Golf Ball Retrievers of 2023

The golf ball retrievers we are highlighting in this article

A golf ball retriever is a convenience that many golfers don’t think about, and so they don’t realize how useful they truly are. Everybody jokes about losing balls on the course, but the reality is, it can be a significant and frustrating cost of golfing when you’re new, or playing courses you’re not familiar with.

There are many situations where the ball is visible, but it’s in the water or a bush, and impossible to get to without getting wet, dirty, or scratched by thorns. Golf ball retrievers are made to help retrieve these balls, and any other balls that other ill-equipped golfers may have left.

They come in a few different varieties, so we are going to highlight the three sold on our website so that buyers can find the most convenient option for them.

Best Hideaway Golf Ball Retriever: Search ‘N Rescue Mini Hideaway Retriever

The Search ‘N Rescue Mini Hideaway ball retriever

Hideaway golf ball retrievers are meant to collapse to the smallest size possible to make it easier to carry them even if you’re not using a full-size golf bag. These collapse down to around ten inches, and they can be carried in a sunday bag, a purse, or even just a regular golf cart tray.

The Search ‘N Rescue offers an upgraded retriever head that makes it even easier to grip balls, and is made of steel to increase durability. This makes it slightly heavier, but it will likely last longer, since using a stronger metal on the hollow, collapsible shafts decreases the risk of denting, bending, or snapping. This results in a slightly higher price tag (MSRP $39.99), but it is a smart purchase for someone looking to ensure they only ever need one.

Best Club Attachment Retriever: Proactive Sports EZ Lift

The ProActive Sports EZ Lift ball pick-up attachment

The EZ Lift is a unique ball retriever that simply attaches to your golf clubs. It is sold as a standalone retriever head that you can screw into the end of your golf grip. This is more of a “dry retriever,” as it isn’t a high-visibility color and you likely won’t be looking to dunk your golf club grips into the water. Nevertheless, it is a cheap (MSRP $7.99) and simple option for those looking to fish balls out of the bushes or deep rough easily.

Trevor Cigich | Director of Retail Marketing |  Worldwide Golf Shops

I’ve been at Worldwide Golf Shops for 6 years, and I’ve been playing golf for 23 years. I have played a few mini tour events but now compete occasionally at the amateur level– currently a +2.1 handicap. I am a bit of a tinkerer when it comes to golf and golf clubs. I enjoy testing all aspects of different products, utilizing various fitting systems and learning about all the different club shafts, club lengths, golf balls, and putter styles. Not just for my game, but to help customers of all calibers.
