How to Make a Golf Ball Display Case

By Steve Silverman

You have just had one of the most memorable rounds of golf of your life. You have just shot a career-low round and on the 15th hole, a 182-yard par 3, you hit a perfect 3-iron and the ball landed 10 feet from the hole and rolled in--your first hole in one. After buying a round of drinks for everyone at the bar, you want to make a display case for the ball so you can save it for posterity.


Difficulty: Moderately Challenging
Step 1
Secure the base of your golf ball display case. Cut a piece of green felt to fit the bottom of your base and glue it with rubber cement.
Step 2
Place your golf ball inside the acrylic golf ball holder. Secure it with a golf tee replica and rubber cement. Hold the tee and the golf ball in place for five minutes.
Step 3
Secure the acrylic golf ball holder to the wood base with rubber cement. Use four stripes of rubber cement on the outside edge of the acrylic ball holder. Hold it in place for five minutes.
Step 4
Place a metal tab inside a metal engraving kit. Punch in your name, the golf course, the hole and what club you used on the particular date you made your hole in one.
Step 5
Glue the tab to the front of the display with rubber cement. Use four stripes of rubber cement so the tab stays in place. Hold it in place for five minutes.

Tips & Warnings

Have your scorecard laminated and put it up next to the display case.
