Golf Scorecard

On May 7 of this year I went to the golf course for the first time as a retiree. In the nearly 3 months since I started playing I have completed 45 rounds. I have walked 43 of those 45 rounds. We track how far we walk each day either with a Fitbit or iPhone App called RunKeeper and it averages out to over 5 miles a round especially tracking with the FitBit. We usually walk a round in 3 hours.

Not only am I doing a lot of walking the past 12 weeks but I have used a lot of golf scorecards.

Cover of Scorecard

I have begun to notice that different players use a variety of methods to keep score. Most of the differences occur based on how they are playing. A few examples include:

Basic Stroke Play

Pretty straightforward here. Just count the number of strokes you’ve taken on the hole just completed, and write that number down in the box corresponding to that hole.

Stroke Play -Tracking Birdies-Eagles-Pars-Bogeys-Double Bogeys

This method tracks what score you made on each hole by using circles to represent a score below-par and the squares for a score that is above-par hole. A score that is neither circled nor squared is a par. Not a fan because I make a lot more bogeys than birdies. My card would be pretty circle free.

Tracking Stats during a golf round

This is something I see one of the guys I play with regularly doing. The stats most commonly kept on a scorecard are number of putts, fairways hit, and greens hit in regulation. Another stat that a buddy keeps is up and downs. That stat measures when you have not hit the green in regulation but still manage to get a par.

I played one time with a guy who tracked every shot he hit inside of 100 yards.

Stableford System

On a beach golfing trip many years ago an entire round was dedicated to using Stableford scoring system. The point values used in Stableford are found in the Rules of Golf under Rule 32

Simply put Stableford points are awarded for each hole as follows
