Rules of Irish Stableford:
Playing as a team of four, all players play out each hole as they would in an individual stableford event.
- On the first six holes (holes 1-6 inclusive), only the best stableford score of the four players is recorded.
- On the next five holes (holes 7-11 inclusive) only the best two stableford scores are recorded.
- On the next four holes (holes 12-15 inclusive, only the best three stableford scores are recorded.
- On the last three holes (holes 16-18 inclusive) all four scores are recorded.
Each player must ensure that his or her name and handicap are recorded on the card. The card is marked by any of the four players and countersigned by another member of the team.
NOTE: If a team consists of only three players, the "missing" fourth player will be credited with 2 Stableford points each for the last seven holes. However, the scoring still remains the same that for holes 12-15(inclusive), only the best three stableford scores are recorded and on the holes 16-18(inclusive) all four scores(including the "missing player's) are recorded.
