HOW TO FILL IN A SCORECARD

Stableford

Those of us who have the responsibility of checking scorecards often find it very difficult to work out where the relevant information is actually shown on the card. We realise that our scorecards are more complicated than some and therefore, we have put together a card showing how we would like to see the information displayed for a stableford competition. The main point would be to keep the card as clear and simple as possible.

We must have the competition name and date on the card. The time is sometimes useful so that we can check on the start sheet. Incidentally, you are not, on your own account, allowed to change the details on the start sheet. In other words, you should not a) swap your tee time with another group or b) change individual players within groups unless you are directly instructed so to do. Please ensure that you indicate which tees are being used (particularly in midweek competitions).

Please ensure that you use both first and surnames of all players. The player whose card it is, must be "Player A ". His/Her handicap must be shown . If the handicap shown is higher than the player's actual handicap, the player will be disqualified. We also need the marker's name in the space labelled "Marker's Name" . The 3rd (and 4th) player in the group can be named as "Player B" (and "C"). Again this is a useful check. Please print all this information in a legible manner. I also suggest that you use a pen, as pencil is often difficult to read. 

The player's gross scores (What they actually score) must be recorded in Row A . Their Stableford points should be shown in the row marked "S'ford". If the marker is unsure how to work out Stableford points, he/she should leave this row blank. It is again useful for checking if the marker records his/her gross scores in the row labelled "Marker" (no other) . As there is no specific space for the marker's points, they should also be placed in the same row. You may use the row labelled "Net" for marking Player A's Net scores but this is not mandatory. Do not use rows B or C. It is the duty of the marker to count the shots of the player being marked and not just accept what they say.The Marker should record the scores during the play of the round. However, this should not be done on or around the green . Also, if the Marker has the honour and it is safe to play, he/she should mark the card after playing their tee shot .

If the Marker makes a mistake, they should correct their mistake and initial the correction . Preferably, we like to see the total Stableford points in the correct box.

Both the player and the marker must sign the card . The penalty for failure to do so is disqualification of the player.

When you come in, put your gross scores on the computer. Check that everything corresponds with your card and check that it has been correctly signed. Then place in the box beside the computer.

If the Marker makes a mistake, they should correct their mistake and initial the correction. The Total Gross Score should be calculated and written in the box labelled "Gross ". The player's playing handicap should be written in the next box and subtracted from the Gross Score to give the "Nett" result .

Both the player and the marker must sign the card . The penalty for failure to do so is disqualification of the player. If the gross score on any hole is lower than it should be, the player will be disqualified.
