No, an OB marker indicates the boundary of the course and as such cannot be moved. Red and yellow stakes can be moved though.

What does OB mean in golf?

This stands for out of bounds. It is an area of the golf course or off the golf course which is not in play.

There is a one shot penalty for hitting out of bounds.

In golf if you hit OB how far can you move your ball away from the hole?

Out of bounds is the strictest rule in golf, and often the harshest. You have to replay the ball from the exact same place you just played that shot from. So if you are on the tee and hit one out of bounds, you tee it up again and you are now playing your third shot off the tee (This includes the one shot penalty). If you are in the fairway and hit it out of bounds, you replay it from as close as possible to where the original was hit from.
