Golf course yardage indicators

The following six objects help a golfer know the distance from the golf ball to the hole. They can be helpful when deciding what club to hit.

  • Tee Box Yardage Sign
  • Sprinkler Head
  • Yardage Marker
  • 100 Yard Marker
  • 150 Yard Marker
  • 200 Yard Marker

Tee Box Yardage Sign

The tee box yardage sign shows the hole number, par number, and the distance from the different tee boxes to the center of the putting green.

Sprinkler Head

Sprinkler heads help water the grass on the golf course, but they sometimes show the distance to the front, center and back of the putting green. Sprinkler heads and yardage markers can be found in the fairway and the rough throughout a golf hole.

Yardage Marker

A yardage marker is an object found on the golf course that shows the distance to the center of the green, and depending on the course, to the front and back edges of the green to assist a golfer in determining which golf club he should hit. Yardage markers can be found in the fairway and the rough throughout a golf hole.

100 Yard Marker

The 100 yard marker indicates 100 yards away from the center of the green. It is normally red.

150 Yard Marker

The 150 yard marker indicates 150 yards away from the center of the green - it is normally white. It can also be in the form of a white checkered pole that sticks out of the ground.

200 Yard Marker

The 200 yard marker indicates 200 yards away from the center of the green. It is normally blue.
