Once I played with a group of ladies and when we got to the first green, it looked like an Easter egg hunt was underway. There were fuchsia, yellow, light blue and lavender balls all sitting on green around the flag stick. There was also one lone white ball (we added a fifth person to our group, a guy).
Some people find colored balls amateurish or childish. So what? I’m not going to Q School or playing in the LPGA. I want to have fun and enjoy myself on the golf course. So when I can easily find my ball, I spend more time thinking about my club selection and how to approach the shot, which is where my mental energy is best spent while playing. Which translates into more fun. So ladies, stock your golf bag with balls in every color of the rainbow! No one will find it amateurish or childish when you sink that that bright pink ball for par.
Now get out there and play!
