Just curious how many people collect logo balls and if you do, how do you prefer to display them?   I started collecting fairly recently and right now I probably only have about 30 and I keep them "displayed" in a drawer in my bedroom lol.  I'm looking to get a nice display case that I can put in my office.  Would be a nice conversation piece.


Aside from logo balls, do you collect anything else?  Ball markers?  Hats?  golf shirts?

Buy used balls from Lost Golf Balls. You can build your logo ball
collection rapidly as they always put plenty in there, even from
places you'll never have the chance to play. If you want them
pristine buy AAAAA rated only. Tell them you want all balls to
have logos on them that way the rest of us may get less of them.

I started to collect logo balls but then I found that it just took up space and I'd never use them. I prefer ball markers or divot tools for collecting.

I have a friend that used to work at a golf course, he has well over 1,000 logo golf balls.  He keeps them in stacking egg trays which hold (I believe) 30 each.  They are stacked all over his apartment.  His collection also includes several trays of the Ping 2-color golf balls.

IMO that ruins the point of collecting.  I only want logo balls from courses I played.  I want to be able to look at each ball and reminisce about playing that particular course.

I just went online and bought balls from Pebble Beach and Mahagony Run cause I played those courses nearly 30 years ago, way before I started collecting, so I want to add them to the collection.

I collect from courses I have played. I debate about if I should write the date and score on the back of the ball but so far have not done so. I display them in my office in those 100 ball display cases. I had hoped to fill one with the Top 100 course logo balls, but only have 12 of those so far.

Yes! I have collected them for quite a while.  I only collect logos from courses I have played.  I have 2, 72 ball displays that are full and have to get another display.  I display them on a wall in my family room.

I only have 3 dozen or so, but no display at this time.  It's one of those things I never think of buying.  

And they're only from courses I've played.  I remember being tempted to pickup one from Pinehurst (we were having lunch there), but didn't feel that it belonged in the collection.

Agreed, only courses I have played and also from pro tournaments I've been to. I also have one "wonder bra" logo ball. Couldn't get rid of that one.

I collect them from the courses I play, although sometimes they do get put in my trunk which seems to be a vortex where many golf related items vanish through. Ironically, I do not have a logo ball from the club that I am a member of. When they make it into the house they find their way to a wood case with a glass door, which is currently at the end of it's 52 ball limit.

Yep, along with course flags. I frame the flags and have custom shelves that are built for my office that hold the balls. Only display top end courses that I've played and my Hole in 1 Balls.

I have an 81 ball case that's full of balls from courses that I've played and 30-40 others waiting for a second case to be purchased.  I display them in my home office.   Unfortunately I started collecting AFTER I played Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill (and others, but those two are the best courses for which I don't have logo balls).

Same here.  I have found some neat ones on the course as well.  I have one with Old Grand Dad Whiskey and one a buddy gave me that has a picture of Bill Clinton on it and it says "Perfect Lie Every Time"   hehe.

As is obvious, I display my logo balls, as well as a few from my personal best rounds.

I used to buy one from every course I played . . . until the rack got filled.  Then I started to switch some lesser courses out as I added famous courses I played. I could have bought another rack I guess, but I'm liking the more refined collection. By the way, some of my treasured logo balls are from relatively unknown courses I grew up on, though Bethpage Black qualifies on both criteria.

The one downside to the whole hobby is that most logo balls they sell in resort pro shops are brands I don't like to play, so when I switched a few out of my rack I can't figure out what to do with them. Shag bag seems odd, as they're brand new.

Only courses I have played in a wall mounted display. I am missing a few from some tracks that I played pre collecting days and haven't been back:

Wolf Creek
Coyote Springs
Paiute (Snow)

Seems like there are a couple more i am forgetting but can't remember right now...

I collect bag tags and yardage books also, whatever I come across.

Two of my co-workers of mine and I always get three balls from whatever course one of us play away from our city, or any big event that one of us attends.
Just a fun thing to collect, inexpensive, and a good gesture to my golf buds!

Collected logo balls from courses I played for some time and still have them displayed but have quit collecting them.  Now I collect score cards from courses that I play.  Harder to display for sure.  Right now I have them in zip lock bags in alphabetical order.  May end up putting them in some type of photo album or something.  Prefer having the information on the courses I've played than a ball that I will never put in play.

I love to go to a new course and get the logo ball. I am not going to display a ball from some course I have never and will never go to. I like others have said like to look at them and remember the round.

I always grab an extra scorecard from different courses I play.  One day I will make up a photo album, scrapbook type binder to display them.  Until then they are just in a box.
