Which Ball Should I choose?

Here is a simple guide to help you select the correct golf balls for yourself or as a present for someone else.

We have a huge selection of golf balls for you to choose from all the major golf ball manufacturers. To select the correct golf ball you should consider the durability, feel (compression), spin rate and distance which will be different with every golf ball and manufacturer. If you need help selecting the correct golf ball have a look at the information below or contact us for more details.

What level of golfer are you? Low, middle, high handicapper or a beginner?

In general the quality and performance of golf balls increases the more you pay. Quality budget golf balls start from around £10/box, ideal for beginners or someone with a high handicap. Quality mid range golf balls start from around £15/box and rise to around £30/box for the tour/low handicap golfer.

 

Budget (Beginners): These golf balls are usually 2 piece balls designed for distance and durability. Prices range from £5 - £13 per dozen. 


Mid-Range: We have a large selection which are usually 2 or 3 piece balls. They offer good durability and spin and the prices start from around £13 per dozen.

Premium: These are used by better players and professionals because they have excellent spin rates but they are less durable. Prices start from around £22 per dozen and our most popular is the Titleist ProV1.

Do you prefer distance or do you want a softer feel around the green?

A general rule of thumb is to think about whether you want more distance or more spin. If you hit the ball a long way then go for more spin to help you around the greens, otherwise stick with a distance type ball as this will give you more benefit off the tee.

The 4 major technical factors (not price) in choosing a golf ball are:

Durability: Most of our budget and mid range golf balls are extremely durable. The more expensive tour balls tend to be less durable due to the softer cover giving extra spin.

Feel: Most of our budget golf balls will feel fairly hard and will give exceptional distance. We have a selection of softer mid range golf balls giving more feel around the greens. Our tour/low handicap balls will all feel softer but do vary between product and brands.

Spin Rate: Our tour/low handicap balls offer the highest spin rate which will stop quicker on the greens. Some of our mid range balls spin well and our budget golf balls offer less spin but give more distance.

Flight/Trajectory: The design and cover of a golf ball will determine the launch angle, giving a higher/lower flight.

What time of year is it? In the summer use a softer, spin ball when distance is not such a problem, but in the winter use a distance ball as both the temperature and the wetter fairways will take considerable distance off your tee shots. Furthermore, in the winter balls tend to stop easier on the greens thus negating the need for a softer golf ball. In winter it might be worth considering using a coloured golf ball making it easier to find on a frosty morning.
