Indicator Ball Takes Mystery Out of Pin Placements

For all the technological wizardry on display in golf, there’s still a little room for simple, old-school equipment. Bayco Golf’s pin placement indicator balls are a prime example.

For the course whose carts don’t have GPS units, indicator balls are a great way to tell players exactly where each flag is located on the green. If the pin is in the center, the ball goes in the middle of the flagstick. If the pin is on the back third of the green, move the ball to the top third of the stick; do the opposite for a front-of-green placement.

Indicator balls allow for more precision than the classic color-coded flag system, especially if you’ve got extra-large greens. For instance, let’s say one green is 40 yards deep. A blue flag may tell the golfer the pin is in the back portion, but that leaves a lot of leeway. The indicator ball can be placed farther up the stick to show a pin near the back edge, or moved closer to the middle for a pin that’s just past center.

You know what they say: It’s a game of inches. Your golfers, especially the better ones, will appreciate the finely detailed info.

The placement balls are perfect for greens where the surface is hidden from the fairway, as on uphill holes, and greens with slopes that can fool the golfer’s eye. How many times have you played a shot thinking the pin was in the front, only to arrive at the green and find it 20 paces past your perfect approach?

Golf is frustrating enough without moments like those. Our pin placement indicator balls remove the guesswork and make the game a little less confounding.
