**Strokeplay**

The score is kept by adding the cumulative total of strokes taken throughout the round. In stroke play, the golfer counts each stroke taken on a hole, until the ball is in the cup. Those strokes are written down on the scorecard. At the end of the round, the strokes taken on each hole played are added together for the total strokes. (see Medal)

**Medal**(Full Handicap)

A stroke play events in which a player's handicap is deducted from the gross score to determine the player's score.

**Medal and Star**

Played as a medal round. In addition,as a secondary competition, each tee-shot that comes to rest on the green earns a "star". The winner is the player with the most stars at the end of the round. in the event of a tie, the prize is shared.

**Casino Medal (full handicap).**

Players record their gross score on each hole, as in a medal. On three holes a player can “play a joker”. The score on that hole is halved, fractional scores to be logged.

(Examples of playing a joker: A gross score of 4 is recorded as a 2; a gross 3 is recorded as 1½). Jokers must be declared before play is started on the hole and be clearly marked on the scorecard. Halves will be added into the aggregate and should the aggregate result in an odd ½, then this is to be rounded down to the lower whole number.

Handicaps are then deducted from the accumulated resulting gross score.

**Stableford**(Full handicap)

A strokeplay event using full handicaps where points are earned by the

**net**score on each hole: at Charlton, 1 pt for net 4, 2 pt for net 3, 3 pt for net 2 and 4 pt for net 1. The maximum points one one hole is 4.

**Casino Stableford**

A stableford round in which each player is allowed to declare a “joker” before starting on a particular hole. When a joker is played the player's resulting points earned for that hole are doubled. The number of jokers allowed during the round is determined by the organisers.

**Quota**

Players start with a "quota" of points equal to their handicap. The quota is incresed by the result of the player's

**score on each hole. 4 pts is added for an Eagle, 3 pts for a Birdie, 2 pts for a Par and 1 point for a Bogie. The player with the highest quota at the end is the winner.**

__GROSS__**Matchplay**(See Handicap allowance)

Match play is a scoring system for golf in which a player, or team, earns a point for each hole in which they have beaten their opponents. Match play scoring consists of individual holes won, halved or lost. The player or team winning the most holes wins the match.

**One Club (**full handicap)

Each player is allowed to carry and use one club of his/her choice and a putter throughout a medal round. On the cut surface of the green, the putter must be used. Elsewhere on the course he/she may choose which of the 2 clubs is used.

**Split Sixes**(Full handicap)

A game for 3 players. Players take their shots at the appropriate holes indicated by the SI on the scorecard. Each players net score on each hole governs the result of each hole. Instead of winning holes, six point are up for grabs at each hole. If someone wins it outright then they get 4 points, the second best score gets 2 points and the third zero. If one person won the hole and the other two halved then it would be 4-1-1. Two players halving and beating the third 3-3-0. If 3 players tie the hole the score is 2-2-2. Total points for the round determines the winner.

**Pairs Competition**Played in teams of 2 as in fourball. Both players play each hole until each player holes out. The teams score is the lower of the 2 individual gross scores. The team's gross total score is reduced by the team's handicap.

The team's handicap is the result of 9/10 of the team's average. (Halve the sum of the handicaps and deduct 10% (1 tenth) or 45% of their total joint handicap)

Example : 10+17= 27. Halved =13.5. Subtract 10%, 13.5 - 1.35=12.15 . rounded to 1 decimal place =12.2. Fractional handicaps are used.

**Flags**(Full handicap)

In a Flags tournament, all golfers begin the round with a set number of strokes (Par + their handicaps), and they play until their stokes run out. The player who makes it farthest round the course on his or her allotment of strokes is the winner. The flag is used to mark the resulting position of the final shot.

**Medal and Put**(full Handicap)

Each player records his gross score on each hole and the number of puts taken on each green. To count, a put is a stroke made with any club while a ball rests on the green's cut surface. Using a putter anywhere else on the course does not count as a put. Handicaps are applied to gross score to get the medal result.

Essentially this is 2 events in one, best medal score and fewest puts.

**Daytona:**

Played in teams of 2. At each hole players record their NET score. If one gets a par or lower, the team score is lower followed by higher score. If both fail to get a par or lower, the team score is higher then lower score.

*For Example*: At Charlton,

A player has a net score of 3, his partner has a 5. Team score 35 for that hole.

Next hole a player has a net score of 4 and his partner 6. Team score 64.

Add up 18 scores for the team total.

**Bring a calculator !!!**Par for the round is 594, all teams should beat it.
