The Leaf Link Golfers, also known as the Golfers, are a group of Leaf Links Country Club members that hang around on the Leaf Links islands, Vice City, in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. The Golfers do not superficially appear to be a real gang, but are defined as a gang in the game's internal files. Killing them raises the "Gang members wasted" statistic and killing enough of them will show the Golfers as being the "Least favorite gang".
They do not take any part in the storylines of the games, but are seen carrying 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, which is unusual as guns are stripped from the player at the course entrance. They drive Golf Caddies.
The male golfers wear pink shirts and Checkered Shorts, while the female golfers wear white vests and pink shorts. They mainly hang around the Leaf Links golf club but can be seen sometimes on the surrounding streets of the golf course. If the player manages to kill one of them, they leave a lot of money, and a Golf Club.

In later PS2 versions of GTA Vice City, a bug occurs involving the Leaf Link Golfers. When the golfers are not able to physically reach the player, they will pull out their pistols and shoot them. However on some PS2 versions when this happens the game freezes.
