This is a replacement Golf Ball Marker that snaps onto your golf glove. I lost my marker and thought I might try to print one. Attached are two different designs; one with a smiley face :) and one plain one. I also included the original Inventor file.

I quickly designed the button snap feature and it was a tight fit after coming off the printer. I just slightly filed it to the point where it was not too tight but tight enough not to fall off.

I created the parts in AutoDesk Inventor, so I posted the .ipt file along with the two .stl files.

  • STL file with Smiley Face: Golf Marker Button-Smile Vers.stl
  • STL file with flat plain surface: Golf Marker Button-Blank Vers.stl
  • Inventor file: Golf Marker Button-Smile Vers.ipt

**Caution Notice: This golf device will not improve your golf game in any way ;)


1.) Print (or Modify and then Print).
2.) After cleaning up the part you may need to file the button down to get the snap to work correctly.
3.) Go Golfing!!

My prints were made on an Afinia UP! PP3DP printer.

I have had the glove for a while; actually I can’t remember when or where I got it.  Out of curiosity I Googled it and they do have them still.  Looks like I need to round off the top face of my design more.


Clever! I remember this being a feature of gloves when I was younger. Is it my imagination? If not, do they still exist this way?
