He must have a different definition of "old school". I have no idea though, it's hard to make sense of.

To add to this post from 11 years ago... lol

My backyard course is a 9 hole with 2 tees and 2 baskets on almost every hole. I've currently got 17 baskets littered around my 10 acres. "Ace" the wrong basket out here and I consider it a "grey ace" and only think you owe a dollar. Hardly a black ace if the basket you hit is in the dang fairway! Only one player has had one stick so far, though my wife has tickled chains on two of them, including the one that got hit.

If you haven't ever been paid I don't think you are obligated to pay others. (just my thoughts)

In mini's and events that already have an ace pot, no money for an ace (unless it is a really really sick hole) but the $1 for basket and above still stands. I've been paid $5 by a guy who hit an ace on my card in a tourney and if I ever get a tourney ace I will probably follow his example.

Funny how things come full circle...I used to play with the OP back in the early 2000’s, he ran the Ames, IA city league...not sure if he still dies. 51 club was fairly common at the time in central Iowa, group of 5-10 that played regularly together were definitely in. Normally if somebody “not in” hit metal or an ace everybody would be willing to pay out, but once you accepted 51 money that’s what got you in unless you wanted in on your own prior to accepting money. Originally from southern Illinois and went to school at ISU, hadn’t heard of dg until college. Moved back closer to home after college and sadly enough nobody in STL cares about 51...or at least the guys I presently play with.

Those were the days though, got to volunteer as a spotter for 2004 worlds...those super Rocs were a dime a dozen at the time locally...wished I stashed away a stack.

In MT it’s definitely the older generation of players with a few of the youths who’ve been taught right sprinkled in. As mentioned above, we play cage and up. I offer if I witness, sometimes people know, sometimes they don’t, sometimes they specially say they don’t play 51. It’s all for fun so I always keep some bag cash ready but if somebody doesn’t pay out I won’t offer them the cash in the future. I actually got a single from a card mate at Tuesday League for a cage hit - long live 51!

For #87days last summer we all brought 15 singles and a 5er. Lots of single dollars changing hands and even a couple aces to trade them “big bills”.

I've been in groups that play this, when an ace has been hit, but I'd never heard of it before, and nobody informed me it was in effect. I did not pay, but offered high fives for a good throw!

I'd be much more open to something like this if people explicitly mentioned it prior to the round beginning.

However, in general, I would never think to ask someone to pay me if I hit an ace, so it always surprises when someone else thinks they're "owed" something that was never talked about prior to play.

I would also "opt out" prior to the round if it was brought up.

Not trying to be a spoil-sport, just being true to myself.

most times i've heard about playing 51 around here (DFW), it is brought up before the round. if you're playing with people and you're not sure if they do 51, bringing it up beforehand is the most fair thing to do.

i have paid out on 51 before but never hit anything. i have also not paid out when someone else did hit if they were a total a$$hole about it. if nobody mentioned 51 before the round and someone hits cage or even an ace, and then said person immediately says "you all owe me" and demands cash with an attitude, i'm gonna tell that guy to fukk off


i think of it like a bet. if we didn't agree beforehand, it's not a thing. it's different if your group knows you're in the club though.

I had never heard of 51 until reading this thread. And I've been playing a long time.

I agree with Jukeshoe. This sounds like many of the unwritten rules in sports that drive me crazy. If it isn't written (or at least known/agreed to by all players), it's not a thing.

My group of 5-6 in DFW has an ongoing ace pot. The rules are pretty simple: $1 per round. Anyone can get in as long as they are in before the total reaches $50; after that, no new members. At least three people must be present for the round for the ace pot to be in play. First ace wins all of the cash.

All of this was explained to me when I started playing with the group, so there were no surprises.
