Costco is returning a much-coveted own-brand golf ball, the Costco Kirland Signature Performance One, to the shelves following approval by the U.S. Golf Association as of March 1, according to a report published by MyGolfSpy. The new ball replaces a previous Kirkland Performance ball that absolutely shook up the golf  ball industry, Forbes reported Friday. Not only did those balls retail for just $15 per dozen, the balls performed well on the course, too. And when word got out to golf enthusiasts, Costco allegedly sold out. "With the excitement that this ball generated in its previous incarnation, it's almost a given that the demand will be similar when it does return," Forbes suggested. (Forbes)
