Golf Ball Grading System

GolfBallsDirect.com owns a top-of-the-line cleaning system designed to clean and restore each golf ball back to its original state. Our white glove cleaning policy ensures that all golf balls we receive undergo thorough cleaning without damage providing the highest quality golf balls to our customers. We use a customized ball washing process where all our golf balls soak in our proprietary cleaning solution.

After cleaning, our used golf balls are carefully sorted by brand, model and grade AAAAA, AAAA and AAA golf balls.

We only source the highest grade golf balls. The overall condition of a golf ball determines the grade/category of the golf ball and how we determine the very good balls from the excellent golf balls.

The top three grades of used golf balls are listed below. The grade and rank determine the quality of the used golf ball.

AAAAA/1st quality is the highest grade

AAAA/2nd quality is the second highest grade

AAA/3rd quality is the lowest quality grade

Our golf ball descriptions explain the condition of each grade golf ball and what you can expect as a consumer. Please read the listings below for a detailed description of our grading scale.
