Over the last month when it hasn’t been raining I’ve had the delight of thoroughly testing out the Swish Portable Golf Ball Cleaner. Full transparency, the team at Swish Golf sent me this to test, but I have no allegiances, and as you may know from previous reviews, just because something is gifted it doesn’t automatically give it a good review!

The first thing to note is the packaging. Swish have done a great job making the packaging practical in terms of it keeping the product damage free, but also making it attractive! The vivid green box really pops which straight away means it could be a fantastic gift. It certainly looks like a premium product.

As an avid winter golfer, I was keen to test this product in the middle of winter to see if it stands up to my local weather conditions. If you’ve ever been to Manchester then you’ll know it is synonymous with RAIN so there is no better place in the world to test Swish! ☔️

Excited to see how it would impact my performance, I took the cleaner out on the course for a thorough test, and the results were nothing short of impressive.

Ironically in hindsight, maybe spring/summer is a better time to test this. The golf courses in England are that wet in the middle of winter that a towel will often be enough. That said, the silicon pads within this product are so much more efficient than using a towel. Towels don’t tend to get stubborn dirt and grime off easily whereas Swish really did!

How to use the Swish Golf Ball Washer

Before using this product a golfer should wet the sponge inserts. I’ve found it’s best to pull the unit apart, remove the inserts and give them a quick soak in the sink but you could just pour a little bit of water on them. That’s it! Now simply connect to the golf bag and Swish is ready to use. To use it follow these steps:

  • Open swish unit by pulling it apart
  • Insert dirty golf ball
  • Close the Swish unit and clean the ball by rotating your hands in opposite directions back and forth.
  • Open the Swish unit, remove the clean golf ball and rub dry with the Swish towel.

Done … you should now have a clean golf ball! 🧼⛳️😀

Everything has something wrong, right?

As you will know from reading our reviews before, it’s not all about the good stuff! Here’s the downsides to the Swish Ball Cleaner:

  • Wear & Tear: It certainly hasn’t happened for me as yet but I imagine in time the pads will wear out and need replacing. I suspect though that these pads are hard wearing … I’ll let you know once it’s been used a little more! Currently Swish don’t offer a “replacement pad” pack on their website but I’m reliably informed they’ll be coming soon!
  • Cost: This is NOT expensive for what is in the box … it is however expensive compared to the cost of a towel or using the free ball washers found on most courses.
  • Shipping: Currently Swish only seem to offer UK & Europe shipping, hopefully USA 🇺🇸 and the rest of the globe 🌍 will be available soon.
  • More in/on the bag: Don’t get me wrong, the Swish cleaner isn’t big and it only weighs 160g, but since the towel is still needed to clean your golf clubs then the Swish becomes an additional item to carry. If a golfer is using a trolley or buggy/cart then this will not be an issue. The issue may come if a golfer is carrying clubs and don’t want this dangling from the bag. Personally, for me the pro’s outweigh the cons of not having it on the bag.
