Golf Ball Hunting=Money Making Opportunity

While my mom and niece, McKenzie, were here we had to go on a golf ball hunt. It was a blast and we found about 100 golf balls. (Can't believe I didn't get a picture of them) Anyway....
Here is McKenzie ready for the "hunt"
Our first "capture".
Here she is finding more.
The muddy feet of the great" hunters" at the end of the" hunt".
The best part was when we met up with a golfer. He had hit his ball off the tee and lost it up on the fairway.(are those the right terms?) Anyway, he asked us if we had found it. We hadn't but McKenzie went back a little way from where the man was and she found it. McKenzie returned the golf ball to him and he gave McKenzie $2. It was an awesome day.

Having lived on a golf course for a dozen years, I can tell you that, if you wash the balls and bring them to the pro shop, they will probably buy them from you. They aren't worth a lot when they're used, but there is a market for them.

You may be dirty but it was well worth the treasure hunt! Have a super week!!! (Found you through Candace BTW.) :O)

What a fun activity. I'm sure McKenzie loved it. That girl is up for anything.

I had no idea that there was money in golf ball finding. I may have a new career after all! Love the muddy feet photo! I would frame that one if I were you! Happy Wednesday, Candace

I've heard of people doing this and it's a pretty good way of making a little extra cash! Looks like everyone had fun!

BTW one of my best friends is having a birthday soon! Yahoooooo!

I am thrilled that there are still some people out there that would reward the young lady for her deed. And even happier that she returned the golf ball! Maybe, there is hope.

Having been balling for over 40 years (on and off you understand not continuously) I can tell you that you can't make much money from finding golf balls.

Take them to a pro shop and the crook will probably give you a nickel a ball (and he'll probably resell them for $1 or so each!!).

All I do is collect them, and I wish I had a bigger house to store them in...

My husband and his buddy still love to collect golf balls in those out of the way places that no one else is willing to hunt in. They usually get a pretty good catch, too!

Then they come home and wash them all in the sink and split 'em up.

Funny, huh?

That sounds like you all had lots of fun! haha like a scavenger type hunt that is already set up for you :o) We lived on a golf course for a couple of years, and our kids would go "hunting" sometimes too.

Blessings & Aloha!
