About 2-3 weeks before each skins game an email goes to the Rancho Skins Google Group with the game details. If you want to receive these emails go to Google Groups and ask to be added to the ranchoskins group. Or email and ask to be added.

  • For most events, the buy-in is $36. $30 goes into skins. $5 goes into Low Net game. $1 goes into the Ace Pot.
  • Net skins game only. All players get strokes per their course handicap. Handicaps are limited to 18 strokes.
