How important is a good golf ball? Short answer, yes. However we don’t want to be hitting our precious golf balls into the water and feel like we are throwing out money away.
Golf balls for beginners handicap 30+
As a beginner we all have been there when we just look at water or out of bounds and our ball gravitates towards it every time and another ball lost. What should we look for? The best feedback of golf balls for this level is the Callaway Supersoft this gives the player great feel off the club with longer distances whilst still being able add spin to the ball on shorter shots around the green. Approx. cost $31-$35 per dozen.
Golf Balls for intermediate15-30 handicaps
If you’re a regular golfer and looking for a cost effective way to play without giving up control the Titleist Tour Soft is my best recommendation. The biggest difference compared to the ones recommended for beginners is gaining a lot more control and spin around the greens whilst still keeping the budget down compared to the premium golf balls. Approx. $50 per dozen
Golf balls for advanced golfers handicap <15
My number 1 recommendation is the Pro V1 it is the most played golf ball on the professional tours. The golf ball offers the best feel off the club face, penetrating trajectory and exceptional control around the greens. Approx. Price $75 per dozen.
Ultimately try out a few different golf balls for yourself and recognise what you like in terms of feel, sound and looks. Additionally you can get golf balls in a wide variety of colours these days and customize them to suit your personality.
