Not ESPN BET’s First Move Into Golf Betting Scene

ESPN BET continues their legal sports betting integration with golf, as PENN Entertainment already struck a partnership back in December. ESPN BET partnered with Quail Hollow, which happens to be the host of the 2025 PGA Championship.

That partnership gained ESPN access to North Carolina sports betting, as every online operator must partner with a professional sports organization or facility in the state. That partnership made ESPN BET the exclusive sports betting partner of the Wells Fargo Championship , which began on Thursday.
