Best Clean Golf Jokes And Funny Golf Stories

Updated on January 9, 2015

The Best Clean Golf Jokes Of All Time

This is a compilation of the best clean golf jokes that I have collected over the years and I hope that they make you laugh as much as they made me laugh when I first read them.

Golf jokes are often passed from golfer to golfer, on the fairway as well as in the clubhouse after a round of golf. I have been collecting jokes since the mid 1990's and have hand picked some of the best golf jokes that I have come across to create this collection.

The game of Golf has spawned a whole collection of great golf jokes, and this lens is a selection of some of the best funny golf jokes to be found. Only the clean golf jokes are to be found here though, but we also have Dirty Golf Jokes if you enjoy those too.

Playing Golf is one of the most popular pastimes, especially in the USA. The Game Of Golf takes a lifetime of practice, you need the right equipment, plenty of time, and not least plenty of money too, as a round of Golf can cost a small fortune these days, especially on a championship Golf course . Like pretty much everything else in this world, there are plenty of jokes about the game of Golf.

Many Golf Jokes are based on women trying to get into what was traditionally a man's game. The word GOLF is said by some to have originally stood for: Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden.

Other Golf Jokes satirically involve various religious figures coming back to earth and playing golf, with some hilarious outcomes. Golf Jokes also involve Priests, Vicars, occasionally Monks and also Nuns. Then once in a while, either a Genie or a Leprechaun pops up in a Golf Joke.

Golf Jokes are never boring, often highly original, and frequently some of the best jokes around.

Golf Jokes - Playing Golf In The Algarve

Something always happens when you play golf on holiday

Two couples went on an Algarve Golf holiday together, and one day the two men went out to play a round, while the girls stayed in the villa.

After a while, Bob's wife begins to get a little worried because her husband has not returned from the golf game.

As the hours pass she becomes more and more concerned until, at 8 p.m., her husband finally staggers up the road.

"What happened?" asked the wife. "You should have been back hours ago!"

"Mike had a heart attack at the third hole," replied the husband.

"Oh, that's terrible," said the wife.

"I know," the husband answered. "All day long it was, hit the ball, drag Mike, hit the ball, drag Mike . . . "

Golf Jokes - Golf Partners

Murphy comes home after his regular Saturday golf game and his wife Fiona asks why he doesn't include Tom O'Brien in the games anymore.

Murphy asks, "Would you want to play with a guy who regularly cheats, swears up a storm over everything, lies about his score, and has nothing good to say about anyone else on the course?"

"Of course I wouldn't," replies Fiona.

"Well," says Murphy, "Neither would Tom O'Brien."

Happy Gilmore

This is one of my all time favorite movies about Golf, and it's also a comedy classic starring Adam Sandler.

Adam is an ice hockey player who can't skate and has anger management problems, but when he finds that he can hit a golf ball a tremendous distance, he is persuaded to try and use this gift to help save his Grandmother's house from being posessed by a property company.

What ensues is absolutely hilarious, and if you love gold and haven't seen this movie, go order the DVD right away. You won't be disappointed.

Golf Bloopers

Golf Jokes - The Twosome

A fellow was getting ready to tee off by himself on the first hole when a tall, stately, grey haired gentleman approached and asked if he could join him.

The first man said that he usually played alone, but agreed to the twosome.

They were even after the first two holes.

The tall, stately gentleman said, We're about evenly matched, how about playing for five bucks a hole?'

The first fellow said he was a pretty good player, and that he wasn't much for betting, but agreed to the terms, thinking we're pretty even so far, so why not?

The stately gentleman played 'straight & true' golf the rest of the round and won the remaining sixteen holes with ease.

As they were walking off the 18th green, and while counting his $80, the tall, stately golfer confessed that he was the teaching pro at a neighboring course and liked to pick on suckers.

The first fellow revealed that he was the parish priest.

The pro got all 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 donation. And, if you want to bring your mother and father along, I'll marry them.'

Golf Jokes - The Lost City

For months the archaeologists had been toiling deep in the Amazon jungle, clearing creepers and rampant, choking undergrowth from faint traces of a Lost City.

