    Probably a Callaway. The dimple pattern looks like a hexagon, and they've sold Callaways for years now.

    The person who gave it to me today at Kanata lakes was a buyer for Costco. He said they were handing them out at Greyhawk to at the Costco company tournament this week. He stated that it was manufactured by Titleist.

    Interesting. At that price I would definitely give them a try.

    At that price, perhaps more like NXT or Velocity than ProV1.

    Found one today while playing the Marshes..Very nice ball..feels more like a Titleist NXT S. not as soft as a Pro V... Great ball..can't wait to see them at the local Costco, especially at that price.

    Here is a different view on the source of the new ball

    http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/topic/...co-golf-balls/

    I have the NXT ball and the pro v in my bag and the dimples on the Kirkland ball match the pro v1x pattern more then the NXT

    It's in the Sept 2016 Conforming balls list:

    Kirkland Signature with Signature in red
    Tour Performance
    colour: white
    construction: 4P-SC-3c
    spin rating: M-H
    dimples: 360
    country: KOR
    manufacturer: Nassau Golf Co., Ltd.

    didn't see Nassau as a manufacturer of any other known brand ball (titleist: acushnet, callaway: callaway, etc)

    Available now on Costco's US site, with free shipping in the US up to October 24th (Monday):

    http://www.costco.com/Kirkland-Signa...100310467.html

    Not available in Canada yet, but if anyone is set up for an "Ogdensburg" order then I would like to add a couple of boxes to the order.

    The golf balls, which do appear on the USGA conforming golf ball list, are made by Nassau Golf Co. Ltd. of South Korea. The four-piece ball is intended, we think, to compare with Titleist Pro V1s. It has 360 dimples and is a medium-to-high spin ball around the greens, according to the USGA's conforming ball list.

    Now we just have to figure out who Nassau is??

    there is a whole thread here

    as well as on golfwrx

    http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/topic/...co-golf-balls/

    specs are listed in the thread above from testing and it has similar characteristics to a ProV1 - how that translates to the course I am not sure. Happy reading!
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    If the ProV1 price is not duplicated then I'm OK with that.

    For most the prov1 is overkill. At 15-20$ a dozen, I'll take these any day over $50 a dozen.

    Costco had their yearly tournament in Sept at Emerald Links. Next day my buddy and I found about 10 of them on the course. We did not know what they were. I played one on the back nine just to see how they were. Well i was realy surprised. The ball was at least 15 yards longer of fairway woods and driver with nice feel. About the same length of irons. I usualy play Pro V1. Definately buy some at Cosco in US when i go down this winter to Florida. Very good ball.
    Golfing only thing on my mind.......

    I have been reading all about this new ball on golfwrx.com. I even called a Costco in Bellingham, Washington about them and they did not have them. Not all Costco's in the US have them. I hope they do come to Costco in Canada.
    I would have to order online from Costco.com or drive to a Costco that is South East of Seattle, Washington.
    Obviously you're not a golfer.

    I would love to pick up an extra 15 yards. But did they spin enough to offer the stopping power that the ProV's provide around the green?

    Interesting. Thanks for posting the chart. Performance overall is very competitive with the others.

    It appears to me the ball rolls out a little more than the others on average (2 yards difference between total carry and distance)...

    They definitely look to be worth a try when they become available.

    Jeff, those numbers from MyGolfSpy are amazing, I am going to order some as soon as they are back in stock.
