Betway offer a comprehensive golf betting product and are undoubtedly establishing themselves as one the leading online sports bookmakers in the United Kingdom and across Europe. A pureplay online bookmaker, Betway are now a serious sportsbook to consider for golf betting with strong coverage of the Majors, PGA and European Tours. Their intentions to recruit golf punters can be seen in the fact that they now offer a completely unique ‘You Lead You Win’ promotion where the leader at end of day 1, or even day 2 and day 3 at the Major Championships is paid out in cash as the tournament winner (T&Cs apply).

Launched in 2006, Betway, like so many online bookmakers, are based in Malta and Guernsey. They have a rapidly growing customer profile of over 1.7 million and they have dedicated sites for the UK and a vast number of European countries. In 2015 Betway became the lead sponsor of West Ham United for £20 million until 2018, plus they’ve used high-profile sporting events on Sky Sports such as Premier League Darts and Froch vs Groves to build their brand exposure. Betway’s customer numbers in the UK and Ireland have been fuelled by a very competitive sports promotion where new customers receive a free no quibble bet of up to £/€30 based solely on their first deposit.

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

I haven’t had a Betway account for long but have no complaints yet and use them a fair bit for betting on my phone. The iPhone app is pretty good compared to some others I’ve used and prices for golf are OK. Reviewed by MW. Rating: 4/5

As one of the newer kids on the block, Betway has to try to stand out against the traditional ‘big boys’ and often their golf odds do just that. Just need to see a few more customer loyalty giveaway contests in the future I’d humbly suggest! Reviewed by KB. Rating: 4/5

I use their app on a regular basis and it ranks as the easiest to use/quickest of the bookmakers I use. In regards to the golf markets, they’re easy enough to use but think they can do better with cross doubles in the win market. Reviewed by JR. Rating: 4/5

I have had an account with Betway for a year or so now and find it a very easy site to navigate. They offer decent golf odds and it’s easy to withdraw any winnings. The football betting is very good and they have some good offers on a weekly basis on most sports. Reviewed by KA. Rating: 4/5

I found Betway’s odds on the golf not to be that great – looking through other bookmakers I found them only to be a joint top price on only a few of the players over both tours. Betway offer the usual markets on the golf so the variety is there if you choose to open an account with them. Betway have plenty of promotions such as football acca insurance & best odds guaranteed on horse racing as well as other offers that can be found on their website. Reviewed by TB. Rating: 3/5

Overall Rating 3.8/5 (5 reviews)

Betway Golf Betting Coverage

Betway offer regular and occasional golf punters plenty of angles which make an account with them well worthwhile. Naturally they cover every Major Championship, World Golf Championship, PGA and European Tour tournament, and they’ve recently added strong coverage of second tier Tours such as the Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA Tour Champions. Markets are usually established on a Monday allowing the early value-hunters to get involved and grab an early price and there are a number of angles that make them stand out in a crowded golf betting market.

Whilst the likes of Ladbrokes and BetVictor continually give very poor value in terms of each-way places provided to their customers, Betway are far more aggressive and generous. For the PGA Tour and European Tour, Betway generally provide 7 places each-way 1/5 odds and 6 places each-way 1/5s odds respectively. Those terms tend to be flexible, so if the biggest profile tournament of the week is on the European Tour – these terms get reversed out. Safe to say presently that Betway offer for full-field tournament weeks an additional 3 places for their punters. 2019 also saw them consistently offer 8 places each-way at 1/5 odds across The Masters, PGA Championship, U.S. Open and the Open Championship. That was a strong offer, especially when linked with their Round Leaders Special promotion, more of which below.

Betway’s Golf Unique Selling Proposition is undoubtedly their Round Leader Wins Specials, which they run across the big tournaments. Place a pre-tournament Outright Winner bet, and if the player you back is the leader at the end of round 1, Betway pay you out as a winner. They pay out in cash at the close of tournament. This proposition in effect is a real no-brainer and at the 2019 Major Championships was boosted to not only cover round 1, but rounds 2 and 3 as well. T&Cs apply.

Typical Markets: Outright Winner, Outright Winner Without Favourite (if odds on), First Round Leader, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20, 72 Hole Match Bets, Group Bets, Play Off, Winning Margin, Hole in One, 2/3 Balls.

Maximum Golf Payout

£250,000 across any golf bet with Betway.

In-Play Betting

Betway facilitate in-play betting across the Majors, WGCs and European/PGA Tour events. Naturally you can bet on the Overall Market pre tee-off, but Betway often keep their each-way terms at 5 places each-way (1/4 odds) a couple of hours into the first day’s play for most events.

Betway Golf Betting Odds

As you would expect, we keep as close as we can to player odds here at Golf Betting System. Betway are competitive when compared to other bookmakers who offer extended each-way places. It’s inevitable that their headline prices sometimes suffer when they provide extended each-way places, however Betway undoubtedly have their own odds-compiler who isn’t shy to offer market best prices on players who they do not fancy. Compare Betway to the likes of Boylesports and Coral and they are equally competitive, giving their customer the chances to land players at good prices and with extra each-way places in their back pocket.

Extended Each-Way Places

Betway have undoubtedly raised their own internal bar when it comes to offering competitive each-way terms. Previously they stuck rigidly to 5 places each-way at 1/4 odds for standard golf weeks and only extended to 6 places each-way 1/4 odds for the Major Championships. However that has all changed, as strategically they look to grow their golf betting market share. 2019 saw them offer a generous and consistent 8 places each-way at 1/5 odds across all of the 4 Majors, totalling 12 additional Major places over the industry standard. And for regular golf bettors, Betway offer 7 places each-way at 1/5 odds for the highest profile tournament each week, with a supporting 6 places each-way at 1/5 odds on the other tournament. Naturally this statement is on the basis of full-field events and is subject to change.

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.

Below you’ll find detailed Betway Major Championship each-way terms offered since 2019:

  • The Masters: 8 Places Each-Way – 2019 – 1/5 odds.
  • PGA Championship: 8 Places Each-Way – 2019 – 1/5 odds.
  • US Open: 8 Places Each-Way – 2019 – 1/5 odds.
  • Open Championship: 8 Places Each-Way – 2019 – 1/5 odds.
