My father, John Bailey, a native of Sebring Florida and the founder of Bailey Enterprise now known as ColorFlex Inc. invented our patented flexible yardage/distance markers in1990 to help speed up play and assist golfers who were searching for sprinkler heads and fairway template markers.
My father retired as a Civil Engineer working for the Corp of Army Engineer and then the United States Air Force. When he retired from Civil Service in 1972 he became an avid golfer and became very frustrated searching for yardage markers in the golf course. He knew there had to be a better way.
Being the engineer that he was and a great problem solver he came up with the idea of a flexible marker that would be maintenance and player friendly. After several years and many sample markers our star shaped marker was born.
Over the years we have made some improvements such as the UV protector added to the material to keep the colors from fading. We have added two additional colors (green and orange) to support First Tee and play it forward.
It became a business my husband Charlie and I took over about ten years later as my father was then 86. Charlie and I are proud to now own Color-Flex Inc. and keep my father's dream alive. We love our flexible golf distance markers and enjoy sharing them with golf courses all over the world.
Thank You for viewing our web site and we hope to be on your course soon.
