I've tried the White Colour golf balls. They fly quite well.
Can see the contrast between the blue sky and the white ball.

Only thing is it always gets lost whenever it gets into the cup, cos the cup is white in colour too, so usually can't really see the ball properly.

even better... camo balls which you lose even before they get into the cup

Ahaha thanks for the feedback.
I was gaming to get some yellow balls, not sure if it comes in other colours.
At least one look i know its my ball if within my flight no one is using it.
so was really wanting to know anyone using it and how they feel about hitting it or is it distracting when playing the ball, other than white balls.

Tried yellow balls, no, don't think they are easier to find compared to white balls, from the fact that I lost as many balls in one game, 9 to be exact, Rolling Eyes

yellow balls if they fall into the rough may be hard to find... they look like tree leaves

Last saturday, I tried using a yellow Titleist ball, it's easier to locate your ball on fairway.

At least u can spot your ball and spend less time going to each white ball to check whether it's your or other player.

But from far, can't really tell the colour as Titleist is on a brighter yellow colour.

yup it's easier to locate on the fairway... but if you're like me and like to have a challenge by constantly playing in the rough... it can be hard to find. you can't really differentiate between yellow leaves.

you can use a white ball and mark it using a pink marker or something. that should work too..

Laughing True. It's tough to spot when in rough.

I always uses white ball as I think colored ball are for ladies, but now many brands starts to have yellow in colour. So any golfer can have their choice of white or colored as long as the ball compression suits you.

Thanks for the input, i guess i will stick to white balls, and maybe as what costajos suggested, i will use colour marker to make the ball "distinctive" Smile

I originally used yellow balls. I subsequently switched back to white coz I think it is far easier to spot.

I wept when I hit my yellow ball cos I can't see where it was flying.

My caddy wept more when she saw it flying anywhere except on the fairway and green.

Bought a few boxes of multi-coloured balls recently (forgot which brand) for wifey to use but ended up using it myself cos she stopped playing.

I would say, it's not easy to spot if shot is wayward or ball land in rough or fairways littered with yellow/green coloured leaves. Probably ok if u hit fairways consistantly like ladies who are generally hitting it short and straight.

Reduces the possibility of playing wrong ball or other players from borrow fairway hitting your ball etc.
