Used Golf Balls
If you golf, chances are you’ve gone
through your share of balls. They seem to get lost all the
time, and the costs mount quickly. Even the best golfers routinely
lose balls, and for the average duffer, these “misplaced”
golf balls can quickly become an expensive addition to the
Used golf balls that are in great condition and ready to play
can be purchased in bulk over the internet. There are many
companies that sell used balls, usually in dozens. Different
companies have different grading systems but they are all
Most sites describe some sort of quality assurance sorting,
so that the balls are graded. Balls are sorted into various
categories and sold by the dozen.
Top grade used golf balls are often called Grade A or Grade
1, one or two sites listed them as Grade AAA. They are usually
described as like new. Many customers have commented that
these balls are often indistinguishable from the new ones,
and can be subsequently lost just as quickly as those right
out of the sleeve. These are usually described as near perfect
with a slight blemish or mark.
Slightly less perfect balls are Grade B or Grade 2. These
have more than one mark, but play like new. Accordingly, the
price is a bit less than the near perfect ones.
Finally, there is a third grade called Grade C or 3. Occasionally
the site will go ahead and call them range balls. These balls
are more used, with several marks and blemishes, but would
be suitable for range play or practice rounds. These are even
less expensive than the others.
Make sure that your site specifies that there are no “X out”
or manufacturer rejects. You should be receiving slightly
used, but good balls. Also, you may want to inquire if the
site you have chosen allows water balls. I’d avoid these if
Check with your local golf club as well. Sometimes local clubs
hold sales of used balls to clear their inventories as well.
You may be able to buy back some of the balls you lost last
Finally, compare price and shipping costs on your used golf
balls. Most shipping charges seem to run between $5.95 per
dozen and $7.95 per dozen, but verify in advance. You should
also be able to get a significant shipping discount for orders
of more than one dozen.
Shopping for used golf balls can be a great way to cut the
expenses of your golfing habit. Before you hit the links,
try purchasing some practice balls you won’t mind losing!
