First Impressions

The Srixon Soft Feel Lady hasn’t altered very much looks-wise over the years. The bold bright pink packaging screams female golfer from a mile away.

Inside, the ball supports the same look as the standard Srixon Soft Feel. The only visual difference is the colour change from green to pink in the wording. Srixon offers this ball in a standard white as well as a bright pink option.

NCG Review

Starting with the driver, I really enjoyed how spongey this ball felt off the face of the club. The ball speed was up a little on average from the Srixon Soft Feel that I also tested. I also got one shot over 140mph which is something that doesn’t often happen. The spin was also very good for a driver with this ball and it produced a very nice sound and flight.

I was happy with the carry distance, gaining on average 4 yards further than the standard Soft Feel. The Lady’s ball actually has a slightly lower compression at 56 as opposed to Soft Feel at 60.

Moving onto my 7 iron, looking at the numbers the spin seemed to be quite inconsistent considering that most other things were fairly consistent. The launch, however was very consistent, as was the ball speed and carry which is very important on those approach shots into greens.

Pitching wise, the condition for testing wasn’t great with the ground being very soft and wet. There was certainly a lot more spin created over 50 yards with the Soft Feel Lady than the standard soft feel.

Although my launch angle isn’t perfect, that and the ball speed was very consistent. The spin rates however did vary quite a bit, but again the conditions weren’t great which may have been a slight contributing factor.

In terms of around the green, the Soft Feel Lady was very spongey off of the face and landed very soft. Out of a bunker filled with wet sand, there was plenty of spin generated which was nice. When it came to putting I found it hard to get to the ball to the hole.

Overall, this is a great golf ball and is pitched at a great price and would be ideal for any mid-high handicapper women or men who are looking for a little extra ball speed.

How do we test golf balls?

At National Club Golfer, we are passionate about producing accurate and thorough reviews and make sure our testing process is rigorous so we get a good understanding of how each club performs.

We headed to Woodhall Spa Golf Club to allow us to collect launch monitor data with our in-house TrackMan and Flightscope. We tested each golf ball on the putting surface and around the greens before collecting data on 50-yard pitch shots, with a 7-iron and with a driver.

What to consider when buying a new golf ball?


Golf ball feel is a personal preference. Different balls on the market will feel softer or firmer depending on their compression and structure. It is crucial to test balls when putting, chipping and hitting long game shots to check you like the performance across all areas.


How far you want to hit the golf ball is a crucial consideration when picking a brand and model. Getting the right compression relative to your swing speed and strike will help you get the maximum distance out of a golf ball. You also need to consider if getting maximum distance is important to you or if you would rather give up some yardage to gain in other areas.


Generally, lower handicappers are looking for a ball that spins more so they can get more control around the greens. In this case, getting a ball with a urethane cover is really important as it will give you the most spin and control.


Not everyone wants to spend £50 a dozen on golf balls. When picking the right golf ball for you, you should consider how much you want to spend relative to what performance you want.

You’ve probably spent a small fortune to get the set up that’s right for your game, so don’t forget to get specialist insurance from Golf Care to protect your clubs from theft, loss, and accidental damage. Plus, they even cover GPS watches, trolleys, and other golf equipment.
