I recently put the Srixon Soft Feel golf balls to the test – they are high quality for the price! They are good for distance and feel great. Short game spin is lacking a bit though.
I’ve hit thousands of golf balls in the simulator, and I recently compared the Srixon Soft Feel to the Bridgestone e6 and Noodle. After getting data from the GC3 and playing a round on the course, here is a summary of what I found with the Srixon Soft feel golf balls
Low spin off the tee, contributing to good overall distance
Comparable distance with Mid-Irons to its competitors
A bit lower greenside spin than its competitors
Very nice soft feel
Overall, compared to other 2-piece golf balls in its price range, the Soft Feel is one of the best golf balls for beginners, mid to high handicappers, or anyone looking for an inexpensive option for a quality golf ball.
Srixon Soft Feel Golf Balls Review
⛳️ Our experts spend hours gathering data, testing, and comparing products to deliver comprehensive recommendations to help you choose. Find out more about how we test products.
Based on the numbers, any golfer looking for a quality golf ball at a reasonable price will like this ball. The overall feel was great, it was very soft on the wedges and putter. It traveled as far as I would expect off the tee as well.
Although I’ve been playing golf for 30 years, I wanted to get another opinion, so I had one of my friends from the club test them out as well. Fitz is 75 years old, has been golfing for well over 50 years, and has been the club champion 5 times.
Fitz immediately said, “wow, these feel really good”. He also commented that he really liked how they felt off his putter.
The Srixon Soft Feel golf ball is made with 2 piece construction and a single cover design. They are rated by the USGA as low spin with a driver and low spin with short irons. They have a 338 dimple design and a soft feel.
You can get the Soft Feel golf ball in white, orange, red, or green.
They are currently rated 4.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon from about 2,300 reviews. Here’s what customers have to say about them.
“Great value for the money”
“This ball is soft and long…fantastic for the price”
- High quality for the price, great for budget-conscious golfers
- Low spin off the tee leading to better overall distance
- Suitable for a wide range of golfers
- While it performs well, it will not match the short game spin performance of a 3-piece ball or its competitors
- May not be the best choice for golfers who prefer a firmer ball
Performance – Srixon Soft Feel vs. Bridgestone e6 & Noodle
When I put the Srixon Soft Feel up against the Bridgestone e6 and Noodle, I noticed some clear differences. Here is a chart with the raw data from all 3 golf balls from my testing in the simulator.

Performance Off the Tee
The numbers looked good in the simulator, but would that performance translate on the golf course?
I was getting pretty similar distance with all 3, but overall the Soft Feel seemed to get slightly more spin off the tee and just a yard or two less distance than the others. Still low spin, which also helped keep side-spin down, minimizing my hook. Don’t get me wrong, you can still hook/slice with the Soft Feel, but as with most 2-piece low-spin balls, they don’t get quite as wild as say a ProV1 might.
If you are a higher swing speed golfer, you may want to consider other options, however. Due to its softness, it was more difficult to get the Soft Feel golf ball to travel as far as the others.
Fitz, a lower swing-speed player, didn’t have that issue. The Soft Feel golf ball was traveling just as far for him on his drives.
Performance Around the Green
Where the Srixon Soft Feel really set itself apart was in its overall soft feel. It felt very nice on the wedges and putter. If you like a softer ball, this is a great option.
It did not get as much spin around the greens as I’m accustomed to, and they were definitely rolling out a bit more. So if you are used to a ball checking quickly and coming to a stop, this ball will not perform for you. Most 2-piece balls won’t, and the Srixon Soft Feel is no exception.
Who Should Use the Srixon Soft Feel Golf Balls
I would recommend the Srixon Soft Feel to beginners, mid to high handicappers, and anyone looking for a cheap option for a quality golf ball.
I would NOT recommend the Srixon Soft Feel for low and mid-handicap golfers who are looking for maximum greenside performance and who are willing to pay a bit more for a 3-piece ball. Golfers in this category may consider the Vice Pro or the Titleist Tour Speed instead. At this price point, however, the Soft Feel is one of the best-feeling golf balls I’ve tested in its class!
The Srixon Soft Feel is a very high-quality ball for the price! You’ll get good distance, and a great feeling golf ball.
The biggest downside to the Soft Feel golf ball is that it is not quite in that “premium ball” category, and you will lose some spin and shot-shaping capability if you are a player who cares about those things.
I think the Srixon Soft Feel is a great ball for anyone looking for an inexpensive golf ball at a great price. New golfers, mid to high handicapper, even low handicappers looking for a great ball at a great price.
