OUR PROCESS.

Golf ball grades are key to finding the right balls for your budget and playing needs. After golf balls have been retrieved from some of the best courses across the United States, LostGolfBalls.com uses a proprietary and environmentally friendly cleaning system designed to wash each ball without causing damage to its original condition.

Once cleaned, the used golf balls are separated according to make, model, and condition. The condition of each golf ball determines its grade and allows us to systematically separate the good golf balls from the excellent golf balls. Learn more about our retrieval and sorting process by watching this video.
