Golf Jokes

I've seen so many golf jokes over the years that I finally decided to just dedicate a page to them. They probably won't make you start rolling on the floor but most will at least get you to smile.

Now here's the good thing. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A GOLFER TO ENJOY THESE. Granted, you may have to know a little bit about the game but you should still enjoy them even if you're not out on the course every chance you get.

And if you are a golfer, then you may have heard some of the golf jokes before. After all, when you spend 3 or 4 hours walking around a course with your pals and a few hours after the game having a drink or two with them, a joke or two might get shared!

However, new golf jokes do appear once in a while and when they do, I'll add them to this page and if you're on my RSS list, then you'll automatically receive them when I get them. (Be the first in your foresome to relate the latest chuckle.)

So, here they are.

Enjoy them.




If you find you do not mind playing golf in the rain, the snow, or even during a hurricane, here's a valuable tip...your life is in trouble!

Why I Mow My Lawn By Lee Trevino - A True Story

One day, shortly after joining the PGA tour in 1965, Lee Trevino, a professional golfer and married man, was at his home in Dallas, Texas, mowing his front lawn, as he always did. 
A lady driving by in a big, shiny Cadillac stopped in front of his house, lowered the window and asked, "Excuse me, do you speak English?" 
Lee responded, "Yes Ma'am, I do." 
The lady then asked, "What do you charge to do yard work?" 
Lee said, "Well, the lady in this house lets me sleep with her." 
The lady hurriedly put the car into gear and sped off!

The Proper Way To Call Someone A Bastard!

A guy was getting ready to tee off on the first hole when a second golfer approached and asked if he could join him. The first said that he  usually played alone, but agreed to the twosome. They were even after the first few holes. The second guy said, "We're about evenly matched, how about playing for five bucks a hole?" The first guy said that he wasn't much for betting, but agreed to the terms.

The second guy won the remaining sixteen holes with ease.

As they were walking off number eighteen, the second guy was busy counting his $80.00. He confessed that he was the pro at a neighboring course and liked to pick on suckers. The first fellow revealed that he was the Parish Priest.

The pro was flustered and apologetic, offering to return the money. The  Priest said, "You won fair and square and I was foolish to bet with you.  You keep your winnings."

The pro said, "Is there anything I can do to make it up to you?"

The Priest said, "Well, you could come to Mass on Sunday and make a donation...and, if you want to bring your mother and father along, I'll marry them!"

Marriage And Golf

After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came for counselling.
When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married.
On and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured.
Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and after asking the wife to stand, he embraced and kissed her long and passionately as her husband watched with a raised eyebrow.
The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.
The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs atleast 3 times a week. Can you do this?"
"Well,I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I Golf".

One-liner Golf Jokes

1) Golf can best be defined as an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle, followed by a good bottle of beer.
2) Golf! You hit down to make the ball go up. You swing left and the ball goes right. The lowest score wins. (And on top of that, the winner buys the drinks!)
3) Golf is harder than baseball. In golf, you have to play your foul balls.
4) If you find you do not mind playing golf in the rain, the snow, even during a hurricane, here's a valuable tip: your life is in trouble.
5) Golfers who try to make everything perfect before taking the shot rarely make a perfect shot.
6) The term 'mulligan' is really a contraction of the phrase 'maul it again.'
7) A 'gimme' can best be defined as an agreement between two golfers...neither of whom can putt very well.
8) An interesting thing about golf is that no matter how badly you play; it is always possible to get worse.
9) Golf's a hard game to figure. One day you'll go out and slice it and shank it, hit into all the traps and miss every green. The next day you go out and for no reason at all you really stink.
10) If your best shots are the practice swing and the 'gimme putt', you might wish to reconsider this game.
11) Golf is the only sport where the most feared opponent is you.
12) Golf is like marriage: If you take yourself too seriously it won't work, and both are expensive.
13) The best wood in most amateurs' bags is the pencil.

Golf Quotes

(I don't know where these came from but they're food for thought.)
"That ball is so far left, Lassie couldn't find it if it was wrapped in bacon."

