The golfshake.com system currently calculates UK stableford points for all rounds played. This includes all international courses and 9 hole courses.
The following are the details of the UK stableford scoring system :
The system works on an handicap basis so players of varying handicap levels can compete against each other on an equal par. Extra shots/strokes are added to holes based on the SI (Stroke Index) for each hole and the players handicap.
For example a player with a golf handicap of 28 would get 2 extra shots on the 10 hardest holes definded by the SI and one shot for each of the remaining 8. If they played against another player with a golf handicap of 15 this player would get 1 shot only on the 15 hardest holes.
An hole of SI 15 for either of the above would give them both 1 additional shot. Therefore a score of 5 after deducting the extra shot would equate to a net par which would be 2 stableford points based on the following scoring system :
|British Stableford||Classic Stableford|
|Triple Eagle +||6 pts||-|
|Double Eagle||5 pts||8 pts|
|Eagle||4 pts||5 pts|
|Birdie||3 pts||2 pts|
|Par||2 pts||0 pts|
|Bogey||1 pts||-1 pts|
|Double Bogey +||0 pts||-2 pts|
If a player played exactly to their golf handicap then the points total should be 36.
