Coloured Golf Balls and Pro V selling well.

August 24, 2013

No let up in the search for golf balls, really doesn’t matter if it pours with rain or we have an avalanche of snow, were out there in all weathers.

The last few days have been interesting as we walk round and today of all days would have been the best ever for getting pictures of the deer, but as my camera was on low charge i decided to leave it at home and give it a good charge as it was pouring down and i was thinking the deer will not be running round, but how wrong can i be as i walked through the copse the two young bolted out and headed across the field, i then took off the back way and waited and waited in the rain and guess what they appeared and after a long nervous wait by the young ones they started walking the fence line very carefully eating and nibbling what they could totally unaware that i was there stood under the tree, it was magical the two were almost side by side to me and i was just so pleased to stand there looking them both over they both looked like bambi from the film, gorgeous features with the cutest faces and the eyes said it all, i was so happy and yet so sad that my camera was not handy, but i will be back there again later.

Our colours are selling well and we have been adding to the collection after we found these in the ferns


We have also been collecting good white balls that just keep dropping 20130823_202015

The above balls were collected in the woods within 30 minutes bringing our total to roughly around 200+ for a couple of days, not bad considering it is holiday time and lots of people are away.




Found this ball that arrived all the way from the Gulf and has a rather nice picture of a camel.

Now we head to our big field again to clear this, hopefully the rain has stopped and we can clear quite a few more.

Anyone wishing to purchase any amount of quality golf balls are welcome to contact me


Some interesting logo golf balls today.

May 5, 2013

On our travels we had another good afternoon with a return of 43 balls, not all were good enough to keep and have been discarded to the rubbish bin but with a few nice Pro V Balls it was a good walk.


And as you can see just some of our logo findings


From the estate of the famous spender Lord Brocket the man with no lining in his pockets an endless  amount of wealth.

And this from the lovely Stoke Park Hotel which was the setting for quite a few film locations, if you ever have the chance to visit grab the opportunity and enjoy the grounds and its marvellous settings.



And this from another very good  hotel where money pours like water

Clearing the field in this heat.

May 1, 2013

Such a beautiful day and have we been busy, we headed to the woodland this morning and had a haul of 27 Titleist Pro V Balls just as a starter, then back to the field and retrieved 100 brand name balls and as you can probably guess another 10 Pro V amongst them.

I took our ball retriever with me as this makes very light work of picking up a ball without the strain of having to keep bending or having to keep telling tilly to drop, very surprised to find it actually holds 100 golf balls and bearing in mind we done three trips, so a very good day so far as we have only walked one half of the course so far.

The weather has been a little to hot for Tilly bless her, yesterday was her annual trip to the vet for her booster and Stronghold Flea Treatment at a cost of £93 :36 (at least Dick Turpin wore a mask) it is no wonder animals are being neglected and badly treated when you see the charges these vets think they are entitled to, remember a lot of the big companies in animal health are only to happy to give there products free of charge to vet’s surgeries as a sort of enticement for future sales. My friend took his dog for a small scale on his leg, vet shaved it and applied a tiny bit of cream, thank you £55 and yesterday my son had to have his Staff put down at 8 years of age due to some awful womb infection they had been treating?…cost £500 how can this be justified in these days of austerity, the mind boggles with sadness,how do these vet’s sleep at night when they tell you how they care so much? high time they were reported to the local Ombudsman and that is exactly what i intend doing.




Above our first haul of Pro V Balls this morning.


Anyone out there know Elaine? “Put me down i belong to Elaine” written on this ball, come on Elaine come and get your precious ball back, promise to wash and clean it for you !

Young Deer back in the field / Red Kite Feast !

March 30, 2013

What a total surprise to see 3 young deer in the field this morning, have not seen these young beauties before and guess they have left the herd that are quite happy in the woodland about 1 mile from here, i just hope that they will stay around for the summer.

There is a young male amongst them who is just growing antlers and looks very much like Thomas from last year, but i am pleased to say Thomas is doing very well roaming the fields of the national trust very close to me, hopefully if they stay then i will get closer to them and give them all name’s so let us see what happens, i am just delighted that we have them here where they are safe.

