So, Who Makes Pinnacle Golf Balls?

So rest assured that when you buy a Pinnacle golf ball you get the same quality control, consistency, and efficiency as the top golf ball but at an affordable price point.

As one of the first manufacturers of 2-piece golf balls, after Top Flite introduced the 2-piece and multi-layer golf balls, Pinnacle understands the requirements for a ball that travels straight and far.

The first iteration of the Pinnacle golf ball had a solid rubber core and durable thermoplastic resin cover that felt like a rock off the clubface. Complaints from clients forced Pinnacle into producing a ball that felt softer off the clubface but retained the length off the tee.

Spalding, including the Top flite brand, introduced a core consisting of a combination of zinc and petroleum polymer polybutadiene created a change in the 2-piece golf ball market which Pinnacle soon adopted into its range.
