Awarding Shots in Stableford

Awarding Shots & Awarding Shots

Before you can begin to play record your round using stableford points, you first must calculate on which golf holes you will be awarded shots.

These Awarded Shots will allow you to correctly calculate your Stableford points and are used throughout the round.

What we need to do is assign each shot of your handicap to a specific hole so that on the most difficult holes you receive additional shots.

Awarded Shots with Stableford Scoring

You firstly must calculate on which golf holes you will be awarded shots. These Awarded Shots will allow you to correctly calculate your Stableford points. For each shot of your handicap, you must assign it to a hole.

If you have a handicap of 9, you would be entitled to 9 extra shots.

Therefore you would be awarded one extra shot for the 9 most difficult holes, SI of 1 to 9.

Examples

18 Handicap Player

 

A handicap of 18 means you would be awarded one shot per hole.

 

24 Handicap Player

 

A handicap of 24 would give you one shot for every hole plus one extra for the 6 most difficult holes. Therefore, 2 shots for holes with a SI between 1 and 6 and one-shot for holes with an SI of 7 to 18, giving a total of 24.
