When golfers everywhere were distracted with the start of The Masters, Costco was busy stocking shelves with golf’s most controversial golf ball, the Kirkland Signature. On Thursday morning in Costco’s Livonia, Mich., location, we spotted Costco’s Kirkland Signature Tour Performance golf balls being sold at the price of $29.99 for two dozen.
After appearing on the USGA golf ball conforming list in early March, it seemed that the release of a new “Kirkland Signature Performance One” golf ball was inevitable. That speculation seems to have been proven false, at least for now. The golf balls we photographed have the same sidestamp and markings as the original Tour Performance ball, indicating that they use the same construction.
The only difference we found between the original “K Sigs” and the new golf balls we photographed is the packaging. The sleeves we spotted use a blue color around the Kirkland Signature logo that was black in the original release.
According a Costco representative, the golf balls are currently available at select locations around the country. On a related note, Costco has since filed a complaint against Acushnet — Titleist’s umbrella company — in United States Federal Court where it’s seeking declaratory judgement.
