At Ashton Court Estate, each control marker is a concrete post with a control number and letter on it. The Control Card on the reverse of the map shows the 23 control numbers and their descriptions. Three courses are suggested on the back of the map; Beginners (Yellow), Medium (Light Green) and Long (Blue).

The courses are set up to be used with the UsynligO (See VOC description), or control letters can be written on the back of the map.
