Please book your games via www.theplazagolfsociety.com.
We use system master scoreboard for points and handicaps and this is updated after every game. This can be found on a link on the plaza website. www.theplazagolfsociety.com
The ‘base’ score in stableford is CSS so anyone scoring CSS is considered to be at Par and won't get cut.
CSS is 34 points
Those scoring above the CSS will be cut according to their handicap level and is as follows:
0 -5 cut by 0.1 shot per one above the CSS points therefore anyone scoring 36 will be cut 0.2
6 -12 cut by 0.2 shots per one point above the CSS points… So golfer scores 36 which is 2 above, he will cut by 2 x 0.2 = 0.4
13-20 cut by 0.3 shots per one point above CSS….36 points = 0.6
21 and above cut by 0.4 shots per one point above CSS….. 36 points = 0.8
The committee reserve the right to add a rule or change an existing rule that deems to be in the best interest for the society and that decision is final.
