While there are many places to bet on PGA Golf on the internet, there are some golf sportsbooks that are simply head and shoulders above the rest.
What makes these golf bookies so much better? Plenty! A good golf book will offer a ton of head to head matchups with not just a golfer vs. one other golfer, but a golfer vs. many other golfers in the tournament. They will also offer odds to win the tournament, futures and prop bets as well.
We've scoured our list of sportsbook sponsors (which happen to be all the best books on the web) in search of who offers the best golf wagering. Here's what we came up with:
5Dimes - Simply the best! The most matchups, tons of props, futures and more! What we really like about 5 Dimes is that they also cover more than just the PGA. They offer the LPGA, Asian Tour, Seniors and EURO ranks!
Bovada - To nobody's surprise, Bodog makes this list as well. They are enormous in size and a very safe sportsbook to play with. They just keep getting bigger and better as their new latest concoction is live betting. Expect to find all the same great options as the two great golf bookies listed above but include sports betting on all other major sporting events, a high volume online poker room that assures you of finding your limit 24 hours a day and a full service online casino with the fairest odds on the internet.
Realbet - Deposit $100 to $500 and receive a matching dollar for dollar bonus! This is a great place to play for those of you who need to deposit using a credit card. This includes Mastercard!
Honorable Mention: Sportbet
Great but no U.S. players allowed: Pinnacle Sports.
Evergreen's Free Weekly Golf Picks - Each week, respected golf handicapper Evergreen swings for the green offering a free weekly head to head matchup pick.
5Dimes - Offers weekly matchups and odds to win tournament as well as some great prop bet offerings! PGA, European, Champions and LPGA Tours with updated outright odds available for each tour as well!.
Bookmaker - Gamble on golf matchups, props and odds to win using your credit card. They're one of the best at getting Visa/Mastercard to work for deposits. You get a generous free money bonus added to your account too!
Rules - They protect both you and the house should there be any descrepancies. We'll admit it. Golf betting rules are boring to read, but necessary.
