I have not played Quota before and sounds like a great game.  We normal to match play and give strokes on the low handicap holes.  I like how this game does away giving strokes on just certain holes.  

I don't understand the difference between Quota and Chicago Quota other then you need 3 more points to get back to zero or hit your quota.  

Any insight on which one is better to play or why you prefer one over the other?  

Thanks

I prefer the Killer Quota format as Quota usually favors the high HC player.

I've definitely seen quota set up to favor the HC. I.e. if double+ = 0 and you five full caps, a 40 can pick up every hole and still be positive. Last time I played quota, I wouldn't have won even if I shot the course record.

Please tell us about the Killer Quota format. As a low capper I would like to hear more.

We always play the 18 point with game. I'm not familiar with 39 or Killer.

We have handicaps that range from 4 to 15, I can see how 40 would be impossible to compete with.  I thought this would be a good game to play on a 6 round 3 day golf trip.  That way guys will not give up when they are down 5 holes early.  I'm wondering if anyone has noticed a difference between the two different point values that are used.

A 40 cap is impossible to compete with at as the current limit for males is 36.

The maximum handicap index is 36.4 for men.   The course handicap can easily be above that.

We played a lot of $2 Chicago with my friends last year. Works great with larger groups. Very fair. Almost a different winner every time out.

We always played the 39 -handicap for the quota. Also, 1,2,4,8 for points starting at bogey.

The winner was almost always someone who made a birdie or two. If nobody made a birdie of the lower caps, a higher cap was most likely to win. It’s just the way it is weighted.

For the 39 as the start, as explained, if a scratch was playing and magically shot 18 pars, he’d miss his quota by 3. If an 18 magically shot 18 bogeys, he’d miss his quota by 3. In order to make their quota, each player needs to do something exceptional. If you use 36, both players make their quota.

It really doesn’t matter which you use, 36 or 39, if you’re going to pay the player who gets closest to their quota when nobody makes the quota. But if you play 39, and nobody collects unless someone makes their quota, it makes it harder to make the quota.

It’s a fun game that you can play in your group, or with many groups. We usually have 12-15 in 3-4 groups all put in $2, winner take all.

For Chicago, your quota is 39 minus your course handicap. So a 3 has a quota of 36 points. An 18 has a quota of 21 points.

Point structure is bogey=1, par=2, birdie=4, and eagle=8. Double or worse no points.

Everything is played scratch as the handicaps are taken out at the beginning to make the quota. No need to figure out what hole you stroke on. Just subtract your cap and try to make your quota.

The winner is the player that exceeds his quota by the most points.

So a 3 scoring 38 points beats his quota(36) by 2 points. An 18 scoring 24, beats his quota (21) by 3 points. The 18 cap wins the money.

It’s a fun and easy game to score. We saw no consistent winner. It was mostly random based on good play. If you played bad, for you, you weren’t going to win. If you played well, you’d have a chance at winning.

This format certainly overpays birdies. If a high cap makes a birdie, or two, they are nearly impossible to beat. The hard part for them is making birdies or they wouldn’t be high caps.

This format also makes you grind over bogey putts. Getting 1 point is much better than zero. At least you move your point total forward.

This game, I feel, will be much more fun in 2020 with daily handicaps. Play well, beat your quota and post, and likely you’ll have a different, higher, quota tomorrow instead of 2 weeks from now.

Sounds like a modified Stableford to me except with it not mattering where strokes fall. "Modified" in that a birdies and eagles are worth a lot more.

Another group at my home course plays a "Points" game and I heard the paying out the prize fund "per point" over their quota rather that winner take all (as it sounds like your game is). Points sounds similar, yes ?

Thanks.
