I keep a "research journal" of all the courses I have played. Others may refer to this as a "scrapbook" but trust me, it's a journal!

Overtime I play a new course, I add a new page. I add a scorecard and write notes about the course; memorable holes, tips for myself the next time I play, my score, even things like parking tips and good food at bar. I update the pages with new scores if I replay the course.

Love seeing old topics resurrected, gives those of us who weren't around back then a chance to join in.

 

I think pencils, plastic divot tools, tees etc are fine and we (speaking for courses) expect players to take those and have no problem with it.   I personally like to keep scorecards or yardage books from courses I've been to. 

 

On a related note, before golf I was a Hotel General Manager.  My OWN mother came to stay in my hotel for a week to visit.  The morning she was leaving, i went up to help her with her luggage.   In the bathroom I saw her makeup kit stuffed with at least 10 to 12 bottles of lotion and mouthwash each.    I said "MOM...WTH?"    She said, oh those are the things you tell want guests to take, because it's free advertising!!    I laughed and asked her exactly what TV Channel or Magazine was she going to be promoting my hotel on?    I was of course giving  her a hard time, but she completely thought nothing of stocking up the whole week and taking them all home....I had to shake my head.

I'm normally a scorecard/pencil guy. I generally have 3 or 4 pencils in my bag. Always good reminder of a different course when I tee off or am scoring the first hole of the day at my home course.

I'll buy a course logo ball and take a blank extra scorecard home as a momento for new courses. In the past, I've taken such large beaver pelts that I joked I could of taken them home and re-soded my front lawn, lol.

I collect pencils from every course I play. Started when I was young and didn't want to buy a logo ball. Have a nice display for it to (that isn't currently hanging up). I think everyone should take a memento.


Knoxville, TN. 6HDCP, TM R11S driver. G25 3 wood, burner Rescue. Ping I irons, Rac 52,56,60 & 2ball odyssey putter


Same here although I haven't dropped the $50 on a display yet. Side note some courses I played before I started collecting have been awesome and mailed pencils to me after the fact. PGA National was awesome about this.

I'll usually take a scorecard and a pencil, but that's about it.

I'll grab a ball or poker chip.! I have a display case with all the logo balls from places I've played but that's about it. Some of the nicer courses I may do a towel or headcover but that's about it.

Do like the idea of scorecards though. Has never thought of that.

I like yardage books, but even when I travel and hit up a course, very few have them

Yep, ran into the same problem which is why I switched to just scorecards and logo balls.

So as a teacher I constantly get the question "Mr. Steele, can I borrow a pencil?"
I stock my pencil mug with golf pencils ✏️ I figure that I paid for them in the green/cart fee and I only take one or two
