Points (Free)

At 18Birdies, we love GameBets. Of course, there are many different variations to the way people play side games, so we’ve provided a flexible framework that allows you to play whichever way you like - Points!

Choose the number of betting units that correspond to each point, and then as you play, manually add points to each player’s total to reflect their on course performance.

Points is always free for all 18Birdies golfers.
