GOLF POINTS INDEX (GPI)

We are excited to introduce the Golf Points Index System (GPI) to our students. For those who have a TFT membership, students are eligible to participate in the GPI. Students keep track of their scores online and GPI will track your points for different events including coming to class, participating in other events, volunteering etc. Much like Dave & Busters, the points can accumulate for students to earn great prizes.

DETAILS

The Golf Points Index is a new scoring and handicap system which uses points earned on each hole in order to keep score and track progress.

With GPI, a double bogey is worth 1/2 point, a bogey is 1 point, a par is 3 points, a birdie is 5 points, and an eagle is 8 points. All other results are scored as a 0.

The system equitably rewards good play and does not unfairly punish bad.

The GPI handicap is your 9 hole point average over the last 180 holes played. It allows golfers to play as many or as few holes as desired and still enter a score towards their index.

Students will now be able to compete individually and in teams on a level playing field regardless of their respective abilities.
