Ive played for money about ten times and won 8 of those times. We usually put 2 bucks each in the pot and theres usually 6-8 of us playing so winner takes 12-14 bucks. Honestly I think im a pretty good disc golfer, but when I play tournaments I get shown how average I really am.

if we play dubs, its usually $2/head, but singles means dollar skins.

every shot counts!

Me and a co-worker always play for $10 per game, nine or eighteen hole. It makes it a bit more competitive and actually made us both start learning and playing by the rules along with abiding by the all the mandos and O.B.'s

Where was the "whenever my cheap a$$ friends are down"?
I won't go looking to give my money away but if thier good enough for me to learn something I don't mind losing a couple bucks.
I just apply the wisdom I recieved when learning to play shuffle board in an irish pub. "you want to learn? You have to bet!"

We have a couple of local leagues which hold minis on various days of the week. Entry fees for the minis ranges between 6-12 dollars depending on the format and whether players are in Am or Open divisions. During the spring and summer I play in 1 or 2 events per week.

I've also played for money during casual rounds with friends. Sometimes we'll play skins, sometimes just winner takes all, sometimes I'll handicap my opponent a few strokes if I generally play better than them. These are always a friendly wagers, just to make things interesting, and are generally for $5 or less.
