Balls for Beginners

If you're someone who loses a lot of balls, the Maxfli Softfli can often be found for $30/3 dozen at DSG. There's no better value in a ball for someone new to the game that doesn't want to spend a lot of time looking for balls that've been dunked or lost to the woods.

... You are thinking of the short lived Performance One 4 piece ball. The Performance+ 3 piece ball is available online and I have never seen them out of stock in stores. They also have a very durable cover. Neither to be confused with the original legendary Tour Performance. 🤪

I had the same issue with the new Performance+ balls - I bought them in March I believe.  They cut so bad on me that I had to take some out of play after one hole going tee-fairway-green. (Granted I was playing new SM8 wedges...but still.)  I have over a dozen left in the garage.  For the price they are still a good value, but if you don't lose a lot of balls I'd look elsewhere.  I moved to the Snell and that is a very durable ball that has played consistently for me.

TM Project (a), Srixon soft feel, Wilson duo are three good ones to start with.  You can buy the soft feel in many color choices as well to help locate them.

The only Kirkland ball that had a cover issue was the VERY short lived 4 piece "Performance One" ball.

If you got a random bad box of 3 piece Performance+ balls, that's unfortunate, and Costco's superior customer service would likely exchange them for you.

No doubt they would, but I am about to change home courses.  I have no doubt I will go through all of them as I learn how to play a course with water on most of the holes!
