About Stableford Scoring

When you select the Stableford scoring method (Setting the Scoring Method), points are awarded based on the number of strokes taken relative to par. At the end of a round, the highest score wins. The device awards points as specified by the United States Golf Association.

The scorecard for a Stableford scored game shows points instead of strokes.
