They help to keep the turf in good condition. Golfers often cause damage to the grass as they play, often by scraping up turf by swinging golf clubs too close to the ground, or by the balls landing on the putting green. If left unfixed, these ‘divots’ can require more extensive repairs. The golf divot tool has two prongs that are used to carefully push the edges of the mark back towards the centre. This is done from the outside edges until the gap is closed.
This is the recommended technique to use so there is no damage caused to the root structure of the grass. What makes a golf divot tool one of the most useful of golf course accessories is that it is small enough to be easily carried in a pocket or on a key ring. Then, any golfer who notices a divot can repair it as they walk the course. The two prongs on the divot tool fold back into the casing for safety when not in use, and this can be personalised with a message, a joke or even a brand or logo. For golf course accessories that make great gifts, the golf divot tool is ideal.
