Costco is going to hurt the golf store business big time with this one!
You may have already heard and if you haven’t you’re going to now! Costco is coming out with it’s own golf ball that will rival the TitleistV1 which sells for about $48 a dozen, for only $15.00 a dozen!
OK so if Costco sells a cheap hard cover ball that only a hacker might consider that’s OK and has been very acceptable in the market place for quite some time now. In fact, now even Walmart sells Titlelist golf balls. However I think most of their sales are probably the lower cost balls for their clientele of golfers.
But now, if Costco can in fact produce a top level golf ball equal to or as they now claim better than the Titleist V1 at less than half the cost, maron! It’s going to make the quality golf ball experience and advantage available to all the average golfers out there. I’m all for it!
You have to ask yourself one question? Why so cheap? Or maybe has Titleist been ripping us all along? My Golf Spy did an in depth test on the new Kirkland golf ball with launch monitors the works. Performs in every way as well as the Titleist in spin ratios etc. accept for one thing. IT GOES FURTHER!!!!!!!!

They claim to be back in stock on December 20th so you better get to the Costco website and order quick because they will surely run out again. Go to http://www.costco.com/Kirkland-Signature-Four-Piece-Urethane-Cover-Golf-Ball%2c-2-dozen.product.100310467.html
