Golfers are going CRAZY over Costco’s new Kirkland Signature golf balls

Published

on

Costco, the home of wholesale, is a wonderful place where you can buy a 12-pack of steaks, a year’s supply of ketchup, two pounds of cheese balls, refurnish your house and re-up your wardrobe… all in one trip. Now, you can also pick up two dozen, four-piece urethane golf balls for $30 at certain local Costco warehouses, or online.

The golf balls are branded with the Kirkland Signature name, which is Costco’s in-house brand that makes all sorts of things: alcohol, food, house supplies and much more. Costco says the Kirkland brand must be equal to or better than the national brands, and must offer a savings to Costco members. The $15-per-dozen Kirkland Signature golf balls are USGA conforming, and are produced by Nassau Golf Co. Ltd of South Korea.

Sounds good, but what are real golfers saying about the Kirkland Signature golf balls?

GolfWRX members, who are some of the most knowledgable golfers in the world, have not hesitated to weigh in on the Kirkland-branded balls, filling up a 31-page forum thread (and counting).

Related: Join the discussion here.

“Same driving distance, and flight pattern (as the b330rx),” Forum member Two_Putt said about the Kirkland Signature Balls. “I can’t check the ball on the green but I did notice that it didn’t run out as far. Overall in my opinion a great value and my new ball of choice.”

As you may know, another popular manufacturer making four-piece urethane golf balls is Titleist with its Pro V1x, which sell for about $48 per dozen. A few forum members took it upon themselves to test the “KSigs” against the Pro V1(x)’s. Some of their reports below.

Coreyhr: “Here’s my hot take on the Kirkland. I normally game a Pro V1x and that’s what I was comparing against on my Skytrak. The feel off the driver in my opinion is better than the ProV, seriously the best feeling ball off the driver I’ve ever hit. The irons however left a lot to be desired for me. They felt clicky off of long and mid irons compared to the ProV. I don’t quite understand why one feels so good but the other not so much. I hit enough shots that strike shouldn’t be the culprit. The Kirkland was 2-3 yards longer for me during a 6 iron comparison due to lower spin than a ProV. Launch and peak height were virtually identical. Launch with a driver however was actually about 2 degrees lower with the Kirkland interestingly enough. I won’t be putting the Kirkland in the bag during tournament play, but absolutely will use it for those afternoon rounds after work. This thing is a serious threat to the big boys in the market.”

“Lots of comparisons to the pro v1/v1x’s. There more similar to the project a’s in looks(almost identical), feel(tad firmer), and spin after playing them imo. When you put the $15 a dozen perspectives into consideration there isn’t any negatives that can really be justified I guess. Hopefully the price doesn’t jump $10 by spring but even then it would still be a great deal.”

tw_focus: “…Overall it’s a nice ball, BUT I think I will stick to ProV1s. I don’t spend a whole lot of money on golf balls (4x boxes of ProV1s during sale time have lasted me the season), the major cost / investment is my time. I don’t want to play with anything less than the best, and I think the Kirkland balls are slightly worse (though I admit a much better value).”

suprfli6: “Played 18 with one yesterday and it actually felt firmer off the driver than my usual Pro V1, but similar distances and spin with every type of shot I played. It was cooler than I’m used to so maybe that contributed to the feel difference. Too soon to tell for sure but personally it seemed to perform like a typical urethane tour ball so considering the price I’m optimistic.”

gripandrip: “Not like this will be a surprise, but I think I am a convert as well. Played two rounds this weekend, one on a links course in 25mph winds (on the shore of Lake Erie) and the other under normal conditions. No noticeable loss of distance, decent flight through the wind, acceptable spin on and around the greens. I am typically a Pro V1 player. Do these balls feel as good off my club as a Pro V in all instances? No. But close enough that I will probably change, for a while at least. However, I won’t be buying large quantities. If I bought 50 dozen balls, they would probably have to be cleaned out of my basement after I die. That’s a lot of balls.”

Kirkland_Signature_Box

MarkCPA: “…Overall, I’m very impressed given the price of the ball. I saw no material differences in the K-Sig performance-wise vs. any other premium ball I’ve got good experience with including the TM TPX and the ProV1X. It has very good greenside control and is plenty long. I already placed an order for four dozen. I don’t see how anyone who wants a tour caliber ball but hates dropping $45+ on a dozen balls wouldn’t give the K-Sig a try.”

RSinSG: “…As I wrote earlier, I play ProV1x that I get for $20/dz from Golfballsdirect.com and to be honest I like the KSig’s as much if not a little better. I’m not saying they are a better ball than the ProV1 – only that I like them. If you’re on the fence try them. $15 a dz is a crazy good deal. I just ordered 3 more boxes before the free shipping ends.”

