HomeequipmentGolf ballManufacturer

You can always find so many golf balls on the courses, but which ball is really good and which cucumber should you throw in the bin? Our small manufacturer overview helps you to evaluate your finds.

Even if every manufacturer produces a whole series of golf balls of different quality in order to cover as many price segments as possible, the manufacturers can still be ranked according to quality levels. This evaluation is based on the top models.

Top quality

There are a few manufacturers in the high-price segment, but the industry leader Titleist remains unmatched and is still preferred by most golf professionals.

Titleist
The best balls from Titleist are the Pro V1 and Pro V1x.

Callaway
Still one of the underdogs in the ball business. But some top players like Phil Mickelson swear by this brand. The top model is the HX Tour.

TaylorMade
The racket giant continues to mix in the ball market. The top models are the TP Red and the TP Black.

Srixon
Long a quiet kick in the ball area, Srixon has meanwhile turned into a serious outsider with the Z-URS.

Strata
Noble ball brand from Spalding. The Strata family is currently particularly proud of the Tour Ultimate +.

Nike
The flagship of the Tiger outfitter is the new One Platinum II.


Good quality

The balls from the following manufacturers are easy to play and can hardly be identified as lower quality balls by beginners:

Maxfli
Maxfli from TaylorMade has already achieved astonishing sales success in the USA with the catchy name "Noodle". But the brand's most expensive ball is the Black Max.

Ben Hogan
Ben Hogan is part of the Callaway family. In the last few years in particular, a lot of effort has been made in developing new golf balls. Result: Apex Tour Red and Apex Tour Black.

Pinnacle
Pinnacle is part of the Fortune Brands family, which also includes Titleist. The top model is the exception.

Top Flite
Mid-range brand from Callaway. The top model is the Strata Tour TL.

Bridgestone
The 3-piece-Ball Tour B330 combines three innovative technologies: Speed-Elasticity-Core, Polyurethane-Shell and 330 Dimple Design.


Middle class

Precept
Aside from the scramble of the big players, Precept repeatedly attracts attention with surprising successes. The top model is the PWRDRIVE.

Dunlop
Solid manufacturer of sporting goods. The golf balls also play well and surprise with their good widths. Top model: LoCo Bite.

Wilson
In terms of quality, the golf balls easily keep up with the other brands. It is only in the high-price range that the values ​​of the top brands cannot be reached. The Staff True Tour Elite is therefore too expensive.

Arnold Palmer - Bay Hill
The Bay Hill HP 432 with a titanium shell is a real all-round ball at a sensational price.