A Golf Jokes Love Story

Ed and Nancy met while on a singles cruise and Ed fell head over heels for her.
When they discovered they lived in the same city only a few miles apart Ed was ecstatic. He immediately started asking her out when they got home.
Within a couple of weeks, Ed had taken Nancy to dance clubs, restaurants, concerts, movies, and museums. Ed became convinced that Nancy was indeed his soul mate and true love. Every date seemed better than the last.
On the one-month anniversary of their first dinner on the cruise ship, Ed took Nancy to a fine restaurant. While having cocktails and waiting for their salad, Ed said, "I guess you can tell I'm very much in love with you. I'd like a little serious talk before our relationship continues to the next stage.
So, before I get a box out of my jacket and ask you a life changing question, it's only fair to warn you, I'm a total golf nut. I play golf, I read about golf, I watch golf on TV. In short, I eat, sleep, and breathe golf. If that's going to be a problem for us, you'd better say so now!"
Nancy took a deep breath and responded, "Ed, that certainly won't be a problem. I love you as you are and I love golf too; but, since we're being totally honest with each other, you need to know that for the last five years I've been a hooker."
"Oh wow! I see," Ed replied. He looked down at the table, was quiet for a moment. Deep in serious thought then he added,"You know, it's probably because you're not keeping your wrists straight when you hit the ball!"
(And they say love is blind!)

The Wife's Heart Attack

A husband and wife are on the 9th green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack!
"Help me dear," she groans to her husband.
The husband calls 911 on his cell phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter and lines up his putt.
His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him.
"I'm dying here and you're putting?"
"Don't worry dear," says the husband calmly, "they found a doctor on the second hole and he's coming to help you."
"Well, how long will it take for him to get here?" she asks feebly.
"No time at all," says her husband. "Everybody's already agreed to let him play through." 

New Senior's Golf Rules

Rule  1.a.5 
A ball sliced or hooked into the Rough shall be lifted and placed on the Fairway at a point equal to the distance it carried or rolled into the Rough with no penalty. The senior player should not be penalized for tall grass which ground keepers failed to mow.

Rule 2.d.6
A ball hitting a tree shall be deemed NOT to have hit the tree. This is simply bad luck and luck has no place in a scientific game. The senior player must estimate the distance the ball would have traveled if it had not hit the tree, and play the ball from there.
Rule  3.B.3
There shall be no such thing as a lost  ball. The missing ball is on or near the course, and will eventually be found and pocketed by someone else, thereby making it a stolen ball. The senior player is not to compound the felony by charging himself with a penalty. 

Rule  4.C.7
If a putt passes over a hole without dropping, it is deemed to have dropped. The Law of Gravity supersedes the Rules of Golf.
Rule  5.
Putts that stop close enough to the cup that they could be blown in, may be blown in. This does however not apply to balls more than three inches from the Hole. No one  wants to make a mockery of the game!
Rule  6.a.9
There is no penalty for so-called "out of bounds." If penny-pinching golf course owners bought sufficient land, this would not occur.  The senior player deserves an apology, not a penalty.

Rule  7..G.15
There is no penalty for a ball in a water hazard, as golf balls should float. Senior players should not be penalized for any shortcomings of the manufacturers.

Rule 8.K.9
Advertisements claim that golf scores can be improved by purchasing new golf equipment. Since this is financially impractical for many senior players, one-half stroke per hole may be subtracted for using old equipment.

Please advise all your senior friends of these important rule changes and keep multiple copies in your golf bag. Those not following the rules need to be provided a copy. Golf is a game of integrity.

Golf Balls And Buttercups

Trying to get his ball back in play, he ended up thrashing just about every buttercup in the patch. All of a sudden...POOF!! In a flash and puff of smoke, a little old woman appeared.
She said, "I'm Mother Nature! Do you know how long it took me to make those buttercups?
Just for doing what you have done, you won't have any butter for your popcorn for the rest of your life. Better still, you won't have any butter for your toast for the rest of your life. As a matter of fact, you'll never have any butter for anything for the rest of your life!" Then POOF!...she was gone!
After Dave recovered from the shock, he hollered for his friend, "Fred, where are you?"
Fred yells back, "I'm over here in the pussy willows."
Dave shouts back, "DON'T SWING, Fred! For the love of God, DON'T SWING!


Police are called to an apartment and find a woman holding a bloody 5-iron standing over a lifeless man.
The detective asks, "Ma'am, is that your husband?"
"Yes" says the woman.
"Did you hit him with that golf club?"
"Yes, yes, I did." The woman begins to sob, drops the club, and puts her hands on her face.
"How many times did you hit him?"
"I don't know -- five, six, maybe seven times.....just put me down for a five!" 

