Harvesting Golf Balls

At Golf Ball Monkey LLC, our primary business is the harvesting of golf balls. We pay you to retrieve and extract of golf balls from hard-to-reach areas of the course, reducing build-up and improving the appearance of wooded areas and ponds. We have multiple harvesting techniques and talents that we leverage depending on the course we are working with. We swing for golf balls at Golf Ball Monkey and leave no stone or lily pad unturned.

Our Golf Ball Harvesting Process

STEP 1: Once a golf course has decided to do business with Golf Ball Monkey, we work with them to identify the days of the week and the time of day with the lowest golfer traffic and provide a monthly schedule for harvesting and retrieving.

STEP 2: We focus our harvesting efforts on each courses pond and brush line areas. If you have another spot on your course that has an accumulation of balls, please feel free to inform our team and we will edit your contract to include those areas in our harvesting efforts.

STEP 3: We provide qualified divers to support water hazard golf ball recovery. All of our divers are professionally trained and we try to hire many ex-veterans in this position as possible. Where required, we can roll your water hazards as well.

STEP 4: Upon harvest completion, we will sell any balls back to the course as well as return any range balls that were lost at no additional cost.
