Dixon Golf Has Green Balls
By Kickntrue on 7/18/08
Everything seems to be going green and Dixon Golf is trying to make a splash by introducing new golf balls that are made of 100% recyclable material. They also claim to not lose any playability. Not only are the "Dixon Earth" balls made of recyclable material- but they've also introduced a program where you can send them back used and bruised balls to be recycled and you received your next package at a big discount. Of course you could have problems if you're like me and you don't wear out your balls as much as you lose them. Tough to send back something you can't find.

Uhhhh, what??? You've got to be kidding! Send me some test balls and I'll send you back some test results! What other gimmicks are golf ball manufacturers going to come up with? As one of my old college professors used to say: "If it's too good to be true, it ain't!" Recycleable golf balls at no cost??? What's the scam? What's the cost? What's the "True Story?" Please don't insult my lower than average IQ!
PJ- It didn't say anywhere they were free...?
I think he meant "no cost" as in performance cost (I hope). I'm totally down with recyclable golf balls. For some reason I have an aversion to playing a ball for more than one round. These would save me a ton of money, but last time I checked urethane wasn't exactly "green."
I feel like its a little deceptive. When I see "green" ball, I think it means biodegradable.

and I was thinking how hard it would to find about everywhere, but in the dead fall grass, LOL
Kickntrue: They should be free! At least the first six dozen! I use that many during one round of play just to make sure they are worthy of buying! So, "Dixon" send me 72 of your balls and I'll give you an honest opinion! Ha! And then pigs will fly!!!
Re: Notice of changes to program:
You have ripped me off!
Dixon golf balls is a ripoff! Dixon made me an offer a couple of months ago.
Send us $30 plus shipping and handling and we will send you postage-free certificates for 90 golf balls, three balls at a time.
Fine! I sent the money and Dixon sent me a book of certificates. Not a bad price for 30 golf balls that would take a long time to get but would give Dixon a marketing plus Right? Wrong!
Yesterday I get a notice from Dixon that it could no longer afford to send the 3-ball sleeves postage-free. Now I have to send them $2.22 with each certificate. Now the balls cost me more than a dollar each. I think it was a gimmick to get me sucked in.
Dixon made a contract with me which I, and they, agreed to and both signed. They need to honor this contract.
Now I either pay the $2.22 for shipping and handling or I am stuck with 15 balls that I paid $2.47 each. I can buy ProV1s for that price. I will surely be blogging about this ruse.

Dixon Golf continues to offer the world's first high-performance, eco-friendly products through national retailers and online at dixongolf dot com.

I have to say that I have come to love Dixon Golf Balls. When I first came across them I was at the store looking for a new ball to try and felt I was going to get pushed or scammed into a ball that was not of my choice. Thankfully by the end I was trying Dixon Golf Balls and I have come to really love them!
Dixon Golf owners dane platt and william clay owned dissolved Dixon World Charities. Do the research on Dixon Golf and the owners. They are 100% a scam company. The balls are made in China and have nothing about them that are recycled or eco-friendly. Their new business model is to scam and take advantage of kind hearted golfers who support charity golf events. They created a phony tournament " Big Tournament " in 2013. They received thousands of dollars in payment, and never had the tournament with no refunds ! Most unethical company I have ever made the mistake of working with. I know all of this from first hand knowledge. I am currently pursuing a class action lawsuit to have Dixon pay all the charities that they scammed. Hopefully at the very least, this will put them out of business and stop this scam. If you have any complaints about Dixon Golf, please contact me and I will add you to the class actionlawsuit.
