“I was pleasantly surprised with Tote, I thought that the site would be old-fashioned but it's actually pretty slick and from a golf point of view there's nothing negative I can say really. The odds are the same as Bet Fred for golf but I prefer the Tote site myself.” Reviewed by MW, Dec 2014. Rating: 4/5
“Use ad hoc as seem to be the same as using BetFred. I normally use if I have won a free bet via Twitter of FB. Generally offer the extra place and ok on prices..” Reviewed by DP, Dec 2014. Rating: 3/5

Totesport Golf Betting Coverage
Totesport share their betting platform with owner Betfred and that's a great thing when it come to golf. Golf markets are fully up to speed early each Monday so early-bird bargain hunters are well catered for at Totesport. They cover every Major, PGA Tour and European Tour golf tournament across the season. They also cover the Ladies Professional Golf Association which is a market where interest is continually growing.
Totesport's odds compiler is often very aggressive with price when it comes to the market favourites. It's often the case that the 1st and 2nd favourite in the big tournaments are biggest or joint-biggest price with Totesport and that's really attractive for punters who like the look of the big names in the highest quality tournaments. A £500,000 maximum payout at the Major Championships is also another aspect that will appeal to serious punters - other bookmakers can be as low as £100,000.
On the negative side, Totesport don't tend to price up the secondary level Tours such as the web.com, the Sunshine Tour or the Asian Tour. That's a downside for true golf punting regulars, but 95% of golf bets are well catered for by the Warrington-based sportsbook.
Outright Betting, Top 5, Top 10, 1st Round Leader, 2/3 Balls, Match Betting, Tournament Group Betting and Top American/European/Asian/Australasian/Rest of the World.
Totesport also have a novel approach to Hole in One betting. Yes or No is the standard bet, but you can back individual players at the head of the betting with Totesport at massively inflated prices.
Maximum Golf Payout
£500,000 across any golf bet with Totesport.
In-play is available on PGA Tour and European Tour events. Totesport allow you to bet during the action on the Outright Market during each round, with each-way terms reducing to 4 places 1/4 odds as soon as the action starts on standard full-field events. Prices tend to be competitive, but the fascination with In-Play betting is the fact that, in reality, it's punter versus odds compiler. Unlike some other operators, Totesport don't offer In-Play across the place markets, instead they focus solely on the outright market.
As you would expect, we keep as close as we can to player odds here at Golf Betting System. Totesport often like to lead on price across the top 2 players in the betting. Rory McIlroy backers take note! They traditionally also offer value in the 33/1 to 50/1 range - a section of the market that always attracts plenty of betting volume as it finds plenty of winners.
Extended Each-Way Places
They may not be a Paddy Power or Stan James when it comes to offering extended each-way places at the 4 Major Championships, but the facts are very clear. In 2014, punters using Boylesports and Betway for the Majors who like to find longer priced players to back each-way in 2014 would have been far better off betting with Totesport who offered an additional place spot across the 3 full-field events (The Masters field is always sub-100 players). This strategy has been consistent since 2012.
Below you will find Totesport's historical Major Championship each-way terms offered across the past 3 years:
