    My home course doesn't have a lot of water, but the wild grass that's thigh high and just ten feet from the fairway is a golf ball vacuum.

    Add a few "target golf" holes and it's a recipe for disaster.

    I averaged 1.75 balls lost a round last year.

    Deposited about 7 dozen into the wasteland.

    I'll buy 5 dozen tops (Vice for one) if I can get a deal on a ball I like playing. I still have, should say found in my little ex-ClubHo warehouse:



    4 dz TM TP Red LDP

    4 dz Hex Tour iZ

    2 dz Hex Tour iS

    2 dz Hex Chrome +



    So even most of those I won't play anymore, proves buying tons of balls when you don't lose a sleeve or more a round doesn't pay off. I'll give some of these to friends who don't play as often, or when kids play with me, and always good for scramble tourneys

    I have 6 dozen AVX's...shocked i only have one brand of ball, but love the AVX!




    Just picked up 7 dozen from the bay - just need to lose the rest of these pro vs!



    Also I tend to shred a ball over 18 holes - rarely does one make it through a round without scuffing up from wedges (or cart paths).

    I have 7 or 8 dozen TP5, ProV1(x), Kirkland, vice pro, AVX etc. The problem is that my home course is a tourist destination for many and is pretty pricey so premium balls are laying everywhere. I can find a dozen ProV1s every round with a few minutes of work. I end up playing a ball I found that looks brand new and my stash goes unused. I want to start using the AVX exclusively but need to burn through my other balls first.




    Same here although my course is 3 stars at best BUT I have dozens of ProVs thanks to the locals.

    Next to me right now I have 12-15 dozen balls of various balls. I was testing a lot of balls last year so bought a lot especially on good deals, I also have extra balls because my friends often forget and I either give them a dozen of something cheap or charge them like $20CAD for a dozen.



    I'm also gonna pick up 6 dozen Vice Pro+ because the deal cannot be beat now and hey balls last forever.



    For what I go through in a round can be 1 or 2 balls can't be 6-9 or more depends on what I'm doing. Fun rounds with friends or practice rounds I'm taking more risky/dumber shots cause it's the time to do it and just having fun.

    I'm done stockpiling. It's fun to play with different balls. New ones every year, and hard to buy new when I've got dozens.

    I bought 4 dozen of the Kirkland 4 piece at the start of the summer and only got through one sleeve as I find good balls all over my home course as well.

    Plus 1. I always break my 1 dozen rule and regret it. I am (was) a sucker for the 2 fer deals. Sleeves of balls might be the way to go, when possible.

    i'm sitting on roughly 23 dozen. Down from 50 at the peak. Mostly given away and used as practice balls, so I went through quite a few dozen this year.

    Every year it is more difficult for me to choose a ball.

    I have had so many golf balls stored away in my climate controlled basement for so many years that I finally took action three years ago! I started out by contacting the Pro at the local nine-hole golf course and range. They have a youth program but they did not want anymore balls as they had more than they needed for the program! I inquired at several other local courses with no luck. I finally got lucky when I spoke to a person at a golf course a couple of hours away from the cities. They were happy to take as many as I could give them! They received 20 dozen new and at least that many used in very good condition. Whenever I travel to that area I always give them a call if I have a few dozen more for them. They are always happy to get them for their youth golf program. Check around in your local area if you have some to donate for the young golfers!
