Quota: The Golf Game for Three

02 Aug

What game can you play with three players?

I’ve always been stumped when trying to come up with a game to play with just three players.  The other day one of my starters recommended we try “quota.”  You can play it with any amount of players, but it’s one of the few games that work well for a threesome.

How to play:  Everyone subtracts his or her handicap from 36. For example, my handicap is 6 (36-6 = 30) my quota is 30.  Then points are awarded after each hole.

Eagle = 8pts
Birdie = 4pts
Par = 2pts
Bogey = 1pt

Double or higher can be decided based on the skill levels.  The way my starter plays, double bogeys or higher are “0.”  When I play with other single digit handicaps we go into negative points.

No handicaps are applied to the points awarded.  The winner is the person who exceeds their quota by the greatest number of points. Play or quarters, dollars, or lunch afterwards, it makes for some fun competition.

Enjoy your round, Glenn, Madden’s Head Golf Professional

    I just played quota with my friends. None of us reached our quota. Who is the winner? The player with the most points or the player the closest to his quota.
    player A quota 23 got 17
    player B quota 20 got 14
    player C quota 19 got 12

    Does A win or does A and C tie?

    Thank you
