🏑 How often do you wash your Balls❓ 🤣


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I usually wet a towel how ever I can and it hangs off the bag.  Here in the summer when it is humid it may be required a couple of times to re wet. I always carry a clean towel to dry my hands etc because I sweat like a hog. No fancy towels for me either I use what ever I pick up at Goodwill etc. Down here with all the motels the thrifts end up with bundles of motel towels. One can buy like 20 towels in a bundle for $5.

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 unexpecte

I used to use a wet a towel but here in the desert in the summer, a wet towel is dry in 2 holes.  I started using a bottle brush to clean club grooves, so I just squeeze a little of the soapy water on the ball and use a dry towel.  Of course, if I don't have the brush and towel with me, a little spit and my shirt/shorts works just fine.

I hadn't thought about the thrift stores for towels; we don't have a nice supply like you do, but I'll do some checking for shop towels.

Mine eventually get recycled to the shop. I have a bad habit of using a club wiping towel until it is really nasty or my buddy Bear says "That's disgusting"  I have had some so nasty they will stand up by themselves. Now my face and arm drying towel I change out after every round in the summer because frankly I sweat a lot and they stink

WOW!  I have been in Arizona too long.  I had completely forgotten that some folks get dew on their golf balls.  Here, the only time the ball gets wet is when they are watering the golf course!  😃

When visibly dirty I take a shot of water out of the bottle I carry and wipe them off with a towel.

I take a half wet towel to every green with my putter. Ensures a clean ball for putting and clean ball for the next tee.
