The Golfers can only be found around the island of Leaf Links and the streets surrounding it, although unarmed female members of the gang can spawn around the areas surrounding Washington Beach. The Golfers do not superficially appear to be a real gang, but are defined as a gang in the game's internal files. As such, VCPD officers will occasionally attempt to attack them, but the Golfers will usually win as their weapons do more damage. Killing them raises the "Gang members wasted" statistic and killing enough of them will show the Golfers as being the "Least favorite gang" of the player.
The gang almost always carry Golf Clubs, and will attack the player if provoked. They will also take out pistols if they can't physically reach the player with their clubs, even when in the golf course itself, which is unusual as guns are stripped from the player at the course entrance. They can be seen driving Caddies.
The male golfers are aging obese men who wear pink shirts, checkered shorts, red socks, and gray golfing shoes, while the female golfers are older slim women who wear white vests, pink shorts, and pink trainers. If the player kills a member of the gang, they will drop a large amount of money and a Golf Club.
