1.MEDAL:
The actual number of shots played per hole is recorded on the scorecard.

1.1.Gross Medal: The
total number of shots played for the complete round (normally 18 holes)

1.2.Nett Medal:
The total number of shots played for the complete round minus your
handicap

The
Individual or team with the lowest total in both cases are the
winners.

2.STABLEFORD

I
have just read the explanation below and even I'm confused. In a nut shell
- say your handicap is 10, then you would score 3 points for a birdie, 2
for par, 1 for bogie and zero for anything worse on holes with a stoke of
11 to 18.

In
the above example - on holes with a stroke of 10 or less, then you'd score
4 points for a birdie, 3 for par, 2 for bogie, 1 for double bogie and zero
for anything worse. (If you don't get this read on and get more confused)

2.1.Stableford is a points scoring
system which is linked to both your handicap and the individual par rating
of each hole.

2.2.All holes on a golf course (18
holes) are rated from (Stroke) 1-18 in accordance with their level of difficulty.

2.3.Should your handicap be equal or
higher than the rating of the hole you deduct one shot and relate your
nett score to the point chart as shown below – noting down both
scores on the card. Eg. 5/2 , 4/3, etc.

2.4.Should your handicap be higher
than 18, you deduct 18 from your handicap and then may deduct two shots
from your score on the corresponding hole ratings

e.g.
Handicap 24

24 – 18 = 6

You
may now deduct 2 shots from each hole rated 6 and lower (1-6) and only one
shot from the remaining holes rated 7-18.

The
individual or team with the highest point score are the winners.

BASIC
GAMES AND SCORING PROCEDURES

As of 1st July 2007 the SAGA changed the rules
regarding handicap scoring. All players are permitted a limit of 2 over
par on a number of holes equal to his/her handicap and 1 over par on the
remainder of holes.

Handicaps
in excess of 18 are permitted 3 over par on the number of holes exceeding
18 and 2 over par on the rest.

For
e.g a 20 handicap golfer must score 3 par over on the first 2 holes that
they do not complete in 2 over par and then score 2 over par for the rest.
Stableford
–This points system was
introduced to golf as a scoring method which was fair to all, gave all
golfers a chance to be competitive and helped speed up play. Very simply,
Stableford relates your nett score to points. If you blow out on a hole,
the worst you get is 0 points. This makes for faster play as you may pick
up your ball when you no longer can score any points on the hole.

MEDAL
- In medal you play as many shots as it takes to complete a hole and if
you pick up your ball during an individual competition you will be
disqualified. For Better-Ball and Alliance medal competitions you should
pick up your ball, without disqualification, as soon as your cannot better
your partners score for the hole. For handicap purposes you mark your card
the same method as explained above.

point

BETTERBALL
STABLEFORD (2 Players per team)

Same
as above – then take the highest points on each hole e.g. player A=5/2
and player B=4/3 = 3

ALLIANCE
STABLEFORD (4 Players per team)

Best
score from 4 players to count on every hole e.g. Players A= 5/2 , B=4/3 ,
C=5/2 , D=6/1. Player B has the best score, playing the hole in 4 shots
for 3 points which is then recorded in the results column as the teams
score for that hole.

BETTERBALL
MULTIPLIER

The
two partners Stableford Points are multiplied after each hole e.g. Player
A scores 2 points and player B scores 3 points – the points are
multiplied resulting in a score of 6 for the hole.

Big
pressure not to get a ZERO!

Should
player A score 3 points and player B score 0 the result would then be 3 x
0 =0

EXPLANATION
OF GAMES

INDIVIDUAL
MEDAL

Every
shot to count, no rings (blackouts) – you must complete every hole
- This is how the pro's play most tournaments! eeeish!!

INDIVIDUAL
STABLEFORD

Each
player for himself. Play until you cannot score a point, then pickup. Ring
blow out holes

BETTERBALL
STABLEFORD

2
Players per team. Take the best score/points on each hole and enter in
result in column.

FOURBALL
ALLIANCE

4
Players combine as a team. Check the format – best 2 scores normally count on all holes etc.

AMERICAN
SCRAMBLE

Each
player in the 4 ball tees off and the best shot is chosen. All players
then drop at the best shot and play their second shot from there. (This is
quite popular for golf days as it speeds up play, but a golfer cannot use
this score for handicap purposes)