And remember, as per Costco’s policy, if you don’t like the product, you can always take it back for a full refund.

“I saw a lady return a jar of peanuts to Costco minus the jar,” forum member FiveSixAce said. “A gallon zip lock bag full of peanuts. They took it back.”

Tough to tell if he’s joking or not.

    This ball will hit the industry between the eyes and really hurt most everyone in the ball business. Titleist balls like NXT, Velocity, DT could be dust now, PRO V will definitely suffer as only the few loyalists wanting the label on their ball will pay the price. All the balls from Bridgestone, Srixon and others will face serious trouble (many millions) if the ball were to comeback. I don’t expect to see that Kirkland ball ever again! The collective industry will stop it, they may buy the plant that makes these and close it down, they may call it a test pilot or Beta run that could not be sustained…. blah blah.

    Bought Kirkland 4 piece about 3 weeks ago and have played 4 rounds. I am 65 yr young retiree with a 9 hdcp. Ball is great distance wise with fantastic spin on greens. I have have played Snell and Vice both great balls but higher price than Kirkland. They do scuff a little easier. On a fixed income I look for great buys for the $$ and this ball is. Another great ball if you can find them is a Wilson Staff Zip(24 for $20) this 2 piece spins better than than duos I had been using since they came out. Glen Kirk is a fantastic 8yr old single malt for $19.95, make it a habit to find great value

    I am willing to bet if you held a blind test here and told all the elitist who have posted here to try this ball, unbranded and were told it was the 2017 Pro-V1 platinum prototype, they would be acting like teen girls at a Justin Bieber concert, giggling and screaming about how wonderful it is.

    the reviews on the costco website are phenomenal. people dont blow smoke on reviews for the fun of it… these balls got nearly 5 star reviews by everyone. this isnt a gimmick or advertisement. not sure why people feel the need to trash this article. clearly it has people interested. im definitely gaming these this weekend. thanks Costco and GolfWRX for the heads up!

    all manufacturers make a legit 4/5 piece ball. just like all manufacturers make legit clubs. most pro’s play different setups from their clubs to their ball. most all golf equipment is created equal; different people winning every week on tour with different sponsors… Costco just changed the game here and these balls are only going to get better and evolve.

    Americans, I urge you to buy American-made golf balls, certain models of Bridgestone, Titleist, Callaway, etc. Please buy American. Show these companies you value keeping their manufacturing jobs in the states.

    My apologies, I’m pretentious and concerned about how I’m perceived on the golf course. I wouldn’t be caught alive with any golf products from Costco, Gemco, Target, Thrifty, CVS, Sears, Penny’s, FedCo, YourCo, or my local grocery for that matter. Kirkland will remain on all of my finer camping needs and H2o bottles. I’d rather lose the extra $15 and roll out the ProV’s, thank you very much. Save your alleged dollars and tell me all about how much you’re saving on the other umpteen vices in your life.

      Extra $15 for Pro Vs… Try more like $30 a dozen more for the Pro Vs. At $15 a dozen Id probably use them for most of my practice rounds and club events and save a few dozen Pro Vs for when it actually mattered.

      That’s:

      $1.25 per ball or,

      $3.75 per sleeve or,

      $15.00 PER DOZEN or,

      $29.99 per TWO (2) DOZEN (24 balls).

    So this isn’t the right place to post a review but I picked up 5-doz Vice drive balls last week for around $50 (or ~ $10/doz) and I really liked them. Tee to green they were about the same as my V1x, good feel, spin, and distance off the driver and irons.. They were a little bit of a let down on the putting green, (very hot off the putter face) but after a few holes I got used to them. They aren’t a urethane ball, I think they are 2-piece Surlyn, but definitely worth considering if you want a budget ball. Much softer feel than the other Surlyn balls I’ve played like the e6. And like all Suryln balls they seem pretty indestructible – I’ve played 2 rounds now with the same ball and it doesn’t have a scuff.

    There are any number of very good golf balls that are around $30 a dozen, which I think is reasonable. Price is not really a major concern to me I can easily afford the $50 a dozen for Titleist but have found that they really don’t perform (for me) any better than the balls that are $30 a doz.

    I have gone to the less expensive Taylor Made, Wilson, Bridgestone, or the colored Korean Balls (the name escapes me now).

    More to the point, I have no interest in the Kirkland. The result of diminishing return applies at both ends of the spectrum.

