Recycled Golf Balls are similar to eggs. They are washed, brand and type sorted and then individually Hand Graded by color and cover condition. The recycled balls are sorted into Mint, A-Grade and Practice-Grade (Grade R) condition so the consumer can choose the quality and price point they wish to purchase. For a closer look at the grading standards please see the chart below. The pictures are for illustration purposes only and we do not grade using the pictures as our standard. The pictures are there to illustrate or explain in way that words simply cannot.
