Stroke Index

When using stableford scoring, you must first know you handicap.

Your handicap is used to award you with a number of shots per hole depending on the Stroke Index of a particular hole.

The stroke index of each golf hole is defined as the difficulty of one hole in comparison to other golf holes on the same course.

Every golf hole is given a unique stroke index, For an 18 hole golf course they are numbered from 1 - 18. SI 1 is the hardest hole and SI 18 is the easiest hole.

 

Stroke Index on a 9 Hole Course

If you are playing a 9 hole course, then the first 9 would be odd numbers, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17 in some order. When you play them a second time, the corresponding hole would be its even counter part. So SI 3 would become SI 4 on the second 9, SI 17 would become 18.
