What are golf ball markers?

Golf ball markers are tiny and essential accessories that serve a practical purpose on the green, helping golfers identify and mark the position of their balls. While their primary function is to avoid confusion during play, golf ball markers have evolved into stylish accessories that allow players to express their personality and add a touch of flair to their game. So why not have the kids make Dad a set of handmade golf ball markers for the fairway?
