What is Stableford

Stableford is basically a strokeplay competition but each hole is scored individually. This means that if you have a particularly bad hole it doesn’t impact on you total round to the same extent that it normally. It will only cost you a point or two. Please see below on how it is scored.

How Stableford is scored. 

Your handicap is allocated according to the index on the card. For example- if your handicap is 10 you have a shot for holes indexed 1 to 10. You reduce the score that you obtain on a hole by a shot if you have a handicap for that hole, then score as follows. 

Par is 3. For a hole completed in one over par – 1 point, for hole completed in par – 2 points, For hole completed in one under par – 3 points, For hole completed in two under par – 4 points, For hole completed in three under par – 5 points (Hole in one that you have a shot on) 

The above scoring is for information only and cards should be marked as normal and the committee will calculate the points scored.

We would love to see as many members as possible playing in all of the competitions. Don’t worry if you are only new to the game – that is why we all have handicaps. Handicaps will be posted on the board in the clubhouse.
