The “Point” System
We use a modified Stafford-Simpson point system much like the PGA Tour. Under the points system, golfers receive points based on the following scale. The points are:
- 1 point for a net Bogey
- 2 points for a net Par
- 3 points for a net Birdie
- 4 points for a net Eagle
This point system is commonly used on golf courses throughout the country with some variation, and is a fair and impartial judge of how well we play. The points are accumulated hole-by-hole and totaled at the end of the round.
A player’s SCGA handicap adjusted for MMGC is used to determine his or her course handicap using the sheets posted above the PMGA table in the pro shop. On each hole, subtract handicap strokes from gross score, and then record the Blitz points earned.
Players use our yellow PMGA scorecards available on our PMGA table in the pro shop to keep score, recording their score and Blitz points on a hole-by-hole basis. Points are totaled for the front and back nines, and overall.
Cost to Play
Participants in the Gaggle competition complete envelopes found on our PMGA corner table, enclose their money, and deposit the envelopes in the PMGA slot or jar at the pro shop desk.
There are 2 separate games that we play and the cost to play in each is as follows:
- Gaggle – $10
- Natural Birdies – $5
Determining the Winners
The Gaggle is played on Wednesday and Saturday and paid out the same day. The number of positions paid depends on how many players there are for that day according to a formula sheet already prepared for payouts. The game consists of Individual and 2 Man teams (a random generator is used to select the 2 Man teams). If 2 or more individuals Birdie the same hole that hole is considered ‘dead’. The Birdie payout is divided by the pot and the number of good Birdies.
