Bet Fairway Review: Golf Betting Tipster Service

Bet Fairway is a golf betting service which emails weekly PGA and European tour tips.

The service has been running since early 2013 and has become one of the Bet Kudos network’s most popular betting services, but it’s success goes much further back than this.

They are actually an extension of an offline betting service called “Fairway” which has been running successfully for many years prior to being launched online.

The tips are emailed out throughout the week before 11.00am, starting on a Wednesday with outright selections for PGA and European tours, followed by further tips from Thursday to Sunday for round bets and potential trading out to secure a profit.

As with most Golf betting services, a long term approach is needed as many of the bets are at high odds and there are plenty of losing runs. It’s really a case of holding out for the big wins so you will definitely need to have patience with this type of betting.

A 400 point bank is recommended to protect from the losing streaks and each bet is advised between 1 and 5 point stakes.

The Goat Review: Tennis Tipping Service
We're not sure if The Goat is an acronym or a highly intelligent goat, but this tipster sure knows their tennis, achieving a 6.8% ROI during our review.
Trademate Sports Review: Value Betting Software
We made £17,685 profit in our Trademate Sports review, the web-based software that finds value bets for a variety of sports based on your chosen filters.
The Value Machine Review: Horse Racing Betting Software
At the end of our Value Machine review we achieved two out of three winning months, finishing with a total profit of 43.37 points at an excellent ROI of 19.1%.

Month One Results

Month one ended with a loss of 11.45 points which worked out at a small 2.86% decrease of our 400 point starting bank.

We had no trouble getting the required odds as most of the tips are released days ahead of the start of the tournaments.

Month Two Results

A huge profit in month two after hitting a 66/1 winner with Matt Fitzpatrick winning the DP Tour Championship. This banked us a 114.05 points profit with an ROI of 63.4%.

Each bet was staked at 5 points so our overall profit stood at 102.60 points, but using standard 1 point stake would have made a respectable profit of 20.52 points.

The “Outright” tournament winner bets gave us a profit of 79.13 points and the 2 Ball & 3 Ball bets made a profit of 23.47 points.

Month Three Results

We only had 7 bets during the third month with it being a quiet period for Golf. There was just one win this time but it was in the 3 Ball market, so it wasn’t a huge return. We ended with a loss of 26 points, but we’re still in profit by 76.6 points overall thanks to a cracking result in month two.

We decided to extend the review for a further two months, as Golf betting can be quite high variance and we want to see how the service performs over a longer period.

Month Five Results

After experiencing three losing months in a row, we have decided to call it a day.

The service only managed to deliver a profit in one month, but since then it was downhill all the way. Our 400 point bank had now decreased by 62%, after a total loss of 247.92 points.

Review Summary

Given the performance over our five month review, we cannot recommend subscribing to this service. We were on a slippery slope towards the end and another bad month could have seen our bank completely wiped out. 

The staking plan definitely needs revising, but even if it was, the majority of people would struggle to keep their interest in this service after facing such heavy losses.

We're afraid this one just isn't for us and it's a fail.
