$25 Billion Niche & Growing Globally (And It's Filled With Rich People Who Love To Throw Money Around Too!)

Filed in Niche Market Ideas by on June 20, 2014

golf niche is profitable

As always I evaluate a hot niche market and 'hack' it wide open so you can make money from it.

This niche is worth $25 Billion and growing (according to Bloomberg) thanks to a new found popularity around the world.

It's a niche where people spend a lot of money regularly because they are passionate about it and want to improve to impress their buddies.

It would be considered a middle to upper class activity which means a lot of money floating around.

The niche in question is golf!




Let's look at the demand...

Google Search Volume


Those are HUGE search volumes showing just how popular this niche is.

And that's just 4 obvious keywords there are thousands more with high volume and tons of juicy buyer keywords.


Reasons to get involved in this profitable niche...

It's an evergreen and growing market where people have money to spend and love to spend it.

It's not cheap to buy the clubs, the bags, the shoes and all the other accessories required and that doesn't even include the golf club fees and other associated costs.

You can promote all of this and more (i.e. digital products and how to guides)

These people have money to spend and they always want to improve so they can beat their buddies and show off which means buying more stuff = tons of repeat sales for you.

This niche is pretty much recession proof if you get involved.

With over $25BN spent a year if you could capture just 0.01% of the market you'd be laughing all the way to the bank.

There's over 680,000 products available on Amazon alone most priced over $50 and going up to $5,000 even so your commission cheques will be sizable.

Clickbank has 234 digital products on golf available in their market place most priced over $30 with 75% commission which means nice commission payouts for you.

Over 6 million people have liked golf on Facebook which means there's a huge social media presence making it EASY to find your target audience online and promote your golf site to them.

  1. Discover This 'Old' Yet Growing $24.8 Billion Niche : NicheHacks | July 3, 2014
  1. Shalu Sharma says:

    I agree completely with you about golf. Its huge and also people are passionate about it. Its one of those sports where there is plenty of products and people are looking to improve their skills hence no shortage of info products either. In addition, there is always something one can write on golf.

    • NicheHacks says:

      Yeah it's HUGE! Lots of money in the market. Lots of topics to cover too like you say.

      Are you in this niche or thinking about it?

  2. hassan says:

    well i have bookmarked your website and i visit it frequently. I want to say that golf is a sport and maybe a lot of people have already made sites about it.
    i can create like 15,000 words content in a week about any niche but what is the guarantee that it will be profitable.

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Hassan, glad you like the site. Appreciate you coming back.

      Yes golf is a sport, everyone knows that, and sports (a hobby and a passion) make GREAT niches because the people who play these sports are so passionate about them and willing to spend money.

      Sure a lot of people have made sites on it. A lot of people have made sites on just about every subject worth covering which is a small sign that it's a niche worth being in.

      There's usually not much value in creating sites on topics no one knows or cares about.

      Competition is a GREAT thing. It shows there's a healthy market, a demand, lots of products on sales, advertisers, affiliates, people to network with etc.

      There's not guarantee ANYTHING will be profitable and if you're looking for someone to guarantee you 'X' niche will make you money you will NOT find that here.

      I'd be very wary of anyone guaranteeing you anything especially when it comes to making a profit. That CANNOT be guaranteed.

      Whether you succeed is wholly up to you. Is golf a profitable niche? YES 100%! Will it be profitable for you? Maybe yes. Maybe no. Depends on 100s of factors not limited to what you do and don't do.

      Being able to crank out 15k of content means nothing if no one likes your content and you don't get your target audiences eyes on it.

      You have to evaluate the niche and work out if YOU personally can make it work. No one can tell you if that's the case or not.

      Any further questions please ask and I'm happy to answer.

      Best of luck.

    Hi... Is a great niche indeed... Very high potential, lots of money in it but I didn't see anything to be mentioned about the competition in this niche... Unless you target some specific words which have not by far the number of searches shown in the description you don't stand a chance in this 25bn niche... A bit more accurate info from this point of view would be helpful for every subscribers from your blog... Otherwise good information...

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Cristi,

      Thanks for your post.

      It's a competitive niche for sure. Competition is NOT a bad thing. It's a GREAT thing. Shows a healthy market, lots of demand, lots of money to be made, tons of products on sale, an easy to find target audience onloine, lots of people to network with, load of affiliates ETC ETC ETC.

      I LOVE competition.

      Online marketing is NOT about targeting keywords. That's a small part of it that you don't even need to do to be successful. There are hundreds of ways to generate traffic to sites without search engines.

      Google is NOT the internet. You can drive traffic from PPC, email, social media, blogs, forums, reddit, solo ads, podcasts, networking, content marketing etc.

      None of that relies on keywords or search volumes. That's outdated thinking.

  4. Cristi says:

    Sorry I didn't want to offend or something... Just said my opinion that a bit more information from the competition point of view would be valuable. I am following your blog because I find it full with good information, I am no expert just I think competition has to be considered as well...studying your competitors is one of the steps for success... Again I am no expert.. My opinion.
    Thanks for replying

    • NicheHacks says:

      Of course you didn't offend Cristi. 😀

      I was just pointing out that competition isnt a bad thing and that there's no need to worry about ranking for keywords or Google traffic when there's so many sources of traffic.

      I appreciate your comments and you are right maybe I should include a competition section in futuree. Thanks!

  5. Tim Seidler says:

    Great niche, but so saturated. I wouldn't touch it unless I planned to spend the next 3 years of my life devoted to breaking into the bigger search queries.

