I did collect logo balls for several years for all the courses I played, even had a display case for them!  But over time that collection grew and the amount of balls collected became to much.  I eventually paired them down to several that were memorable.  As for the rest of them I went to the range and hit them all!

l did know a guy that collected pencils from all the courses he played. A bit more manageable.

I’m missing a few from courses that closed through the years because I started collecting them later in my golfing life. All in all I have 90 and I’m missing about 10.

I have a few but the large chunk of courses I have played never had logo balls.  I am thinking of starting up a collection now

I used to collect them, and had many of them. I never did display them but it got to be a bit boring to me. They just accumulated and we're in different spots around the house. They are usually cheaper balls that I don't play so I just got rid of them all via some sort of practice activity. Nobody really cares that much where I have been and where I am going so I didn't see any benefit and saving them.

Do you save a logo ball from each course you play? How many logo balls do you have?

I do, but I only have about 55-60. I don’t travel much (not my thing) and so I don’t often play new courses

I'm pretty sure in my whole golfing life I've never bought a logo ball from a golf course. It never even crossed my mind. 

I'm not a collector of anything though. I have a few score cards here and there, but those are more because I stuffed them in my bag and forgot about them. I used to occasionally keep a yardage book or two, but not so much as a souvenir but because I would want to use it to play the course. In today's world electronic stuff has made the yardage book pretty obsolete. 

I have bought a hat or two, but again, those are to wear not collect.

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

about the only thing I do collect. Have one case displaying balls from courses in state and the other from out of state/out of country. Each case holds 63, have 9 left to go in Oregon, 31 from out of state. As some have mentioned, some courses don't have or were out of...and some of those (Primm Valley comes to mind) were so far out of way that I will likely never get them. Still bitter...

As others have said, I don't collect logo balls (or divots, pencils, cards, etc ...). It would be nice to have a large collection but for me it takes too much room and trouble.  How about some photos?

Mr. Kuehn... collecting (a few) divots is the real thing.  All that other stuff is just profiteering by the course.  😁

I enjoy looking at the balls from courses I played and they brings back happy memories. The people I played with and the places I traveled to. Life is really about memories.

I have a friend that collects logo balls of all kinds, not just of courses, Law firms, beverages, automobile companies, plumbers - you name it. Trades with other collectors around the world and has around 24,000 logos to date, all listed and categorized on his website. I've donated quite a few logo balls to his collection.

    • Gotcha. Don't remember it being that short in Paige episode (the only other one I watched in it's entirety), but to be fair I wasn't paying close attention to the hole lengths. 😜
    • Probably relative to the other courses he has played in the break 50 series. He's done them all from the front tees.
    • So this wasn't a bad watch. For a guy pushing age 80 he strikes the ball well. I mean, if I am doing what he is doing 30 years from now, count me in. Imma pass on that putting stroke though.... wow. That's saying something with my putting skills. Not making fun of it but it's almost like he had to keep the putter from falling out of his hands after impact every time. Not sure if that's a recent thing but it plays out like some neurological condition.   BDC claims 'it's a hard course' to break 50, and then proceed to play putt-putt tees with 320-yard par 5s.. lol. Dood drove almost every par 5 from the tee. Anyway, not exactly the 'greatest round of golf that has ever been played' as expectedly self-advertised by 45, but I've certainly seen worse by far. 
    • Long time since I've posted. I've been working through some really hard swing changes and admitting that I needed to nearly start over to actually get better. I shot almost the best 9 hole 44 of my life this morning while actually playing by the rules. I'm trying to legitimize my golf game, keep a real handicap and work past being just a weekend hack to someone who can maybe play actual bogey golf somewhat regularly. Had a couple disastrous double bogeys that kind of blew up my score. Favorite shot was an absolutely pured baby draw 5i about 180yds on a par 3 with a 2 putt for par.
