Welcome to our The Golf Profiteer review - A golf tipping service that advises bets once per week for upcoming US & European tournaments.

Pros

  • Bets received well in advance of events
  • Past tips results available to download
  • Able to get advised odds

Cons

  • Advised bank too small to handle downturn

In the last update to our review of The Golf Profiteer we had experienced our third losing month in a row, so we decided to take a long term view and come back in a further three months with an update of our results. Unfortunately, things have gone from bad to worse!

The service had a terrible time during month four, losing 64.33 points due to just 2 winning bets out of 70. In month five there was a further loss of 13.18 points, which left us with just 3.25 points from our 150 point starting bank. The final straw was a poor set of results from the French Open, which brought our review to the end of the road.

At the recommended £20 per point we would have lost over £3000 at this stage.

Other than the poor performance of this service, we couldn't find fault with anything else. The tips have been sent out every Wednesday, quoting the current available prices on Betfair. We haven’t struggled to get the advised odds, but it’s possible that better odds could have been achieved by looking at an odds comparison site. Also sometimes the market hasn’t properly formed on Betfair, especially the place markets.

Pricing

There are two subscription options:

  • £2.49 for the 1st month and then £9.95 per month
  • £2.49 for the 1st month and then £19.95 per quarter

Summary

We weren’t expecting every month to be a winning month as Golf betting really needs a long term outlook, however I can’t see why anyone would want to pay for a subscription to a service that has had five out of five losing months. Also the lifetime membership option has since been removed since we started our review.

It's a shame to see The Golf Profiteer go in to the failed box, as we know the service has been around for a number of years now and has had some good reviews in the past after consistently good long-term results. Perhaps with a larger advised starting bank and the lifetime membership option reinstated, it may be worth ploughing on and waiting for those juicy winners to come in. Unfortunately this service is not for us, so a fail it is.


The Golf Profiteer Review: Update Three

3rd May 2016

We’re back with another update to our review of The Golf Profiteer and it’s pretty much the same story as the last two months. There have been 7 winning bets out of 40, but they have all been place bets at shorter odds so we have yet another losing month.

Our 150pt betting bank is now down to 80.76pts, after a further loss of 16.9pts this month. The average odds that we have been betting at since the beginning of the trial are 20.32, so it comes as no surprise that we are experiencing these long losing runs.

We will continue our trial for another 2-3 months to see if the service can deliver the goods in the long term.


The Golf Profiteer Review: Update Two

31st March 2016

We’ve reached the end of month two of our review of The Golf Profiteer and despite hitting a 13/1 winner; it was not enough to finish the month in profit. The service finished the month with a loss of 7.44pts at the advised odds and a slightly less loss of 6.89pts at the odds that we were able to obtain.

This month the service had double the amount of winning bets than the first month of the trial, but 5 out of 6 of them were place bets at lower odds, so we weren’t able to pull back enough profit to get back on track.

Our 150 point starting bank has now dropped down to 97.66pts, however with the high odds associated with golf betting it would only take a few good winners to be in profit. Long losing runs are to be expected.

At the recommended £20 per point, we have now lost a total of £1046.80.

Aside from not making us any money, there have been no problems with the service so far. Tips have been received well ahead of the upcoming tournaments and we have not had too much trouble getting the advised odds. Often the place market has not been completely formed on Betfair so we find it’s best to wait a bit longer and for the most part we have been able to obtain better odds.

We’ll be back next month with our next update – fingers crossed for a big win to get us back on par!


The Golf Profiteer Review: Update One

2nd March 2016

It’s been a tough start for The Golf Profiteer in month one of our review. From 60 bets we have had just 3 wins, which leaves us with a loss of 45.45pts, a 30.3% decrease to our 150pt starting bank. At the advised £20 per point we are now £909.00 down.

The service has sent us bets on a weekly basis, well in time before the start of the tournaments. The advised odds are taken from Betfair, so we have followed suit and recorded our bets using Betfair odds and deducted 5% commission from the results. We’ve been able to get the same odds the majority of the time.

So far we have been receiving tips for three players per tournament, which are to be bet on both the Winner and Top Ten market. The three bets that returned a profit this month were for the Top Ten market at shorter odds and did not do much to recover the mounting losses.

We have to expect these bad runs when betting on golf due to the high odds – so far the odds have ranged from 1.82 all the way up to 290.00.

Hopefully next month the service can hit a few wins at juicy odds to get us back on track.


The Golf Profiteer Review: Introduction

28th January 2016

We have not reviewed a golf tipster service yet, and it seems as though good ones are few and far between. When we came across The Golf Profiteer over at Tipster Street, it seemed the perfect opportunity to put one to the test.

The Golf Profiteer is an established service that has been running since Jan 2013. Tips are sent out once a week on a Wednesday, ready for the weekend tournaments, with an average of 21 selections each month. They cover the PGA Tour, European Tour and occasionally the Asian Tour.

Up to Dec 2015, they have made a profit of +393.92pts, an average of +10.94pts per month. They have achieved a strike rate of 32% and a return on investment of 25.56%. There have been some huge winners so far, including M. Manassero at the BMW PGA Championship at 69/1 and H. Mahan at the Barclays at 47/1.

A betting bank of 150pts is advised, with stakes set between 1pt-6pts. They recommend setting 1pt at £20, but this is down to personal choice. Bets include Outright Winner and Place bets such as Top 10 Finish.

The graph below shows a steady upward trend from the tips and a profit of almost £8000 banked since it launched.

 
Golf Profiteer Graph

The service seems to be reasonably priced – there are three subscription options:

• Monthly – £2.49 for the 1st month and then £9.95 per month
• Quarterly – £2.49 for the 1st month and then £19.95 per quarter
• Lifetime – One off payment of £79.95

We will be reviewing the service until we have had around 100 selections, it may run on a bit longer than our usual reviews due to their being less selections. This could be one of the simplest betting services around if they can hit the mark… wouldn’t it be great to be able to have an extra income stream from betting just once a week!

We’ll be back next month with an update of our results.

Pros

  • Bets received well in advance of events
  • Past tips results available to download
  • Able to get advised odds

Cons

  • Advised bank too small to handle downturn
