Golf Balls And Tennis Balls
As many athletically inclined retirees might recall, Costco’s highly lauded Kirkland Signature golf balls first hit the market in 2016 — and promptly sold out nationwide. At the time, the balls were being compared to the highly regarded Titleist Pro V1. Yet, a Costco-branded golf ball retailed for 60% less than a Titleist. Kirkland Signature golf balls are back on Costco shelves just as the snowbirds are flocking south and just in time for the holidays. We can’t guarantee your game will improve, but we can guarantee you’ll save a few bucks.
Retirement also means more time for tennis. Costco serves a good deal on Penn Championship Extra Duty tennis balls. A case of 60 balls (20 cans) was selling for $38.99, or about 65 cents per ball. Target offered a 4-can pack of the same Penn tennis balls for $8.69, or more than 74 cents per ball. At Walmart, a 6-can pack ran $21.99, or $1.22 per ball. Not even Dick’s Sporting Goods could top Costo’s price. The specialty retailer was selling a case of 36 Penn balls (12 cans) for $24.99, or just over 69 cents per ball.
