    Hello, we are a Las Vegas used golf ball company in need of part time or full time divers to make a great income. We will pay you 8 to 10 cents per ball and we have divers that can pull over 3,000 per day so that would pay over $100,000 per year.

    You can do this in any city that has golf courses.

    For more information, call Steve at 702-510-3799

    Thanks

    The topic is way tabloid... You should change it to "Divers wanted to find golf balls at $0,08 per ball"...

    Lets see..... 3000 x $.09 x 5 days per week x 50 weeks per year = $67,500

    A far cry from $100,000 and of course not likely to happen at all.

    Ha ha, show me one golf course on this planet where 3,000 golf balls per day are lost in ponds.

    What's a more realistic number, 20-50?:eyebrow:

    Not very smart either. They make machines that can clean the bottom of any water hazard a lot quicker than any diver and for a lot less. You decide.

    To make 100,000 a year for a 2000 hour year (40/h week x 50 weeks), assuming you are diving 8 hours a day, 5 days a week with only two weeks off and not allowing any time for suiting up, etc, that's 50 an hour, or 500 balls an hour. Or one every seven seconds or so, every minute of every hour of every day...

    Except for number 17 on TPC sawgrass, I doubt that most water hazards have the volume of balls to approach anything like these numbers.

    I know you can make money doing this, but what is the going rate for range balls? It has to be more than a dime. Why can't some industrious diver bypass the middleman, dive for balls and sell them directly to ranges? You just need to sort them, paint some rnage mark on them and sell them, right? Couldn't you just make a deal to sell them to the course you get them from?
