Under the same impact force, a solid golf ball will have a longer overall distance in warm weather than in cold weather. That's why there is a business for golf ball warmer.
yes, the hotter the ball the softer it becomes it will then affect the COR (coefficient of restitution)
Yes, the warmer a ball is the further it will fly and similarly, the colder it is the shorter it will fly. You are not allowed to deliberately alter the temperature of a golf ball, this is against the rules.
Not really. Dimples are designed to give the ball stability during flight. The club and the core of the ball determine distance.

Of course. Does a baseball go farther in Denver than in Boston. You betcha!
Q: How does temperature affect the distance that a golf ball will travel?A: Golf balls are made from a solid or liquid core with tightly-wound materials, and require a certain amount of elasticity in order to release kinetic energy during a collision (bounce). The property of elasticity is affected by temperature. Warm balls have a greater ability to flex during a collision, thereby recovering more kinetic energy than golf balls at colder temperatures. This scientific principle is called the coefficient of restitution. Simply put, the ball's 'bounciness' is dependent on the elasticity of the materials, and the bouncier the ball, the farther it will travel when struck by a golf club.
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.
The longest distance a golf ball has been hit is about 418.78m or 458yards by America in Guinees book of Records.
a golf ball, which can be hit over a distance of more than 300 meters.

Hit the ball as hard as you can!
the distance should be about the same as a sand wedge
it pulls it down ...
they have different names on them. They also have different patterns of dimples, and different weights. Those factors affect the speed of the ball. That affects the distance the ball can travel.
A golf ball can be used in any weather. When it is cold you should use a distance ball, just to give you a bit more distance, but you sacrifice some control.
A warmer ball will come off the clubface with more velocity and spin than a colder ball, encouraging loft. The ball's temperature also has an effect on bounce. Heat gives the ball more elasticity, creating a ball that bounces more and travels longer.
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.
No, logos on golf balls do not affect the playability of the ball in anyway.
The higher the loft the more distance it will go such as a 3 iron (14 degrees). The lower the loft (such as 56 degrees) the shorter the distance such as a sand wedge.
