on line ball shopping??

Oncore and Snell make balls that are as good or better than the name brand, and have 2 for 1 sales so you can stock

up for far less.   

Three, Albatross'

Three Holes in One

Plus, when I was 5 the first ball I ever hit on a golf course went in the hole, so I have that going for me.

My bag is a mish mash of Srixon drivers, cobra and adams fairways, TA1 irons and Hopkins wedges, plus a Cure putter.

Given the nationwide statistics, most players wouldn’t know the difference …

I buy mine from lost golf balls . com. I get the 5-star mint condition balls. They look brand new or maybe lost after a couple hits. It's usually 45%-50% the cost of brand new for basically a new ball played after 2-holes. So my 5-star mint Srixon Z-Star's are about $24/dozen when I buy 4-dozen. I've only been slightly dissaponted when I've bought the 4-star balls. The condition is quite a bit lower and sometimes they throw in Z-Star XV's or even Q-Star Tours.

Srixon has run buy 1 get 1 on their website in fall/winter, and they just had a buy 2 get 3 promotion on all balls. $60/dz? Don't think so...Pro V1 are $48 retail everywhere.

I've been able to find my balls on Amazon when the price is right. Otherwise I just go with Golf Galaxy when the BOGOs are on. If I run out of deals, I'll turn to the bulk buys via Snell or Vice. Always looking to stay under $40/doz.

Where do you guys purchase your balls?

I have tried many links associated with MGS and even outsode of MGS but with shipping and taxes, a dozen balls are trending above $60.

Callaway is out of CSX balls as well. 

any tips?

I buy my golf balls at Amazon and Golf balls.com That's the best prices I've found.

Back in golf after a 25 year delay. Go Dawgs!!

I buy vice tour or pro soft from their website.  I get 5 dozen at a time and the total cost ( including shipping) is $85. Vice pro soft is $15 more for 5 dozen.  The only drawback is that it takes about 10 days as they are shipped from Germany. If only buy a dozen at a time they are about $ 25 bucks, the more u buy the more u save.   Great deal and they have 6 models to chose from!!!!

Responding to the original question - Around March, Srixon, Callaway, TM, and Titleist will offer a buy 2 or 3, get 1 more free.  At times, Srixon has had a buy 2 get 3 for Father's Day.  Some large online/retail stores will offer X-outs/Practice Pro-V products for $29.99 to $39.99 a dozen on occasion.  These are primarily minor blemishes and beat any ball that has bounced off a tree/cart path.  After that, they are at list price at $45 to $50 a dozen plus sales tax and shipping.  The price for the latest development for pro golfers with the R&D spread across the amateur market.

The other alternative are the Direct To Consumer companies.  Based solely on Dave Snell's reputation for prior work for Titleist and TM, my recommendation is a Snell ball in quantity to keep the price under $30/dozen.  Kirkland from Costco is a good value.  The covers have a reputation for not holding up well.  But if you lose more than 1 ball a round, you can make up for it with $1.25 a piece and put the unpretty balls in the shag bag.
