This display case from Andy Rawls is pure class with a glass door enclosure and a perfectly spaced layout for up to 100 golf balls and is available in walnut, cherry, white oak, or Texas pecan wood finishes. This is sure to be a highlight of whatever space it’s in.

Best Case for Moderate Collections

Maxfli 35-ball cabinet

The 35 Ball Cabinet from Maxfli is exactly what you think of when describing a golf ball display case. Made from durable mahogany, this display case looks great in any setting with a classic frame and green felt background. Its dumpled shelves ensure the golf balls stay securely in place. The best part is if your collection eventually exceeds 35 you can easily put another one right next to the first.

Best Hole-In-One Case

If you are lucky enough to have a hole-in-one to your credit you want to display every possible aspect of that experience, in addition to telling the story to everyone who cares to listen. The Ball & Photo/Scorecard Shadow Box from Hole-In-One Trophies not only has a spot for the ball that did it all but also a small plaque with all of the hole information. Fill the placeholder at the top with either a landscape photo of the golf hole or your scorecard.
