Where to buy good quality second hand golf balls

Post by bkistheone » Thu Oct 24, 2013 7:50 am

Hi, I used to use ebay in Australia to buy mint condition 2nd hand golf balls (titleist pro VI etc). I could get these for about $2 AUD per ball.

Does anyone know how I can buy cheap golf balls either online (from Thailand ) or in person?

Thanks

Take Soi 112, turn left to Banyan golf course. About 2km on the left hand side is a roadside cafe with tables outside, stacked with balls of varying quality. 100 thb per pack of 6 or 12. I use Nike but all the brands are there.

On the corner of the small road that leads to the Hilton from about 6.15 you will see an old lady with balls on a wheel cart, she has Pro Vs and the rest, you can order if you want more and she will have the next day :)

I've seen second hand golf balls for sale at the garage under the flyover at the Southern end of town.

Digging up an old thread.

Just curious whether there are people selling 2nd hand golf balls on the golf courses?

I will be playing Majestic Creek and Black Mountain. Thanks!

Other than in the Pro Shops, sell of 2nd hand golf balls is usually frowned on. Since the caddies have access to your golf ball collection, it is a conflict of interest to allow golf balls to be sold on the course other than in the Pro shop. Having said that, I did have some children jump over the fences and enter into Majestic on the second hole. They were trying to sell golf balls to us but were too expensive. I also discouraged this to them and the caddies. The posts above are all still active places to get a deal.
Happy Golfing! and if you have any Rules Questions, be sure and post them on a Forum Page dedicated to that.

Played Majestic today and you can buy decent second hands golf balls for THB100 (for 6-8 balls) at the second green and between the 4th & 5th holes. No issues and I think it's good to see kids trying to make a little money from their endeavours.
You also can get supposedly new Pro V1's at good prices opposite Prime Steakhouse in town. My preferred source as they are very expensive in the Pro shops.
As a side note Majestic was in OK shape today which is an improvement. The first 4 greens were much healthier than they have been recently. However they are now aerating on the back 9, so those greens will not be in good shape for a few weeks. After that things should be a lot better hopefully.

There is a stall located on the small soi that connects Narasdamri Road to Poonsuk Road. I think it's called Soi Kanjanomai. If you enter the small soi from Narasdamri directly opposite Hot Property the stall is on the left just past the tailors. They have many choices including Pro V1s. They are not there all day, best to go in the evening after 6
