Hello all! I have just recently found out about golf ball diving. My friend is a commercial diver and is interested in this specialty, but I have been searching online and haven't really found any big companies offering positions to divers. Has anyone done this? Do you just call the golf courses and develop a contract on your own or do you work under a company? I am well aware of what the job entails and am not worried about the labor or conditions. Thanks!!
I’m a golfer. Another thing to consider is that a LOT of balls...particularly those that end up in water hazards...are going to be budget and junk/XX-out (factory reject) balls. I would be surprised if more than one in ten recovered balls are worth much, from a resale value standpoint.
I’m not trying to discourage you. Just saying that I would not want that to be my only source of income.
Interesting read. Public waters are another option (west coast).
