Looking for a table to assign points at league

I am running a league this season. We want to give points based on how many players show up (so you get more points for coming in first among 5 than first among 15). I know I have seen tables that tell you how to assign points, but I can't find one. Can anyone help me out?

I believe it's most commonly as follows

-1 point for showing up
-1 point for every stroke under par
-1 point for ever person you beat

Then on top of that you can give extra points for winning, aces... etc..

Around here points aren't given for how many players you beat, which simplifies things, and doesn't hold you responsible for whether other people showed up.

It's point(s) for showing up, a point for every stroke under par (on a course where under par is the norm; use every stroke under a certain score for longer courses), and bonus points of 5 for 1st, 3 for 2nd, 1 for 3rd.

Which isn't to say it's the best system, but it is simple to calculate and still gives you something to throw for when you're out of the money.

We have two leagues... booth with different formats.

For our winter league, you get 1 point for playing and 3 for 1st, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd. 12 week season.

For our High School League... we give 1 point for playing, and finishing, your round (you cannot DNF), and then you earn bonus points for finishing in the top 1/3 of the field (15 players = 5 bonus point spots with 1st earning 5 bonus points, 2nd earning 4, etc...).
