Golf is a hugely popular sport, and with players as thrilling as Jason Day and as quirky as Bryson DeChambeau entertaining us in big competitions, it’s easy to see why. But while playing golf can be downright frustrating at times, it’s always enjoyable reading about the beautiful game – whether you’re discovering gorgeous courses or laughing along with other people’s struggles!

If you’re looking for the best golf blogs online or craving the latest golf news, I’ve got you covered today. I’m very much privileged to have the following that I do, but I’m well aware that there are other excellent blogs out there too – and I’ve put together 15 of the very best.

Many of the sites on this list have been around for a while, and some of them are more new. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the list, so if you think there is anyone I should add, please feel free to reply in the comments below. You can also get in touch with Birdieable on Twitter or through the contact form on this site.

Keep in mind these sites aren’t listed in order of preference or rank. It’s just the order I found them, followed them, or remembered to add them! They all have one thing in common, though – they’re well worth your attention. So without further ado…

Here are some of the best golf blogs and websites on the net:

1.) HittingTheGreen

Rob Green is a golf tutor with over 40 years’ experience. He’s been writing for several years, and has been featured in such places as Bleacher Report, CBS, and Golf Channel, so you’re sure to find a lot of good content on his site.

3.) TheGolfGirl

Want a woman’s perspective on golf? This blog is that and more. While it may have started out as one of the only golf blogs edited by a woman, it’s grown into something much larger, and Golf Girl Media now works with a lot of golf players, brands and media.

You absolutely don’t need to be female to enjoy this site, as the quality of the articles is first and foremost what drew me in.

The best bits:

  • Easy to read and covers a wide range of topics
  • Videos on YouTube and Vimeo
  • Approachable news and lifestyle features

You might be familiar with golf broadcaster/writer Stephanie Wei. If not, where have you been? She provides keen insight, and is well known for her unique perspective on golf. This site is where she calls home online, and it’s packed full of useful information.

It’s a great place for all the latest golf news and insights, from the latest pro news to what to wear on the course.

6.) HowToBreak80

Jack Moorehouse might not be a professional golfer, but his site is dedicated to helping you become part of the 5 percent of golfers who ever break 80. Sound good? It does to me too!

This isn’t a site that will tell you to practice day in, day out. Rather it’s a place that you can learn to improve your golf while still holding down a day job. There are a lot of handy tips and “hacks” here that are well worth checking out.

The best bits:

  • Videos for easy learning

The clue is in the name, but this site is actually more than just a golf travel blog. Yes it has information on various courses around the world (as well as the latest news), but it also has features and equipment reviews.

Would somebody enjoy this site if they don’t plan on golf trips overseas? Absolutely, there’s more to it than that, with well-written features and articles that are sure to kill the cravings of any golf fan.

  • Wide-ranging features on every aspect of the sport

 

8.) AmericanGolf

The blog over at American Golf is another top quality blog run by a huge company. American Golf, as you’d expect, has owned and operated a large number of courses throughout the world for over 40 years.

The quality of information on the blog is well worth your time, and the pictures will have you all but boarding a plane to get over to the US to enjoy some golf. But it’s not just course reviews and features you’ll find. They have posts on golf movies, news, and equipment too.

There are a lot of sites on this list with cool names, but this one has got to be the best. This is another blog with useful information, equipment reviews, training drills, and other useful content.

It also has a more simple and straightforward structure, which makes it more accessible than some other more magazine-style sites. Dive in to a host of useful tips, features and some of the best golf articles on the net.

The best bits:

  • Simple, intuitive layout

  • Reviews and features on all aspects of the sport

 

10.) Aussie Golfer

10

This site, which has been going since 2007, is one of those blogs that people read from all around the world. You don’t have to be an Aussie to enjoy it. It has a different voice from the other blogs on this list, and makes for great procrastinating.

News, reviews, videos, and even a “fun” section make this blog worth your time. Be careful, you might end up staying too long!

The best bits:

  • Unique, enjoyable slant on the sport
  • Funny videos and news from across the globe
  • Top-class reviews of all the new equipment

 

11.) GolfDashBlog

John and Doug have created a great site here. It’s primarily dedicated to helping you improve and enhance your game, but it has a history going back to 2005 when it was one of the largest golf sites online.

There’s oodles of useful information here, and a newsletter and ebook allowing you to get even more from the site. It’s well worth checking out, no matter what your skill level.

