If you’re an athlete who didn’t grow up playing golf, you know that it can be one of the most frustrating sports in the world.
At the same time, when a golfing goes bad, it can be downright hilarious. Lots can go wrong when you combine a lack of skill, a solid projectile, a bit of alcohol, and/or a motorized vehicle.
Since few of us will ever attain PGA tour status, the best you can do is see the humor in the game, and that’s where these funny golf videos come in.
A few disclaimers:
- There’s colorful language in some of this golf content
- For your own safety: do not attempt to recreate any of these bad decisions
- We tried to give credit where credit is due, but let us know if we missed someone
I promise at least one of these funny golf videos will make you laugh, so let’s get the humor train rolling!

Not sure what this dude was thinking when he oriented the swing net directly across from the picture window, but you can probably guess how this played out.

An aspiring young golfer. A harmless backyard swing. What could go wrong?

#7 – From Bad to Worse
Hitting a golf ball into a pond is one thing – driving your golf cart into a water hazard is another. What a disaster!
Side note: did you see the pond scum on that guy’s leg?
#8 – What Was He Thinking?
Let’s review the situation here.
- Ball is teed up maybe a foot or two from a concrete wall
- Driver shots have a lower trajectory
- Car is parked directly behind poorly-selected tee area
And we’re off!
#9 – You Just Lost Your Summer Job
To the driver of this golf cart: If you hope to work at a golf course anytime in the future, make sure this video disappears from the internet.

#10 – Can’t Recreate This Golf Swing
