Introducing the MERIT M1 - Designed for empowered junior golfers who are working as hard as they can to advance in the game and are looking for an equipment edge.

Conforms to USGA standards for competitive play.

Better Golf Balls for Better Junior Players

Longer Off the Tee

Gain 4-5 yards off with junior driver swing speeds and launch conditions vs. “Pro” balls designed for elite adults with faster swings.

Soft Around the Greens

With Urethane covers and multi-piece construction, our balls spin like “Pro” balls around the green and feel great off the club.

More Control

Softer compression means the ball stays on the clubface longer, increasing the ability to influence the flight of the ball.

What Drives Us

We started MERIT Golf as a son-father team with a goal to create a ball for competitive young players with a passion to work hard and get better.

I like the M1S. It's a little softer than the M1. I hit it 12 yards farther than the USKids ball.

Hudson Taylor, 9 Years Old

I tested the M1S golf ball designed for younger players and shot 29 for nine holes - one shot off the course record.


7 Year Old Youth Player

I've had the privilege of testing out these new balls designed for youth golfers of various swing speeds and the results are great! I'd say they're doing their job.


Older junior golfer

I love these balls. They're exactly what we were hoping for when we started the project. You're going to want to be one of the first to play them in a tournament.
