A large number of Golf Betting System readers use William Hill as part of their bookmaker portfolio - here's what some of them had to say about William Hill with a specific slant on their golf betting odds, promotions and overall offering. For more bookmaker reviews click here.
“If you stopped someone in the street, or were watching Family Fortunes, and the question was ‘name a bookmaker’, the chances are a large chunk would say William Hill, Hills or Hillies. It’s the High Street betting chain many of us grew up using before the days of the internet. They are now very much in the midst of the internet betting generation and their website is easy to use. Their golf odds don’t always set the world alight, although at the time of writing this they have Paul Casey at 100-1 for the 2015 Open – he is half that elsewhere. Hills also have great free bet competitions with big prizes on offer. ” Reviewed by KB, Dec 2014. Rating: 5/5
“On the whole I find William Hill's golf markets to be quite poor compared to its competitors. It'ss not very often I use them, not because I've had a problems with them before but because they are rarely top price on the players that I want to back. On the odd occasion they go big on certain players on the Asian Tour, but for me its all too rare.” Reviewed by TB, Dec 2014. Rating: 2/5

William Hill Golf Betting Coverage
William Hill offer comprehensive coverage of worldwide golf from the Major Championships right through to the second tier of regional Tours. You'll find that their weekly PGA and European Tour markets are established on a Monday and the depth of the main Tour markets on offer are pretty strong with the main Top 5 and Top 10 place markets available with First Round Leader. Unlike other online bookmakers, William Hill also price up Overall Tournament Winner markets for the second tier Tours across Asian, OneAsia, Australasia, Japan Golf, Korean, South American and Sunshine Tours. In the United States the LPGA, Champions Tour and web.com Tour events are always priced up as well. It's worth noting that William Hill can often be the place to get excellent prices on the Far East Tours.
With a maximum golf payout of £500,000 William Hill is an excellent place to bet for serious golf punters who like a heavy stake, or for the masses of weekly punters who play the win / each-way double 'transatlantic challenge'. There are also another couple of profit boosting angles which make an active William Hill account essential for golf betting.
Hills offered a cracking 7 places each-way at both the 2013 and 2014 Open Championships. Indeed they now offer extended each-way places at all three of the full-field Majors and that's great as traditionally Hills always go market leading price for a limited period on the Wednesday morning prior to each Major. It's a tactic that's advertised in the Racing Post and is perfect for making sure you get a more than acceptable late price.
Another real plus point with William Hill is their In-Play betting. If you like to bet In-Play on the Majors, WGCs and PGA/European Tour events, you will have probably noticed that the majority of online bookmakers switch immediately to 4 places each-way (1/4 odds). That's not the case with William Hill who still offer 5 places each-way a couple of hours (it varies dependant on the odds compiler's decision) into Day 1. That's a huge boost if you want to back a fast starter or are prepared to let a selection's price slide after a slow start.
Typical markets include Outright Betting, Top 5, Top 10, 1st Round Leader, 2/3 Balls, Mythical 2 Balls, Match Betting, Tournament Threesomes, Tournament Group Betting, Top American/European/Australian/Asian etc, Margin of Victory and Play Off to Decide the Winner?
William Hill Maximum Golf Payout

William Hill In-Play Betting
William Hill facilitate In-Play betting across the Majors, WGCs and European/PGA Tour events. Naturally you can bet on the Overall Market as is standard, but William Hill often keep their each-way terms at 5 places each-way (1/4 odds) well into the first day's play. They also have a novel new play where you can bet live on each hole's play across the televised feature groups.
William Hill Golf Betting Odds
As you might expect, we keep as close as we can to player odds here at Golf Betting System. It has to be said that as a rule William Hill disappoint on prices. They rarely market lead on price unlike one of their main rivals Coral, who have been mightily aggressive on price of late. Their tactical market-leading price activity on the Wednesday morning of a Major though is well worth bearing in mind.
William Hill Golf Each-Way Places
Where William Hill don't focus on player prices, they have massively improved their Major Championship extended each-way place proposition since 2012. That appeals to a mass of punters across the 4 biggest betting volume tournaments and is perfect when used in combination with their Wednesday morning market leading price activity.
Below you will find detailed William Hill's historical Major Championship each-way terms offered across the past 3 years:
William Hill Sports Promotions
William Hill cater for a very traditional market so their headline sports promotions focus solely on Football, Horse Racing and Greyhounds.
