If a golf ball has been used would it go farther than a brand new ball?

No, most likely it would go pretty much the same distance unless it has some damage. You probably wouldn't be able to notice much of a difference unless you are a very consistent striker of the golf ball.However, if you were using a real old school gutta-percha type ball then it would go farther after use. This is because the ball did not have dimples and after use it developed nicks and scratches that served as dimples. The reason dimples allow a golf ball to fly farther is a whole other topic however.

Where can you get a smooth golf ball?

You cannot buy a smooth golf ball, it would not have a consistent flight. If you have plenty of time on your hands you could sand the dimples off a golf ball and see how unpredictable it is. Answer: That was the original golf ball, I don't think if it's still existing. Golf balls have dimples because it has a purpose and not jus a design. If you would know why, then I bet you will like the new one.

Who created the golf ball?

Golf BallsGolfers soon tired of hitting pebbles and tried other things. The earliest man-made golf balls included thin leather bags stuffed with feathers (they did not fly very far). The gutta-percha ball was invented in 1848 by Reverend Adam Paterson. Made from the sap of the Gutta tree, this ball could be hit a maximum distance of 225 yards and was very similar to its modern counterpart.In 1898, Coburn Haskell introduced the first one-piece rubber cored, when professionally hit these balls reached distances approaching 430 yards.According to "The Dimpled Golf Ball" by Vincent Mallette during the early days of golf the balls were smooth. Players noticed that as balls became old and scarred, they traveled farther. After a while players would take new balls and intentionally pit them.In 1905, golf ball manufacturer William Taylor was the first to add the dimple pattern using the Coburn Haskell ball. Golf balls had now taken on their modern form.