Tilly was up to her tricks of catching bugs bunny the last couple of days, not 1 but 2 were laid to rest due to them both having the dreadful mixi disease which leaves them hopelessly blind and not capable of doing anything other than suffer.20130328_102903-120130328_102849-120130329_10501920130329_105616-1

After leaving the bunnies to rest in the field i was amazed to look in the sky and to see us surrounded by red kite’s hovering above, in total 7 of these lovely birds were ready to feast on our furry friend.

20130329_171441 (2)20130329_171432

And what a meal they had, they were like scavengers at a feeding frenzy diving down at speed and pecking what they could get, not a lot was left they had skinned poor bunny down to the bones more or less

Tilly has been in good form and despite everything that has been a distraction she is still pulling golf balls from the thorn bushes and our collection is underway again after clearing 2200 balls to an online golfing shop.

Going back to the woods now….

Golf Balls Galore.

March 17, 2013

My apologies for no recent posts of late as i had to spend time in Germany which also involved a trip to France, but back home now and back to the woodlands for peace of mind and the freedom myself and Tilly yearn for.


We are out on a mission as soon as i am home, tilly very excited to be going back in search of fun and myself being happy to collect every golf ball there is and believe me we have had a huge coup in the last few days, just in 20 minutes of walking this morning we had this little lot

20130317_14235320130317_14340620130317_142404 (2)

with some nice logo balls from various companies and courses including this nice ball from The Berkshire club.

We find them in filthy condition and as you see there is even growth on this ball which is better than some we collect, some have horse muck and cow dung but a ball is a ball and if we see it we will have it.

Things are changing in the woodland with new trees and chutes growing the arrival of more deer, we now have 9 in the wood along with recent arrival of pheasant and partridge that have not been there for years, so hopefully things look good on the wildlife side.20130219_15501820130219_15553420130219_15510520130215_140106

Today we had 2 bags which i am struggling to get in the nets as they are now full and have been sold to a golf outlet, but i have to organise some heavy duty boxes or crates so the courier man can collect them.

With a little help.

The golf balls come out of them hedges faster than tilly could get in there, we had quite a few colour and white’s along with some very nice logo’s that found there way in those hedges, here is the item that has made life easy for me and gives tilly more time to concentrate on  bugs bunny.


After carrying this harpoon across the field my arms were aching as this is a heavy old lump that should be used for pole-vaulting the bloody fences straight to the golf course, but here are some of the golf balls fresh from the field which do contain a bit of horse…past


These certainly need something to make them shine


And we certainly have the magic ingredient  for when it is needed

Finding golf balls in tree

They land in some funny places,anywhere bar the right place


In the tree and thorn bushes we still manage to hunt them out


Tilly just loves the woods and has fun bringing me a ball

Dirty Golf Balls Need Washing

October 11, 2012

This morning we found these quite life-less looking golf balls,so i thought let me give them a spruce up and see what we can do……here is the result of a few minutes cleaning

And this all the way from St Andrews bringing the filth with it it

Now have a look at them all gleaming and looking like a complete new ball

Here is our tally so far in the last few days : 622 in total from just 2 golf courses

My mate Daz is calling tomorrow to pick these up, a great selection of numerous brands.

What have we seen and found in the woods & golf course this week.

October 10, 2012

Apart from bucket loads of rain earlier this week things have been fantastic with a huge return of golf balls especially from the leaves close to the hedgerows, you cannot imagine what is laying underground, but we took the opportunity to have a good look on a short stretch and used a rake to move the leaf-mold away from the fence areas and hey bingo,we hit the jackpot i was most surprised at the condition of the golf balls which had probably been there for months,there was no damage and they looked in perfect condition considering the elements they have endured.
Over the course of the last 7 days we have retrieved from hedgerows and our fields in excess of
600 golf balls, sheer hardwork with an eye for detail and long walking sessions have brought such good returns for our efforts, and i am sure my mate Daz will be planning another trip south when he reads this.
Anyway lets get to some pictures for you people to enjoy, here are some of my friendly deer

Here is mother keeping a close eye on Tilly

And one happy family

We found this club

Sadly snapped in half

And golfers caught in a rainstorm

Having just found me another ball
