Betfred offer a comprehensive golf betting product alongside player prices that are often market-leading – now there’s a cracking combination for golf punters. Strong prices, In-Play betting, excellent mobile betting functionality and additional each-way places at the biggest golf tournaments make Betfred a strong candidate when it comes to having an active sportsbook account ready for your golf betting. Betfred also gives punters access to their famous ‘Double Delight’ and ‘Hat-Trick Heaven’ promotions which have been incredibly popular with football punters for years. Now comfortably in Europe’s Top 10 online bookmakers, the self-proclaimed ‘Bonus King’ offers a top-notch sportsbook product.

A large number of Golf Betting System readers use Betfred as part of their bookmaker portfolio – here’s what some of them had to say about Betfred with a specific slant on their golf betting odds, promotions and overall offering.

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. Betfred golf betting review by KB. Rating: 4/5

“Betfred odds are very good and have been for a while now. They’ve also upped their game in terms of places available, generally offering 7 paid places on both tours. Betfred golf betting review by MA. Rating: 5/5

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. Betfred golf betting review by MW. 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.” Betfred golf betting review by TB. 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. Betfred golf betting review by DP. Rating: 3/5

Overall Rating 3.9/5 (5 reviews)

    Betfred Golf Betting Coverage

    Betfred cover the biggest golf tournaments across the globe. Extended each-way places used to be available only at the Major Championships with Betfred, but with their new drive to be ultra-competitive on golf they’re now offering 6 and 7 places each-way on full-field events week-in, week-out. 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, so look to bet365 and Paddy Power if you’re a dedicated golf punter who seeks value in these smaller tournaments around the world.

    In terms of Betfred getting markets up on a Monday, they are renowned for being one of the latest bookmakers to launch their tournament coverage, so expect European Tour by Monday lunchtime and PGA Tour by Monday early evening UK time. But truth is you cannot be 100% sure that you have backed your selections at the very best price until Betfred go live with their markets – that’s because the Warrington-based bookmaker have made a concerted effort to offer very strong odds. A £250,000 maximum golf payout, which again has recently been increased, is bigger than a whole host of competitors.

    Betfred’s dedicated mobile platform is also worth pointing out for those who use their phones 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, Will There Be a Play Off and Hole in One by Top Players.

    £250,000 across any golf bet with Betfred.

    Betfred In-Play Golf Betting

    When it comes to In-Play, golf betting markets are available on PGA Tour and European Tour events with Betfred. Traditionally you can bet on the Outright Market during each round. Betfred tend to offer 5 places each-way at 1/4 odds right through until the start of Round 2 in full-field events. That alone makes having a sportsbook account with them more than worthwhile for golf enthusiasts.

    Betfred Golf Betting Odds

    As you would expect, we keep as close as we can to player odds here at Golf Betting System. Betfred have undoubtedly improved their prices of late and a strengthening of their odds has to be welcomed. With Betfred relatively slow to open up their golf markets on a Monday, we would always recommend waiting for Betfred to go live, on the basis that they always surprise when it comes to actually offering market-beating prices on very popular players as well as those further down the list.

    Betfred Extended Each-Way Places

    If you’re a regular golf punter or a relative newbie to the sport, our 2019 each-way place research covering Major Championship, European Tour and PGA Tour strokeplay tournaments is well worth a read here.

    Betfred aren’t shy in coming forward when it comes to offer long shot punters additional each-way places at both the Major Championships, but now also across the week-to-week PGA and European Tour schedules. Undoubtedly 2019 has seen the Warrington-based bookmaker focus on its golf proposition so as to grow its customer base. Indeed the 2019 U.S. Open and Open Championship saw Betfred offering 8 places each-way at 1/5 odds across both tournaments for the very first time. And where Betfred would often only offer 5 places each-way across the PGA and European Tours, that has recently been massively bolstered with 6 or 7 places each-way at 1/5 odds now the norm in full-field European Tour tournaments and 7 places each-way at 1/5 odds the norm in full-field PGA Tour events.

    Betfred are undoubtedly now very much on the pace with both odds and each-way terms., beating the vast majority of the competition and at the US Open in 2019 they broke their ceiling for Major championship each-way places by offering 8 spots at 1/5 odds  – for more details read our Betfred 8 places each way page.

    Below you’ll find detailed Betfred Major Championship each-way terms offered since 2012:

    • The Masters: 5 EW – 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019; 7 EW – 2018; 8 EW – 2020.

    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. Even today it’s the market-leader with available pre-match and in-play. Throw in their Goals Galore coupon and a new ACCA Insurance product on 5+ folds and football is well catered for. Betfred naturally give Guaranteed Best Odds on British and Irish Horse Racing and they also offer a Free Bet if your selection finished 2nd to the Favourite on a selected meeting every day.

    • 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, Kane and Salah – 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.
    • ACCA Insurance: Place a 5+fold football match result accumulator (odds per leg of 1/3 or greater) on selected leagues and if one team lets you down, Betfred refund your stake as a free bet up to £10.
    • 2nd to SP Fav: Back a horse in any race from Betfred’s selected daily meeting, and should it finish 2nd to the SP Favourite, Betfred will refund your stake as a free bet up to £10.
    • Horse Racing Best Odds Guaranteed: If you take a price with Ladbrokes and the starting price is higher then they pay you out at the higher odds. There are some exclusions such as ante-post and In-Play bets amongst others but this is a great offer as horse racing odds can shorten or lengthen very quickly, especially at the big meetings like the Cheltenham Festival.
