HI all, I run a social golf club and recently we lost our markers for NTP, LD etc. and cant seem to find anywhere to buy new ones. Can anyone point me in the right direction (Sydney)?

A necessary evil. Had one of those things stop my ball a few inches in front of a possible hole in one last year. They always get in the road of someone putting or chipping. Enlightened clubs use tape measures of coloured very flat disks with a small nail in them. Each colour represents men's or women's measurement.

why anyone would put them anywhere on the putting surface is beyond me. why not stick them in the fringe out of the line of play off the tee and mark the ruler on the flagstick. measure with flagstick, mark NTP card at greens edge, move on. or just scrap stupid lucky-dip prizes altogether???????

With out little social group we just put an ol' ball at the top of bit of wire. Sure it would deflect a ball if it hit, so if you need something flat just use something else.

One of our retired members makes ours from galv iron with a nail welded to the back and a quick spray paint. Just slide in a card about 6x8cm. They are left at the point of NTP with player's name. Next one crosses that off and puts his on it. The chances of hitting one from the tee are pretty slim - but then again, we don't have a hundred players going for it.

Ours are a disk with a spike. The disk goes flat on the ground and spike goes in, so it's not possible to stop the ball from its intended line. The name pad is on a neighbouring tree in a protected box, so the paper doesn't get wet.

I am working with the NT government, Golf Australia and a few other orgs. 
I am very proud and close to releasing mid year a NTP marker that we can PuttOvr pitch and run over Plus have advertising sponsorship opportunities. We are using them in my club and both Pro and members love them. They are  simple cheap and work with what we already use and do not get in the road of the ball roll.

I'm curious ... where does a player write their name on your version of the NTP marker?
