Betting is an integral part of the game of golf. Punters bet large sums of money on the game, and even players themselves place bets while on the course. Apart from betting on the result of a match, the most common form of betting on golf is called Nassau. Here players bet on the first nine holes, on the second nine, and on the overall result.

Another popular form of betting by golfers is to play for “units”. Units are won for a lot of different feats – for example, closest to the pin, birdies, the longest drive and par saves from bunkers.

Bookmakers offer various options for betting on golf:

  • Betting to Win – You place a bet on a player to win. If the odds are 10/1 and your player wins, you get $10 for every $1 you bet, plus your original stake back.
  • Betting on a Place Finish – Bet on varying place finishes and the odds are the same whether the golfer finishes 2nd or 5th. If you place $1 on a player to finish at 20/1 and the player is successful, you win a proportion of the odds, plus your original stake back. If the proportion is ¼, your place odds are ¼ x 20/1 = 5/1. This means that you will win $5 for every $1 you bet.
  • Betting Each Way – A combination of “Betting on a Place Finish” and “Betting to Win”. You pay the same stake for each part of the bet. If, for example, you pay $1 each way for a player winning at 10/1 and your player wins and secures a place, you get $10 for the win plus $2.50 for the place. If the player does not win but finishes in a place, you lose the win bet but win on the place bet.
  • Match Bet – You bet on whether one player will beat or tie with another over a stroke-play tournament.
  • Group Betting – The bookie selects a group of golfers, gives them odds of beating the rest of the group, and you have to pick the winner.
  • Two Ball Bet -You bet on whether one player will outscore another over one round.
  • Three Ball Bet – You bet on whether one player will outscore another two players over one round.
  • Combination Betting – You combine more than one of the above bets but you must win all the bets to win. The payout is equal to all the individual odds multiplied.
