The majority of the golf played by the ACGA is Stableford, it is not so punishing and should be quicker than medal play. For those who are not familiar with this type of play it will be useful to explain how the scoring works.

First of all, we should stress that the gross scores for each hole must be recorded. It is this that the player signs for. In the event it is not possible to score any points (see chart below) a scratch may be entered. A player must ensure he/she has the right score card for the right course. (i.e. some courses we play my have more than one course or loops of 9 holes)

Each player scores stableford points on a hole based on their handicap and the stroke index for the hole. During the round, each player and marker has to calculate the points allocated to each score on a hole based on the stroke index. A player on a handicap of 12 receives a shot on the 12 hardest holes, while a player on a 24 handicap receives a total of 24 shots 1 shot on all 18 holes plus an additional shot (making a total of 2 shots) on the 6 hardest holes,  18 + 6 = 24

You mark both the stroke score and stableford points on the card. Only the stableford points are tallied.

  • ONLY THE MARKERS AND THE PLAYER 'A' ARE TO BE RECORDED ON SCORECARDS.

  • SCORECARDS WITH MORE THAN JUST TWO SCORES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AND PLAYERS 'A' CARD WILL BE DEEMED AS A NON RETURN

  • IT IS PLAYERS 'A' RESPONSIBILITY TO (A) SIGN FOR A CORRECTLY COMPLETED CARD (B) TO ENSURE THEIR CARD IS HANDED IN.
