41- 2-17-23  Close up of Scoreboard with match results using new tiles purchased from Sign-A-Rama in Fountain Valley.   I added magnetic strips on the back of each tile.  The scoreboard shows scores for each hole for course designated in C column.  The 'T' column is the nine hole total.   The right column is the 27 hole total.  The blank space to the right of the actual scoreboard can be used for anything.   The tiles are stored on the 9 inch red shelf under the name column plus some extras 1's and 3's on shelf at the bottom of right edge of scoreboard.   The miscellaneous digits on the right are for quick use if needed.  The right most portion is explained in picture # 38.
      The gray part is sheet metal which is magnetic.  I just had to paint the three
2x2' sheets.

42- 2-17-23  Below is the data on the right side of the scoreboard.
I put a plastic sheet over the paper  with magnets on top to hold in
place.  The top document is a thank you letter from Tom and
Dawn Bemiller, owner of  Pro Turf Sales, Inc., installers of the
putting green.  The lower document is a list of people that helped
make the putting green World Class.

43- 2-17-23  Flag holder mounted on side of house.  OSU table
cloth cut-out to the left is pulled over the flags to protect from
dew and rain.  Roof overhang also protects from rain.  When flags
are in use the rack can be used for extra putters.

44-  2-17-23  Using plexiglas, ball barings and a slope I am
able to keep the tiles standing up after pulling a tile out to
post a hole score.
