For more than 20 years, LostGolfBalls.com has provided the golfing world with the very best recycled golf balls from dozens of courses nationwide. Offering gently used golf balls like Pro V1, Titleist, Callaway, and TaylorMade, LostGolfBalls.com staff heads out onto more than 2,200 golf courses in more than 45 states, masks on and baskets in hand, in search of golf balls like a never-ending Easter egg hunt.
In preparing the balls for customers, the golf-crazed staff at LostGolfBalls.com carefully inspect, sort, and wash each ball with an environmentally-friendly cleaner to provide a top quality product at half the price of new.
Thanks to an innovative sorting process, only a small percentage of what comes through the company’s facility actually has the aesthetics to make it in your golf bag. To better serve customers, LostGolfBalls.com has created a grading scale based on condition. As such, those in excellent condition receive the AAAAA grading mark while balls in great condition receive AAAA; those in good condition are awarded the AAA grade.
Sometimes, it is difficult to differentiate between a new ball and the AAAAA. Like-new and in mint condition, they preserve their original color and luster. Although golf balls of all qualities may have minor pen marks and a variety of logos, the company tries its best to limit those per order. For those who value appearance, the AAAAA is the premium choice.
With only three to four dimples worth of cosmetic blemish, slight discoloration, and/or a minimal loss of luster, the AAAA golf balls are the best return for your investment. They will not look like they have been recently harvested from the murky depths; they just emit less of that soft, white glow that is characteristic of a new or 5A golf ball. Nevertheless, appearance does not affect ball flight or playability. The AAAA golf balls are budget-friendly because they balance a great price per ball with great quality.
At the end of the scale, but still in the top category in terms of quality, is the AAA. These golf balls may have slight scuffs, blemishes, discoloration and/or smudges, and can include higher-grade x-out and practice models. AAA’s are a good fit for those who use the same golf balls during practice, matches, and tournaments.
Since all golf balls become officially used after the first hit, it makes sense to consider LostGolfBalls.com for your next golf ball purchase. To learn more about the company or to place an order, visit here.
