The next time you're playing 18 holes, make sure your golf ball is up to par. Traditional golf balls can take hundreds of years to decompose, but SmartPlanet's Sumi Das has found an eco-friendly alternative.

Went to PGA tour super store to purchase Golf Balls the other day to purchase Dixon Golf Balls and felt I was getting scammed into buying another brand. Thankfully I walked out with Dixon Golf Balls. I purchased the earth and am really loving them!
I have played the "Earth" ball and the "Fire" ball and must say that I have a new favorite brand. I am a 15 handicapper and have found the Fire ball to be my favorite. I can stick greens and get better distance on my drives. Kudos to Dixon.
Dear Reader, It has come to our attention that a few of you may have concerns regarding a promotional booklet created by Eyconic Marketing (aka Dixon World Charities). While Eyconic Marketing used high-performance, eco-friendly Dixon Golf products in its promotional booklet, it is not owned by or affiliated with Dixon Golf. Dixon Golf continues to offer the world's first high-performance, eco-friendly products through national retailers and online at dixongolf dot com. If you have any questions, please contact me.

I was so happy to come across this feature by Sumi Das. I have had a chance to play the Dixon Golf balls (Earth & Fire) and I can tell you they play as well or better then any ball I have ever played. I am a single digit handicap golfer, and I will only play the Dixon Golf products from now on. My Kids got them for me for my Birthday, so you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was to find out these were high performace golf balls, that are better for the environment in the event they end up in a lake, the woods, or someones back yard. These golf balls get 2 thumbs up........
Great pick Sumi! So glad they made it to your show. Dixon is leading the industry not only in contributions for our game, but to our environment as well Dixon Golf balls play just as well if not better then any other competitors balls. I bought a dozen "Earth" for my husband- he loved them so much he won't play anything else. Check them out for yourself at www.dixongolf.com
I am a big fan of Dixon Golf balls. I have played them religiously for over a year. I consistently get an extra 10 yards on my drives. This was a great pick!
I was offered a deal to get environmentally safe golf balls from Dixon and they are renigging. Just got a full page "Notice of Changes to Program" that adds about a hundred dollars in charges to a "gift" I received. Seems if they can dishonor their sales offer so easily, who knows what's in those golf balls?
"Sumi's Smart Picks: Dixon Golf Balls" Dixon golf balls is a ripoff! Dixon made me an offer a couple of months ago. Send us $30 plus shipping and handling and we will send you certificates for 90 golf balls. Fine! I sent the money and Dixon sent me a book of certificates. Not a bad price for 30 golf balls, right? Wrong! I started sending in the certificates for 3 golf balls at a time as per Dixon instructions. Each time I received a sleeve of three balls, postage paid. I would send the next certificate and enclose the cardboard sleeve from the previous one to be returned to the company for recycling. This went on for five certificates that I used to far. So, yesterday I get a notice from Dixon that it could no longer afford to send the 3-ball sleeve postage-free. Now I have to send them $2.22 with each certificate. Now the balls cost me more than a dollar each. I think it was a gimmick to get me sucked in. Dixon made a contract with me which I, and they, agreed to. They need to honor this contract. Now I either pay the $2.22 for shipping and handling or I am stuck with 15 balls that I paid $2.47 each. I can buy ProV1s for that price. Jon
