Today on the course my friend found an Acushnet Club Special ball #4 in good shape.
Any idea how old it might be?

I remember playing the Club Special back in the early- to mid-70's. Used to cost $.65 when the "real" Titleist cost $1.25!

If I had to guess, I would have to say late 60's to early 70's

Boy that looks awful good for a ball that I'm pretty sure hasn't been around since the 60's MAYBE very early 70's. I (vaguely) remember the from my days as a "yute" when I just was learning the game as and 11 or 12 year old. Maybe the Smithsonian would check it to see if it has "fossil" status.

I remember my father played these. We played every weekend together starting when I was about 6 yrs old, which would be 1971. I recall these at least up through the mid to late 70's.

The last time I saw the Club Special was in the early 80's. The one pictured is in very good shape and must have kept in the box until recently.

I was looking through my golf balls and I found a club special 2. It looks so old I looked it up and found your posting. Mine looks much older than yours. I'm thinking early 60s also. I'll try to attach a picture.

I played them when I was on the high school golf team in 1976,77,78

Nice find. Played them in the 60's and early 70's. It was a great ball. Today's clubs probably couldn't keep it airborne.
