Recommended Posts

Before and after a game?

On every hole?

Only when they are stinky?

Will you miss the ball washer in covid times?

How many strokes do you use in the ball washer? Must have some OCDers here. I do 10.

Both your regular balls (pun intended) and found balls.

Keep them clean boys important now more than ever.🧴

No ball washers on the course here.  I'm more of an every hole guy, but I recently picked up the GrooveIt Brush for my clubs.  It squirts water on the club and then brushes them clean.  Huge unexpected positive with the brush, I can use it to squirt water the ball and clean it with my towel.

I have a brush with bottle incorporated as well but lost the bottle a while ago, that was a great set up. Still have the brush always keep it hanging off the bag. Always clean a club off with the brush and wipe in the club towel unless it did not get dirty. I have a towel for myself as well if it gets hot or starts to rain, proessional CA towel for me and regular towel for the clubs,

I only clean my golf balls when they are dirty or when I find some lost balls I clean them at the next tee box. 🛁

Don't know why they don't just put some hand sanitizer attached to the ball washers, would be better and easier as don't have to remove them then. 🧼

As we play at 8 in the morning, there is dew on the ground......enough to clean the ball. When there isn’t, I simply spit onto my towel and clean the ball, especially when I reach the green.

If they catch you doing that now you will be in trouble with the new rules of covid golf. The way they talk people / inspectors maybe out and if there is violation that course and maybe all in the area maybe everywhere will be closed, no joking here, word and rumour travel in milliseconds now, real news and fake news makes no matter.

Stay safe fozcycle.

Wet my ball towel (thank you, Hilton San Francisco - took home by mistake) before the front 9 and before that back nine. Cleans off my clubs and I usually take it to the every green to clean the ball after I mark.

I assume you are talking golf.

Guess that may be the norm know. Wet towels to have clean fresh balls.

I have one of those little neoprene pouches with terry cloth inside.  I wet the terry cloth before my round, and it stays wet for the entire round.  I usually only clean my balls (golf) when I see dirt.  I read that Ernie Els tosses a ball once he gets a birdie with it.  He says balls are only good for one birdie.  I believe that superstition would go away if he were paying for his balls.

Only clean the ball when there is dirt visible. Usually a towel does a sufficient job and I only have to use the ball washer a couple of times per round. No problems for me playing without ball washers during the Covid conditions as long as I wet the corner of a towel.

Ernie is correct when it comes to my game.  If I get a birdie, that ball will be worn out or lost before I get another with it.  🙄

Ball is cleaned when I reach the green.

Still have ball washers at every tee box at my typical course of dismay.  And lately it's been a swamp, so I use every ball washer and my towel along the way.  Fresh balls are hard to keep in Arkansas' rainy seasons.  Humidity doesn't help either 😉.

My hole in one came from a rather dirty ball. I don't wash the balls the whole round. I do carry a rag and wipe off mud from approach shots. 

I only use the ball washer in the course of the tee if backed up something fierce.

Usually, I will use the same three balls the whole round, rotating them from hole to hole. I usually have 2 different types: prov1 for par 3s and some sort of X ball for into the wind or longer holes cuz they go a little further.

No ball washers on the course because of Covid.  I carry a wet towel and a brush/water bottle and clean my ball before I tee off.  Of course on the green if I need to.

I keep them clean throughout my round and then when I get home drop them in a bucket let them soak for a little then clean them along with my clubs. It's a good habit extends the life of the balls and clubs at the same time. Also I've seen people miss putts because of something on the ball, that won't be me!

On every tee and usually when I reach the green.  My wife would kill me if I picked up found balls on the course during this time.  So rather than deal with that, I leave everything alone and am constantly using the hand sanitizer on my bag.

I have a small square towel that I like to dampen and use for cleaning golf balls on the course. Half the time, ball washing stations are located somewhere other than the tee box I'm playing and it's rare that I'll actually remember to stop before or after teeing off to make sure I've got a couple of clean golf balls in my rotation. One course I play has a ball and club washer attached to their carts which is nice - I wish more clubs would do that.
