Dixon Golf Balls

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has heard about these Earth-Friendly Golf Balls. The website is pretty, but not a lot of substance.

They have a program that you get .50 credit for golfballs you send in to them and a full 1.oo for used Dixon balls. The credit is for future purchases from them.

I like the idea and would probably pay $2 a ball, but I could only find them on ebay for about $40 per dozen.

Does that seem like a good price to anyone? What would you pay to be a better steward of the planet?

I would buy them for that price - if they play well.

I agree with recyclable-material goals, but I'm not going to buy an expensive ball that feels like crap of the club, just for eco-friendliness.

Any idea if they are any good - as golf balls?

The website says that they are comparable to ProV1 and other top of the line balls, and they have endorsements with Pros and Long-Drive Pros.

After looking at the website a little closer, it almost seems as if you can only recycle through a retailer, as well as only get them through a retailer. So right now it doesn't really seem to have a far reaching market.

These golf balls are the best out there bar none, as has been stated they are eco-friendly and they are extremely high performance. They are available on-line through their web site or you can buy them online at Golfsmith.com and also available at PGA Tour Superstores. I have played the Earth, Wind, and Fire and they are all great i personally prefer the earth because it is more affordable and more appropriate for my game.

They're more than twice as expensive as Wilson Eco Cores were. The Eco Core provided decent distance (and distance control) but it's a lower spin ball - good for rainy days and practice rounds.

"Best out there bar none"?       Hmmm, with the name "greengolfer" and a post that reads like a press release, you wouldn't be associated with Dixon are you?

Whatsamatter wit you? You don't like the Earth now? Mother Earth isn't worth $50 per dozen balls all of a sudden? For all we know this could very well be the best biodegradable ball since the first generation Pro V1.

Dixon Balls?

Dicks and Balls.

What are we talking about here?

Unfortunate name for the company TBH

If I was in a golf store and a salesman was showing me some golf balls and said

"Here we have some Dixon golf balls....."

I would hope there were no other patrons around

"WHAT'D YOU CALL ME?"

Well, Mother Earth wasn't too kind to me the last couple times I played - one of her trees jumped out in front of a perfect tee shot, a little knoll of hers made a great approach shot bounce into the lake, and some of her rough was pretty punishing on my pitch shots.    So until she decides to play fair, I say to hell with her and I'm going to use every eco-warrier weapon I can find.    Non-biodegradable balls, clubs that come out of smoke-belching foundries in China, plastic tees, drive to the course with a big gas-sucking V8, and maybe even walk around the course spraying aerosol cans just to mess with the ozone.      That'll teach her!

BTW, the $50/dozen balls are a lot, but it takes a lot of marketing guts for them to sell the "Fire" ball for a whopping $75 a dozen.   For that price the damn things ought to putt themselves right into the hole every time.

There's nothing Eco-friendly about a golf course.  Ever wonder why the ponds are weed free?  You don't get to see the guys in the Hazmat suits with air packs injecting some really toxic poisons into the greens to kill Nematodes.

I was playing a scramble last week and a Dixon rep was giving away free balls, so naturally I used them, I was shocked at how much further I could hit them, not sure what the difference is, but they really fly

Well, I was playing Nitro balls, and I am such a "great" golfer and they are such great balls that I hit them so far I couldn't find them, and I buy the bright colors :)
