Stableford Format

Stableford is commonly used in the monthly events organised by MEGS.

Based on the course handicap of the player and the stroke index of a hole, a player will score stableford points for each hole. (It involves scoring points based on results at each hole.) Unlike traditional scoring of stroke play, where the objective is to achieve a low score, in Stableford format, the objective is to achieve a high score.
The system was developed by Dr. Frank Barney Gordon Stableford (1870–1959). It was first used informally at Penarth, Wales, in 1898, and first used in competition at Wallasey, England, in 1932.

Before play starts, players should adjust the par strokes of each hole on the course to their handicap. For example, a player with a handicap of 18, would increase the par on every hole by one. A player with a handicap of 16, would increase the par on the holes with index 1 to 16 by one only. For player with handicap of 22, would increase the par on holes with index 1 to 4 by two and other holes by one.

The points scoring method adopted by MEGS is as following:

* 0 points - 2 strokes or more over your adjusted par
* 1 point - 1 stroke over your adjusted par
* 2 points - Your adjusted par
* 3 points - 1 stroke under your adjusted par
* 4 points - 2 strokes under your adjusted par
* 5 points - 3 strokes under your adjusted par
* 6 points - 4 strokes under your adjusted par

If you reach 2 strokes over your adjusted par, you may pick up your ball as you cannot do any better or worse and resume play on the next hole except that you are a contender for best gross. At the end of the round, all points scored are added for each nine holes and totaled for the eighteen. The player with the most stableford points is declared the winner.
The stableford competition has one major advantage. It allows you have one or two bad holes, and compensate for them in the other holes. In the bad holes, you may not get any points and the strokes will not be counted. (This is because you would achieve no points on these holes rather than gaining many strokes as you would playing Stroke Play.) If you achieve a Stableford score of 36, it would mean that you have played (precisely) generally to your handicap.
