Player Information Sheet
Club Information (website/address): The Course at Wente Vineyards
5040 Arroyo Rd. Livermore, CA 94550
FORMAT: Individual Chicago points. This format compares a player’s score, in points, to their Quota points which is based off their course handicap. Players will be given a point value base on their gross scores for each hole as follows: Eagle – 8 pts, Birdie – 4 pts, Par – 2 pts, Bogey – 1 pts, Double Bogey or worse – 0 pts. There is a set number of “quota points”. A player receiving 0 strokes has a quota of 39 points. A player’s “quota points” for the round is calculated by subtracting their course handicap from 39 points. The top players are those who “outscore” their quota of points by the greatest number (i.e. if your quota is 30 and you score 35, versus a player whose quota is 33 and they score 36, you have beat them by 2 points). A player will compete based on his/her July 15th handicap revision or tournament index, whichever is lower.
Tees: (Alternate tee upon request if within 72 hours of the event, otherwise tee assignment is required. *Yardages are appoximate.)

PACE OF PLAY & RULES: Please be sure to keep up with the group in front of you. Groups that miss their 18-hole checkpoint (finishing over the designated time and more than 14 minutes behind the group in front of them) are subject to a two-stroke penalty. In order to keep an adequate pace of play, players are asked to pick up once maximum score has been reached on a respective hole; failure to do so will result in a two-stroke penalty.
The Rules of Golf as approved by the USGA and the R & A are in effect. It is the player’s responsibility to have a working knowledge of the rules. For more information regarding the rules, players can visit the NCGA’s website: https://ncga.org/rules/
