Custom Golf Ball Markers

You don’t have to own a private golf club or host a charity golf tournament to enjoy a

personalized golf ball marker.

Groups of friends who get together on the weekends like to design their own custom golf ball markers with inside jokes hidden in the artwork or memorable dates etched into the coin face. Some companies give their employees custom ball markers as a hint to get out of the office and enjoy themselves (and promote the business). If you’re looking for a fun way to stand out on the putting green, a custom ball marker is a great place to start.

Stand Out on the Putting Green

Stand Out on the Putting Green

After you’ve landed an amazing shot onto the green, the last thing you want is to incur a penalty because someone forgot to replace their ball with a ball maker. While the greens are littered with cheap plastic markers or quarters pulled from pockets, isn’t it better to play your game with your own customized ball maker? Next time you go for an afternoon on your favorite course, bring your set of custom golf ball markers and turn heads with more than just your chip shots.

Getting Started on Your Personalized Golf Ball Markers

Odds are that putting isn’t your favorite part golf, however, there are few things more satisfying than sinking a 16-foot putt for par or even landing a birdie. Sometimes the only way to make a shot like that happen is to mark your ball with your go-to ball marker, measure out your shot, and take a breath before you’re ready. A lot of golfers have custom golf ball markers that add a little personality to their game and act as a familiar totem, helping them keep a level head and prepare for the perfect shot.

Choosing a Style of Custom Golf Ball Marker

There are two main styles of golf ball marker coins that we help design. The first is a stand-alone golf ball marker. These are similar to one-sided challenge coins, but they’re usually smaller than your average custom challenge coin. Golf has no official rules that outline a standard size for golf ball markers, but they are usually no larger than a quarter. The personalized golf ball markers we help design are usually around 1” in size.

Even though custom ball markers are small, our production team has the ability to create highly detailed coin molds with intricate artwork. Whether you’re planning to include a small version of your team’s logo or some other form of custom artwork, we will take special care to get even the smallest details just right in the coin design.

The second style of golf ball marker is a challenge coin with a custom golf ball marker insert. These coins look just like your everyday challenge coins, but the center of the design is held in place with a magnetic insert. This means that you can remove the coin golf ball markers by simply pressing down on the bottom edge of the marker insert so the edge will pop over the lip of the coin holder and slide right out.

Challenge coins custom made with magnetic inserts are slightly more expensive than your average golf challenge coins because they require two different coin molds. One mold is used to create the magnetic insert ball marker, while another is used to make the coin holder.

Something else to consider is that the magnetic insert will be made from aluminum, while the rest of the coin will be minted with brass, zinc or steel. Aluminum is the only magnetic option. Since the metals are different, there may be a slight inconsistency in the color of the metal plating. However, all of our custom coins are made with the highest quality materials and the techniques that have made us the best free online coin designer on the market.

The best part of working with any challenge coin maker is crafting the perfect design from scratch. Since golf challenge coins with magnetic inserts need two coin molds, you have the opportunity to customize two different coins at once. Customizing both sides of a set of custom golf ball marker inserts adds another layer of personality to a design. Flipping them over in the coin holder will change up the design completely, so it’s like having two different designs for one coin.

Common Challenge Coin Questions

A challenge coin is usually a metal coin or medallion, bearing an organization's insignia, emblem or logo and carried by the organization's members. Traditionally, challenge coins were used by the military and displayed by service men and women to prove exclusive membership when challenged, and to enhance the military units' morale.

Historically, challenge coins were awarded by military unit commanders in recognition of special achievement made by a member of the unit. They are also known to be exchanged and traded during recognition visits to different international organizations, bases and service tours. These coins have been heavily collected by active and retired service members and law enforcement personnel for years.

Modern challenge coins are made in a variety of sizes and often include popular culture references such as superheroes as well as known characters in a parody. Many companies today are using them to build morale in teams, link people with similar interests and even to promote their brand. Challenge coin designs today are pushing the boundary of what a challenge coin could mean or be used for. One thing is for sure, personalized coins further strengthen the sense of bond within people that both give and receive them.

Challenge coins are often used as a physical token or symbol to represent membership to an organization, unit, or team.

Challenge coins also serve as a lasting personal award for anyone that has received one. Since they are custom and long lasting, challenge coins serve well to commemorate the time and experience put in to overcome overwhelming obstacles or the extraordinary effort and sacrifice needed to reach a given achievement. These keepsake coins become a life long reminder of the achievements made.

Challenge coins can also be used as a token to commemorate a special event or anniversary. You can view some of our commemorative coins here.

Our bravest first responder services also have a history of using challenge coins. Whether for fire departments, emergency medical technicians or law enforcement officers, challenge coins have been used to award bravery, acts of heroism and department camaraderie.

Many companies today have been started by veterans, or are veteran owned and are beginning to use the challenge coin tradition to help represent accomplishments in their businesses. This modern approach to awarding challenge coins has garnered some criticism from the traditionalists. Signature Coins has been making challenge coins for 20 plus years, and we see more and more companies joining in on awarding custom challenge coins to customers, staff, and volunteers. They are using them to build morale in teams, link people with similar interests and even to promote their brand or charities.

Generally speaking you give someone a challenge coin when you want to honor them for a good deed or for their hard work.

Challenge coins still play a major role in the military today, much like a "Thank you Plus" or "Great Job Plus". In the armed forces not every action rates an honorable medal or certificate, for those moments when someone is deserving of more than a thank you, awarding them with a challenge coin fills the gap.

As a very simple miltary example. You're out on a 3 day field op. One of your guys or gals busts their butt during a particularly stressful couple hours of it. Shows great attitude, effort, and was overal top notch. If you tried to write it up, it wouldn't "quite" be "award worthy" but definitely deserved "recognition."

Now even if you’re not a veteran or a member of the armed forces, you can still recognize and award someone with custom challenge coins.

You can use challenge coins to reward employees after the completion of a special project or if huge accomplishments have been made company wide. The coin design can be representative of the achievement, the employee or the company goals. Studies show when employees are recognized for a job well done, they feel more satisfied with their job performance, are more likely to reach for higher goals, and are more loyal to their organizations.

Finding the right time and place to give someone a challenge coin can be, well, a bit challenging.

  • Military tradition has a few ways of approaching this honor. One being "The Secret Handshake" where commanding officers, department officials or the president himself would shake a soldiers hand and "slip" them the coin via the handshake. Transferring the coin shouldn’t be dramatic or obvious, like a quiet wink and a nod, this honor is more personal to the people giving and receieving the award and less ceremonial. Although a bit more obvious, another military tradition is to hand them out in front of a formation or during a meeting, but it's more commonly done one on one.

  • As more civilians and businesses use challenge coins, they have taken a more ceremonious and inclusive approach to awarding them. When looking to give a challenge coin to an employee or team member most businesses will do it during a team meeting. Some businesses have even integrated their employee award recognition into their annual and quarterly ceremonies. Awarding their employees in front of others can be a great way to show the rest of the team that you too can be "recognized" if the effort is there.

  • Modern marketers are also finding that custom challenge coins make for great business cards, so many high end service providers, such as lawyers, accountants and commercial developers are now giving their custom coins out as a means of promoting themselves or their business offerings.

Challenge coins typically cost $3.00 -$5.00 per coin for a full production run of 100 coins generally speaking.

More specifically though, it depends. Challenge coin pricing is dependent on a variety of factors including size, quantity, and coloration. Your organization’s insignia or logo, as well as the brand standards surrounding it, will often dictate coloration. The level of complexity, industry standards, and personal preference will dictate the size of the coin.
