I’ll be honest. This isn’t the most exciting post I’ve ever put together.
But as I’ve learned in life, sometimes “ya gotta do what ya gotta do.”
There are tons of queries out there for who makes [insert brand name] golf balls? The goal of this post is to answer every question that I’ve come across during my decade of work in the golf industry.
This is essentially your quick reference guide to each golf ball manufacturer.
So here we go…(listed alphabetically so I can’t be accused of playing favorites).

Sam Uisprapassorn is the founder of Cut Golf Co, a company seeks to offer “The Best Damn Golf Balls Under $20.”

2023 Update: More recent versions of the golf balls appear to be made in Vietnam.
Earlier versions of the Costco golf balls were manufactured by Nassau Golf out of South Korea.

Who Makes Maxfli Golf Balls?
Maxfli golf balls are made by Foremost in Taiwan. This production facility is considered to be one of the best Asian golf ball factories and several other brands partner with Foremost for their golf balls (namely: OnCore, Vice and Wilson).
Maxfli has a long history in the golf industry, as it was previous owned by the Dunlop Slazenger Group LTD before being acquired by TaylorMade Golf. Dick’s Sporting Goods is the current owner of Maxfli (as of 2008).
Who Makes MG Golf Balls?
I did some real journalistic work to try and determine where MG golf balls are made. Unfortunately, I’m not a real journalist, so I eventually hit a dead end. The only response that the company would offer is the MG golf balls’ manufacturing location is “proprietary information that will not be released.”
A safe guess would be that MG Golf Balls are made somewhere in Asia.
Who Makes Nike Mojo Golf Balls?
Unfortunately, nobody makes Nike Mojo golf balls anymore, as Nike closed down the hard-goods portion of its golf business back in 2016.
However, I still have a handful of Nike golf balls. I’m selling them for $100/piece, so feel free to reach out if you’re interested 😉
Does Nike still make golf balls?
Unfortunately, Nike no longer makes golf balls. Golfers found out that Bridgestone played a large part in Nike’s golf ball manufacturing, so if you’re looking for an alternative, you may want to look into a Bridgestone golf ball.
Who Makes Nitro Golf Balls?
Nitro golf balls are made in a Chinese production facility, though the company itself (Nitro Golf LLC) is based in Stuart, Florida.
Chinese-based manufacturing helps Nitro to offer high performing golf equipment at a super-competitive price.
If you’re considering a budget-friendly offering from Nitro, be sure to check out our post: Are Nitro Balls Any Good?
Who Makes Noodle Golf Balls?
Noodle golf balls are made in South Korea at the TaylorMade adidas Golf facility. These distance-friendly golf balls are popular for their added yards and their reasonable price. Having TaylorMade as the parent company ensures a certain level of quality for each Noodle ball.
MyGolfSpy has a good write-up with testing specs for these balls.
Who owns Noodle golf balls?
The Noodle brand was once part of Maxfli, but when Maxfli was sold to Dick’s Sporting Goods, TaylorMade retained control of the Noodle brand. All that to say, TaylorMade owns Noodle golf balls.
Who Makes Pinnacle Golf Balls?
Pinnacle golf balls are made by Acushnet Company, the same company that owns Titleist, Footjoy, Scotty Cameron and Vokey.
Since the 1970s, Pinnacle has maintained a reputation for affordable distance golf balls. Pinnacle’s current lineup includes the Rush ball (focused on distance) and the Soft ball (focused on feel).
Who Makes Precept Golf Balls?
Precept golf balls are made by Bridgestone. Bridgestone’s golf balls are produced at the company’s Covington, Georgia manufacturing facility.
Where are PXG Golf Balls Made?
PXG golf balls are made in Vietnam. These golf balls are relatively new to the market, so no specific information about who manaufactures PXG golf balls in available. However, it’s worth noting that their 338 dimple pattern is the same as the Kirkland Signature Performance+, which is also produced in Vietnam.
This doesn’t mean that PXG’s technology is the same. This ball clearly has its under proprietary technology under the cover, but its more than likely produced in the same manufacturing facility as the Kirkland ball.
RAM Golf is based in Henderson, NV, but their golf balls appear to be made by Nassau Golf Co. Ltd. out of South Korea. TaylorMade acquired Nassau sometime in late 2021, but it is unclear if these golf balls are still made at that facility. [Thanks to Jake from New Hampshire for the info!]
As of 2023, RAM has a unique direct-to-consumer approach. They sell their golf balls in bags (instead of boxes) and in larger quantities (3 dozen at a time) to keep costs down.
Who Makes Slazenger Golf Balls?
Slazenger golf balls are made by Frasers Group plc, a British retail company.
This is a brand with a long and storied history. Slazenger was first established as a sporting goods shop in 1881 by Ralph and Albert Slazenger in London.
Today the company offers the V100 and V300 golf balls, along with several practice options.
What animal is on the Slazenger logo?
A black panther is the animal on the Slazenger logo.
Where are Snell Golf Balls Made?
Snell Golf Balls are made at three different factories depending on the golf ball. As of October 2023, here are the locations:
- MTB Prime: China
- MTB Prime X: Taiwan
- Other Snell Balls: South Korea
In the past, Snell Golf Balls were manufactured in the Nassau factory that TaylorMade acquired. During the COVID pandemic, Snell had a difficult time meeting consumer demand, so that forced them to make a shift in where and how their golf balls were produced.
MyGolfSpy has a good write-up about Snell Golf that’s worth a read.
Who Makes Spalding Golf Balls?
Spalding golf balls are currently made in Vietnam. It appears that Nitro Golf LLC is responsible for production and distribution, but if you know otherwise, feel free to post in the comments below.
It’s hard to believe, but at one point Spalding golf balls went head-to-head with Titleist for market domination.
Who Makes Srixon Golf Balls?
Srixon golf balls are made by Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. Most Srixon golf balls are manufactured in Japan, but certain lines are produced in Indonesia.
Who Makes Strata Golf Balls?
Strata golf balls are made by their parent company, Callaway Golf.
Who Makes TaylorMade Golf Balls?
TaylorMade golf ball cores are made in various parts of Asia (typically South Korea) and their covers are applied at TaylorMade’s golf ball plant in Liberty, S.C.
Back in 2021, TaylorMade acquired Nassau Golf Co. Ltd. This move gave them more control over the golf ball manufacturing process.
Who Makes Titleist Golf Balls?
Titleist golf balls are made by the Acushnet Company at their three Massachusetts plants or at their golf ball plant in Thailand.

