        Golf balls are abundant.  At shows, they give away 3-pack brand named golf balls.  Used golf balls are very inexpensive either.  You could buy them bulk or by the dozens on auction sites.   Golf enthusiasts buy novelties and memorabilia that has to do with golf.  What could we do with the golf balls that are catching dust in our home?
