It would depend on what you bounce them on and what material the bouncy ball is made of. Most surfaces and materials would mean the bouncy ball goes higher, but a few could result in the Golf ball being better.

Does the size of a bouncy ball affect the height it bounces?

A little, to the extent that a smaller (lighter) ball is fighting the pull of gravity less as it bounces upward, so it may get a little higher. But the height the ball bounces is much more dependent upon the resiliency - the "springiness" - of the rubber or rubber compound the ball is made from.

Which bounces higher a rubber basketball or a leather basketball?

It all depends on how much air there is inside, where you bounce it, and how you bounce it. Well if there were same amount of air, bounced on the same surface and with the same power, a rubber ball would bounce higher. But that doesn't mean a rubber basketball is simply better. People certainly would choose a leather basketball, because it looks better and has a better quality, and can last longer if played indoors. If you were looking for which is better, I would say that's totally upto you, whether you play indoors (a leather ball would be heaps better), or outdoors (a rubber ball is much better in this case). But if you were looking for which bounced higher, it is definitely rubber. This is because a rubber cover is harder than a leath covering. When something is harder, this allows to put more pressure when the ball hits the floor. This causes the ball to bounce higher.
