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.
Excellent Condition — The look and feel of this ball is similar to a new golf ball. This golf ball will appear to have little or no physical imperfections. [do we need a disclosure statement, i.e. Player markings and logos will be included at random]
Very Good Condition — The quality of this golf ball will be similar to a golf ball that has been used 2-3 holes. The look and feel may have slight discoloration and imperfections in some of the dimples. [do we need a disclosure statement, i.e. Player markings and logos will be included at random]
Good Condition — Our AAA used golf balls may have slight imperfections and scuff markings. The look and feel may appear to have minor discoloration and some printed balls may contain blemishes. [do we need a disclosure statement, i.e. Player markings and logos will be included at random]
