On July 10, fourteen Alaskan golf pros will be playing a skins game for $$$$. It starts at 6 p.m. and is open and free for spectators. It is a lot of fun to watch and you’ll get to see some great golf shots from the pros. Each hole has a value and if no pro wins that hole then the dollars are carried over to the next hole until that skin is won. We guarantee that if you come out and watch, you’ll be back each and every year.
