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 net score for each hole dependent on the player's handicap. The allowance for the Competition is 90% of the player's handicap which is capped at 24 for men and 28 for women. The net score is calculated by taking strokes at the appropriate hole using the stroke index shown on the card.
