1919 Pebble Beach Ball Marker

Price Includes Shipping Via the USPS Within the 50 States.

In the early part of the 20th century, Samuel F.B. Morse was challenged with making the Pebble Beach area a profitable and attractive real estate investment in order to find a buyer. He decided to create, as an attraction, a one-of-a-kind golf course with unsurpassed scenic beauty and an element of difficulty that would always be challenging and never conquered. Morse convinced his board that the course could be maintained by sheep and designed at no cost by two amateur golfers—Jack Neville and Douglas Grant. Although neither Neville nor Grant had any experience at course design, the pair designed a championship course that has seen remarkably few changes over the years. Perhaps the greatest change occurred in 1921-22 when William Herbert Fowler assisted by Arthur Vincent and Mark Daniels transformed #18 from a 379 yard par 4 into a 535 yard par 5 to create the best finishing hole in golf.

This ball marker commemorates Pebble Beach's birth date with an original 1919 wheat penny and is encased in steel inscribed with the course's name. Each ball marker measures 1 7/16" and comes in a protective, drawstring pouch.
