A course handicap of 10 results in a quota of 26 (36 minus 10). So that golfer is trying to beat 26 points. A course handicap of 24 results in a quota of 12 (36 minus 24), and that golfer is trying to beat 12 points. Again, the winner is the golfer who exceeds her quota by the most.
Adjust a golfer’s quota based on how far above or below the quota they were in the last round played. This is the most prevalent method. Calculate the quota as an average of previous rounds. Leagues determine how many rounds they want to average and whether to drop any high or low point totals.
Steps to Auto Adjust: Click on the "Adjust Quotas" Button at the top of the Page. Click on the "By Previous Round Score" button. Set the Percentage to Adjust by and then click the "Adjust All Quotas" button. Screenshot of Quotas that were auto adjusted by 50% of the Previous Round Score.
Unlike a Stableford or Modified Stableford event where players are simply accruing points, in Quota, players start with a point hurdle of 36 less their handicap. So, a 16 handicap player would start with a quota of 20. If he or she earned 25 points during a round, his or her total score would be 5 for the day.
At the start of the round, a player subtracts their handicap from the number 36, and that number becomes that player's quota for the day. From there, the players in the game -- and it can be ...
When one player has a triple bogey instead of a double bogey on a stroke hole stroke (player D on the par 4 ninth hole), his Quota score remains unchanged. His Stableford score is reduced by one point and his adjusted score minus his handicap is increased by one. The Quota System gives a slight edge to players more likely to have a triple bogey.
If you would had scored 24 points, then your first round score would be +2, and your next round quota would be 23. (50% of +2 is +1 / 1+22=23) This adjustment continues for the next round (s). The Classic Champion is the golfer who has the highest total (all scores added together) at the end of the tournament.
The quota of points is determined by the following formula: 39 - Course Handicap. As an example, a golfer with a 1 handicap would have a quota of 38 points, while a golfer with a 20 handicap would have a quota of 19. The minimum quota is 2 points, given to golfers with handicaps of 37 and above.
