Golf Balls will travel the farthest when the weather is hot but if you want them to travel even farther play at a higher altitude. The thinner air will allow the golf ball to travel farther because there is less air resistance. You should be able to drop down one or two clubs depending on the altitude.

Why does a golf ball heavier than table tennis ball?

A table tennis ball is made of plastic, and is hollow. A golf ball is made of a composite of materials, and has a solid core, allowing it to travel much further through the air (by adding mass, the momentum of the ball increases).

Do warm golf balls go farther?

Yes, a warm golf ball will travel farther than one that is cold. Just like any sports ball, when it is warmer it can compress much more when struck, allowing it to travel farther. Just the other day I went and played golf in 40 degree weather and my ball flight went nowhere.

What goes further a golf ball with a lot of dimples or a golf ball with fewer dimples?

A golf ball with more dimples goes the furthest because the more dimples the straighteir the accurcy and line up is.

Does the bouciness of a golf ball effect the distane?

The way a golf ball bounces definitely affects the distance that it will travel. There are different weights and types of golf balls for this reason.

Will a golf ball travel farther than any other golf ball when hit by a golf club if the golf ball bounces higher than the other golf balls when dropped from the same distance?

Yes, theoretically. The golf ball's rate of transferring energy (in this case elastic) is dependent on its COR (coefficient of restitution) - which is basically a rate of how rigid the shell is. In simple words, yes. The golf ball that bounces higher than other golf balls is bouncier than the other golf balls. If you hit a rubber ball with a golf club, the ball should travel farther than all the regular golf balls.

What kind of golf ball should be used in cold weather?


How does the temperature of the golf balls affect the golf balls height?

A warm golf ball will come off the club faster than a cold ball, with subsequent more spin. So up until a realistic point, a warm ball will fly higher and farther than a cold one. Largely because a cold ball is harder to compress than a warm softer one. Will being cold or warm cause a golf ball to fly at a higher trajectory relative to it's distance.
