Point Quota A good game for large groups. First, all players throw a set dollar amount in the pot. Then, each player subtracts their handicap from 36 to determine their “Point Quota.” For example, a 10-handicapper would have a quota of 26. During the round, players earn 1 point for bogey, 2 for par, 4 for birdie and 8 for eagle. The player (or team) who beats their quota by the largest margin wins the pot!
