The golf ball has undergone many upgrades and enhancements throughout its long life with several distinct stages: Wooden - Used from the mid 15th century the first golf balls were made from hardwoods such as beech. Often used in conjunction with wooden clubs a round of golf would have been a particularly jarring experience. Featherie - In 1618 the Featherie golf ball was invented and was used for nearly 250 years. These balls were made by stuffing wet goose feathers into a hand stitched wet leather ball. As it dried the leather shrunk and the feathers expanded creating a hard and compact ball.

They produced low spin on drives to provide straight and long shots and yet provide high scoring spin for control and short game performance. Besides having a balanced performance these balls are also extremely durable. Both amateur players as well as tour professionals will be able to play this type of balls to produce maximum performance. Most of us will see an improvement in our golf scores if we can improve our short game performance. It has been identified that short game performance is the primary area where most golfers will see an improvement in their golf scores if they can improve on it. By using golf balls that performed in and around the greens without sacrificing control and distance will help these golfers improve their scores.

By 1890 golf balls were formed in iron moulds and the Bramble design with raised spherical bumps resembling a raspberry became the most popular ball of the Guttie era. Rubber - The advent of the rubber ball changed the face of golf as we know it. Invented by Coburn Haskell in 1898 it featured a solid rubber core wrapped in rubber thread. Early Gutta-percha covers soon gave way to the Balata cover that was introduced in the early 1900s. Although they looked like Gutties the average golfer could gain an extra 20 yards off the tee. So the guttie gave way to the aerodynamically superior dimple pattern first used in 1908 and still being used today.
