Custom logo golf balls – tournament, pre-order & high school discounts

custom logo golf ballsLooking for custom logo golf balls? Here’s four secrets to reduced discount pricing for your tournament, event, and gift needs.

  1. Preorder in the fall for the next year delivery. Advance ordering can shave dollars off every dozen, though larger minimums apply. For extra large orders, balls can be shipped to multiple locations or shipped on multiple delivery dates.
  2. Ask for tournament pricing.  The tournament date and event name are imprinted on the opposite side of logo, for reduced pricing.
  3. High school pricing.  Golf ball manufacturers want to help grow the game of golf, and reducing golf ball prices is one way of giving back.
  4. Volume logo golf ball ordering. Price breaks are at 24, 48, 120, 240, and 500 dozen.

There’s two types of custom logo golf balls: those that are made at the golf ball manufacturer, and those that are made at a third party promotional products service company. We cannot attest to any specific companies, but users have reported quality issues with the ink coming off cheap third party suppliers with as little as one hit. One way to potentially distinguish is the minimum order. For logo balls only, the big brand manufacturers have a 12 dozen minimum, while 3rd parties often offer a 6 dozen minimum. CEOgolfshop only sells golf balls custom made at the manufacturer imprinting factory.

New 2013 Titleist Pro V1 & Pro V1x Golf Balls vs Golfballzone

A customer ordered our discounted custom golf balls special the other day, getting a free dozen of Titleist Pro V1x. He shared that he usually paid about $27 a dozen for Pro V1 logo overrun balls at Clearly if the manufacturer was offering a better deal to other vendors, we’d want to know about it. However, upon researching that is not the case at golfballzone.

Per their web site, Golfballzone sells only USED golf balls. They have a 3 point grading system:

  1. GRADE A BALLS. Grade “A” are “Like New.”
  2. GRADE B BALLS. Grade “B” are great condition balls that just miss grade “A.”
  3. VALUE GRADE BALLS. They may have a small scuff, minor discoloration or the previous owners mark.

CEOgolfshop sells only new custom golf balls. All custom logo and personlization imprinting is done at the factory.

Golfballzone sells used balls in loose bulk bags.

CEOgolfshop golf balls are shipped in original manufacturing packaging, ready for your personal use or gift giving.

While there is clearly a market for each type of golf ball, CEOgolfshop sells golf balls that are new, and are personally customized for you.  Our prices are among the lowest in the industry, and we have special pricing for tournaments and large volume corporate purchasing. So many silly things can impact a players game. I wear nice golf clothes because they make me feel good and I think that gives me an edge. I prefer to play golf balls that have my name or saying or company logo, or of one that a friend gave me, because that also makes me feel good. For me personally, playing a golf ball with a random name or logo on a regular basis would do nothing to enhance my super powered mental game, and could even have a negative effect. And in the game of golf, negativity just doesn’t belong in my days thoughts.

See through golf grips comparison – Showtime vs C-THRU

The transparent golf grip market is heating up between two manufacturers. Showtime grips, formerly I-SEE grips, a Florida based company, offers patented putter and tour wrap golf grips, as well as other sports grips. C-THRU offers ten different golf grips.


I wouldn’t install my own golf grips, would you? You could do it at home, but let’s look at how the pros install them. Any grip installer can install Showtime golf grips using the same materials they use for other grip brands. C-THRU grips are installed with hair spray, and an air compressor.

One of the most common questions I’m asked is will the design fade or otherwise deteriorate?  Showtime uses proprietary paper and inks designed for long lasting protection from the sun and heat. I’ve been using Showtime grips for about a year now, and my clubs are often kept in the trunk of my car, in the Florida heat. They look the same as new. I have no information about C-THRU grips to comment on their life, but the product owners I’ve met had nothing negative to say about them.


I’ve introduced Showtime Grips to several golfers who already owned C-THRU grips. Their responses? “WOW” and “This really has a nice feel.” There is a discernable difference in tackiness and feel. As to the life of the grip, we invite users of both to add their comments below.

note: I-SEE grips are the same as Showtime. After the passing of one of the original owners, a new company was formed.


Showtime components, including the grip and polybag are made overseas. The graphic print, and product packaging assembly are made in USA.

C-THRU web site says Made in USA.


Showtime Grips strictly adheres to trademark rights of all custom grips produced. Logo use by unauthorized requestors are not accepted. For example, I’ve had requests for Rolex, BMW, and college logo grips from individuals that did not have specific rights to use those trademarked logos, and thus they were turned away. On the other hand, we’re working with some of those entities now, and consumers may be able to buy those items through us or the entities that own the trademarks in the future.

C-THRU web site says they offer officially licensed product from the NFL, MLB, NHL, NCAA, the Armed Forces, and United Nations, as of October 2012.

I recommend users verify licenses before buying items that have trademarked logo’s on the internet. One of the easiest methods I use to decide whom I will do business with- does the site offer company information, ownership, address and phone number? Does the price seem to match up with the brand value? Does the brand offer the item in their official store, if applicable? Does the licensed product have the consistent branding of other official products?
