“Betfred do not seem to get quite as much coverage as some of the other bigger players. But they often have very good prices on golfers, and their mobile site is excellent. Another reason to like Betfred is their weekly £500 giveaway pot competition on Facebook. It is split among everyone who predicts a chosen sporting event correctly – if you get an unlikely result right - i.e. a 66-1 winning horse - you can win a BIG free bet!” Reviewed by KB, Dec 2014. Rating: 4/5
“I use Betfred more for football betting than golf to be honest as their enhanced acca coupon is the best out there, however if the price is right on my golfer I'll use them too. No problems to date and haven't capped any of my golf bets like some of the other bookies.” Reviewed by MW, Dec 2014. Rating: 4.5/5
“I tend not to use Betfred so much as they rarely go top price on players and don't always price up the smaller tours like the Asian Tour etc. But when I have used them I've always found them to be fine though I've heard differing views from others that I know who have had customer service issues.” Reviewed by TB, Dec 2014. Rating: 2/5
“I use Betfred on golf generally when I have free bets that I have won then usually stick them on the 150/1 shots and above. Prices are reasonably competitive. Do have the best prices on the fav but I try to avoid any single figure price.” Reviewed by DP, Dec 2014. Rating: 3/5

Betfred Golf Betting Coverage
Betfred cover the biggest golf tournaments across the globe and tend to offer additional each-way places across the Major Championships, plus Wentworth's BMW PGA Championship and The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. Every European Tour and PGA Tour tournament is covered across the golf calendar and Betfred also price up Overall Markets for the PGA Tour's Champions Tour and the LPGA. Secondary level Tour events though are not covered as extensively by Betfred. Look to Sky Bet, bet365, Paddy Power and Stan James if you're a dedicated golf punter who seeks value in these smaller tournaments around the world.
Golf markets tend to be in place on Mondays for both Main Tours. One of the main advantages of having a sportsbook account with them is the fact that they always price the top 4/5 in the market very competitively so it's often possible to get the very best price on a market-leader on a Monday, before they are tipped by the respected tipsters. If you miss that, Betfred will always be at the top end of the prices across the top of the market right through till the first tee time. On top of that, Betfred often give knowledgeable each-way punters top prices on players around the 150/1 to 300/1 mark which can be profitable, especially if you are comfortable with laying players on Betfair Exchange. A £250,000 maximum golf payout is bigger than a whole host of competitors.
Betfred's dedicated mobile platform is also worth pointing out for those who use their smartphones and tablets to place bets. Recognised as one of the very best in the market, Betfred's mobile apps and platforms making placing ante post, pre-event and In-Play golf bets a doddle.
Typical Markets include Outright Betting, Top 5, Top 10, 1st Round Leader, 2/3 Balls, Mythical 2 Balls, Mythical 2 Ball - Draw No Bet, Match Betting, Tournament Group Betting, Top American/European/Scottish/Australian/Asian/Korean, Hole in One, Winning Margin and Will There Be a Play Off.
Maximum Golf Payout
£250,000 across any golf bet with Betfred.
When it comes to In-Play, golf betting is available on PGA Tour and European Tour events. Traditionally you can bet on the Outright Market during each round.
As you would expect, we keep as close as we can to player odds here at Golf Betting System. Betfred always offer value across the top 4/5 in the markets each week - and that's value that remains from Monday through to tournament tee off. Longshot hunters can always find market leading prices across the 150/1 to 300/1 price range.
Extended Each-Way Places
Betfred aren't shy in coming forward when it comes to offer long shot punters additional each-way places at the Major Championships. 2014 saw them headline at the Hoylake hosted Open Championship where they went with a huge 8 places each-way (1/4 odds). Naturally their player prices suffered as a result but Betfred backers of Eduardo Molinari were ecstatic as he delivered a £500 return from a £10 each-way stake for his sole 8th place finish. On top of The Open, Betfred also went 6 places each-way at both the U.S. Open and PGA Championships in 2014.
Below you'll find detailed Betfred's historical Major Championship each-way terms offered across the past 3 years:
Betfred Sports Promotions
Betfred push the boundaries when it comes to giving their customers added value each and every week. That statement makes sense when you understand that their huge success in acquiring customers in recent times has been down to their innovative Double Delight and Hat-trick Heaven football promotion which was revolutionary when it was introduced. Today Betfred give Guaranteed Best Odds on British and Irish Horse Racing, but unlike plenty of their rivals they are uniquely giving money back across both PDC Darts and Greyhounds.
Double Delight & Hat-trick Heaven. If first goalscorer markets are your thing look no further than Double Delight and Hat-trick heaven with Betfred. If you select the correct first goalscorer and they go onto score further goals, Betfred will boost the odds you receive. A second goal doubles your first goalscorer odds and naturally a hat-trick means that your odds are tripled. Can't say fairer than that. Ronaldo, Messi, Robben and Suarez - they deliver month-on-month with this promotion.
Goals Galore. The original fixed odds BTTS coupon and arguably still the best. Select 3 matches or more for massively enhanced odds.
PDC Darts ACCA Insurance. Place any 5-fold ACCA in a PDC darts tournament and, if 1 leg lets you down, Betfred will return losing stakes as a free bet up to £25.
Greyhounds. Beaten By A Head Or Less - Greyhound punters whose selections are beaten by a head or less receive a full refund on stakes up to a maximum of £200. In a recent week in 2015, that equated to 12 races, so this unique promotion is a significant tool for savvy punters.