This Golfer Has No Enemies

Toward the end of the Sunday service, the Minister asked, "How many of you have forgiven your enemies?"
80% held up their hands.
The Minister then repeated his question. All responded this time, except one man, an avid golfer named Walter Barnes, who attended church only when the weather was bad.
"Mr. Barnes, it's obviously not a good morning for golf. It's good to see you here today. Are you not willing to forgive your enemies?"
"I don't have any," he replied gruffly.
"Mr. Barnes, that is very unusual. How old are you?"
"Ninety-eight," he replied.
The congregation stood up and clapped their hands.
"Oh, Mr. Barnes, would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?"
The old golfer tottered down the aisle, stopped in front of the pulpit, turned around, faced the congregation, and said simply, "I outlived all the sons of bitches." 

The "What If" Golf Story

What if you were playing in the club championship tournament finals and the match was halved at the end of 17 holes.
You had the honor and hit your ball a modest two hundred fifty yards to the middle of the fairway, leaving a simple six iron to the pin.
Your opponent then hits his ball, lofting it deep into the woods to the right of the fairway.
Being the golfing gentleman that you are, you help your opponent look for his ball.
Just before the permitted five minute search period ends, your opponent says: "Go ahead and hit your second shot and if I don't find it in time, I'll concede the match."
You hit your ball, landing it on the green, stopping about ten feet from the pin.
About the time your ball comes to rest, you hear your opponent exclaim from deep in the woods: "I found it!". The second sound you hear is a click, the sound of a club striking a ball and the ball comes sailing out of the woods and lands on the green, stopping no more than six inches from the hole.
Now the real "what if" in this story...
What if you had your opponent's ball in your pocket?

The Dentist

Andy and his wife walked into a dentist's office.
Andy said to the dentist, "Doc, I'm in one heck of a hurry I have three buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf, so forget about the anesthetic, I don't have time for the gums to get numb. I just want you to pull the tooth, and be done with it!
The dentist thought to himself, "My goodness, this is surely a very brave man asking to have a tooth pulled without using anything to kill the pain." So the dentist asks him, "Which tooth is it, sir?"
Andy turned to his wife Patricia and said, "Honey, open your mouth and show him"!


Don't buy a putter until you've had a chance to throw it. 

Never try to keep more than 300 separate thoughts in your mind during your swing. 

When your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can either hit one more club or two more balls. 

If you're afraid a full shot might reach the green while the foursome ahead of you is still putting out, you have two options: you can immediately shank a lay-up or you can wait until the green is clear and top a ball halfway there.

The less skilled the player, the more likely he is to share his ideas about the golf swing. 

No matter how bad you are playing, it is always possible to play worse. 

The inevitable result of any golf lesson is the instant elimination of the one critical unconscious motion that allowed you to compensate for all of your many other errors.  

Everyone replaces his divot after a perfect approach shot. 

A golf match is a test of your skill against your opponents' luck. 

It is surprisingly easy to hole a fifty foot putt...for a 10. 

Counting on your opponent to inform you when he breaks a rule is like expecting him to make fun of his own haircut.

The shortest distance between any two points on a golf course is a straight line that passes directly through the center of a very large tree. 

You can hit a two acre fairway 10% of the time and a two inch branch 90% of the time.

If you really want to get better at golf, go back and take it up at a much earlier age!

Since bad shots come in groups of three, a fourth bad shot is actually the beginning of the next group of three.  

When you look up, causing an awful shot, you will always look down again at exactly the moment when you ought to start watching the ball if you ever want to see it again. 

Every time a golfer makes a birdie, he must subsequently make two triple bogeys to restore the fundamental equilibrium of the universe. 

If you want to hit a 7 iron as far as Tiger Woods does, simply try to lay up just short of a water hazard.  

To calculate the speed of a player's downswing, multiply the speed of his back-swing by his handicap; I.e., back-swing 20 mph, handicap 15, downswing = 300 mph. 

There are two things you can learn by stopping your back-swing at the top and checking the position of your hands:  how many hands you have, and which one is wearing the glove. 

Hazards attract; fairways repel. 

A ball you can see in the rough from 50 yards away is not yours. 

If there is a ball on the fringe and a ball in the bunker, your ball is in the bunker. If both balls are in the bunker, yours is in the footprint.

A good drive on the 18th hole has stopped many a golfer from giving up the game. 

A good golf partner is one who's always slightly worse than you are...that's why I get so many calls to play with friends. 

If there's a storm rolling in, you'll be having the game of your life. 

If your opponent has trouble remembering whether he shot a six or a seven, he probably shot an eight (or worse).  

Well, there you have them, I'll add more golf jokes as I get them (if I think they are really funny).
