Stableford Scoring System
Stableford ( or Modified Stableford ) are alternative scoring systems to the traditional Strokeplay Scoring System. Points are awarded on each hole as determined based on comparison of the number of strokes taken to a fixed score (usually par). This fixed score is then adjusted in relation to the player’s handicap.
Stableford and Modified Stableford scoring is generally more beneficial to the less skilled player as the player cannot score worst than a score of 2 over par. Once a player has taken two strokes more than the adjusted fixed score, he may pick up their ball as it is then not possible to score any points on that hole. They can then resume play on the next hole. Because of this, it is still possible to be competitive even allowing for a few bad holes. At the end of the round, the number of points scored on each hole is totaled to give a final score.
The winner of a Stableford competition is the player with the highest point total.
Standard Stableford Scoring:
Points → Strokes taken in relation to adjusted fixed score
0 → 2 strokes or more over, or no score recorded
1 → 1 stroke over
2 → Same number of strokes
3 → 1 stroke under
4 → 2 strokes under
5 → 3 strokes under
6 → 4 strokes under
Points → Strokes taken in relation to par
+8 points → Albatross (3 strokes under par)
+5 points → Eagle (2 strokes under par)
+2 points → Birdie (1 stroke under par)
0 points → Par
−1 point → Bogey (1 stroke over par)
−3 points → Double bogey or worse (2 strokes or more over par)