          Oct 29, 2016 at 6:05 pm

          It is $15 per dozen and not $30 as you mentioned. There is a huge difference between $15 and $47 per dozen for similar construction and performance. A number of folks here have made comments that at $30 it is not worth the savings. However, it is $30 for two dozen.

    37 people don’t mind paying $50 for 12 golf balls that perform about the same as a Pro V1, unless you’re a tour pro…doubt you guys could tell the difference if you played both balls without brands on them.

    • Justin

      Oct 29, 2016 at 10:08 am

      I’d be curious, as well. We can say that for almost any product made, though. The looks are different, to avoid infringement, but when it comes to performance, who can tell a difference?

      Blind tests would be best. It’s incredibly hard to do, especially with club heads, and people will always find flaws in the methodology (shaft wraps altering performance, for example).

      At the end of the day, though, Brand Loyalty is a thing, and it always will be. We gotta make ourselves happy, and if it takes a $50/doz ball or a $30/2 doz ball to do that, it is what it is.

    I give this “article” a shank.

    The writer does nothing to advance the discussion on the ball. The article is nothing but two paragraphs of introduction, two paragraphs of transition and a number of quotes from a long forum thread on the ball.

    This reads like an essay a high school student would put together an hour before class when the student forgot to do the assignment the night before. Write a couple of paragraphs, copy and paste liberally from Wikipedia and hope for a passing grade.

    • Mat

      Nov 1, 2016 at 3:02 pm

      That’s because either this article is an ad placement, or it’s an “article” with no research and a very lazy writer. It would be awfully nice if the article had anything on it more than “it’s a 4-piece”. It sounds as if it plays like a rock, but there’s no comparison with any other ball made by the SK firm…

  23. B. Parsons

    Oct 28, 2016 at 11:43 am

    $15 a dozen, and you know there is a small profit margin in that…so have you figured out why ProV1’s are $48 a dozen..besides every time you buy a dozen you are paying for at least one more dozen for the the pros on the driving range….this Kirkland will not be on any pro driving range, note it is made in Korea (a Korean company owns Titlist golf balls if you did not already know) This is not the first good Urethane ball at a good price point MG golf has had a good one (C-4) for years.

    good deal for the hacker – I have the opposite problem, I try to find excuses to get rid of balls. A single ball could last many rounds. If it scuffs up I toss them to my friends. Don’t need to save money when you only use a box or 2 a year.

The mere fact that something of same quality as a higher priced product can be produced and sold for less than what is currently being offered is MIND BOGGLING!

Top 10 clubs of 2003—inspired by Adam Scott’s Titleist 680 irons

Published

on

As has been well documented, Adam Scott recently won the Genesis Invitational with a set of Titleist 680 blade irons, a design that was originally released in 2003. One of the great benefits of being one of the best players in the world is you don’t need to search eBay to find your preferred set of 17-year-old irons. Titleist has been stocking sets for Mr. Scott—even to the point of doing a limited production run in 2018 where they then released 400 sets for sale to the general public.

A lot of time has passed since 2003, and considering the classic nature of Scott’s Titleist 680, I figured now was a good time to look back at some other iconic clubs released around the same time.

Ping G2 driver

This was Ping’s first 460cc driver with a full shift into titanium head design. The previous Si3 models still utilized the TPU adjustable hosel, and this was considered a big step forward for the Phoenix-based OEM. The driver was a big hit both on tour and at retail—as was the rest of the G2 line that included irons.

TaylorMade RAC LT (first gen) irons

The RAC LTs helped position TaylorMade back among the leaders in the better players iron category. The entire RAC (Relative Amplitude Coefficient) line was built around creating great feeling products that also provided the right amount of forgiveness for the target player. It also included an over-sized iron too. The RAC LT went on to have a second-generation version, but the original LTs are worthy of “classic” status.

TaylorMade R580 XD driver

Honestly, how could we not mention the TaylorMade R580 XD driver? TM took some of the most popular drivers in golf, the R500 series and added extra distance (XD). OK, that might be an oversimplification of what the XD series offered, but with improved shape, increased ball speed outside of the sweet spot, and lower spin, it’s no wonder you can still find these drivers in the bags of golfers at courses and driving ranges everywhere.

Titleist 680MB irons

The great thing about blades is that beyond changing sole designs and shifting the center of gravity, the basic design for a one-piece forged head hasn’t changed that much. For Adam Scott, the 680s are the perfect blend of compact shape, higher CG, and sole profile.

Titleist 983K, E drivers

If you were a “Titleist player,” you had one of these drivers! As one of the last companies to move into the 460cc category, the 983s offered a classic pear shape in a smaller profile. It was so good and so popular, it was considered the benchmark for Titleist drivers for close to the next decade.

