How to Make The Best Golf Bets

April 26, 2018

We all love watching a game of golf - as well as all of the theory and practice behind it - so why not turn your love of the sport into a nice little money-maker?

Yes, it can be a little overwhelming if you're new to it, what with the number of odds, options to bet on and bookmakers, but once you get your head around it, it’s actually not so tough.

Here’s what you need to know about making online bets on golf.

Know Your Tournament Dates

It might sound strange to a golf fan, but knowing when the top golf tournaments are happening - and not having them sneak up on you - is a good way to get organised and get betting!

So whether it's the Masters (April) or the Ryder Cup (September), be on the lookout for special betting options offered by online bookmakers. Remember, the earlier you get to them, the better the deals!

How to Make The Best Golf Bets,

Try Out a Few Different Bets

Maybe you have a favourite player, or maybe you only want to bet on a certain event. Maybe you want to bet on a certain match. Either way, there’s a bet for you. While tournament bets are certainly the most popular market out there, sometimes it's fun to bet on your favourite player - and in a tournament, with hundreds of players, it can also be a good idea to place an each way bet!

Each way bets means you bet on a player to win the tournament, equally betting on that player to finish the tournament ‘placed’... a term which is defined by the bookmaker you choose, and which could be a top 5 finish, or a top 10 finish. The Place Odds usually change according to the lower placements, sp really check this out before committing to an each way bet!

Find a Bookie You Like (and Who Like You)

There are a lot of bookies out there, and finding the right one for you takes a bit of guesswork, as well as trial and error.

Look out for -
• Loads of different types of bets
• A nice range of promotions and offers for new and existing players
• A nice sign up bonus
• Other sports you might like to bet on, if that’s important to you.

It’s also worth looking out for any free bets on offer - some of the best free betting offers might be at bookies you wouldn’t have considered signing up to, so really check out a good range before committing to as many as you like.

How to Make The Best Golf Bets,

Watch Your Bankroll

Even though it's fun, and even if you get some of the best odds online, you're still using money to make bets and this should be managed and controlled.

Set yourself a budget - you can start small at first, and then when you have some more idea of what to expect from your betting, you can expand it.

You should always keep an eye on your bankroll, and if you find yourself going over your budget, it's time to stop.
