Outfitting Yourself With Great Practice Golf Balls To Improve Your Handicap

Practice golf balls are a great, cost effective means of improving both your driving and short game. Here's a look at some of the styles on the market, as well as considerations that should come into play.


Training is essential to improving in anything.  Whether you’re training to get into shape, or to get better at something, like the game of golf.  Without proper training, you’re never going to be able to hit the ball better or more accurately, which is going to cause you to plateau, unable to really move beyond what you’ve developed otherwise.  That’s why having important training items like practice golf balls is so important. Without some such tool, you’re going to find yourself to be extremely limited when it comes to getting better and more reliable in terms of your swing, and your actual connection with the ball.

That’s why you want to look into a few things, and that includes what types of balls you need, and what are going to make the cut in terms of overall quality.  You have to select a different type depending upon what sort of practice you’re performing, to make sure that you get the most out of the experience.  While these don’t need to be tour quality balls, as it’s more about developing core skills to rise to the next level, you still have to be sure that they are of the right quality:

1) Selecting the right type of practice golf balls.

This refers to finding the sort that can guarantee you the type of practice that you really need.  Whether you’re looking for something that can get the job done on the driving range, or if you’re looking for an ideal putting ball. The types you choose here can make a massive difference, which is why it’s so essential that you end up choosing wisely.

– Driving practice golf balls

For driving, you want to go with those that have a very hard and durable outer shell.  This way, they are less likely to get beat up when they are constantly smacked around, but also so that they are more apt to fly further off the tee, so you can get a feel for how to make your balls really sail.

– Practicing the short game.

If you want to work on your putting, you need to take a different approach however.  Thick and durable driving balls are not ideal for the green, as they just don’t have a good touch and tend to bounce a bit too much.  Rather, you want to go with practice golf balls that have a soft outside, because they are more controllable, and allow you to influence things like spin into the way that you strike the ball.

– Foam golf balls.

If you’re in a situation where you cannot hit a normal ball, but you still want to be able to work on your ability to connect during your swing, then this is the right type for you.  Safe enough to use in the house, these are balls that won’t destroy property, or even harm people if you end up smacking someone with your next shot.  Really ideal for having around the office, or just ensuring that you can hit a few balls in the living room without having to worry about the consequences.

2) Selecting a good high visibility color.

It’s so important that you select a high visibility color, so that you can be sure you’re able to see the flight of the ball, to get a feel for how you struck on contact.  That means going with something like blaze orange balls, or those that feature bright yellow exteriors as well.  You have to be sure that you have one or the other if you want to be able to get the job done, and it’s so important that you have something that’s easier to see during practice.

3) Buying in bulk.

Another thing that you have to be able to do with practice golf balls, is buy in bulk, so that you can get a ton to ensure that you’re able to practice all that you need.  That means for driving or putting, you want to buy sets of 25 of more, so that you can get through an awful lot of tries before you have to round up your balls and start over again.  Though with foam you can go with smaller numbers, because you’re using them in a more confined space to begin with.
