British Open Golf Championship: Choice of Great Offers from around the Sportsbooks

It’s golf’s third Major of the year but for most players on the circuit this is the one they really want to win. The Open Championship returns to Royal Birkdale for the first time since 2008 and the strongest field so far in 2017 will be competing for the Claret Jug.


It’s tight at the top of the leaderboard with three players listed as joint favourites so, if you’re struggling to pick a winner, it could be a good idea to look around the top UK bookmakers and consider some of these promotions.

William Hill


Golf is an important sport for Hills and this could be a useful offer for anyone looking to bet in the outright markets for this week. The promo is called Missed Cut Money Back and, as that name suggests, it promises to refund losing bets in that outright market if your chosen player misses the cut.

New William Hill online customers only. Min. unit stake of £10/€10 at odds of 1/2 or greater. Only the “win” part from EW bets will count. Free bet terms, payment method & country restrictions apply. Free bets credited as 3 x £10/€10. Free bet stakes are not returned as part of the settlement of successful free bets. All Free Bets must be wagered within 30 days.

The promotion from 888Sport works in exactly the same way as the offer from William Hill. However, this has a low entry point of £1.00 and a slightly higher upper limit of £25.00 if your selection in the outright betting fails to make the cut in this year’s Open Championship.

Your free bet token has a slightly longer shelf life too and this will expire after 7 days.

Ladbrokes also provide a free bet deal but this time all you have to do is stake in that outright market. Make a £20.00 single or £20.00 Each Way bet in the outrights and you will receive 2 x £5.00 freebies.

These free bet tokens can then be staked as follows: One on Thursday and one on the Friday of the tournament.

A number of operators have increased their each way options this week but few, if any will be as generous as SkyBet. For the Open Championship of 2017, this operator is paying all the way down to ten places so your chosen player can squeeze into the top ten and you can still claim a payout.

At 1/5 of the odds, this is a promo that has to be considered if you’re not sure about making a selection in the straight win market.


One of the most frustrating areas of golf betting comes along when your pick leads after the first round but fades away badly and finishes way down the board. With Betway, you have the chance of addressing that however as they will pay out in the outright markets for the Open Championship if your selection is at the top of that leaderboard after the first 18 holes.

This is an offer for new customers only so the first step is to sign up via the link and open a Betway account with a few basic details. Make a deposit into that account and pick a player from the outrights for the 2017 Open Championship before staking between £5.00 and £20.00 against their name.

If your pick is ahead at the end of the first round then Betway will pay out but if they aren’t, the bet will still carry over for the remainder of the tournament.


While the Open runs its course this week, you could also look at some of the generic offers that could be used for any European Tour golf tournament. These include the deal from who have a money back promo for losers in play offs on both main tours.

Elsewhere, there are acca insurance deals from the likes of William Hill that could all be tied to the big event this week. Expect more promos to follow as the first tee time approaches but here are some great deals to start your Open betting for 2017 so check all terms and conditions and get involved.
