The Best Golf Balls For Beginner Golfers

There have been a lot of discussions about golf balls and while I understand that golf balls are important, I wish I didn't spend as much as I did on premium golfballs when I started playing golf.

Here are a couple of different ideas that I would recommend for golf balls for beginners.

The Very New Beginner

If you're someone that has recently started golf and your idea of a golf shot is anything that moves forward farther than you can throw it, then you should spend as little money on a golf ball as possible.

It's not that the ball isn't important, it's just that there are much more important skills that you need to develop before worrying about how much your golf ball spins or how close it resembles the ones you see on tour.

Here are some inexpensive options that you can find on Amazon and often for sale in the pro shop.

The Beginner That Needs Help With Distance

When I first started playing golf, I could barely hit my driver further than 210 yards. The fact is, most amateur golfers don't hit the ball anywhere near the distance they think they do. It's nothing to be ashamed of and there are some balls that are designed to fly a bit longer.

Just be careful about the claims. There are no shortcuts in golf and no golf ball is going to magically make you drive it like a World Long Drive Competitor.

The Beginner Golfer That Wants A Premium Ball At A Discount

You are in luck because this category of golf balls is one of the fastest growing segments in the golf industry. Paying $50 a dozen for golf balls only makes sense if you:

1.) Have the funds
2.) Don't loose many golf balls

Don't worry if you're not Richie Rich, there are plenty of golfballs that give premium performance for around $30 a dozen.
