Finally sinking that hole-in-one is an incomparable experience, and it’s something that doesn’t come around that often—even for the most experienced golfers. It requires a perfect combination of luck, skill and innumerable other environmental factors that will likely never play out in exactly the same way again.
A hole-in-one is one of life’s truly unique and memorable moments, and is estimated to happen to only one in about 8,000 lifetime golfers. It’s like joining an elite club. And it’s something that deserves to be commemorated.
A great way to celebrate this accomplishment is by commissioning a custom lapel pin to mark the occasion. This can be something you wear to golf outings and social gatherings to share the experience with your friends and loved ones—and it might just strike a little fear into your competition out on the links!
Hole-in-one lapel pins are a trend a lot of clubhouses and pro shops are picking up on. It’s a great way for the best of the best to identify one another and relate the story of that one perfect shot. It creates a sense of community and honor for those individuals who, if just for one moment, played the game as perfectly as it can be played.
Because sinking a hole-in-one is such a rare and fleeting occasion, a lot of people prefer to order pins made of gold or other precious materials. Clubhouses and pro shops might prefer to buy pins made from cheaper materials, if they decide to make a bulk order and hand them out as people make the shots.
Other businesses choose to avoid this bulk expense by having a custom design picked out just for the special occasion, and offering to have the pins pressed specifically for individuals who make a hole-in-one. This way, it’s up to the individual as to what type of material he or she would like to pay for. In addition, players can have gemstones inset into their pins for every subsequent hole-in-one they make.
Custom lapel pins are a perfect way to commemorate any number of important life events, and for a devoted golfer, there are few thrills greater than the ever-elusive hole-in-one. If you’ve achieved this milestone, make it known with a lapel pin all your own.