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Tim, thanks for your comment.

      I believe there's ALWAYS room in big niches like this for new players. A niche like this is too huge to be saturated.

      You don't have to do anything with search queries. There's life outside of Google and hundreds of places to find your target audience and drive traffic from.

      Over saturation is a niche as huge as this isn't something I'd even think about.

    Who is Eleanor? How can I get products from her?

  7. Jason says:


    This is Jason from South Africa.

    I'm a newbie to affiliate marketing and your site has provided me with a wealth of education... I am eternally grateful!

    Im really excited to try out the steps outlined, however I am afraid of when rankings slip, how to ensure sustainability, whilst securing a steady flow of income through commissions.

    Which are the highest paying affiliate programs? And how to tap into these programs even when the rankings are medium to high?

    Thank you once again! God bless!


    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Jason,

      How's South Africa? I really need to come visit sometime, heard so many good things about it.

      The secret is to forget about trying to rank. 😉

      Google is NOT the internet and NOT the only source of traffic...

      Traffic is the same for every site / niche.

      Work out WHO your target audience is then where they hang out online (or offline) and then have a presence there. 

      Get your content and / or ads on all those places and find ways to funnel those people to your own site. 

      It's all about leveraging other peoples audience to drive their traffic to your site.

      It could be through guest posts, blog commenting, forum marketing, content syndication, networking with others in the niche so they feature you in posts, social media marketing, banner ads, PPC, solo ads etc.

      When you find a traffic source that works and converts then scale it up where possible.

      Networking is a big one for me. By interacting with other bloggers, linking to them, sharing their content, featuring them in expert round ups and so on they often return the favor. 

      There's some good ideas here:




      As for the highest paying affiliate programs, I wrote a post on that too...


      Enjoy 🙂

    Your site is a joke, you keep giving us niches that have large search volume but tremendous competition, anyone can do that, it is not useful what so ever

    • NicheHacks says:

      Online marketing is about much more than search volumes and competition.

      You do MARKET research not just keyword research.

      Competition is a GREAT thing.

      It shows a profitable and in demand market.

      It means lots of customers with money to spend.

      Tons of products on sale we can promote and make money from.

      A huge existing audience already online we can tap into.

      A huge pool of people to network with and ideas for content.

      If something has no competition it has no competition for a reason - it's not profitable, there's no money to be made.

      You can get involved in those uncompetitive niches all you like but I, and the rest of the niches hacks tribe, will stick to the ones where people actually spend money.

      Marketing isn't about SEO. That's just 1, unpredictable and ungauranteed source of traffic that you have no control over and will never fully understand.

      Anyone who builds a 'business' (if you can call a site reliant on search traffic a business) on something they have absolutely no control over, in unpredictable, not guaranteed and that can be taken away at any time has a business that's one algorithm update away from being bankrupt.

      Google isn't the internet nor the only source of traffic. There's thousands of ways to get traffic and most of it much more controllable than SEO - paid, email, video, social, content marketing, blogs, forums, syndication, sharing sites, PPC etc etc etc.

      Open your mind John. Stop with this limited thinking that to make money you must find something that's 'new' and no one else knows about.

      There's no new niches. Someone else always knows about them. It's just that they are new to you.

      And if they were new anyway then there would be little information about them, hardly any customers, no products on sale, low demand....doesn't sound like a niche I want to be in.

      Give me a big, proven profitable, niche any day of the week. All you have to do is find a unique way to compete or a sub-niche and you're set.

      Thanks for commenting!

    • Christine says:

      How very rude!! ...just shows the quality of the person posting. Please learn to add value or keep quiet.

      Great work Stuart, thanks for the info!

  9. Aaron says:

    I like the niche! I just went golfing yesterday and thought about it. I'm a dropshipper and run ecommerce as my sales. I am going to start adding ebooks as well to my sites. My question would be, if I wanted to break into this niche would I want to stay away from the main things like clubs and focus on a sub-niche like golf gps. Or maybe golf training products?

  10. Suits says:

    Hey guys,

    very interested in starting up a web site in the golf niche. I love the game and would very much like the opportunity to profit from it with some work.

    Would the idea be to have a site for articles and blogs along with a web shop and links to other products via amazon and clickbank.

    would just making a site along with amazon and clickbank suffice without e-commerce?

    hope you can help 🙂

    • NicheHacks says:

      There's a million & one golf blogs out there (not a bad thing it shows it's profitable and in demand) so your blog will have to offer something unique, different or better. No need to re-invent the wheel but a generic golf blog isn't going to cut it in this competitive niche. And yeah you could monetie with Amazon and Clickbank. Don't simply try and create something that looks like an ECommerce site where you just link to affiliate products however as that likely won't work.

  11. Zee says:

    Hi Stuart,

    I have been wanting to enter this market for a while now, since I have a few websites that have proven to be successful over the years and have read up on the market and would like to pursue it.

    If i was to set up a website based around the Golf Niche, what are the affiliate ecommerce networks for golf? Other than Amazon. As I am wanting to open an online shop for golf fanatics and sell almost everything but the hard thing is finding the affiliate products.. can you help?

    Many Thanks

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Zee, I'm not too familiar with the affiliate networks. You can check CJ.com, ShareASale and you'll find many affiliate networks that cater to golfers.

  12. Zee says:

    I would offer a blog and target specific golf related topics, and promote clickbank and affiliate products and PPC wherever necessary, but I am more interested in the eCommerce side to things, although you may disagree to some extent I am confident that it could work with a some help of SEO of course.
