Cheap Golf Ball Supplier?

Unread postAuthor: Dornep » Sun Sep 09, 2007 8:46 pm

I'm sure this question has been asked before but I couldn't find it with the search so here it is.

Have any of you guys found an online retailer that sells cheap golf balls or range balls. I've found a site that sells range balls for $0.20 a ball but you have to buy 50 dozen balls...


If there's another thread asking the same question point me to it and I will delete this one.

Thanks

Ebay is pretty good. Look for range balls or practice balls. You can get them for $0.11 a ball (including shipping) if you buy 300, not sure about lesser quantities, but I imagine you can still get a pretty good deal.

A lot of courses won't do that because of liabilty reasons, and i know several in my area (and in texas, cali, and arizona) who have already promised the balls to a company(s) that fish them out.
Just sneak in at night and walk around the out a bounds areas and near the driving range, you'll find probably a couple hundred balls easy, and its great excercise. Not that i'm endorsing trespassing or anything, just a little environmental protection....

I used to do that when I was about 12-13,go in the ponds and sell the balls we found for 50cents a piece,we had a crew of about 5 at once and found well over 1000 balls in about 4 hours,and the people that owned the golfcourse didn't care one single bit infact some of them brought balls off us.Hit the golfcourse up for balls for sure,your bound to find a lot.

You could also just go to a 2nd hand store of a Pawn Broker and ask them to do a deal for there crappiest balls,such as 5 for a Dollar etc.

I bought about 100 golfballs at a thrift store.
It was a good deal, considering that I paid nothing;)

How sad:(
Who steals golfballs haha

Wow Trae I thought you were being sarcastic in your first post but now I see you were serious! 500 balls for 8 bucks sounds fairly reasonable :lol: I think I will order about two thousand... :D

@ Locksmith.. I can picture you walking to your car and dropping your golf bag and hundreds of balls rolling everywhere... lmao

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

I have a buddy of mine who used to get paid to do this. Within one week, he gathered enough golf balls to fill 4 milk crates.