The best bits:

  • Free ebook to improve your technique

12.) ArmchairGolfBlog

Who says a site needs to be on its own domain to be successful? Neil hosts his site over at Blogspot, and has created a great place to “celebrate the game of golf.”

News, tips, and everything golf can be found here, as well as Neil’s own books, which have racked up some terrific reviews. What are you waiting for? Head on over to take a look!

The best bits:

  • Insight from a celebrated golf author
  • Up-to-date golf news
  • Blog posts written in an easy-to-read style

 

13.) Golf.com

13

When a site like Golf.com has a blog, you know it’s going to be a good idea to pay it a visit. The focus of this particular blog is instructions and lessons, and it even has videos to make things as easy as possible.

Of course, the site as a whole is much more comprehensive than just tips to help you improve at golf. It covers pretty much everything you’d want to know about the game, with industry-leading content and interesting articles every day.

The best bits:

  • Videos to help improve your golf game
  • Tips and tricks from the pros
  • Fantastic equipment reviews and analysis

 

14.) Byron Kalies

14

Byron describes himself as a golf writer, photographer, poker player, golfer, and novelist. Quite the list of skills! And they all combine to make this site one not to miss.

He has written for a number of publications, and certainly has a flair for the art. Over at his blog, you can find a mixture of articles and books, so this isn’t purely a golf blog. Still, there is a lot of golf coverage, and I’m happy to include it in this list.

The best bits:

  • Written with creative flair and artistic style
  • More than just a golf blog
  • Insight into the life of a golfing author

 

15.) Birdieable

Okay, so I cheated a little by adding my own blog to the list, but it’s worth it, I promise! While this might be a fledgling blog at the moment, I like to think that you’ll enjoy the time spent here, and I appreciate that you’ve read it this far.

What do you like best about Birdieable? Is there any way you think I can improve the site? I’d be keen to hear from you.

  8. An intersting post Rob! I’m currently in the throws of building up my own golf blog The UK Golf Course Guide, but as I’m sure you’ll already know there’s a lot of work involved in getting it all together! Hopefully one day I’ll make it on to your list too! For now though thanks for some great links to sites I hadn’t come across before.

    • James, great to hear from you and thanks so much for your comments. Good luck with the site if you want me to feature any content and link it back to your site I would be happy too (subject to it being newsworthy!)

      Good luck with the blog.

  9. Thanks Rob, that would be much appreciated… I’m trying to fit in content creation along side doing my day to day work at the moment, along with getting one or two other items on the blog straightened out, but I’ll definately look to create something newsworthy for you and get in touch as soon as I can.

  10. Great group of blogs Rob. If you haven’t seen our stuff yet, we’d love to have you check out http://www.mttperformance.com/blog

  11. Great post on top golf related blogs. Thanks Birdieable! I’m a Nor Cal designer producing golf-inspired t-shirts after picking the game up in 2009. Admittedly, i like many, have got a lot to learn about golf but i knew i’d have fun both golfing and creating golf-inspired lifestyle t-shirts, since i’ve been designing t-shirts for many prior years.
    Do you have any advice on how to have relevant golf blogs willing to include my brand into cool product reviews? Keep up the good work pal.

    • Vincent, thanks for the feedback much appreciated. I am always on the look out for cool products to promote to my readers, if you wanted too you could write an article about your tees and let me promote it for you (so long as the content is relevant and of high calibre)!

      Good luck with the business…

  12. Hi Rob. Would you be willing to include: https://www.golftrolleyreviews.com/
    It’s a product review website but understand if those aren’t the sort of websites you’re looking to include on your list.
    Many Thanks!

  13. Sorry, am I missing something here? How come no one has mentioned http://www.golfwrx.com/ ??

  20. All the blogs you listed are excellent. But you might consider mine also. It’s called golf course of rhymes and can be found at golfpoet.com. I believe it is the only golf blog exclusively focused on golf poetry. Some of it is mine, much is historical. All of it offered as different way to enjoy the joys, challenges and humor found in the game of golf. The blog has been going for more than nine years and has had visitors from more than 150 countries.

    • Leon, really interesting site yours, I had no idea that you had such a large following for what in effect is a really niche golf blog. Happy to include yours when I update my post. Thanks for reading!

  21. I am really happy to say it’s an interesting post to read . I learn new information from your article , you are doing a great job . Keep it up
