Building Tee Markers

The tee markers that you see on the golf course are hand crafted by the maintenance staff here at CCCP. Every winter the markers are prepared for the upcoming season of abuse from being exposed to daily irrigation and ultraviolet rays. The markers are completely stripped of varnish, sanded and the logos are re-burned. There are many times that new markers must be built and the pictures below will show the process.

The raw material is stockpiled

Tree limbs are cut to size

The broken tee collector is hollowed out

Holes are drilled for drainage

The logos are branded on

Varnish is applied in three coats
