Each participant receives their full handicap allowance, i.e. an 18 handicap golfer will receive one stroke per hole.

The stableford points scoring is as follows: Bogey = 1 Point / Par = 2 Points / Birdie = 3 Points / Eagle = 4 Points / Albatross = 5 Points

PRIZES
There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Gents and 1st, 2nd and 3rd Ladies.

The Castle Course, St Andrews – Team Scramble

The format of play over The Castle Course is Team Scramble.

RULES:
1. Each team consists of four players.
2. All players tee off at each hole.
3. The team then selects the best drive and marks the position (within 6 inches and not nearer the hole).
4. The other players then retrieve their balls.
5. The player whose ball has been chosen then plays his next shot first.
6. The remaining players then play within six inches of the tee peg (not nearer the hole). Note! Golf balls shall be placed on the fairway and dropped if the chosen ball in play is in the rough or a hazard.
7. The above method of play is followed until the green is reached.
8. On the green the same method applies. The ball chosen is marked by a putter head length and players putt from the same spot in turn.
9. Each player must mark the ball after putting. Play continues from each chosen position until the ball is holed.
10. The score is the total number of shots from the chosen spots (including the tee shot). Note! If a player putts and misses but then inadvertently knocks the ball into the hole, then that score counts.
11. A minimum of three tee shots per player are to be used.
12. The team handicap is calculated as 15% of the total of all team players handicaps combined. Ladies receive an extra shot due to the difference in the SSS between the gents and ladies tees.
13. At the end of the round the total for each hole is added together and the strokes received subtracted to give the total net score for the round. The winning team will be the one with the lowest score.

PRIZES
There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams.

The Jubilee Course, St Andrews – Am:Am (Team Best Ball), Teams of Four

The format of play over The Jubilee Course is “Team Best Ball”.

RULES:
1. Each team consists of four golfers.
2. Each golfer receives their full handicap allowance. Ladies receive 4 extra shots due to the difference in the SSS between the gents and ladies tees.
3. Each player on the team plays his or her own golf ball throughout the round, and on each hole the low score – or “best ball” – of the group serves as the team score. For example: On the first hole, Player A gets a 5, B gets a 4, C gets a 6, D gets a 6, so the team score for that hole is 4, because the low score of the group was B’s 4.

PRIZES
There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams.