Their excitement mounted as the place's extraordinary purpose became evident. Broad winding avenues of giant flagstones had deep, narrow perfectly circular holes every few hundred yards.

It had to be a golf course!

Any doubt was dispelled by the discovery of sculptures and paintings of human figures using primitive prototypes of irons or putters.

The next step was to interrogate local Indian tribesmen about traditions associated with the prehistoric golf club of the Lost City.

It was soon learned that the tribes did have legends of the Old Ones who followed a daily ritual with clubs and balls, until routed by tragedy.

While watching a particularly wrinkled, aged elder chattering to the interpreter,a Professor murmured wistfully, "If only we knew why they gave up golf, making it vanish for centuries before rediscovery".

The interpreter nodded eagerly and relayed the query.

The elder, surprised, made a sweeping gesture at the jungle, and replied.

"Simple", was the translation, "they could not afford the green fees."

Golf Jokes - If I Die

A wife asks her husband, "Honey, if I died, would you re-marry?"

After a considerable period of grieving, I guess I would. We all need companionship."

"If I died and you re-married," the wife asks, "would she live in this house?"

"We've spent a lot of money getting this house just the way we want

it. I'm not going to get rid of my house. I guess she would."

"If I died and you re-married, and she lived in this house," the wife asks, "would she sleep in our bed?"

"Well, the bed is brand new, and it cost us $2,000. It's going to

last a long time, so I guess she would."

"If I died and you re-married, and she lived in this house and slept in our bed, would she use my golf clubs?"

"Oh, no," the husband replies. "She's left-handed."

Golf Jokes - The Scotsman's Caddie

One day, a scotsman went playing golf.

After standing a while on the green he asked the boy standing beside him: "You are my caddie for today?"

"Yes," answered the boy.

"You are good in finding lost balls?"

"Oh yes, I find every lost ball!"

"Okay, boy, then run and search for one, then we can start!"

Funny Golf Movies: Tin Cup

Tin Cup
Tin Cup

Tin Cup is a cute romantic comedy starring Kevin Costner and Rene Russo. Kevin plays a failed pro-golfer who now runs a run down driving range in a small town in Texas.

Kevin falls for his new pupil (Rene) who is a psychiatrist as well as the ex-girlfriend of his ex golf partner, who has meantime become a star in the PGA world and who seeks revenge on his old friend.

The resulting plot turns into a complicated and hilarious farce, with cameo appearances by Don Johnson and Cheech Marin.

Tin Cup is one of the classic golf comedies, and if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.


Golf Jokes - What Can I Do?

Fred was playing off the sixth tee. The fairway of the sixth needed some skill because it ran alongside the road. But Fred sliced the ball badly and it disappeared over the hedge bordering the road.

So he put another ball down and took the penalty.

He was having a beer after the game when the pro joined him in the bar. "Excuse me Fred, but was it you who sliced this ball into the road at the sixth this morning?"

"Yes, but I took the penalty."

"That's as may be. But you might be interested to know that your ball hit and killed a small boy on a tricycle; the tricycle fell in the path of a Police Officer on a motorcycle. He skidded and was thrown through the window of a car, killing the nun at the wheel. The car then swerved into a cement mixer which wasn't too damaged but had to veer slightly and in doing so ran into the local school bus with such an impact that it sent it flying through the window of the shopping centre. At last count from the hospital there are thirteen people dead and seventy-nine people seriously injured."

The golfer turned a deathly shade of white and said, "What can I do?"

"Well, you could try moving your left hand a little bit further down the shaft," the pro advised.

Golf Trick Shot

Golf Jokes - My Wife Left Me

Fred called his friend in tears.

Golf Jokes - Green Golf Balls

Tommy and Ray were approaching the first tee.

Ray goes into his golf bag to get a ball and says to his friend, "Hey, why don't you try this ball."

He draws a green golf ball out of his bag and says "You can't lose it."

Tommy replies, "What do you mean you can't lose it?"

