Abstract/Contents:"This study examined the effects of an educational sign prompt and a weekly lottery on golfer's repairing of ballmarks on the greens of an 18-hole public golf course. The educational sign prompt contained: (1) an explanation and photographs of ballmarks, (2) three recommended steps to repair ballmarks, and (3) a request for help to repair ballmarks. During the weekly lottery, golfers could receive a raffle ticket to win a free round of golf from a weekly dawn if they were spotted repairing a ballmark by golf course staff. Both the educational sign prompt and the weekly lottery seemed to be equally effective in decreasing unrepaired ballmarks on greens and both were favorably received by golfers. Since completion of the study, the educational sign prompt wad adopted by the golf course."
