In the world of sports, golf occupies the top tier in terms of the wealth associated with it. However, it is one of the most competitive sports as well. Be it male or female golfers, all of them participating in the international sphere have to be committed to improving their respective games in order to rank among the richest athletes in the world.

The key for golfers to perform consistently in the professional circuit for a long time lies in the training day in and day out. Only those who are able to go that extra mile enjoy the privilege of reaping substantial dividends from the sport.

While a golfer earns more than enough from his or her professional career to lead a life of luxury, there are other sources of acquiring wealth for these athletes, too. Like most major sports, the star performers in golf have multinational brands chasing them for sponsorship deals.

It is important to note that golfers continue to enjoy monetary benefits from these endorsement deals long after they retire from the sport. Therefore, curating a list of the richest golfers without taking the retired players into account will fail to highlight the importance of golf as a lucrative sport.

Even though the men in golf earn far more than their female counterparts, leading to low pay parity, the women golfers earn more than most athletes from other sports. On that note, here is a curated list of the top richest female golfers in the world by their respective net worth.
