t’s simple: Vice Golf makes premium and awarded golf balls. The balls are as good as anything out there, but a lot less expensive.
You can stop reading now. But if you’re curious—and we hope you are—here’s the background.
Vice Golf was founded in Germany in 2012 by Ingo Duellmann and Rainer Stoeckl. The company started selling the highest-quality golf balls first in Germany, expanded into other parts of Europe, and entered the U.S. market in 2015.
Through increased production and manufacturing efficiency over the last decade, Vice Golf has since June 2020 teamed up with Pro Shops to seamlessly move into the retail space and deliver affordable golf balls to the offline customer. Vice Golf can now offer golf balls in Pro Shops at the same price that customers have come to know and love, again disrupting an industry’s pricing structure to the benefit of both their partners and players.
The prices are cheap, the golf balls aren’t. Vice Golf balls cost less than half as much as of comparable products from other manufacturers of premium balls. In fact, one new, top-quality Vice Golf ball costs about the same as a used ball purchased through normal channels in America.
We produce five different golf balls (designed and engineered in Germany), all of the highest quality, including good enough for Tour players. All types of balls were tested by independent, international testing institutes. The results were conclusive: Vice Golf balls are as good as any comparable ball available.
Besides making great products, Vice Golf wants to change the golf-ball market by combining selling its products in a new way and with a smart and sassy attitude: cool designs and a totally new concept for marketing.
And Vice Golf offers personalization options few other companies do, especially at such low prices.
Golf balls are Vice Golf’s main business, and we are very serious about them. So much so that Vice Golf is the official ball of the German Golf Association (DGL) and has begun growing a player portfolio that includes up-and-coming pros as well as top American and European amateurs.
