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. This time consuming process ensured the price was out of reach of the masses, often selling for more than the price of a club.
Our Recommendation. Multi-layer golf balls are best for the better player who can appreciate the benefits of extra spin control over and above distance. Wound. Much less common in todays game, wound golf balls have a central core that has been wrapped in rubber thread and then usually covered in Balata cover. These balls tend to be less durable and often will not hold up to the average players round. They offer fantastic feel and have great spin, though, stopping faster on the green - but the trade-off is a lack in distance. Also, their performance is affected by the temperature, with their distance and overall performance deteriorating in temperatures below 20°C.
