A resemblance to eggs is plausible for white golf balls, but
I'm surprised they take yellow golfballs, since yellow is often a
warning colour. Perhaps drawing black lines on a yellow golfball
would be a more effective "threat" display. (Red may also work,
but it would be harder to find the ball against a green background
- partly because of red/green colour-blindness, but also because
red appears dark in green light.)