Cleveland Launcher 330 driver

It wasn’t that long ago that OEMs were just trying to push driver head size over 300cc, and Cleveland’s first big entry into the category was the Launcher Titanium 330 driver. It didn’t live a long life, but the Launcher 330 was the grandaddy to the Launcher 400, 460, and eventually, the Launcher COMP, which is another club on this list that many golfers will still have fond memories about.

Mizuno MP 33 irons

Although released in the fall of 2002, the Mizuno MP 33 still makes the list because of its staying power. Much like the Titleist 680, this curved muscle blade was a favorite to many tour players, including future world No. 1 Luke Donald. The MP 33 stayed in Mizuno’s lineup for more than four years and was still available for custom orders years after that. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a set now you are going to have to go the used route.

Callaway X-16 irons

The Steelhead X-16 was a big hit at retail for Callaway. It offered greater forgiveness than the previous X-14’s but had a more compact shape with a wider topline to inspire confidence. They featured Callaway’s “Notch” weighting system that moved more mass to the perimeter of the head for higher MOI and improved feel. There was a reduced offset pro series version of the iron, but the X-16 was the one more players gravitated towards. This is another game improvement club for that era that can still be found in a lot of golf bags.

Ben Hogan CFT irons

The Hogan CFTs were at the forefront of multi-material iron technology in 2003. CFT stood for Compression Forged Titanium and allowed engineers to push more mass to the perimeter of the head to boost MOI by using a thin titanium face insert. They had what would be considered stronger lofts at the time sounded really powerful thanks to the thin face insert. If you are looking for a value set of used irons, this is still a great place to start.

King Cobra SZ driver

In 2003, Rickie Fowler was only 15 years old and Cobra was still living under the Acushnet umbrella as Titleist’s game improvement little brother. The Cobra SZ (Sweet Zone, NOT 2020 Speed Zone) was offered in a couple of head sizes to appeal to different players. The thing I will always remember about the original King Cobra SZ is that it came in an offset version to help golfers who generally slice the ball—a design trait that we still see around today.

Today from the Forums: “The importance of wedge fitting”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we delve into a subject dedicated to wedge fitting. Liquid_A_45 wants to know if wedge fitting is as essential for golfers as iron fitting, and our members weigh into the discussion saying why they feel it is just as imperative.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Z1ggy16: “Super important if you’re a serious golfer. Even better if you can get fit outdoors on real grass and even go into a bunker.”
  • ThunderBuzzworth: “The biggest part of wedge fitting is yardage gapping and sole grinds. If you have a grind that doesn’t interact with the turf in your favor, it can be nightmarish around the greens. When hitting them try a variety of short game shots with different face angles etc. with the different grinds to see which one works best for what you need.”
  • Hawkeye77: “Wedge fitting I had was extremely beneficial when I got my SM6s a few years ago. Mostly for working with the different grinds and how they interacted with my swing and on different shots and having an eye on my swing to help with the process and evaluate the results. My ideas of what grinds were right for me based on researching on Titleist, etc. just were not correct in 2/3 of the wedges I ended up with as far as the grinds were concerned. Good to have an experienced fitter available to answer questions, control variables, etc.”
  • cgasucks: “The better you get at this game, the more important wedges are.”

Today from the Forums: “Pull cart recommendations?”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we take a look at pull carts currently on the market. Bogeygolfer55 is looking for a quality pull cart for less than $300, and our members have been giving their recommendations in our forums – with Clicgear proving to be a popular option.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Yuck: “I have had a clicgear 3.5 for nearly four years now. Holding up well with well over 200 rounds on it so far.”
  • Hawkeye77: “I had a Clicgear and liked it a lot, but my daughter “appropriated” it. Came upon an article a year ago about the Blade IP. Ordered one. It folds flat instead of into a cube which I like, and when I take it out it is quicker to get ready to go, and easier to take down. That doesn’t mean the Clicgear was particularly difficult, but it was more involved and 4 pounds heavier – don’t mind pushing a lot less weight.”
  • Celebros: “Another vote for Clicgear. The 4.0 just came out, so you may be able to find some of the 3.5+ models discounted soon.”
  • I_HATE_SNOW: “Sun Mountain user. Tall thin tires roll through the grass the easiest. Ours are old enough that the tires inflated. Once slimed, they stay up all winter. Mesh baskets on the cart are nice for carrying headcovers, water bottles, dog leash, etc.”
  • birddog903: “I’ve had a caddytek lite three-wheel version for a year or so. No complaints and I paid less than $100.”
