25 ball markers that aren't poker chips
Ball markers are an overlooked golf accessory. Many players resort to using a neglected quarter sitting at the bottom of their bag, a flimsy plastic flat marker from a course they played three years ago, or the ever-so-classic poker chip. Having a ball marker that’s unique from your playing partners’ is always a good idea for practical reasons, but it’s also just a fun way to add a touch of spunk and personalization to your roster of on-course tools. A quirky ball marker can also make an incredible gift for golfers in your life when the holiday season rolls around. It’s time to ditch those boring and rusty old ball markers and opt for a piece that sets you apart from the rest. That’s why we scoured the internet for the coolest, funkiest, and boldest coins on the market right now.
