Grading

Recycled Golf Balls are similar to eggs. They are washed, brand and type sorted and then individually Hand Graded by color and cover condition. The recycled balls are sorted into Mint, A-Grade and Practice-Grade (Grade R) condition so the consumer can choose the quality and price point they wish to purchase. For a closer look at the grading standards please see the chart below. The pictures are for illustration purposes only and we do not grade using the pictures as our standard. The pictures are there to illustrate or explain in way that words simply cannot. 

GRADE
GRADING DESCRIPTION
MINT (A+)
Mint_golf_ball
These golf balls are like new in appearance and will feel and play as a new ball would. They might have tiny imperfections but have no abrasions at all.  We like to call them “One Hit Wonder” golf balls as it was most likely lost after the first swing or two .... or stolen out of players bag ;-) Can also be called "A+" Grade. *

A-Grade

gradea_golf_ball

These golf balls all have one or another minor imperfection that keeps them from being Mint. They might have minor abrasions or slight blemishes. Most people would consider these balls Mint, but we are just too picky. These balls are similar to a new ball after being played for 3-4 holes. The shine and color of the balls may slightly vary, but the integrity of the flight characteristic is not compromised at all. *

MINT & A-GRADE MIX

The combination of these two grades are as a result of the quality of the balls being so good that we cannot tell the difference between MINT and A-Grade. When you as customer buy them you will not be able to tell the difference either because of the high standard of grading and quality balls. Guaranteed Great Quality Golf Balls! *

Practice

GradeB_Golf-ball

These balls have been played with for a few holes and still look fairly good. They will have minor marks and / or minor scuffs on the balls but they are great for practice. These are balls that did not make it into our "A" grade however you might find A Grade balls in the mix. We recommend this grade to high handicap and beginner golfers.
* Balls may have logos and/or player markings. This includes all grades.
