Lake Golf Balls: Great Money Saver For Regular Golf Players

Posted by best4balls on June 23rd, 2015

If you love golf, you may be spending too much money on golf balls without even realizing it—especially if you regularly practise to refine your style. You can always buy cheap golf balls online, but their quality cannot be guaranteed and some of them might negatively affect your performance. Your best alternative is to buy lake golf balls, which have been recycled and classified as 'refinished' or 'lake'. These golf balls offer the best value for money. 

What are Lake Golf Balls?

These refer to golf balls retrieved from the lakes and man-made bodies of water in golf courses. Many of these golf balls are almost brand new and still in good condition, so it’s a big waste to dispose of them. They are collected from lakes within the golf courses using special nets or by divers, and they are graded by professionals. The highest quality lake golf balls are sourced from the United States and Europe, and the best refinished golf balls are manufactured using state of the art equipment that safely cleans and recovers them to eliminate discolouration and markings. 

Millions of lake balls are retrieved and restored all over Europe and the United States each year. Lake balls may be recycled, but they are thoroughly inspected and guaranteed to be high-quality. Best of all, they are very affordable. You do not have to feel too bad about losing them while playing golf. 

Types of Lake Golf Balls 

Lake golf balls are graded to indicate quality. 'Pearl' refers to high-quality lake balls that are almost brand new. They are clean and shiny. 'Pearl-A' mixed pack lake golf balls are almost new with marks or scratches. A pack may contain pearl quality lake golf balls, too. 

‘Grade A’ golf balls resemble golf balls that have been through six to nine holes. They could be mixed in a 50/50 to 25/75 ratio, with pearl golf balls thrown in. ‘Practise’ golf balls are the lowest quality of lake golf balls and typically have severe scuffing, discolouration, and visible scratching. Practise golf balls are the cheapest but they are still useful for complete beginners. 

It definitely makes sense to stock up on lake golf balls if you play a lot. You can save the new golf balls for more important games and just use your lake balls for a regular game or for practise. Just be sure to buy lake golf balls from reputable retailers that can ensure quality.
