LostGolfBalls FAQs


Are your golf balls refurbished or refinished?
LostGolfBalls is the largest recycling golf ball company. We retrieve our golf balls from over 2,200 courses. From there, we ship them to our warehouse, where we carefully wash the golf balls with soap and water.  Professionals carefully examine each golf ball to its quality and grade. We do not refurbish or refinish our golf balls.

Why buy a recycled/used golf ball instead of a refinished/refurbished golf ball? 
A recycled golf ball is retrieved and simply washed in a solution of soap and water and then dried. Nothing in this process alters the golf ball from its original condition.

A refurbished/refinished golf ball is a AAA or AA golf ball that is heavily discolored or scuffed.  When the golf ball goes through the process of being refinished it will have the outer layer paint stripped off of the golf ball.  Once this layer is removed a new non-factory paint layer is applied to the golf ball.  Then it is re-stamped with the original manufacturers’ logos and insignia.  After this is complete a new non factory clear coat is applied to the golf ball.  The finished product looks like a golf ball that has never been hit but in reality it is a AAA or AA ball with a face lift.  Throughout this process the golf ball is altered from its original factory specifications.  This will most certainly cause a variance in flight trajectory and shot to shot inconsistency.
A re-clear coated golf ball has the very thin clear coat layer buffed off of the golf ball.  Some companies will do this to make a lower grade golf ball appear to be a higher grade golf ball.  This again alters the golf ball from its original condition in that it will fill in the bottom of the dimples a microscopic amount.  In turn this will also lead to inconsistencies in ball flight and performance.

Why buy a recycled/used golf ball instead of a new golf ball?
LostGolfBalls understands some customers have never purchased a recycled golf ball and are sometimes hesitant to do so at first, but a recycled golf ball has the same trajectory and performance of a "like new" golf ball with the exception of a playing marking/logo. We pride ourselves in our grading scale. The lower the quality, the higher the performance will be affected. Select the quality that will best suit you.
