How to Set Up a Stableford Game

What is and how to set up a Stableford game?

What is a Stableford game?

In Stableford format, you try and get as many points as possible.

On each hole, your score is translated into points.

  • Double bogey or worse = 0 points
  • Bogey = 1 point
  • Par = 2 points
  • Birdie = 3 points 
  • ... and so on

Stableford is great for golfers who have one or two blow up holes per round, because the worst possible score you can get is a zero.  It rewards aggressive play and can also help speed up the game, as any player who reaches double bogey can simply pick up their ball and take zero points.
