Description:
Quota points is a game where you are playing against your own past performances to see if you can out-perform them, here’s how it works. Points are scored for your performance, bogey = 1 point, par = 2 points, birdie = 4 points, eagle = 6 points. Charles announces that he is an 18 handicap on the first day of league. A zero handicapper would have a quota of 36 points, 2points for par x 18 holes = 36. So for Charles to match his quota he must get 18 points (36-18=18). Charles goes out to play and bogeys every hole but one and birdies that one. Charles has earned 21 points (17+4) so he is +3 to his 18 point quota. Because Charles is + to his quota, he knows he’s in the money now, he just doesn’t know how many others are + to their points until everyone comes in and the results are tabulated. In this case there is $30 in the pot and Charles is the only one who is + to his points, so Charles wins the pot! Next week, because Charles was +3 to his quota, his new target is +19, or one point higher (see rules below).

Format:
The format is stroke play but you may pick up your ball if you are over bogey to speed play. If you pick up please enter your ‘most likely’ score (see section 4-1 of the USGA handicap manual) so that you are able to enter a score into the ghin system. If you are not a ghin member please consider becoming one.
 
Rules:
  • Men may play from whatever tee they choose but you must remain on that tee to fully compete. If you choose to change tees there will be a 3 week period where you are limited to +2 maximum.
  • For every +2 performance, we will add 1 stroke to your next week quota. If you shoot +4, you get 2 strokes more, +6 gets 3 strokes more, and so on.
  • For every performance - 4 or lower your quota will reduce next week by 1 point.
  • No gimme putts. The ball must be holed out.
  • All shots in the fairway can be rolled into a preferred lie within one club length no closer to the hole.
