William Hill were once in the doldrums when it came to golf betting value, with a pretty disinterested approach. That has all changed now though, with a host of additional each-way places every week and guaranteed best odds on the big tournaments. For the Major Championships William Hill consistently offer 9 places each-way at 1/5 odds the place – that goes back to the 2021 Masters Tournament. Plus, 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.
At Golf Betting System, the Number 1 Independent resource for golf betting, we monitor the number of each-way places provided by the leading online bookmakers in the UK and Ireland, every single week. William Hill ranked Number 5 in 2021 on the PGA Tour – you can view the latest golf each-way terms tracker here.
Such a high ranking in our analysis highlights that William Hill take the week to week action on the PGA Tour very seriously. You get 8 places each-way on full-field PGA Tour, which is fantastic, week-on-week value.
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.
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.” William Hill golf betting review by KB. 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.” William Hill golf betting review by TB. Rating: 2/5
William Hill offer a well-rounded, multi-dimensional golf betting product, with plenty of additional each-way places, strong odds and early Monday markets. You’ll find that their weekly PGA and DP World 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 Korn Ferry 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 on Majors and £250,000 on PGA and DP World Tour events, 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, challenging bet365. 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 DP World 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.
And their each-way additional place terms have also improved significantly placing them close to the top of the value offered chart. Indeed 9 places each-way at 1/5 odds have been their Major Championship terms since the 2021 Masters – read more below.
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, Make the Cut, Miss the Cut, Par 3 Winner, Par 4 Winner, Par 5 Winner and Play Off to Decide the Winner?

They also have a novel new play where you can bet live on each hole’s play across the televised feature groups.
