Inhoud: A widely practiced but understudied gambling activity is the wagering that occurs between participants in games of physical skill. Little is known about what draws players to this form of gambling, the sub-groups involved or their social dynamics, the strategies employed, and whether, and to what extent, this activity is associated with disordered gambling. Gamblers were studied in their natural environment at two private golf clubs. Prominent themes emerging from the research include: motivations for gambling on golf, socialisation into golf course gambling, the golf course betting hierarchy, deceptive practices and evidence of disordered gambling. In general, the golf course wagering we investigated embraced several unique features and traditions that generally make it a salutary gambling experience, largely free of the destructive elements associated with luck-based gambling formats. The study's findings are utilised to make observations about other gambling formats and gamblers in general.
