Budget x choice

We love the game of golf, but it can often feel like a big investment in terms of time and money. This is especially the case when you find yourself sending golf balls into bodies of water or forests of trees more regularly than you’d like – it’s the same for all of us.

If you’ve tried different kinds of balls and can’t discern too much of a difference between them, you may be inclined to feel the more affordable golf balls tick all the boxes for your game.

However, if you’re good enough to get the most out of them, premium golf balls are designed to give you the perfect amount of feel and spin to get the most out of your game and shoot as low as you can.

At the end of the day, money and cost can be the dominant factor in deciding what kind of golf ball you’re most comfortable playing with. So, please read on as we discuss the latest Srixon golf balls on the market and how they fit into these different budget categories.


Affordable golf balls


We all know how it feels to lose balls out of bounds and have them sunk by water hazards and, if you’re a high-handicap player, this may be an all too familiar feeling.

When this happens, it can be easy to lose a bit of faith and replace them with any old ball. We’re here to tell you that’s never going to be the best move – finding the right golf ball for your game will lead to better shots and lower scores.

If you’re in the market for more affordable balls to play with, you can’t go wrong with the Soft Feel golf balls from Srixon.

As the name suggests, these balls feel incredibly soft. The FastLayer tech in the core transitions from a soft core to a firmer outer edge, the result of which gives the ball a great feel while giving you impressive distance when you launch them off the tee.

The ball has 338 dimples, and the pattern provides exceptional aerodynamics that help prologue your ball flight. The ionomer cover makes the ball very receptive and will give you the confidence you need to play your wedge shots just right around the greens.


Mid-range golf balls


If you’re a regular golfer but want to keep yourself aligned with a sensible budget, the AD333 balls are a fantastic choice.

This is currently the 10th generation of the iconic AD333 golf ball, so you can rest assured that Srixon have put the time in to make these balls better and more effective with each release.

Srixon has come up with a unique Spin Skin on the exterior of the ball that gives you incredible spin, so you’ll be in control and decide exactly where your ball goes when hitting into the green.

The AD333's FastLayer core adds both exceptional feel and speed to your strikes, resulting in you hitting it a long way down the fairway. The ball features a similar 338 dimple pattern to the Soft Feel ball to give you that steady ball flight, and you have the choice of playing with either the pure white or tour yellow colour variations.


The very best golf balls


If you’re an adept, single figure handicap player or an aspiring golfer, you’ll be looking to get the most out of your equipment when you hit the course. The Z-Star from Srixon will give you the exact amount of spin you’re looking for.

This ball has a 3-piece construction that includes a FastLayer DG core, a urethane cover, and a unique Spin Skin+ coating. This whole ensemble put together means you have a ball that feels incredibly soft, and is exceptionally receptive to spin with an impressive stopping power.

If you’re looking for a ball that feels great to strike from tee to green and will offer you a dependable performance each time you tee it up, the Z-Star will be a fine addition to your golfing gear.

Whatever your budget, we want you to get the most out of your golf. If you’re uncertain of what kind of ball you should be playing with and would like to seek our advice, we’re available and happy to help in the pro shop.
