Since the beginning of the Used golf ball industry there has been some controversy raised as to whether used golf balls retrieved from the water perform any different than new golf balls. Also, there has been controversy on whether a refinished golf ball can affect your game or not.
Recycled Golf Balls
The questioning of the performance of recycled balls may have been relevant years ago when balls were made differently, but golf balls today are constructed completely different and are very resilient. To help serve you best, we have created a grading scale based on condition.
What is a recycled golf ball?
After golf balls have been retrieved from some of the best courses across the United States, Golf Ball Divers uses a proprietary and environmentally friendly cleaning system designed to wash each ball without causing damage to its original condition. We started out using buckets but have moved up to 350 gallon buckets with a crane to lift the balls out. We have the capability to process 50,000 balls a day!
Once cleaned, the used golf balls are separated according to make, model, and condition. The condition of each golf ball determines its grade and allows us to systematically separate the good golf balls from the excellent golf balls. Learn more about our golf ball grading.
