looks like you have 2 ball markers and 2 divot repair tools- putting tools.

Most likely a golf tee set given out at some corporate or educational event. Swag junk.

The two small round discs are ball markers, used on the putting green. When you land on the green or make a putt, especially if you ball is close to the cup and possibly in the way of another golfers line you place one of the small round buttons right behind your ball to “mark it’s place” and then pick your ball up. When your turn to putt comes agagin you place your ball right back down, directly in front of your ball marker, let go of the ball then pick up the marker and put back in your pocket.
The long two prong tool is a divot repair tool. This is used when you make your final approach shot to the green and you hit a high arching ball up in the air and it land down hard and solid on the green. You walk up to the spot where your ball first hit, especially if the green is alittle wet and push the tool down into the grass on 2 or 3 sides of that ball depression your ball just made and push down and twist a little, thus pulling the compressed dirt and gress back up to level and “repaing” the hole-depression you just made. After fluffing up the turff, then slightly tap it a little with the edge of your putter to “pat” it back down smooth. Sort of like repairing a “pot hole” in a road.
The third tool you have is a spike tool [wrench]. When you clean your shoe spikes, many times a golfer needs to unscrew the spikes and clean them and the threaded studs that they screw onto. The two small points fit into two small holes that are on standard spikes, but metal and the newer soft spikes. You use this tool like a wrench. Insert the points into the holes in the spikes and twist counter clock wise to remove, then after you replace the spikes after cleaning and have finger tightened, you use the tool to “tighten” and snug the spike back up.
The divot tool and ball markers are carried in a golfers pocket during a round. The spike tool is used only at home or the club house to clean your shoes. When finished, everything is stored back in the pouch and the whole thing is usually kept in one of the many side zippered areas on the side of a golf bag.
Hopefully this gives you both key words and a complete description for that area.
P.S. they don’t go for much. Most golf gloves come with a snap on ball marker on the wrist section of the glove. Snap it off, use it, then snap it back on the back of your glove. Purists usually use a dime, place it down and then tap it on the top with their ball to push it level with the grass. It seems to not deflect your opponenets ball as much as some of the snap markers. And some purists complain about rounded bumpy markers and if they miss a putt will blame your marker if it is too thick.
Create a divot and not repair it, everbody will yell at you, not clean your spikes, when your wife will yell at you. That’s why most golfers just leave their shoes in the garage. easier than cleaning.
As Jay says, many, many corporations hand these out at Charity and Corporate golf outings, usually imprinted with their company logo. Some golfers collect ball markers, but mostly for large corps. like Shell Oil, Coca-Cola, Mobile Oil, Buick and things like that. They also collect logo golf balls and display on a wall rack. Sure you have seen many of them.
Unless this is something from a tournament where someone like Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Bobby Jones [or any of the great hall of famers used], then not worth much.

Thanks so much to everyone who answered, especially Mike for that wealth of information! I’ve never played golf that didn’t involve a giant lion’s mouth so had no clue. Really appreciate the help…this kind of information always comes in handy in the future plus keeps my eBay job interesting!
