That reminds me of a day my son and I were just playing a casual round and one of the senior golfers came by us on his way home. He stopped and asked me if I knew how to play wolf. When I told him I did he said he just played that game and it cost him $150 dollars and he would never play that game again.

 

I know the guys he was playing with and they were all about the same skill level so I don't know what they did to him but he wasn't a happy camper.

Losing $150 would piss me off too. Don't know what "Wolf" or "Skins" are but that's what google is for.

 

The way I look at it, even if I played even up (no handicap) with a better player and we bet a couple of bucks per hole, I would lose most of the holes but would at least have a chance to limit the damage - that would be the challenge. The worst that would happen is that I'd pay for his round while getting the chance to play golf against a decent player. Not saying I could throw money away like that very often, but it would be fun.
