Best Golf Balls for Beginners

Truly the best golf ball for a beginner is the range ball. They are not sold, but rather "rented" by the bucketfulls at a practice range near you. Get to know them on a regular basis and watch your game improve.


Read on for the best golf balls for beginners to use on the course.


Many of the best golf balls for a begin­ner are what I call $1 balls. As the name applies these are balls that cost around $1 each. Many begin­ners lose a lot of golf balls so the price is right but there are other rea­sons these are the best golf balls for begin­ners. These balls have a 2 piece con­struc­tion designed for greater dis­tance and less spin off the tee. The hard cover com­pared to other balls pro­vides less feel and spin around the green but won’t cut or scuff as eas­ily from bad shots.

Here is a list of the best golf balls for beginners.
