Strokeplay– Sometimes referred to as Singles- This just means you count the number of strokes taken for a round of 18 holes. Subtract your handicap to give your net score. This is sometimes scored using VPAR or the Stableford points system. Please see below.

Scramble– Teams of three or Two are drawn out. All of the team tee off. The position of the best ball from the three is marked and all of the team play their next shot from that position. The process is repeated until the ball is holed. The score is recorded for the hole and the process is repeated for each hole. The three handicaps are divided by three to give the team handicap. In a Two Ball Scramble the combined handicaps are divided by two to give the team handicap. This is a fun competitive game to enable new and inexperienced players to obtain experience in playing competitions and, get to know the rules etc. all without the pressure of having to play well. It’s also a great way to get to know your fellow members. Usually, the teams are structured so that they contain a player of good ability, medium ability and beginner level ability.

Scotch Foursome– Teams of two are drawn out. Both players tee off. The team then select the best ball and play alternative shots until it is holed. Whoever played the tee shot of the selected ball the other player must play the second shot.

Stableford– This scores each hole individually with points. Each hole on a Pitch and Putt course is a par 3. With Stableford you score points on each hole that you play. A Four – one over par – is 1 point. A Three – par- is 2 points. A Two – one under par – is 3 points. Your handicap is allocated to the holes based on the index for the particular hole. Therefore, if you score a five on a hole that your handicap is allocated to, then it counts as a four and you score a point. Stableford favours the weaker players as if a player has a particularly bad score on a hole it just means you don’t score any points on that hole. A high scoring hole doesn’t impact as much on your overall score as a high scoring hole in Strokeplay. The committee will mark up the points on your card. The score is just recorded as normal on your card.

V PAR–With V PAR each hole is scored individually. A par (3) scores zero, a 4 or higher scores minus one and a two or lower scores plus 1.  If you have a shot on a hole because of your handicap that will be taken from you score on that hole before it is calculated on your card. The committee will mark up the points on your card. The score is just recorded as normal on your card.
