Golf Value Tips Review: Golf Betting Tips Service

Golf Value Tips is a golf betting tips service from Bets For Today that targets each-way value bets on the Outright Winner markets.

The service is run by Mike Hamilton, who has been making a profit from golf betting since 2017 and running his tips service since March 2023, with results starting from October 2022.

His results to date show £1,173.25 profit at a 52.68% return on investment based on his advised staking plan. The staking is based on Kelly Criterion and there are three options for starting banks depending on the level of risk you're comfortable with.

Mike's average stake according to his results sheet at the time of writing is £19.03, so the staking plan isn't overly aggressive even with the minimum starting bank of 100 points, which is £1,000 in this case.

Bets are sent out between 2.00 - 4.00pm every Wednesday by email or through the website and there are an average of 17 bets per month, so it's a low volume and easy to manage.

We followed the service for four months and they produced a fantastic set of results, almost doubling our bank in a short space of time. It was easy to hand out a "Pass" rating to this top class golf betting service.

Month One Update

It was a tough start to our Golf Value Tips review with 30 points dropped in the first week. Thankfully the tipster managed to pull some profit back with some high odds selections placing to give a few nice returns.

Charl Schwartzel placing at 150/1 resulted in 14.5 points profit alone, which recovered a big chunk of what was lost.

We still finished the month with an overall loss of 11.03 points and after such a rocky start, we had no idea which way it would go from here.

Month Two Update

Golf Value Tips hit the jackpot in month two of our review with three huge winners at 140/1, 70/1 and 60/1.

We finished the month with a massive 105.77 points profit, which means that we had almost doubled our bank with the two months that we had been following the service.

It was turning out to be quite the rollercoaster!

Month Three Update

We came back to Earth with a thump in month three of our Golf Value Tips review, with a loss of 43.53 points. Thanks to an amazing set of results in month two, our bank had grown by 51.2% overall, so we were still in a very good position.

Golf betting can be very turbulent, so we planned to run our review for a bit longer to get a bigger picture.

There was a swift recovery in the fourth month of our Golf Value Tips review and we regained all that we had lost in month three. The service delivered 43.65 points profit, thanks to a very nice 80/1 tournament winner bet coming in.

Review Summary

  • Involves betting on high odds selections
  • Tips delivered once per week
  • Easy to follow

We tracked bets from the Golf Value Tips service for four months and finished with an amazing 94.87 points profit at an ROI of 28.7%. We were very close to doubling our bank after a cracking performance from the tipster.

It can be a bit turbulent betting at high odds, and we did experience that first-hand in our review, with some long spells of losing bets at times. We needed to be patient and it certainly paid off with a huge profit banked.

To get the most out of the service, it was important to follow their advice on which bookmakers paid more places. This information was sent with each bet and made a huge difference. 

For example, in some cases we were able to find bookmakers that were paying out on 10 places where others were only offering 8, so it's definitely worth doing that.

One thing that we would point out is that the 100 point advised bank seems too low, so we would recommend using a larger bank of perhaps 150 - 200 points to be safe.

Golf Value Tips is a straight-forward golf betting service and we found it easy to follow. They achieved some fantastic results during our four month review and we were happy to give them a "Pass" rating.
