A fire that started at a sporting goods manufacturer and golf ball-recycling facility destroyed about 4 million golf balls and caused more than $2 million in damage Saturday.

Reports say the fire started at Mulligan International in Beloeil, Quebec, at about 7:30 a.m. Saturday, and the thick smoke caused a nearby highway to close for several hours.

The company, according to its website, recycles 27 million golf balls per year.

One employee suffered minor injuries.

I thought this was going to be a story about a really bad water hazard.

Stop. Go back.

 

4 million golf balls and only 2 million in damage? 

 

Not even factoring in anything else like the equipment/furniture/offices and your talking about 50 cents a golf ball. Somehow I think that number is a little on the light side.

I guess the price of recycled golfballs will be going up on the north side of the border.

Yeah, true. Guess a lot of range balls might be in there.

 

Even 25 cents a golf ball seems a bit cheap especially resale value after equipment which I imagine has to have a good chunk of change of that total loss.
