Want to send your golf ball far off the tee?
Whilst there are lots of things you probably wish you could do with your golf balls, more distance is almost always at the top of golfers’ priority lists.
Many years ago, achieving extra yardage meant you’d have to make sacrifices elsewhere but, nowadays, golf ball manufacturers are finding ways to improve feel, control and distance. Some are also incorporating alignment aids and offering more colour options than ever before.
Here at Clarkes’ Golf Centre, we are proud to supply everything from premium golf balls to budget golf balls for all handicaps.
Although we’re confident you’ll find the best golf balls for distance on our website, to make an informed decision, you will need to test them out.
Here are some of our top picks to try when seeking more distance.
6 of the best distance golf balls
Bridgestone E12 Contact
Bridgestone has created the E12 Contact golf balls to replace the E12 Soft and E12 Speed balls.
These three-piece balls have an ionomer cover that feels soft on impact, as well as a new and distinctive Contact Force dimple design with a raised area in the middle.
Offering more contact than any other, Bridgestone’s matte green, yellow and red golf balls offer better ball speeds, distance and accuracy with every hit. And they provide more grip and spin around the green.
Callaway Chrome Soft
The new and improved Chrome Soft golf balls from Callaway offer tour performance with a soft feel.
The thin urethane cover allows you to generate power whilst maintaining control in your shot. A Graphene Dual Soft Fast core minimises spin and promotes a higher launch. This ultimately allows you to achieve those longer distances.
3. Callaway Warbird
Synonymous with distance and speed, the Callaway Warbird golf balls (available in yellow or white) are certainly worth your attention.
These golf balls use a two-piece construction, with an extra-large, high-energy core that unlocks long distances at any swing speed.
Callaway opted to use an ionomer cover for feel and control and HEX aerodynamics to reduce drag – generating more speed, hang time and distance.
As their name suggests, Srixon’s premium soft Distance golf balls deliver optimum distance via greater velocity and a higher launch angle, resulting in a penetrating ball flight.
Srixon Distance balls also boast a softer compression than their predecessors and have fewer dimples to reduce drag and promote ball flight, particularly in windy conditions.
5. Titleist Pro V1X
Titleist’s next-generation Pro V1X golf balls (in yellow or white) feature an impressive new formula that offers faster ball speeds and low spin, benefiting your long game.
These golf balls have been designed to deliver long distances, helping you shoot lower scores.
The ball’s dimples have also been laser etched to ensure greater consistency. So, when playing with the Pro V1X balls, you can expect a more aerodynamic flight.
Looking to promote longer and straighter shots? New for 2022, the Titleist Velocity golf balls are perfect.
A bigger (and faster!) LSX core boosts ball speeds while keeping spin down for long distances.
The aerodynamics have been improved to promote a high-flying trajectory, which offers greater stopping power with your irons.
