    In friendly matches where a bunch of guys toss in $60 .. 20 skins, 20 stableford, 20 blind 2 man draw, approx. $450



    In a weekend two day cash scramble, my share of the 4 man team win and a lone skin day 2 was about $2,600 (my 3 partners caps combined for +11)



    When the twin and I won our member guest in 2011, between prizes and cash (calcutta and parimutuals) it had to be close to $5 or $6k each. I do hear of some big course here in greater Toronto that see MG calcutta pools over 100 grand

    $2000 in prizes and gift certificates I guesstimate



    Money in friendly games, it evens out and is pocket change. Maybe won/lost $50 at most

    I have won just enough money in playing golf to afford my GolfWRX free subscription.

    Best haul for me was $780 bucks. This was for a mens tournament that was held in Edgewood Tahoe. Took home first place for the entire tournament $400, took the low net for the 1st day and a Kp which was another 200 bucks and split the blind draw the second day in like 3 place plus another Kp the second day. Felt good that day. Of course I donated some of it back to Harrah"s casino before I left.

    5 figures more than once. Not always in cash.



    Took someone's college fund once... and gave it back, hopefully to teach a lesson. Not sure if it did.

    I have won scattered $50 gift certificates playing in scrambles.



    As far as the local Senior group, I won $29 one day in October. My team had best-ball low net, and I won two skins (individual).

    I've won and lost quite a bit of money over the years.



    Largest single day win from gambling was just over $3,000 one day at Lakeside Golf Club in Burbank.



    Largest single day loss, probably $1300ish.



    Largest skin was $2,100 this last November at Sandpiper.

    On a single game would be lucky to be $100. In a 50 player Calcutta and I had a slice of the $15k winner.

    And by the way, Ferguson, that was fantastic. Is that connected to an actual golf trip?

    Yes, and of course the story was only slightly embellished to protect the innocent.

    Want to say around $100. Usually play $10 skins no carryover, snake (last 3 putt $10 per), greenies on par 3's ($5 per, must par or better), 6 hole matches with rotating partners every 6 holes ($20 per, auto press when down 2). Maybe one or two individual matches 9/9/18 at $20 per or $50 if no other games going on. Most of it actually works out to cancel out assuming no one shoots a 76 or something. I'm a 10-12 with the rest of the group wither 2-5 or maybe another 10-14 guy.
  • More than I've lost...no more than $130 or so in leagues.

    I know it is not the question but I witnessed $8700 on 18 holes one day. It was in our game but you did not have to lose more than $50 bucks unless you kept pushing things. About 4 of the guys had so many double downs, side bets, and whatever going on that I really didn't even understand all the terminology LOL, but I saw the money change hands. To me that kind of money is an opportunity to lose friends and get kicked out of the house(on the same day), but always relative and these guys had it to play with.

    Me personally, won $185 on a different day playing 2 man best ball team. I was playing to a 3 those days as was my neighbor. The guy was a jerk in most ways but he knew how to bet. He was one of those who seemed to always win money regardless of how he played. We were a decent team in that my HC came from a lot of pars and his rounds were more of the bogey followed by birdie thing most days. I kept us in a lot of holes on tough courses and he would grab enough win holes to carry the money.
