Although Walt Disney was more of a Polo man himself, it seems his progeny lean more towards the gentleman’s game of golf. And if you’re going to play, it’s not just the clubs and balls you need to be a success. Golfers also need golf ball markers!
They place markers behind their balls on putting greens to allow players to pick up and clean their balls without losing their spots. Markers also help fellow golfers by removing the distracting presence of another ball in their line of sight. If a marker is in the way of another golfer’s putting line, it can be removed, as long as it is moved back afterward in accordance with the rules.
So whether you’re marking your ball position or helping out a fellow golfer, you may as well do it in style!
I wonder if they use these in the professional games played on the Disney courses?
This is a wonderful set of four brass golf ball markers. There are many different types of markers to choose from. They can be personalized or embellished with Swarovski crystals, glitz, glitter and divot tools! Or just with some Disney characters.

And one might assume that Donald has just hooked or sliced his way to another over-par round.
Is Goofy winning? Will this putt earn him the Gold Jacket? It likely doesn’t matter for this good natured sportsman!
For information about golf at Walt Disney World, check out my post on a Holiday Planner book that features the sport at the resort! To conclude, I would just like to say: “FORE!”
FUN FACTS: “Fore” was originally a Scot’s interjection that was used to warn anyone standing or moving in the flight of an errant golf ball. The mention of the term in an 1881 British Golf Museum indicates that the term was in use at least as early as that period. One might assume that a golfer like Donald Duck would use this term often.
