Last month I polled my readers on if they have a favorite golf course souvenir that the like to purchase as a keepsake at the golf course.
It turns out, Dear Readers, we really don’t. Our preference appears to be “a little of this” and “a little of that.”
The results below confirm that amongst respondents, it was a dead heat between logo golf balls, divot tools, and ball makers. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of a yardage book. Even in these heady days of GPS devices, phone apps, and laser rangefinders, I still prefer to have an overview of a hole from the tee with indicated distances.
Unfortunately, it’s rare that many courses carry a nice yardage book these days. However, on that note, all three state park courses I’ve played this year plus one other privately owned course have provided yardage cards (condensed hole-by-hole illustrations with distances on a bi- or tri-fold card), which has been a pleasant surprise.
*Editors note, after authoring the June question and thinking about golf course souvenirs, I promptly bought the first decent looking golf towel I encountered.