Who Makes Top Flite Golf Balls?
Top Flite golf balls are made by Dick’s Sporting Goods, who acquired the brand from Callaway back in 2012.
Most Top Flite boxes have a “made in Taiwan” label, which leads me to believe that Top-Flite balls are produced by Foremost in Taiwan. Foremost produces the Maxfli line (also owned by Dick’s Sporting Goods), so it would make sense that they are the partner for Top-Flite as well.
Who Makes Uther Golf Balls?
Uther golf balls are made by Uther Supply. These golf balls are imported.
This company is best known for its custom towels and gloves, but Uther’s golf balls stand out for their unique personality.
Who Makes Vice Golf Balls?
Vice Golf balls are made by Foremost in Taiwan. This production facility is considered to be one of the best Asian golf ball factories.
Vice is one of the best examples of the DTC (direct to consumer) golf ball market. These balls are designed and engineered in Germany, but production in Asia helps keep the cost low while still producing a great golf ball.
Who Makes Volvik Golf Balls?
Volvik golf balls are made in South Korea, where the company was founded in 1980.
Volvik’s claim-to-fame is the popularization of premium colored golf balls.
Who Makes Wilson Golf Balls?
Wilson golf balls are made by Foremost in Taiwan. This Asian golf ball company produces balls for other well-known brands including Maxfli, Oncore, Top-Flite and Vice. All that to say, they know what they’re doing.
Did I miss anyone?
Let me know if there’s a golf ball brand that I missed and I’ll get them added to the list.
[Bonus points if you tell me who makes them and where they’re made.]
