- Some Sewn Leather Balls

Below are some images of balls that have some similarly to feathery golf balls...in terms of they have sewn leather outers. However, they are not heavy enough or solid enough for playing golf.

I believe this to be a pelota ball (or some similar game). The balls were found in Spain.

The following balls were made by British prisoners-of-war in German during during WWII. To kill time, or maybe even to act as a diversion for more nevarious actvities, small "golf courses" were laid out within some camps. These balls are great exsamples of balls made by POWs.
