While having a great logo on your golf ball can be an attention calling status symbol in the eyes of other players, golf balls are about more than just appearance. Having the right golf ball can dramatically help your game. Indeed, for the golf professional, choosing the golf ball is as important as choosing the right club because golf ball designs provide different playing characteristics.

When choosing golf balls, here are some tips:

  • design - golf balls have characteristics that can complement a player's ability and shortcomings. If you need distance but are willing to give up a ball's "stickiness" on the green, buy one designed for speed. If your shots are hooking, slicing, or climbing too much, a ball designed to reduce spin will help. If, on the other hand, distance isn't a problem and spin is what you want in order to get height so that you can "drop the ball on the green," choose a ball that maximizes spin.
  • durability - once the cover of a golf ball is nicked or cut, it looses its aerodynamic characteristics; thus, a ball that can endure repeated hits of the club will lead to a better game. Surlyn is the material used in most balls and should be the standard by which you compare other materials.
  • visibility & appearance - although golf balls traditionally are white for playing and green, yellow, or orange for practice, there is a rainbow of colors available. Fluorescent colors have the advantage of being more easily located when the ball strays off the fairway. However, avoid them unless you are running a miniature golf course, they carry a large logo, or you want people to think you stole them from the practice bucket. We suggest you stick with white for good visibility and professional appearance.
