Many of us are starting to feel the burden of being cooped up inside this month due to COVID 19. Although we can’t go outside does not have to mean out golf has to suffer. The ladies and I at Women Who Golf, have devised a list of the best at-home practice golf balls you can use. There are several different sections catered towards needs and living arrangements.  

Best for inside and outside Callaway HX Practice Golf Balls
Best for long game The Birdie Ball
Best for limited space Crown Sporting Goods Plastic Golf Ball
Best All-Rounder The Foam Ball
Best for mums & kids Intech Practice Ball
Best for golfers and cats Wiffle Practice Ball

Best for Inside & Outside –  Callaway HX Practice Golf Balls

The Callaway HX Practice golf balls are made from EVA high-quality foam and designed with a unique hex pattern. They were designed this way to mimic practicing with a real golf ball, making it a very popular choice for a practice ball. If you are trying to improve your gameplay, then an appropriate ball is super important. The fly is quite like a real golf ball and comes in either, green, orange and pink making it easy to locate. These are safe for indoor and outdoor practice, making it a perfect option to keep on top of your game. 

Overall, reviews on Amazon said this is a great golf ball to help you practice your game, especially if you’re a beginner to intermediate golfer. They are great to practice with and won’t break a window. They come highly recommended!

Best For Long Game – The Birdie Ball

The Birdie Ball is the newest product and many people in the industry are raving about it. Shaped like a napkin holder, these training aids draw and fade just like a real golf ball but are limited to a 40-yard (36.5 meters) flight distance. They are not shaped like golf balls so they won’t roll like one, however, they’re perfect for hitting and in your backyard. 

Whether you are a beginner or a professional golfer, this ball is perfect for improving and practicing your swing technique.

Best for Budget – The Foam Ball With Dimples 

 These golf balls aren’t dimpled and don’t spin like a true golf ball would, but they’re an excellent stand-in that won’t damage anything in your home.

Superb practice balls. The sponge has just enough density so that the ball flies off the club and travels plenty far enough. But equally, if it hits anything around yours or your neighbors’ properties there’s no risk of damage.
