I ask that question because apparently, golf balls are terrible for the environment and they do not break down and decompose well. Researchers have found that it takes a golf ball 100 to 1000 years to decompose, and that it can be toxic under water when it does decompose.
Here's the full story:
Now, I did some searching for eco-friendly golf balls, because, let's face it, I am NOT a good golfer and I lose a few every time I hit the links. I found 2 different websites that sell them.
1) www.ecogolfballs.com/ - these golf balls are only 10 dollars a dozen, but they only fly about half the distance that a normal ball would go.
2) dixongolf.com/ - these golf balls go about as far as normal ones, but run about $40 a dozen.
So, as a NON professional golfer, until I see something more realistic or in my price range, I guess I'll be hitting the links with my good ol' Logo Overrun Balls that run me about $9 a dozen.
The weather has been rather nice lately, maybe I'll see you on the links one last time in 2009!
