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.
