We've listed below a few of our favourite golf balls currently being sold on Scottsdale Golf, one of the leading golf retailers in the UK.

So if you're planning on wrapping up warm and hitting the course, add some fresh golf balls to your bag and shoot some low scores in low temperatures!

Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Balls


Now in its sixth generation, the Srixon Z-STAR XV is a premium four-piece golf ball that provides maximum distance and gives skilled players complete tour performance from tee to green.

FastLayer Core: The new FastLayer Core is soft in the center and gradually becomes firm around its edge, providing high-speed players exceptional feel and tremendous ball speed for maximum distance.

4th Generation Spin Skin with SeRM: A new urethane coating with flexible molecular bonds that dig deep into wedge and iron grooves, maximizing spin for more control and more stopping power.

338 Speed Dimple Pattern: Offering less drag and more lift, the 338 Speed Dimple Pattern boosts overall distance and flies straight, even in the toughest wind conditions.


TaylorMade TP5 Golf Balls


MORE SPEED: Packed with new technologies, the latest TP5 ball is even faster with a greater rebound effect and optimized spin rates. There’s no ball faster, no ball longer, and no ball better than the most complete Tour ball.

THE TP5 DIFFERENCE: Compared to TP5x, TP5 offers lower compression, lower launch, and more wedge spin to help improve your short game—ultimately, TP5 provides a more workable golf ball with softer feel.
5-LAYER CONSTRUCTION: The key to achieving enhanced speed without negatively affecting spin performance comes from TaylorMade’s proprietary 5-layer ball construction. Including a Tri-Fast Core that delivers maximum carry and low drag and a Dual-Spin Cover that features an ultra-soft, highly durable cast urethane cover, TP5/TP5x offer complete tee-to-green performance without sacrifice.  

NEW SPEED-LAYER SYSTEM: The new Speed-Layer System is comprised of four increasingly stiff layers to produce more ball speed. The result is more carry distance off the tee, more control in the wind, and more spin around the greens.


Mizuno RB Tour X Golf Balls


A faster tour ball with an incredible performance in the wind – due to Mizuno’s drag-reducing C-Dimple. Soft and responsive around the greens – with a 4 piece construction and a high traction urethane cover. Mid/low driver spin for flat to upward attack angles.

C-DIMPLE FOR REDUCED DRAG: Mizuno’s new Cone (C) Dimple is the result of 12 years of wind tunnel testing at Mizuno’s MT (Mizuno Technics) test facility. The C-Dimple creates more trigger points to keep fast-flowing air close to the ball’s surface for longer - simultaneously reducing drag, and strengthening trajectory. Under laboratory testing, a configuration of 360 Cone Dimples was discovered the most effective at producing a controllable, penetrating driver flight, and noticeable distance gains on full iron shots.


Titleist Pro V1x Golf Balls


Faster from core to cover, the new Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls have been designed to leave the clubface with more ball speed and lower long game spin for more distance while providing the best short game control to help golfers shoot lower scores.

17% Thinner Cover: A More Efficient Design. The proprietary cast thermoset urethane elastomer cover system provides the best scoring control. While great for generating high spin on approach shots and short game shots, the cover does not contribute speed. By reducing the cover thickness, we have added speed while retaining the spin and control.

New, Larger Casing Layer: More of What's Fast. The casing layer is the speed enhancing, spin optimising layer that helps power Pro V1 and Pro V1x for exceptional distance in the long game. The new Pro V1 and Pro V1x have larger casing layers, adding more fast material to their respective designs.

New, Fast Core: More Speed. Less Spin. Same Feel. The combination of the most advanced formulation and processing capabilities deliver powerful engines to Pro V1 and Pro V1x. The new cores have more speed and less spin while maintaining their feel characteristics and compression.


Bridgestone Tour B XS Golf Balls


Consistent flight and performance in the Tour B balls are a result of the proprietary Seamless Cover Technology. Designed and played by Tiger Woods, the choice of a true champion.

REACTIV Cover: REACTIV is a smart Urethane that acts as an 'impact modifier' to deliver a shock absorbing cover on slow impact shots for more spin and control (wedge) - and high resilience on high impact shots for more power and distance (drive). The cover reacts differently depending on the force of the impact.

Gradational Core: Added distance and forgiveness comes from the Gradational Compression core. Higher initial ball speed and lower side spin from the Gradational Compression core help give you an advantage on the course.

Dual Dimple Design: Extra distance and enhanced aerodynamics are a result of the Dual Dimple technology. The added distance comes from a more efficient ball trajectory thanks to less drag when the ball is in flight.

Seamless Cover: Consistent flight and performance are a result of the proprietary Seamless Cover Technology. The perfect performance and aerodynamic balance comes from a manufacturing processes that creates a perfectly balanced dimple pattern.
