Golf is a serious game, but oddly enough, many movies made on golf are comedies; comedy classics in fact. So let me tell you first up, if you are looking for an against-all-odds, triumphant, inspirational underdog tales, I wouldn’t recommend most of these movies. But if you’re willing to have an entertaining watch, pick up some popcorn, pick up a copy of these movies, sit back and enjoy. Here is the list of top golf movies ever. Yes, on the list we have golf movies starring familiar faces like Matt Damon, Will Smith and Adam Sandler. You can watch some of these best gold movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
8. A Gentleman’s Game (2002)
‘A Gentleman’s Game’ takes on the private world of country clubs. The movie profoundly captures the life of the other side of golfers. It really shows how the country club atmosphere is really like. With all the behind closed doors look and what really happens to the classic scene where Timmy confronts a member on cheating. The movie really hits a chord. It shows how golf is an exit from the real world and how the country club way of life sometimes isn’t as it cuts up to be. Bottom line this is a movie worth giving a chance.

7. Pat and Mike (1952)
During a friendship that last many years, Tracy and Hepburn made many movies together and this is a good example of the chemistry that existed between them. Directed by George Cukor, Hepburn plays an athlete who comes under the management of a small town sports promoter in Mike Conovan, played by Tracy. The golf game between Pat and Babe Zaharias, a golf pro in real life, translates beautifully to the screen with the crowd moving from green to green, golfers teeing off, putting and shooting into the rough. A good movie, entertaining from start to finish, and a good chance to see Tracy and Hepburn in action.
