The New Points System for
Manteca Men's Golf Club
At our February business meeting a new points system was introduced by John Baskett and was accepted with a motion, and seconded, to give it a try. This points system will be retroactive and used for the full year of 2016.
The new points system breaks down the scheduled 18 tournaments for 2016 into three (3) different groups with those being: major tournaments, individual stroke play tournaments and team events.
What the Officers, Board of Directors and the members want to accomplish, is making “Player of the Year” more of an individual effort and letting the team events (without individual stroke play) take just a little more of a back seat. These team events are still going to be played because they are so much fun for everyone, but the points are different as I will show you.
The clubs three (3) Major Championship Tournaments are Match Play, Par Point and the Stroke Play. These tournaments will receive 140% of what is won by the players placing in the top 25% of the field in “book dollars”. In other words, if you place somewhere in that top 25% of the field and you win $75.00 in money on the books, you will receive 140% of that in tournament points, which is 105 points.
The next group of tournaments will be any “individual stroke play tournaments” played individually or in a team format with these tournaments receiving 120% of what is won in “book money”. When you win $75.00 in this, your tournament points will be 90 points. Now the last tournament of the year is called, Double Points and that is just what you get! You receive 200% of what you win in book money. Another example. If you win $75.00 in this tournament you get 150 points and this is where some places are changed almost every year.
We have 4 team events scheduled and these tournaments receive all 100% of the money won on the books. Yes, $75.00 dollars receives 75 points. SURPRISE, SURPRISE ! Read this over a couple of times and if you have any questions you can get a hold of John Baskett and he will try to get you an answer.
The participation points still remain the same and that is each player that plays in a tournament receives 5 points and each member that attends the monthly
meeting receives 5 points and 3 points for playing in our summer fun tournaments. When a player plays in the fun tournament they have to attend the meeting to receive any winnings they earn in the nine hole tournament. The participation points help get players in the "Top Gun Shoot Out" that is held in January of each year.
The Manteca Men's Golf Club changes monthly business meeting day, again!
At the meeting on January 18, 2018 the members that attended the meeting decided to change
the monthly meeting back to the 3rd Tuesday of the month instead of meeting on the 3rd
Wednesday. This also means that the 9 hole fun tournaments (Played during daylight savings time)
before the meeting will also be change to Tuesday. We hope that this meets your schedule and
you can join us for our meetings.
