Golf balls are one of the cheapest, yet most important purchasing decisions to make if you want to get any good at this game. After all, it's the one piece of golf equipment you use on every shot out there. 

While we could definitely not put you off the latest premium batch of balls such as the impressive TP5 and TP5x balls from TaylorMade, or the Pro V1 and Pro V1x from Titleist, we have compiled what we consider to be the five standout golf balls for amateurs this season that don't bust quite so much of a hole in the wallet. 

 

Our choices range from £13 to £25 per dozen and we believe each of them offers something for every type of game-improvement golfer, ranging from superb feel around the greens, plenty of zip and control with those wedges, and excellent distance and accuracy off the tee.
