GOLF BALL CONDITION GRADING SCALE

NEW: These are brand new golf balls, unused.

NEW w/Logo: These are brand new golf balls, unused but contain a corporate or personal logo.

AAAAA/Mint: This is our top grade. Balls classified as AAAAA are in MINT condition. These balls may have been hit once or twice on the golf course and retain the white look of new golf balls.  Balls with corporate logos and player markings may be found in the lot.

AAAA/Near Mint: These balls are in near MINT condition. Negligible cosmetic blemishes on a few dimples may be found in these balls but none that affect the trajectory, distance or flight of the ball. The shine and color of these balls may vary very little. Balls with corporate logos and player markings may be found in the lot. 

AAA/Value: These balls are the best value for the money and are in good playing condition. Our AAA balls will have blemishes and scuffs but will not have cuts (gash that goes through the cover and into the inner layer of the ball) or very large scuffs (large scrapes on the outer cover) that affect the trajectory, distance or flight of the ball.  The shine and color of these balls may vary. Balls with corporate logos and player markings of all shapes and sizes may be found in the lot. May include a few balls marked as X-Out or Practice.

AA/Shag: These balls will have some imperfections that qualify them for your shag bag. These may include balls that are heavily scuffed and/or discolored, and may even include some minor cuts. They are perfect for chipping around and general practice but are not recommended as playable balls for most golfers.  Some beginners may sometimes find some balls in the lot suitable for play, but we recommend them for Shag/Practice use. Balls with corporate logos and player markings of all shapes and sizes may be found in the lot.

A/Hitaway: These balls will have blemishes and scuffs and maybe some with cuts.  Balls with corporate logos and player markings may be found in the lot. We recommend these balls for those looking to hit balls where you don’t have to worry about retrieving them again (Lake, Desert, Woods, etc). Most if not all of these balls are typically C/D grade range balls.  Please refer to the descriptions of Hitaway or Shag above, depending on what you wish to purchase.
