Want to keep up with the latest news and opinions on golf, but fancy a different voice from the mainstream golfing media? Then blogs are a great place to start. Unlike the US, the UK does not have an over-abundance of golf bloggers.
What we lack in quantity, we make up for in quality though, with some great enthusiasts bringing you the latest news and views from fairways and putting greens across the British Isles. Read on to find our list of the top five UK golf bloggers (excluding us, of course!).
Golfblogger is one of the most well-known and well-renowned golfing websites, not just in the UK but throughout the golfing world. Considered a fountain of knowledge, enjoy daily updates on all the top tour players as well as equipment reviews and betting information.
Strictly speaking, Golfhacker is not a blog but a free online magazine sent straight to your inbox. However, this publication fully deserves its place on our list. Not only does it focus on stories other golf magazines and bloggers often ignore, such as ladies (LPGA) golf, it also gives space to emerging talents, instead of just following the sport’s top names.
If you love the PGA Tour, then make sure you check out Golf Monthly Magazine’s Tour Talk blog. It keeps you up to date with all the latest news from across the pond, as well as betting tips. Don’t worry, it doesn’t only focus on the PGA Tour, it includes all other major tournaments too. Regular contributors include Australian golfer Wayne Riley and the most successful European Ryder Cup Captain ever, Tony Jacklin.
As Scotland is the home of golf, it might come as some surprise that there are very few Scottish golf bloggers. The Scottish Golf Podcast and blog is one of the most popular. Hosted by Ru Macdonald, a keen golfer with a handicap of nine, he’s regularly joined by guests from across the golfing world.
Let’s Talk Golf is a golf betting blog. Starting out in 2012 as a general golf blog, it decided to focus almost exclusively on betting in 2015, and in 2016 they brought in a comparison site for golf tipsters. The blog is edited by Ross Starkey, who also advises and researches betting tips for PGA and European Tour Golf. He also is a regular contributor to National Club Golfer, YourCaddy and Women & Golf Magazine.
