BDGA Points

This is a BDGA points event and is part of the Oncore Golf Race for the Porter Cup and L&M Financial Race for the Senior Porter Cup. Full points information can be found in the "Points List and Past Results" link on the website


NOTE: If you are 50+ years old, you only receive points in the division you sign up for.  If you play in the Open Division, you will not receive points in the Senior Division, and vice versa.



If there is a tie for the winner in any division, a sudden-death will be used unless it is impossible due to darkness or course unavailability. Otherwise, ties will be broken using the USGA method of matching scorecards, which compares the last nine holes (10-18), then last six holes (13-18), last three holes (16-18), and last hole (18).
