What are "Skins"?

Skins is a betting game where the winners are those who have the best score on a hole without ties. If 2 or more people have the best score on a hole, that hole is "halved" and no skins is won. The pot is then divided by the number of skins, and winners are paid out.


There are many variations to the skins game, but Golf League Tracker supports the two most popular. One is paying to join the game only when you play. With this method, the pot may change each week based on how many players joined the skins game. The other is a preset pot, where players pay to join the skins game up front at the start of the season.


You can run a "GROSS" skins game, where handicaps are not used, or a "NET" skins game, where a player's handicap is used to calculate a net score on each hole, and the net score is used to determine the outcome. Each pot is separate, and both games can be run concurrently. A player can be entered into none, one, or both games at the same time.

Net Skins Options

Golf League Tracker has many configurable options for Net Skins. For example, you can use a percentage of handicap, limit the number of strokes a player can receive in total or per hole based on the Par of the hole (e.g. no strokes on par 3s), or setting a "worst score" which can win a skins (e.g. if you don't want bogeys to win skins).

See the Settings List for a full explanation of your options.

Breaking Out By League Group

If your league uses "League Groups" (found under Weekly Admin / League Setup / Manage League Groups) you can turn on the option in your skins settings to break out the skins by group. This makes it so that each group has their own pot and own winners.
