Stableford Scoring

Each player plays against the par of each hole and receives points according to how he scores in relation to par. The scoring system is as follows:


2 or more over par ‐ 0 points

1 over par ‐ 1 point

Par ‐ 2 points

1 under par ‐ 3 points

2 under par ‐ 4 points

3 under par ‐ 5 points

The score is the nett score for each hole dependent on the player's handicap. The allowance for the competition is 95% of the player's course handicap which will be given from their handicap index. Handicap index is capped at 24.4 for men and 28.4 for women. The net score is calculated by taking strokes at the appropriate hole using the stroke index shown on the card.

Dress Code

Entrants to the PPG Golf Masters are expected to wear appropriate golfing attire whilst on course and in the clubhouse.


Personal Conduct

Individuals will be responsible for their own conduct. PPG will take no responsibility for situations arising from inappropriate conduct outside of the organised event itinerary.
