Is Vegas Betting a fun way to play?
Some of my buddies have a huge handicap gap, making games hard to pick. This weekend we have:
Team A (8 hcp & 26 hcp) vs. Team B (10 hcp & 24 hcp)
I've never played Vegas betting, but think this is a good time to try it. That way everyone's score counts and we will use net scores on each hole.
I've scoured the web and these forums for suitable game options. Bingo-Bango-Bongo, Wolf, Better Ball and others rarely result in a close match. The lower handicapper always seems to carry the load which is, honestly, demoralizing for the higher handicappers.
What (I think) I like about Vegas Betting:
- Everyone's score counts on every hole
- Every shot counts until the 18 hole because you might want to minimize your loses
- With net scoring applied, scores should be close to normalized
What are your thoughts on Vegas? I definitely don't want to turn this into a laundry list of game suggestions. There are plenty of discussions for that already
