Scoring a Stableford Round

The system of scoring a round of golf by Stableford was devised by Dr. Frank Stableford of the Wallasey & Royal Liverpool Golf Clubs in 1931. The first competition held under Stableford Rules was played on 16 May 1932 at Wallasey Golf Club.

The Player/Team receives points per hole based on performance in relation to their score and the par of each hole.

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, and your round in the club house
4 under par - 6 points , call the Guinness Book of World Records!

A player's score is based on the nett score. Players receive shots according to their handicap and the appropriate stroke index for the hole. The points scored for each hole are accumulated and totalled to give the result for the round.

The use of Stableford Rules for the Unofficial Open helps to benefit those players who only get chance to visit a golf course once or twice a year.

Scoring a Medal Round

You really need to ask? Count the shots taken to 'hole out' at each hole and add them together to get a score for the round. Need a calculator? Fail to complete any hole and you are looking at a Nancy Reagan (NR)
