The Republican governor’s campaign recently posted the branded golf balls, whose packaging also includes the phrase ‘hold the line,’ in his online store
In a video promoting the merchandise on his site, the camera pans in on the ball with the governor’s name printed on it.
The ball is hit and flying through the air as it reads ‘but not in Florida…’ and the ball rolls into into the packaging that reads ‘Fortified in Florida’ on the bottom.
DeSantis’ online store also features ‘Don’t tread on Florida’ merch with an alligator in shallow water. The store has bumper stickers, T-shirts and flags, as well as ‘Keep Florida free’ merchandise.
DeSantis has promoted the golf balls, which are on sale for $19.95 and in limited stock, according to the store, in a campaign email that says he is ‘standing firm and setting an example for the rest of the nation in defending freedom as it comes under assault has become par for the course with Governor DeSantis,’ Floridapolitics.com reported.

The merch has garnered mixed reactions online.
‘I guess if Ron doesn’t have a pair of his own………’ one person tweeted.
Another person, who was clearly not amused, wrote: ‘ I’d take a sledgehammer to these! Great product!… if you can get them on clearance.’
But others appreciated the humor.
‘That’s my governor! He’s got balls…’ someone joked.
‘A real man has the honor, integrity and COJONES to rise above the conspiracy peddlers and protect his constituents,’ another person wrote.
The Republican governor, who is running for re-election in 2023, has been one of the loudest opponents against President Joe Biden’s COVID vaccine mandates.
In early September, Biden imposed a vaccine mandate on federal employees and health care workers whose facilities receive Medicare or Medicaid dollars.
Biden also directed his Labor Department’s Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) to draw up a rule requiring all private companies with 100 or more employees to either have them all fully vaccinated by January 4, 2022 – or force them to submit to weekly COVID-19 testing.
Along with suing the Biden administration over the vaccine requirements for federal contractors, DeSantis unveiled a series of bills aimed at outlawing the private company mandates earlier this month.
On Thursday, the governor trolled President Biden by signing a bill banning his vaccine mandate from going into effect at an event in the city of Brandon, Florida.
The town name is a reference to the chant ‘Let’s go Brandon’, which has become synonymous in pro-Trump crowds with the phrase ‘F*** Joe Biden.’
