As the final golf major of the year, the PGA Championship presents the last big opportunity for online bookmakers to attract new golf punters. What this means for gamblers is one last chance to take advantage of big golf betting promotions and value-added bonuses.
High Quality Golf Betting Sites:
The tournament is quickly approaching, but there is still time to get your hands on these offers. If you’re planning to bet on the PGA Championship, these offers will come in quite handy as they all provide special perks just for betting like you would have anyways. I will also be listing each betting site’s standard welcome bonus in case you’re in the market for a new bookmaker.
While doing research for this post, something I noticed is many other websites are passing off standard welcome bonuses as if they are unique to the PGA Championship. They are legitimate offers, but they aren’t special; they’re available year-round.
This post is dedicated exclusively to betting sites that are actually holding unique 2017 PGA Championship offers. It’s true I also explain each site’s standard welcome bonus, but the primary motivation behind this post is to list actual promotions for this golf tournament.
If you want to see basic welcome bonuses, just look at the list of recommended sites above. The rest of this post will only speak of online bookmakers that have something special for the PGA Championship.
William Hill PGA Championship Specials

William Hill have long been one of my favourite bookmakers due to their sterling reputation and tendency to post competitive odds. If you visit the golf betting section at WilliamHill.com and look at all the markets they have open, you will see one reserved for enhanced odds:
Click on that link and you will see the following enhanced odds PGA Championship markets at William Hill:
- Justin Rose to finish in top 10: 7/2 (was 11/4)

Coral PGA Championship Offers
- Each/way bets pay 1/5th odds down to 10 places
- Bet £5 Get £20 in Free Bets
10 Places Paid
Coral have extended their each-way bets down to 10 places paid. This means if you place an each-way bet on any golfer to win, you will be paid at that golfer’s full odds if he wins. If the golfer fails to win but finishes anywhere in the top 10, you will be paid at 1/5th that golfer’s odds.
For those unfamiliar with each-way bets, they serve as two bets wrapped into one. Half your bet goes toward the outright result and only pays if the golfer wins. The other half of the bet pays out for any top-10 finish at 1/5th the odds.
Example: Let’s say you back Matt Kuchar at 50/1 with a £10 each-way bet. This bet would actually cost £20 in total. £10 of your wager would go on Kuchar at the 50/1 outright payout and only pay if he wins. The other £10 would go on the top-10 finish at odds of 10/1 (because it pays at 1/5th his listed odds).
If Kuchar wins the tournament outright, both halves of the bet would pay out. Half your bet (£10) would result in a £500 profit. The other half would pay at odds of 10/1 for an additional £100 for a total net profit of £600. If Kuchar does not win but finishes somewhere in the top-10, half your bet would be lost. The other half would pay at odds of 10/1.
New Customer Bonus: Bet £5 Get £20 in Free Bets
The standard welcome bonus for all new Coral customers will give you £20 in free bets after you sign up and place a £5 win or each-way bet with your own money at odds of 1/2 or greater. After you place your bet, Coral will give you four individual £5 bets. You must use these bets within 14 days.

- Early Payouts for First Round Leader
- £30 Free Bet
Early Payouts for First Round Leader
Betway have a nice offer that gives you two chances to win when you back an individual golfer. If you make a pre-tournament bet on one golfer to win and your golfer is leading after the first round, Betway will close the bet early and pay you the full price on that golfer.
If your golfer is not leading after the first round, your bet will remain open as normal and pay if he makes a comeback to win the tournament. In other words, you are getting a chance for an early payout on any golfer just for betting with Betway.
The minimum stake is £5 and the maximum is £20. And just to be clear, this offer only pays one time on your golfer. If your golfer is leading after the first round, you get paid right then and your bet is closed. You will not get paid twice if your golfer wins the first round and also wins the tournament.
The other thing to know is this offer automatically applies to your first outright bet of £5 to £20 on the 2017 PGA Championship. You can also place an each-way bet to take advantage of this offer, but only the “win” portion will be counted for early payouts.
New Customer Offer: £30 Free Bet
New customers who sign up for an account at Betway can get a free bet worth up to £30 after depositing £10 or more. This is a 100% match rate offer, which means your free bet is equal in size to your first deposit (up to £30).
As nice as this welcome offer is, it is somewhat limited in two ways. First, it may only be claimed by new customers from Ireland and the UK. Second, the first deposit must be made via credit card, debit card or PayPal to qualify.

Intertops PGA Specials – USA Customers Welcome
- Free Bets for Eagles
- 50% up to $200 for New Customers
Free Bets for Eagles
Intertops.eu has come up with a unique PGA Championship promotion that lets you claim a free bet worth up to $50 on all of your outright picks. If you back a golfer to win outright with at least $10 and that golfer scores an eagle in the first or second round of the tournament but fails to win the tournament, your original stake will be returned as a free bet worth up to $50.
Best of all, this offer is open on multiple picks. If you bet on 3 different golfers to win outright, you stand to win free bets for all of them. The minimum stake to qualify is $10 and the maximum free bet amount is $50 per golfer.
The most important thing to keep in mind here is this promotion requires you to keep track of your golfers. It’s up to you to spot the eagles and then send an e-mail to customer service to claim your free bets. Mention the bonus code PGAEAGLE when you talk to customer support.
50% up to $200 for New Customers
The standard Intertops welcome bonus matches your first deposit at a rate of 50% for up to $200 in extra cash. The bonus and deposit amount must be rolled over 4 times before withdrawal.
Claiming this bonus is a little odd as well. First, sign up for an account and make a deposit as normal. Then, you need to wager your deposit one time. This means if you deposit $200, you need to place $200 worth of bets. After you roll over your deposit once, contact customer support and mention the bonus code ROOKIE50 to get your bonus.
There are also two other options for this bonus. You can instead get 100% up to $100 with the bonus code ROOKIE100 or 200% up to $50 with the bonus code ROOKIE200.
