essential signs for Blackstone Country Club.
As states start to re-open, tournaments are going back on the calender (below are a few trophies).
