List Criteria: Films about or featuring golfers or tournaments

A list of the best golf movies. This is a list of films that feature golf as a central theme. We're pretty sure we've included all of the best films, but if you believe we missed one please feel free to add it to the list yourself. While "watching golf" may be considered by many to be one of the most boring experiences on earth, movies about golf are often incredibly entertaining. All genres are included on this list, although dramas and comedies tend to be the most popular. Golf is one of the oldest sports in the world, steeped in plenty of tradition, such as its caddies, golf clubs, and the hole in one. No surprise then that Hollywood likes to make use of golf in their films.

You'll find many of these best golf movies on Netflix, so if you spot a title you haven't seen yet, you should check it out! There are many golf movies on Amazon.com too.
