Ten golf-related Elf on the Shelf ideas
Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Surely, you've heard about the Elf on the Shelf. You know, the little elf that helps Santa Claus with his naughty-and-nice list by flying back and forth from the North Pole to homes around the world each night to report on the day's events.
By morning, the elf has returned from the North Pole and is in a new spot around the house (i.e., on top of the fireplace, hanging from the chandelier, etc.)
Then there are the golf ideas: the elf in the sink, cleaning the golf clubs; the elf above the washer, washing all dad's dirty golf towels; and, of course, the elf swinging a miniature 8-iron or carrying an elf-sized golf bag.
Here are 10 more creative Elf on the Shelf ideas for golf fans:

1. The Camilo Villegas
If your munchkin is a fan of Spiderman, then this idea is for you. Your elf also will get a great core workout by day's end, too.
2. The Happy Gilmore
Just give your elf a miniature Boston Bruins jersey and a hockey stick. The elf isn't allowed to speak or move during the day, so you shouldn't have to worry about any foul language or other antics.
3. The Michelle Wie
We all know how silly Michelle Wie looks with her new "tabletop" putting stance, but an elf doing it? Now, that's funny.
4. Sergio in a tree
Remember when Sergio Garcia hit a golf ball from up in a tree at Bay Hill? Well, now your elf can do the same.
5. Poppy's Pond jump
Your elf has just won the Kraft Nabisco Championship Pro-Elf event. Now it's time for a celebratory jump into Poppy's Pond, aka the bathroom sink.
6. The Loudmouth
If your elf is partial to its normal all-red outfit, then maybe this one isn't for you. But if not, just dress your elf in some of the loudest, most colorful golf attire you can find.
7. Signing the scorecard
Your elf just carded a 59. Now, he just has to make sure he signed the scorecard correctly.
8. Golf's historic holes
Got a favorite golf hole, or stretch of holes? Re-create memorable layouts from Augusta's Amen Corner, PGA National's Bear Trap and Doral's Blue Monster, and give your elf the tee time of a lifetime.
9. Bubba's Hovercraft
Your elf needs a cart to get around his favorite golf course. Why not give him a hovercraft golf cart? You can even throw a pink driver in the bag, a la Bubba Watson.
10. The Tiger Woods
Your elf may need some help with this one, but give him a putter and position his other arm up in the air to re-create Tiger's iconic fist pump. While your elf probably doesn't have Woods' game, he does pull off the color red just as well, if not better.