Ray replies, "I'm serious, you can't lose it. If you hit it into the woods, it makes a beeping sound. If you hit it into the water it produces bubbles, and if you hit it on the fairway, smoke comes up in order for you to find it."

Obviously, Tommy doesn't believe him, but Ray shows him all the possibilities until he is convinced.

Tommy says, "Wow! That's incredible! Where did you get that ball!"

Ray replies, "I found it."

For six holes she tramped after him.

It was on the seventh that he landed in the infamous bunker where he floundered about for some time in the sand.

She sat herself down composedly and, as the sand began to fly she happily ventured:

"There, I knew you could just as well play in one place if you made up your mind to!"

Golf Jokes - A Hole Behind

A man went to a strange town to be the guest speaker at a business meeting.

When he arrived at his Motel, he found he had a lot of time before the meeting so he got the directions for a nearby golf course from the clerk.

While playing on the front nine, he thought over his impending speech and became confused as to where he was on the course.

Looking around, he saw a lady playing ahead of him.

He walked up to her, explained the situation and asked her if she knew what hole he was playing.

She replied, "I'm on the 7th hole and you are a hole behind me, so you must be on the 6th hole."

He thanked her and went back to his golf.

On the back nine the same thing happened and he approached her again with the same request.

She said, "I'm on the 14th, you are a hole behind me, so you must be on the 13th."

Once again he thanked her and returned to his play.

He finished his round and went into the club house where he saw the lady sitting at the end of the bar.

He asked the bartender if he knew the lady.

The bartender said that she was a sales lady and played the course often.

He approached her and said, "Let me buy you a drink in appreciation for your help. I understand you are in the sales profession. I'm in sales also. What do you sell?"

She replied, "If I told you, you would only laugh."

"No I wouldn't."

"Well if you must know", she answered, "I sell sanitary towels."

She said, "See I knew you would laugh."

"That's not what I'm laughing at" he replied, "I'm a toilet paper salesman, so I'm still a hole behind you!"

Once again the bum replies "No, I don't play golf"

Will you go to a dance?

No I don't dance either.

Then the man asks, "Will you come home with me so my wife can see what happens to a man who doesn't drink, gamble, play golf or dance.

Father Murphy was playing golf with a parishioner.

On the first hole, he sliced into the rough.

His opponent heard him mutter "Hoover !" under his breath.

On the second hole, Father Murphy's ball went straight into a water hazard.

"Hoover!" again a little louder this time.

On the third hole, a miracle occured and Father Murphy's drive landed on the green only six inches from the hole !

"Praise be to God !"

He carefully lined up the putt, but the ball curved around the hole instead of going in. "HOOVER ! ! !"

By this time, his opponent couldn't withhold his curiosity any longer, and asked why the priest said "Hoover".

"It's the biggest dam I know."

Golf Idiots

Golf Jokes - Trees

I think that I shall never see
a hazard rougher than a tree;

A tree o'er which my ball must fly
if on the green it is to lie.

A tree which stands that green to guard,
and makes the shot extremely hard;

A tree whose leafy arms extend
to kill the six iron shot I send.

A tree that stands in silence there,
while angry golfers rave and swear.

Irons were made for fools like me
who cannot ever miss a tree.

Golf Jokes - The Perfect Shot

A guy stood over his tee shot for what seemed an eternity; looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, figuring the wind direction and speed and driving his partner nuts.

Finally his exasperated partner says, "What's taking so long? Hit the blasted ball."

The guy answers, "My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse. I want to make this a perfect shot."

"Forget it, you don't stand a chance of hitting her from here."

Golf Jokes - Geriatric Golf

"How was your golf game, dear?" asked Jack's wife Tracy.

"Well, I was hitting pretty well, but my eyesight's gotten so bad I couldn't see where the ball went."

"But you're seventy-five years old, Jack!" admonished his wife, "Why don't you take my brother Scott along?"

"But he's eighty-five and doesn't even play golf anymore," protested Jack.

"But he's got perfect eyesight. He could watch your ball," Tracy pointed out.

The next day Jack teed off with Scott looking on.

Jack swung, and the ball disappeared down the middle of the fairway. "Do you see it?" asked Jack.

