The Points Cup is a year-long competition to earn points for playing and placing in ERMGC weekend tournaments. After the September Club Championship Tournament, the top twenty four players in the points standings will play in an additional, limited-field event to determine Points Cup winners. Players will be assigned to one of three evenly divided flights based on these seedings. There is no entry fee required for the Points Cup final.

Points are awarded to NET flight participants in every weekend tournament as follows:

Place Place Poinsettia Cup & Bonus Events Club Championship

3rd 15 22 22

The twenty-four Club Members having earned the most points in the 2018-2019 Points Cup Championship Series of events (commencing in October 2018 and ending in September 2019) will be invited to play in the 2019 Points Cup Net Championship for their flight. Members meeting this criterion will be notified of their eligibility to play in the Points Cup Net Championships shortly after the conclusion of the September Club Net Championship Tournament and must confirm their participation no later than October 1. Points counting toward the 2019-2020 Points Cup Net Championships, in addition to prizes, will be awarded to entrants in each flight based upon order of finish. Players will be seeded according to their handicap index using the GHIN index revisions issued on October 1.

Players will be assigned to one of three evenly divided flights based on these seedings – the eight players with the lowest handicap indices will be placed into the Encinitas Flight and will play from the blue tees, the next eight players will be placed into the Carlsbad Flight and will play from the green tees, and the remaining eight of the field will placed into the Del Mar Flight and will play from the white tees.
