How to watch golf in Australia: PGA Tour, LIV, the majors, Europe and more

From the fairway to the bunker, golf offers some of sport's biggest names and best moments. Where should you tee off?

If you're a fan of golf, you'll know that there is usually a tournament being staged somewhere in the world, so where can you watch it?

The most comprehensive golf broadcaster in Australia is Kayo Sports. All of the Fox Sports channels and 2 ESPN channels are available through Foxtel directly (Foxtel iQ or Foxtel Now) or through standalone streaming service Kayo.

Kayo offers the ability to watch multiple feeds of the same golf tournament (selected tournaments only) or multiple golf tournaments if they're live simultaneously. This is available through SplitView, one of Kayo's many unique viewing features.

So what golf can you watch on Foxtel and Kayo Sports? And which of these services is right for you?

Kayo Sports allows you to stream all golf on the above schedule to a host of devices in high definition. This includes PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Apple TV, PS4, PS5, Telstra TV, Android TV, Chromecast and select smart TVs. We have a guide to help you through the process.

What's great about Kayo Sports is its availability, supplementary content (specials, highlights, talk shows, documentaries) and unique sports viewing features.

For specific events – such as The Masters tournament – Kayo Sports broadcasts 4 different channels of the event, each with a different camera view. You can then use SplitView to watch all of them at once, giving you unparalleled access to the Augusta course from the comfort of your lounge room.

Apart from golf, you also get access to 50 other live sports. There is no lock-in contract and starting at $25 for viewing on 1 screen at a time, it's excellent value. At $35 a month there's the ability to stream on 2 different screens simultaneously. Kayo also introduced 4K in February 2024 to its Basic plan. A 7-day free trial is available for new customers.

There's a full guide to Kayo sports here.

Watch golf on Foxtel

Watching golf on Foxtel can be excellent, but its high price point means it is only a good fit for the very high-end fan.

You must subscribe to the base channel pack before you can access the Sports HD pack in all its glory. That's a cost of $100 a month and potentially a whole bunch of channels you don't need to just watch golf.

The good news is the Foxtel iQ5 set-top box allows you to watch golf in 4K. The golf needs to be broadcast in 4K, and you need to have a 4K TV to see it, but there's no doubt it's glorious to watch. You can also record to the box, giving you control of when you watch those tournaments – like the PGA Tour – that aren't available on-demand.

The Foxtel Go app comes with a Foxtel iQ subscription, which means you can stream golf to your mobile devices as well as watch it on TV for no extra cost. But given that both Kayo and Foxtel show the same live sports, it's hard to justify the extra cost of Foxtel iQ unless it meets your particular needs for 4K or additional non-sporting channels.
