Anybody able to get the Kirkland Signature golf balls? Are they really as good as or better than ProV1s? Costco in Lexington, Ky won't stock them until they sell a pallet of Calloway's they've had since they opened in 2013! Costco's online site sold out in about 30 minutes but they are showing up on EBay for 2 and 3 times the price so there must be something special about them.

have not tried myself,but my son,a Prov1x user exclusively,has tried them and said they are absolutely just like a titleist,yet wayyyy cheaper-and i had him try the Snell ball,which he did not like,but the Kirkland ball in his opinion will hurt titleist if the price stays low

Ebay prices are retarded. I'll keep my Wilson Staff Duo ball. To me it's just as good as the Pro V's and half the cost

No Costco near me but when I need to restock my ProV1's, I just contact the good doctor.

Silly question. Of course it is.

Silly question. Of course it is. Certainly isn't Dr. Galea.

I went back over to Costco yesterday to see if by chance they might have some of the Kirkland golf balls out for sell. Nope, that huge pallet of Calloway still there. They will never sell those balls.

When the manager told me they weren't going to stock any more golf balls until that pallet was sold, I said "you don't play golf, do you?"

I'd like to have a dozen just to see how they are but I won't go to E-bay.

Just checked the COSTCO web site for the Kirkland balls availability (like I've been doing almost daily) and they have been removed altogether..only the Calloway X-Soft are available now. I guess a golf ball can be too popular. I look for the Korean company producing them to begin a big marketing campaign under their own brand and COSTCO will make a quick exit from the golf ball business. :-(

That's funny John, I did the very same thing this morning. Calloway only now. I had my cousin in Ft Myers looking there but I guess he won't have any luck either.

I'm dying to get a sleeve of these or dozen to try out at some point, but I'm not going to pay a premium for them so just going to have to wait until they get more in stock and hope to pick up some.

Exhibiting at a golf show this weekend as www.drmulligans.com the question about Kirkland balls has by far been the most asked question. I've had at least 20 people ask if we carried them. We've gone through over 100000 balls in the last month and I have yet to see a single one in our sorting. Through many conversations, I gather that the balls are from South Korea and that there may be a copyright infringement with another ball manufacturer and that Costo has removed them from their stores and website because of it. Is that correct? I don't know but many people are saying the very similar stories to this.
