A Brief History
Golfballs.com was started in 1995, as a purely virtual business. Initially no
inventory was carried and we only offered a limited selection of used golf
balls. Over time we learned that the only way to service the customer was to
carry a complete selection of inventory yourself, manage customer service
in-house and provide your own fulfillment operations.
To date, Golfballs.com has sold over 5,000,000 golf balls direct to customers
in all 50 states and to 40 different countries. Golfballs.com carries the most
complete selection of new, used, and custom logo golf balls in the world and is
expanding selection monthly.
Custom Logo Ball Printing
In the last twelve months Golfballs.com has invested over $200,000 in state
of the art custom ball printing equipment allowing us unsurpassed efficiency and
printing quality. We have made a major commitment to this aspect of our business
to allow us to provide better service to our customers.
Choosing the Right Type of Ball
Q: How do I choose the right ball for me?
A: With the staggering growth of the golf ball market, it is becoming
paradoxically easier, yet more confusing, to find the golf ball that suits your
game. Whether you're a Low Handicapper or a Weekend Warrior, you now have a
multitude of balls to choose from … which is where the confusion sets in. With
such a huge variety on the market, the task of finding the best ball for you can
be daunting. Sure, even the best of us fall prey to clever advertisements that
strongly imply that yes, we too can play like the pros … but choosing a ball
because your favorite golfer uses it will no more make you Tiger Woods as will a
tube of Cover Girl lipstick make the average girl look like Cindy Crawford. The
trick is to first identify the qualities you look for in a golf ball. Once
you've done this, you can then focus on matching these qualities up with the
Are you looking for a golf ball that gives you distance, spin or a little bit
of both (Spin/Distance)?
Unfortunately when you choose one of these characteristics, you have to
sacrifice a little of the other.
Q: What is a Distance Golf Ball?
A: Distance Golf Balls are usually two-piece which consists of a core and
cover. The core is made up of a highly resilient rubber compound blended with
additives to achieve maximum distance. The cover of the golf ball is made of
Surlyn, which is a durable material that is very tough to cut even with the
worst of shots. (For mid to high handicap golfers.)
Q: Why is Distance better than Spin?
- Straighter ball flight
- Shorter approach shots to the green
- Very durable (Does not cut easily.)
Q: What is a Spin Ball?
A: Spin Golf Balls are usually three-piece which consists of a rubber ball
that may or may not be liquid filled (core), wound rubber bands (mantle) and a
soft cover (usually balata, urethane or elastomer). These soft covers allow the
golf ball to stay on the clubface longer, which produces high spin rates. (For
low to mid handicap golfers)
Q: Why is Spin better than Distance?
- Great for shot stopping control especially when there are difficult pins
- Excellent feel
- Easier to fade or draw your golf shot when needed
Q: Spin-Distance Combinations
A: Manufacturers are beginning to produce golf balls that give a little bit
of both Distance and Spin. Most Spin/ Distance Golf Balls are two-piece like the
distance ball with the only minor difference being that they put additives into
the surlyn cover to soften it up. These golf balls are not quite as soft as the
spin balls and not as hard as the distance balls. Spin/ Distance Golf Balls meet
you right in the middle. (You may not get quite as much distance as the distance
ball vice versa but it is a great mediator.) The other type of spin/ distance
ball is the multi-layered golf ball. This is a three-piece golf ball except that
it is not wound. The core and mantle are soft rubber compounds that enable the
golf ball to feel as though you are hitting a wound golf ball even though you
aren't. Most multi-layered golf balls also have soft surlyn covers.
Honesty is not a social duty, not a sacrifice for the sake of others, but the
most profoundly selfish virtue man can practice: his refusal to sacrifice the
reality of his own existence to the deluded consciousness of others.
