As I’ve said in previous articles, I’ve been playing golf since I was five years old. I talked about the games you should play and my thoughts on what equipment a beginner golfer should pick up. I saw an article on golfweek.com about affordable golf balls. We are now going through difficult times. No one should have to give up something they love to do because of a lack of funding. The site lists seven different types of balls ranging from $25 and under per dozen. I’ve always said that just because you see a pro golfer use one type of ball on TV doesn’t mean the same will happen to your game. Beginner players shouldn’t spend $50-60 on balls Titleist. For me, if you lose them all for one round, that wouldn’t be good.

I point out to you that I have not tried all the balls that are listed on the site. I will give you my best recommendations. The first mentioned is the Bridgestone E6 Ball. I can say that past experiences with Bridgestone balls have all been good. For me, I got the same performance as the premium balls. The only thing I have to mention would be durability. Most new golf clubs have very sharp grooves, especially around the corners. The bullet shell is easily scratched after a while. This ball is $24 a dozen and it’s worth it. This company now manufactures the ball played by Tiger Woods. These balls are said to be set up for moderate swing speed players. This is a softball that is made to perform better at a cheaper price.

The next mentioned is the Callaway Warbird or Super Soft. The Warbird design is one of the first balls Callaway got into when they started making golf balls. What I like about the Super Soft ball is that it comes in several colors. Who doesn’t want to have color instead of the simple white balls we grew up playing with? I like Callaway balls because they work well. These balls have been said to provide a high launch angle, which means more distance. This will help with all the clubs in the bag. These balls cost between $18 and $25 per dozen.

The next ball mentioned by the site is the Maxfli Softfli. I have never played this ball. This ball costs about $20 a dozen. The ball offers durability, a soft feel, less spin and more distance. Another good reason to try this ball.

The ball which is mentioned after is Pinnacle Rush & Sweet. Pinnacle has been making balls for a long time. When I first started playing golf, I used balls made by Pinnacle. These balls come in 15 per pack instead of 12 and the price is $20. So that means that for the same price as a dozen, you get three extra balls. This is the special Rush edition which is designed for longer ball flights but is soft. Both balls are white or yellow.

The next ball mentioned is the Srixon soft touch. Here’s another ball I’ve played with a lot in the 30+ years I’ve played. These balls work well around the green. The cost is $23 per dozen. It comes in green, red and orange apart from white and yellow.

The last two are the Titleist TruFeel and Wilson Staff Duo. Many people know that Titleist is probably the most popular ball on many tours around the world. According to the website, these are more popular than the Pro V1 and Pro V1X. These are about half the price of these balls. They work almost the same as more expensive balls. The cost is $25 per dozen. Like Pinnacle, Wilson has been making balls for a long time. The Duo Soft goes longer and straighter. These balls cost around $23 per dozen. I’ve never used them so I can’t tell you how they work. I have used Wilson balls in the past and had decent results with them. I’ve used just about every Titleist ball on the market so I’ve had good luck with them.

Ultimately it comes down to you, the player. A player doesn’t have to spend a lot of money on all the golf equipment to enjoy the game. I have a friend of mine, Adam Mangold, who says it’s all about having fun. It says you can get a cheap ball, maybe one of the ones I listed above. As I mentioned, don’t go out to expensive clubs until you’re further into the game. I didn’t get my first real set until I was a teenager. I would recommend one of the balls above to have a good time and not spend a ton of money. With that, go out and play the great game of golf and play the equipment that best suits your game.
