The time honored tradition of military challenge coins has seeped into civilian life and onto the golf course. Most often, the challenge coins found on the golf course include a removable ball marker. This allows the golfer to properly mark the position of his golf ball in a very unique way. The challenge coins used by golfers are durable and are sometimes custom made and often sold or given away at various golf events and tournaments. Golf Challenge Coins are often used as a fundraising item. Young golfers sell the coins in an effort to raise money for an upcoming golf camp he wishes to attend. A percentage of his sales are then applied to the cost of the camp.
Challenge coins that circulate in the golf community come in various shapes, sizes and colors and can even be custom designed. For this reason, many golfers not only utilize the functionality of the challenge coin on the course, but also enjoy collecting them. For this reason, golf challenge coins make excellent gifts for any golf enthusiast.
Golfers often use the military time honored tradition of challenging another golfer to produce their challenge coin. When the challenge is presented at what many golfers affectionately refer to as the 19th Hole, anyone not producing their challenge coin is required to purchase “a beverage of choice” to the challenger. However, if the one challenged produces his coin, he is the recipient of his favorite drink, compliments of the challenger. The fun and bragging rights that come with this time honored military tradition finds the golfer and his challenge coins both on and off the course.
