Golf Pranks to Play on Your Buddies
Have Fun with Golf Gags and Pranks
Golfers might want to liven up a round with a prank. I've included some classics and some golf gags that may be new to you. A few of these I've experienced myself.
Don't take the game too seriously, when you can have some extra fun with your golfing buddies with these practical jokes. I'd love to hear some golf pranks that you've experienced, so put those in the guestbook at the end.
Go out there and have some real fun on the golf course with your golfing pals.
Try This Gag If You Live Next to a Golf Course
If you live adjacent to a golf course, golfers will sometimes hit their ball into your yard. It can be fun to place a permanently attached golf ball as a decoy where they will find it fairly easily. They'll be surprised when they try to pick it up and find that it is cemented to your patio or attached to a spike that's driven into your lawn.
You'll enjoy some smiles seeing the golfer eagerly reach for "his" ball, only to find out that it's all a joke.
All Kinds of Trick Golf Balls for a Golf Prank
You don't want your gags to be predictable so get a whole variety of goofy golf balls. Get ready for a good laugh when your golf partner hits this ball and it dissolves in a mist.
There's also one that explodes, one that wobbles through the air and best of all is the streamer. Actually there are 2 of each, but you'll have to find new victims each time. Your golfing pals will be suspicious after the first time you fool them.
They will keep an eagle eye on their balls to be sure you don't slip them another one of these.
Try the Exploding Golf Ball
Set of Four Trick Golf Balls - Amaze and amuse your golf buddies with these
Although these might not pass examination on the course, slip one into a batch of balls on the practice range where the golfer isn't looking that closely at the ball.
The unputtable ball can be used over and over for a good laugh. The others are for one-time use.
Slip in One of the Trick Golf Balls When Your Partner Isn't Looking
Tricky Golf Ball Poop Prank - Player thinks his ball landed in dog doo-doo
When your buddy tees off, zip down the fairway and slip this realistic looking gag in place of his drive.
He or she will blow their stack about inconsiderate people who allow their dogs to run loose.
Dog Poop Golf Ball
Be the first one to the ball and slip this out for your golf partner to discover. Ugh, too realistic for me. You'll be able to use this one multiple times. Just don't let your golfing pal toss it into the woods when he sees that you tricked him.

The Golf Ball Pops Back out of the Hole - with the Pop-a-Putt
I can hardly wait to see this one in action. Slip it into the hole before the other golfers get to the green. They will be steamed when they sink that putt... and it pops right back out of the hole.
The Perfect Putt -- Until It Pops Back out of the Hole
Here's an easy golf prank to play on a friend...
when he (or she) isn't looking, discreetly turn off the golf cart with the key. The golfer will jump in to drive to the next tee but the cart won't go.
Golf Ball Through the Golf Cart Window - Great gag
I've seen these and they are quite realistic. Everyone will say, "Hey, who hit your cart?"
The Marshmallow Trick for Golfers
Drop a marshmallow here there down the fairways and one on the green....when the next group comes behind you to find their ball....it will take a little longer. It's best if you try this on a fun group you belong to. Later over lunch, you'll hear their side of the story.
The Talking Head Cover
Lots of people have a whole menagerie of golf club covers, but I bet they don't have one that talks.
Press on Brian's paw and he spouts off with some smart-mouthed phrases.
More Prank Golf Balls - Exploding golf ball, streamer golf ball, and other trick balls
Imagine your golf buddy's surprise when he tries out this new ball that you're recommending. Tell him you are getting amazing distance with this brand and he/she will be anxious to try it. When it explodes as the club hits it, you'll have a good laugh at the look on his face.
There are a number of variations on this, so check out the one that you think will be the biggest hit or get a variety so you can surprise him again but with a different gag ball.
Get your phone out and pretend to be checking for messages. Get the camera rolling to save this moment to show to friends at the clubhouse later.
It's Time for Some Goofy Golf Balls
This is different from the exploding golf ball. This one turns into a watery mist when it is hit.
Air Horn on the Golf Course?
Another Exploding Golf Ball
Find a way to slip this onto the fairway for your golf companion to hit. What fun!
Tricks for the Putter
Unputtaball Golf Ball - Have a good laugh with this one
This one is off-balance, so it wanders all around when you try to putt it. This one will make any golfer crazy.
Flat on Top Golf Tees - the ball falls right off
Tees normally have a slight cupping on the top for the curve of the golf ball. These flat top tees don't look that different, but are absolutely impossible to use.
I fell victim to this prank, when I picked up a tee that was lying on the tee box. It took me several tries for me to realize that there was something wrong with the tee. Sprinkle a few of these around the tee box and see what happens.
Flat Top Golf Tees to Prank Your Golf Buddies
Most people will try 2 or 3 times before they suspect that something isn't right. Then they examine the tee and realize the top is flat rather than the usual cupped surface. They will know they've been pranked.
