Did you know golfing at least once a month lowers the risk of death? According to a study published on, golfing dropped the risk of death from 24.6 to 15.1 percent. Awesome, right?

It doesn’t matter that golfing requires little athleticism and physical contact. Walking around the golf course and swinging clubs can keep you living longer. Sadly, this article isn’t about staying healthy by golfing.

Instead, our focus is on making money by using free golfing bets and bonuses. We’ll explain the different types of bonuses out there and how you can use them to win money. Sounds good? Let’s get started.

No Deposit Free Bet

A no deposit bonus is a welcome free bet given to you after you create an account at a golf betting website. It’s the easiest bonus you can claim from a sportsbook. But is it worth claiming? It depends.

Betting companies give out two types of no deposit bonuses: a free bet whose profits you can withdraw or an offer whose winnings are not withdrawable. At all times, choose a no deposit that lets you cashout your profits.

Because bookmakers give you this bonus to make you feel safe on their websites, the bonus is usually small. You can get one free bet worth £5 or £10 and that’s alright. If you can convert it into cash, then it’s worth the simple effort of creating an account.

First Deposit Bonus

After you decide which bookie to bet on, next is usually to make a deposit. Most bookies give you the option of claiming a bonus to boost your capital. Should you claim it? Not always: take time to read the fine print.

Although not unusual to find a deposit-based bonus with zero terms, most of them come with terms and conditions. There’s a rule on the amount of money you can place in a single bet. There’s also a limit on the maximum you can win. And importantly, there’s a policy regarding how to withdraw your profits.

That said, deposit-based bonuses come in generous proportions. Picture this. There’s a bet 5 get 20 pounds worth of bonuses. There’s an option to wager £10 and receive £30 and there’s also a common offer that matches your first deposit 100%.

Regardless of your preferred bonus type, there’s no doubt you can receive great value from a first deposit golf betting bonus. As mentioned, though, a good bonus isn’t seen in the amount alone. You need to look at all its terms and conditions.

Money Back Bonus

There’s an upcoming round of the PGA tour in the UK. You think you know who will win. But you don’t want to risk your money. A money back bonus can come to your rescue. Basically, bookies give you the chance to bet on any golfing event.

If you win, that’s alright. You’re free to keep both your money plus profits. But if you lose, the bookmaker returns your stake. In other words, it’s a win-win bonus type. There’s really no risk involved.

Many betting websites give out this bonus as a welcome gift or as a promotion when there’s a major golf tournament. They know players are excited to wager. But it’s a competitive event with no clear favorite. In that case, some bookies take the risk of giving out money back bonuses to loyal players.

As always, the reward come with rules. For example, there might be a minimum bet. Additionally, there’s a maximum win limit and wagering requirements. Bonus conditions aren’t a red flag. They’re necessary but always ensure they are terms you can fulfill.

Stake Not Returned Bonus

In the previous bonus type, betting companies return your money after you lose in a golf bet. In stake not returned bonus, sportsbook do the opposite. They give you the money to bet with, on condition you can only keep profits.

Let’s say you receive a £10 stake no returned bonus to bet on the FEDEXCUP tournament. You pick Patrick Cantlay of the US and win £20. Based on the terms of this bonus, you can keep your £20 profit but not the initial £10 stake.

It’s a great bonus, nonetheless. Like many types of betting bonuses, this freebie eliminates risk. It gives you money to risk with and if you lose, there’s no dent in your wallet. Instead, you get a chance to make some money out of the freebie.

Reload Bonus

This is a popular bonus that could help increase your bankroll all year round. That’s because it’s a regular offer. At the best sportsbooks, you receive this bonus weekly. For example, you can claim a 30% reload bonus for your first deposit of the week.

At other betting platforms, the reload bonus comes once in a month. Still, there is a small number of bookmakers that give out this bonus almost every time you deposit. Owing to that backdrop, you want a bookie that gives out the offer regularly.

Cashback Bonus

A cashback is a great way of minimizing losses while betting on golf. The explanation is straightforward. This bonus comes in the form of cash. No need to fulfill a dozen terms and conditions.

If you qualify for a £20 cashback, you’re at liberty to use the money as you wish, including to cash it out. So, how do you qualify for cashback bonuses? Not every bookmaker has this program.

As such, the first step is to find a betting website with a cashback program. Second, find out the rules for qualifying for the bonus. In many cases, the only requirement is to wager using real cash regularly.

VIP Rewards

VIP players bet loads of money regularly. Interestingly, anyone can become a VIP club member. That’s because today’s VIP programs use tier-based systems that reward everyone regardless of their budgets.

You’re entered into the first tier VIP level after your first bet. And then you build your way up the ladder with time. The rewards for being a VIP player are plenty: fast customer service, quick payouts, regular free bonuses, cash prizes and free match-day tickets.
