Best Answer

For stableford, you use your handicap to determine which holes you get strokes on. Say for example you play off 18, you get a shot a hole. So the par on each hole in now effectively bogey (which will be your set score).

5 points - 3 under set score

4 points - 2 under set score

3 points - 1 under set score

2 points - set score

1 point - 1 over set score

0 points - 2 or more over set score.
