Did I get suckered?

24 posts in this topic

I was passing through Greenville, SC about a month ago I think and was staying at this hotel and played "The Preserve" formerly called "Verdae Greens" I think.  Anyway it's more of a ball placement course for most of the holes and not really a big driver course I would say so yea it can be hard if you are not accurate off the tee at least on the front 9.

Anyway I played the front 9 and made the turn and came up on this 4some on the 10th tee.  I sat there and watched them hit 2 balls each and I guess I was getting noticeably irritated when one on the guys teed up a third ball.  They told me they were betting who could drive the green and they all had $25 riding on it from the white tees. The hole was straight downhill with a big bunker on the front left of it. They said since they were holding me up I could get in on the bet. Everybody gets 3 shots.  I teed the ball up and drove the green but my first ball hit the green and rolled over. The other 2 shots missed left and right but still reached.  Anyway none of them even reached the green and I thought I'd won. Guess what? Nobody won.  They said since my ball didn't stay on the green I didn't win either and I lost 25 bucks. I think I was the sucker who paid for their drinks later. Somehow I don't think this was their first time doing this.

If nobody won who wound up with your money? Why would you let them take it in the first place?

Well I gave this guy the $25 before I made my drives to put in the pot. I didn't think 4 guys were crooks on a golf course but then again who knows. I was thinking maybe this is a type of running pot kind of like some of the golf gambling games. If nobody wins the hole it carries over to the next hole (greenies).  I don't know, I guess I was being stupid.

You definitely got screwed somehow, but you probably should've gotten the lowdown on the whole thing before reaching for your wallet.

I always ask the price before buying at a new shop or restaurant.  You were foolish and greedy. Both correctable.

Yes.. You were suckered! Funny stuff though, I'm sorry to laugh at your expense, but at least you won't fall for it again right?

I would replace foolish with naive. I don't see where you get greedy...

luckily it was only 25 bucks... i'm sure the conners are thinking back on it like they could have made much more than 25 off of you

What?! Why would you just leave your $25 when no one hit the green? I can't fathom why you'd do this?

Sounds like you just didn't ask for it back or something, and went on your merry way.

I'd agree you didn't drive the green since the ball didn't stop, kind of like longest drive has to be on the fairway