"Yup," Scott answered.

"Well, where is it?" yelled Jack, peering off into the distance.

"I forgot."

Golf Jokes - The Golf Match

Stevie Wonder and Tiger Woods are in a bar.

Woods turns to Wonder and says: How is the singing career going?"

Stevie Wonder replies: "Not too bad! How's the golf?"

Woods replies: "Not too bad, I've had some problems with my swing, but I think I've got that right now."

Stevie Wonder says: "I always find that when my swing goes wrong, I need to stop playing for a while and not think about it. Then, the next time I play, it seems to be all right.

Tiger Woods says: "You play golf?"

Stevie Wonder says: "Oh, yes, I've been playing for years."

And Woods says: "But, you're blind. How can you play golf if you're blind?"

Wonder replies: "I get my caddy to stand in the middle of the fairway and call to me. I listen for the sound of his voice and play the ball towards him. Then, when I get to where the ball lands, the caddy moves to the green or farther down the fairway and again I play the ball towards his voice."

"But, how do you putt?", asks Woods.

"Well," says Stevie, "I get my caddy to lean down in front of the hole and call to me with his head on the ground and I just play the ball towards his voice."

Woods asks: "What's your handicap?"

Stevie says, "Well, I'm a scratch golfer."

Woods, incredulous, says to Stevie: "We've got to play a round sometime."

Wonder replies: "Well, people don't take me seriously, so I only play for money, and never play for less than $10,000 a hole."

Woods thinks about it and says, "OK, I'm game for that, when would you like to play?"

Stevie says, "Pick a night!"

A Golf GPS Makes A Great Gift

Golf Jokes - Pregnant Golf

The room was full of pregnant women and their partners, and the Lamaze class was in full swing.

The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe properly, along with informing the men how to give the necessary assurances at this stage of the plan.

Golf Jokes - Swearing

A nun is sitting with her Mother Superior chatting.

"Is that when you swore?"

"No, Mother," says the nun. "After that, a squirrel ran out of the bushes and grabbed my ball in its mouth and began to run away."

"Is THAT when you swore?" asks the Mother Superior again.

"Well, no. says the nun. You see, as the squirrel was running, an eagle came down out of the sky, grabbed the squirrel in his talons and began to fly away!"

"Is THAT when you swore?" asks the amazed elder nun.

"No, not yet. As the eagle carried the squirrel away in its claws" , it flew near the green and the squirrel dropped my ball."

"Did you swear THEN?" asked Mother Superior, becoming impatient.

"No, because the ball fell on a big rock, bounced over the sandtrap, rolled onto the green, and stopped about six inches from the hole."

The two nuns were silent for a moment.

Then Mother Superior sighed and said, "You missed the f---ing putt, didn't you?"

Golf Jokes - Cow Tail

A foursome was playing the last hole and when the last golfer drove off the tee he hooked into a cow pasture.

He advised his friends to play through and he would meet them at the clubhouse. They followed the plan and waited for their friend.

After a considerable time he appeared disheveled, bloody, and badly beaten up. They all wanted to know what happened.

He explained that he went over to the cow pasture but could not find his ball. He noticed a cow wringing her tail in obvious pain. He went over and lifted her tail and saw a golf ball solidly embedded. It was a yellow ball so he knew it was not his.

A woman comes out of the bushes apparently searching for her lost golf ball. The helpful male golfer lifted the cow's tail and asked, "Does this look like yours?"

Sometimes people ask me "Where did you get these jokes?", and with copyright and plagiarism being rife on the internet these days I honestly can't say that I came up with them, although I did re-write some in the process of creating this page.

I have run a jokes and humor mailing list since the late 1990's, and most of the jokes that I use on my lenses have been circulating via email for years, and via word of mouth and other means for donkeys years before that. Some I even heard when I was a boy, and I bet they weren't new then either.

In most cases nobody knows who started a joke, or who has any ownership of a funny story. If I have used something that you know to be copyrighted, please let me know, and I will be pleased to credit it appropriately or to remove it if that is preferred.
