A golf ball will travel quite differently in space.

Alan Shepard, Jr. (1923-1998), commander of Apollo 14, launched on January 31, 1971, made the first golf shot on the moon. He attached a six iron to the handle of the contingency sample return container, dropped a golf ball on the moon, and took a couple of one-handed swings.

He missed with the first, but connected with the second. The ball, he reported, sailed for miles and miles.
