Individual Based Scoring Game using a points and quota handicap system. Each player has a quota of points to earn in a round, and those quotas are based on an expected average score. For example average score of 90 = 18 pt quota, average score of 80 = 28 pt quota, etc.
Two flights based on 50% split.
The format awards points for the following scores on any hole:
4 for Eagle
3 for Birdie
2 for Par
1 for Bogey
0 for Double Bogey
The number 108 is the "magic number" for determining point quotas. You subtract a player's expected average score from 108 to get his points quota. For a simple example, if a player is expected to average 72, his quota is 36 (108 minus 72). This assumes he can earn 2 points for a par on every hole. A player who averages 90 needs 18 points to break even.
Quotas are adjusted after each round. If you underscore you have a lower quota the next week and vice versa. The adjustments are only half the difference which accounts for variability. If my quota is 16 and I score 14 points, my quota the next week is 15.
There are weekly payouts and a cumulative total prize for the season's top points earners.
This format does a great job of creating a real active competition between players of all abilities. There are people who are only required to pull 3-4 points some days and others who need to earn 36. But in a way we're all playing the same course and the same game and anyone could get hot and win.
Men age 69 and younger play White tees, players 70+ play Silver tees and women play Red tees. The game will use improved lies, but no gimmie putts.
