Novelty Golf Balls

Novelty golf balls have become popular gift items today. They can be thoughtful gifts to golfers, friends or family and enthusiasts. With golf becoming more and more popular, not only in the west and first world countries but also in the east and the second and third world nations towards the close of the last century, demand for novelty golf balls has witnessed a concomitant rise.

A variety of golf balls are available in the market today. The most common ones are those with imprinted messages. These are steadily replacing cards as a means of conveying one’s feelings to golfers. Here, a distinction may be made between the playable and non-playable ones. The playable ones are branded balls imprinted with personal messages while the non-playable ones have a different make and structure to that of proper golf balls. The playable ones are generally more expensive.

The other types are the exploding golf balls. These tricky balls really pack a punch and can scare out people’s wits. These are carefully manufactured in such a manner that bodily harm is not an issue to be concerned about. All they emit is a loud exploding sound sans a real explosion. These balls are very popular among youngsters.

Another type of novelty golf ball is the wobbling ball. These are elastic and rubbery balls that wobble in a jelly like fashion when made to bounce off the floor. Albeit not a ball for the course, these balls translate into a lot of fun. Another popular one is the ball that delivers an electric shock. Small metal heads are hidden on the surface of the ball transmitting electric charges on intervals, ranging from five to ten seconds, when a small concealed button is depressed.
