Rather than counting the total number of strokes taken, as in stroke play, it involves scoring points based on the number of strokes taken at each hole. Unlike traditional scoring methods, where the aim is to have the lowest score, under Stableford rules, the objective is to have the highest score. The number of points awarded on each hole is determined based on the player's "net" score on each hole : Net Score Points awarded -3 5 -2 4 -1 3 PAR 2 1+ 1 2+ 0 (pick-up ball) For those in Tokyo who love golf, always want to play, never play as often as they want...but not impartial to a beer (or two) !!! The net score is calculated in relation to the player's handicap. For example: • If you have a handicap of 18, your actual score on each hole will be reduced by 1 shot. • If you have a handicap of 27, your score on the nine hardest holes will be reduced by 2 shots and your score on nine easiest holes reduced by 1 shot. Once a player has a net score of two over par on that hole, they should pick up their ball as it is then not possible to score any points on that hole. They can then resume play on the next hole. At the end of the round, the number of points scored on each hole is totalled to give a final score. The winner of a Stableford competition is the player with the highest point total. Max Handicap: 36 for men and 40 for ladies
