A low handicap or professional lady golfer will use the same ball as men do. But for amateur ladies who are just starting the game or have a slow swing speed there is a tremendous difference between Golf balls. A ladies golf ball will be harder, usually a two piece distance ball, with a firm outer layer. It is built in such a way, as ladies tend to have slower swing speeds so they need a ball that gets up in the air and maximises distance. Men don't usually have this problem so they would use a ball geared towards more spin, to help them stop the ball on the green.

Can men play golf with women's golf balls?

Men can play with womens' golf balls, but it is not really advisable for all. Womens' golf balls are distance balls with low spin, because generally women have slow swing speeds. Men have faster swing speeds and can let the club, not the ball do the work so don't need the extra distance. Also a man would struggle to stop the ball on the greens because of the low spin. On the ladies tours, they would use the same golf balls as the men do, because the professional ladies have quicker swing speeds.
