A scoring system where competitors win or lose points based on hole score.
This is an individual tournament format where each player attempts to accumulate the most points. Points are won or lost as follows:
Double Eagle 8 points
Eagle 5 points
Birdie 2 points
Par 0 points
Bogey -1 point
Double Bogey -2 points
Note: you can establish your own point values as well. When playing with higher handicappers you pay want to give a point for a par and so on….
The tournament is typically played with Gross scores but can easily be done on a Net basis.
Betting amounts can be established prior to the match to put a little skin in the game. Set a value for each point, or for total points, or use a Nassau method for the winning points on the front, back and total score.
