Buy Golf Ball Markers Online - Mark Your Green

Updated on January 28, 2010

It can be hard shopping for golf specialty items. Golf has many items that can be particularly difficult to shop for even for the pro who knows where to get everything golf related.. If you are shopping for a golf fan or even for yourself, you may be interested to learn about golf ball markers. They are the small item that a golfer uses to mark the place of their golf ball on the green. If you are not too familiar with this specialty golfing item, let me tell you what to look for when you make a purchase.

The first thing that you want is usability. There are golf ball markers that clip to the inside of a visor that are especially handy because the player never has to worry about where it is while they play. Another model will even stick to the tongue of the player's shoe. This is very convenient because a player has to bend over to pick up their ball - when they put their hand down to grab the ball, the marker will be right next to their hand.

You should also think about size and weight. Golf ball markers can be made from a multitude of different materials from plastic to platinum. The trick is to find something heavy enough that it will not blow in the wind, but still light enough that it is not a hindrance to the player. Try a marker simply made of stainless steel.

You could also consider purchasing personalized golf ball markers. It's actually pretty rare to see a serious golfer with a generic marker. Most players will have their initial engraved into it. Personalized golf ball markers make a great little gift for the golfer in your family. Initals are not a requirement though, you can also put pictures such as of you children, grandchildren, or pets.

Hopefully you've learned a little bit about what you need to look for when you buy golf ball markers. They really are quite handy to have, just ask Arnold Palmer.
