Bogey, Par and Stableford Competitions

Conditions
Bogey, par and Stableford competitions are forms of stroke play in which play is against a fixed score at each hole. The Rules for stroke play, so far as they are not at variance with the following specific Rules, apply.

a. Bogey and Par Competitions
The scoring for bogey and par competitions is made as in match play. Any hole for which a competitor makes no return is regarded as a loss. The winner is the competitor who is most successful in the aggregate of holes.
The marker is responsible for marking only the gross number of strokes for each hole where the competitor makes a net score equal to or less than the fixed score.

Note 1: Maximum of Fourteen Clubs – Penalties as in match play – see Rule 4-4.

Note 2: One Caddie at Any One Time – Penalties as in match play – see Rule 6-4.

Note 3: Undue Delay; Slow Play (Rule 6-7) – The competitor’s score is adjusted by deducting one hole from the overall result.

b. Stableford Competitions
The scoring in Stableford competitions is made by points awarded in relation to a fixed score at each hole as follows:

Hole Played In                                                                       Points

More than one over fixed score or no score returned …………. 0

One over fixed score …………………………………………………….. 1

Fixed score …………………………………………………………………. 2

One under fixed score ………………………………………………….. 3

Two under fixed score ………………………………………………….. 4

Three under fixed score ………………………………………………… 5

Four under fixed score ………………………………………………….. 6

The winner is the competitor who scores the highest number of points.
The marker is responsible for marking only the gross number of strokes at each hole where the competitor’s net score earns one or more points.

Note 1: Maximum of Fourteen Clubs (Rule 4-4) – Penalties applied as follows: From total points scored for the round, deduction of two points for each hole at which any breach occurred; maximum deduction per round: four points.

Note 2: One Caddie at Any One Time (Rule 6-4) – Penalties applied as follows: From the points scored for the round, deduction of two points for each hole at which any breach occurred; maximum deduction per round: four points.
