William Hill are the cornerstone of the UK’s sports betting industry and their online golf betting offering is becoming increasingly popular with punters. Strong coverage of the Major Championships, World Golf Championships plus the full PGA Tour and the European Tour schedules means that the tournaments you most want to bet on are fully covered. William Hill offer golf fans weekly podcasts and they’re well worth checking out at the Major Championships where they traditionally offer market-beating odds for periods of time in the build-up to first round. And in 2019, William Hill took the bold step of offering 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds for the very first time in their history at the Open Championship.
William Hill are second only to market leader bet365 when it comes to online traffic and that should hardly come as a surprise for a brand with iconic status and who have over 2,400 shops across the United Kingdom. A strong all-round website experience which includes great golf market navigation and excellent customer service makes for the kind of sportsbook product you would expect from a world leader who have been in existence for over 75 years.
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.
“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’s 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 early 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 ‘transatlantic double’. There are also another couple of profit boosting angles which make an active William Hill account essential for golf betting.
Of late, William Hill have really stepped up their efforts to be first to market for golf. So on Mondays the golf odds compilers in William Hill’s Leeds office are now getting their tournament odds out as soon as possible. So expect European Tour and PGA Tour markets out on Monday morning and lunchtime respectively. This in itself has increased the number of punters using William Hill to place their bets with as they are now giving early birds the chance to grab the very best odds on their selections.
Hills are also a strong bookmaker to have an active account with when it comes to the Majors. They offer additional each-way places on all 4 Major Championships – unlike close rivals Ladbrokes – but they are also well worth keeping an eye on in the immediate build-up to any Major Championship. 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. They have also run Super Bet Boosts at Major Championships where effectively punters can use the boost functionality within the William Hill Bet Slip, to manually boost odds and guarantee Wednesday Best Odds on their selections.
Typical markets include Outright Betting, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20, 1st Round Leader, 1st Round Mythical 3 Balls, 2/3 Balls, Mythical 2 Balls, Match Betting, Tournament Threesomes, Tournament Group Betting, Top American/European/Australian/Asian/GB/Spaniard etc, Margin of Victory and Play Off to Decide the Winner?
William Hill also have a #Your Odds facility where you can Tweet the odds compilers directly to ask for odds on any golf bet. Dustin Johnson to go Bogey Free in Round 1. Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson & Rory McIlroy All Top 20 Finish. Justin Thomas To Win The Tournament, Tiger Woods & Phil Mickelson Both Top 20 Finish. The opportunities are endless.
William Hill Maximum Golf Payout
£500,000 in the Win the Tournament market. £100,000 any other golf market with William Hill.
William Hill In-Play Golf 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 6 places each-way (1/5 odds) until the start of the second 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 golf punters will tell you that William Hill slightly disappoint on prices. However of late their competitiveness has undoubtedly improved. Take the 2019 Open Championship where they both historically went 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds for the very first time and were industry-leading on price across all bookmakers who paid 10 places. Tie that in with the fact that William Hill now often lead the way with their markets being first up and undoubtedly Monday punters can grab a market-best price with William Hill. Their tactical market-leading price activity on the Wednesday morning of a Major is well worth bearing in mind as well, especially if they use Super Bet Boosts as they have previously.
William Hill 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.
William Hill are 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. 7 places each-way at 1/5 odds was given to William Hill customers at the 2019 PGA Championship and U.S. Open, with an historic 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds being offeref for the very first time at the 2019 Open Championship (for further details read our William Hill 10 places each way page). William Hill have offered 6 places each-way 1/5 odds across the PGA and European Tours for a long time now on full field events. So William Hill are undoubtedly now very much on the pace with both odds and each-way terms, beating the vast majority of the competition.
