Costco’s Kirkland Golf Balls Review – Any Good Vs The Pro V1
In most cases, it’s not a great idea to stretch yourself thin.
When you try to do a million things well, you usually end up doing four or five things well. But Kirkland is a brand that has seemingly beaten the odds.
Most Kirkland products that I’ve tried have been high quality. And they make everything from vitamins to frozen foods. But when it comes to golf gear, the bar is set a little higher. Precise engineering and advanced technology is usually required to make the best golf gear.
This is especially true of golf balls. So can Kirkland golf balls really be any good? I tested them against the Titleist Pro V1 golf balls to find out.
Overview of the Kirkland Golf Balls
The Kirkland Signature golf balls have a 3-piece design with a urethane cover.
The cover features a 338-dimple pattern and the core is made of a highly elastic rubber material. The compression is in the midrange.
Like the Titleist Pro V1 balls, the Kirkland Signature golf balls were designed to provide low long game spin and high short game spin. They attempt this variable spin rate by creating a 3-piece mantle.
Overview of the Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls
The design specs for the Titleist Pro V1 golf balls are actually very similar to those of the Kirkland Signature balls.
For instance, the Titleist Pro V1 is also a three-piece golf ball with a mid compression rating.
The Titleist Pro V1 golf balls also have a cast urethane cover. However, the Titleist Pro V1 balls have a gradient core design. This means that the core is soft but the outer layers get increasingly firm. Again, this helps keep long game spin down and short game spin high.
Another difference is that the Titleist Pro V1 balls have a 388-dimple pattern while the Kirkland Signature balls have a 338-dimple pattern.
