Aggregate Point Quota Rules
Players are awarded points for each hole based on the scoring system below
Your 9-hole league handicap will be used, with a base quota of 18
6 points for Eagle
4 points for Birdie
3 points for Par
2 points for Bogey
1 point for Double Bogey
0 for Triple Bogey or higher
How to determine your quota
Your quota is calculated by taking the base quota of 18 minus your handicap
For example: My handicap is 7, my quota (18-7) = 11
My handicap is 12, my quota (18-12) = 6
If your handicap is 18 or higher, your quota = 1
You must make your point quota each round before you earn points for that round
For example: I make 15 points, my quota is 11, I earn +4
I make 5 points, my quota is 6, I earn -1
If you earn +4 points one week, then -1 the next, you are +3 aggregate
Highest Aggregate Score at the end of the season WINS!
