Costco Kirkland Signature Golf Balls Back in Stores

Published

on

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.

    97% of all golfers worldwide cannot take advantage of these high performance balls because their impact dynamics are faulty. They could play any cheap golf ball but will buy a ProV or Kirkland for status and to salve their neurotic angst… 😛

    I am having zero luck in Canada finding these balls in Costco stores!. I have been to at least 10 different Costco locations hoping to find these on the shelf, and nada… zip!. It amazes me that Costco haven’t restocked faster with the crazy demand for it.

    I think it is a shame that Costco does not offer the ball online. It can only be a deliberate act meant to create higher demand. I was excited to try the ball but will not simply based on principle and what I see as unfair marketing practice by Costco.

      I’ve bought them online before, but they sold out really quickly. Went back a week later to order two more boxes and they were already sold out.

    I wonder if it is true that he South Korea company that made the ball lost it’s contract to make Taylormade balls for the Asian market??? If true they will have plenty of time to make Kirkland balls…..

    I’m honestly laughing at some of these comments. People going this insane over this ball, when there are so many other options out there that not only are in stock, but are available now, without all the time and money wasted calling and driving all over just to get a ball that will probably be sold out in an hour or two. MGGolf make a ProV1 type ball for $20 a dozen. It’s no secret, and they are always in stock, and I don’t have to drive anywhere to get them. Best turnaround time for orders of any company. Order on a Monday; have it in the mail on Wednesday. But you guys carry on with the stupidity.

      No kidding, driving around everywhere and making phone calls. I can go to Dick’s and get some Srixon Trispeed Tour Balls for as low as $12 a dozen with promotions and coupons and they are legit, I’ll check the MGGOLF ball out now.

    Called my local Costco about these balls. Having worked there, I was confident that I would get an honest response. They told me the balls had been pulled off the floor due a lawsuit (I assume with Acushnet). I find that interesting as other posters said they were able to buy the balls.

    Spoke to a Costco employee at the store featured in this article. He stated they sold out within two hours. Five box limit per customer with limited supply equals little chance of scoring any unless you where in the right place at the right time.

    Irvine Costco has none and never had them they tell me as of 1 hour ago.

    For anyone that thinks Costco cannot keep supplying this level a ball for such a low price..Rockbottom golf was selling a 4 piece Urethane ball for $17.50 a dozen when buying two or more the other day called Callaway Hex Pro. I’m sure if Callaway can stamp their name on a 4 piece Urethane ball in the budget range Costco will have no problems finding a source…

    Apr 8, 2017 at 4:54 pm

    What they had at Palm Desert, CA COSTCO were the same as their initial batch, IMHO I think this article should have been withheld until it was officially announced they were going to be available, all this caused was another case of hoarding by flippers to make money and left those who want to try them out again.

    Apr 8, 2017 at 1:25 am

    More like; for the guy who doesn’t want to pay inflated prices for essentially the same product.

    Any word if they are going to release a LH version?

    • Double Mocha Tan

      I have a 4 handicap, but haven’t heard if LH version is coming.

    Apr 7, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    Not available in the Norfolk, VA store. I was told by an employee there that they never had them last year when they were all the rage. Apparently they won’t be available online.

    Haven’t seen anything here in Vegas. Have a friend that works at the worlds largest store in Salt Lake City (235,000 sq ft.). He thinks they’ll get some soon.

    Curious…..is the Titleist Promo (Buy 3 get 1 free) a response to this ball??

    • TR1PTIK

      Apr 7, 2017 at 2:07 pm

      Titleist has been doing that every year for at least a few years now. Nothing new. People do know there are other brands besides Titleist and Ksig right? No way would I drive an hour or more just to pick up an overrun of some product that Costco has rebranded and repackaged. I’ll pay the little bit extra to get Vice golf balls delivered to my doorstep. Oh wait, I already did that and now I’m stocked for the whole season…

  18. Matty

    Apr 7, 2017 at 11:33 am

    Good, but are they available in Canada??

  19. Dale Doback

    Apr 7, 2017 at 10:40 am

    Are they the same 4 piece tour ball or did they change them to a different overrun product?

        From a manager at the Covington, WA store. Doesn’t sound like that many to me.

    I checked with the rep in Torrance (Los Angeles county) CA, and she rattled off a few (3) stores in Southern California (mostly in the Palm Springs area) that had orders waiting for delivery. Then she told me that the Laguna Nagell Costco was stocked with one pallet. I immediately hit the freeway while getting the store on the phone to verify.

    By the time I got there one hour after opening at 11 AM half the power was sold. Needless to say I got mine

    • Mad-Mex

    A real GolfWRX fan would have taken a circular saw to the store and cross cut them right then and there!

    • coolhandbirdman

      Apr 7, 2017 at 8:37 pm

      a hand held band saw would be much more suitable but id like to see some one try and cut a golf ball with a circular saw.

      • Ambulance to aisle 4.

        Apr 8, 2017 at 1:46 am

        I’d like to see you try with a hand held bandsaw also to be honest. Both you dudes are losing fingers.
        PVC pipe cutter. Too easy.

      You can try them with any handicap. Costco won’t make you bring your handicap card with you.

        Maybe he can play them in British Open this Summer

    I have read they were coming out with a different ball that is a little different but don’t know if these are the different ones or not.

    US only?

  34. xjohnx

    Apr 6, 2017 at 10:52 am

    Based on what we know about how the old ball came to be, is it safe to assume this might not be the exact same ball?

    • cgasucks

      Apr 6, 2017 at 11:20 am

      Possibly. The original wave of those balls were actually overstocked inventory of TM balls that Nassau wanted to blow out through the back door. I’m a little surprised that they kept the same price point for the same amount of balls. There is a good chance it could be a slightly different ball that might not perform as well as the original batch. I hope I’m wrong.

      • john

        Apr 6, 2017 at 8:16 pm

        nope, original ball was a rebranded Nassau Quattro, these are still rebranded Nassau Quattros. Love golf, the rumors spread so strongly it’s hilarious, they’re not Nassau’s they’re Miura’s!

    • Billy T.

      Apr 6, 2017 at 9:51 pm

      Same ball, same packaging, made in Korea, same everything….

  35. cgasucks

    Apr 6, 2017 at 10:47 am

    Horray! I hope they have enough balls in stock to satisfy the huge demand for them!
