# What is the origin of the golf terms 'ambrose' and 'stableford'?

Answer The Ambrose system was named by the secretary manager of the Victor Harbour Golf Club South Australia in honor of Richard and Mary Ambrose from Michigan,USA, …who lived in the area in the 1960s where they had pastoral interests. It was also called the shotgun game. The Ambrose's brought the game from their home club of Spring Valley Country Club in the US where it was called a different name, most like the shotgun game. The secretary of the Victor Harbour Club named the Australian version after Richard and Mary and it caught on when it was first played in a National Ambrose Competition at the Liverpool Club in Sydney in March 1974 for a prize of $5000. One of the winners of the first event was the professional Lindsay Sharp who had a chain of golf shops which he later sold to Ray Drummond.

# How do you calculate combination of system 36 and stableford in golf?

Answer Do you mean a 36 handicap? If so you would get 2 extra points per hole. Playing off scratch in a Stableford Competition you would get two points per hol…e if you completed the hole in par, one over par you would get 1 point. So a player with a 36 handicap would get four points for each hole you completed in par. For a Bogey on any hole you would get 3 points and for a Birdie you would get 5 points. The Rules on Stableford are readily available from your Golf Club Professional.

# How do you calculate your handicap in golf?

Instructions: Step 1 Play five rounds of 18-hole golf or take the scores from your last five rounds of 18-hole golf. The five rounds are what are commonly used… to calculate a handicap. If you were to take the scores from more or fewer than five rounds, there would be a different formula and it would not be as accurate. Step 2 Consult the scorecard or call the course clubhouse to find the rating and slope for each course you played during the five rounds. This might seem a little odd, but not every course is as easy as the next. You might shoot 5-under par at an easier course, but at Pebble Beach, you might shoot 15-over par. The difficulty of the course has to be taken into account to measure different golfers against each other. Step 3 Take the scores you shot at each course and subtract the golf course's rating from that number. Make sure to use the correct course rating for each score or your handicap will be skewed--and not necessarily in your favor. Step 4 Get the product of each of the five numbers you calculated in Step 3 multiplied by 113. The 113 is the universal number used for official U.S. Golf Association handicaps, although it might seem a little arbitrary. Step 5 Find what is commonly referred to as the golf differential by dividing each of the five numbers you have after steps 3 and 4 by the slope rating of the courses. Step 6 Take the lowest of the five numbers you calculated in Step 5 and multiply by "0.96." Once you have this number, disregard any decimals after the second number and this is your golf handicap.

# How do you calculate the winner of a stableford golf competition?

Stableford competitions use a points system to give a points value on each hole, which is then totalled at the end. Firstly a player will be given shots according to their han…dicap, say their handicap is 9 they will get shots on the holes with stroke index 1-9, on these holes they will get one shot added to par to get the fixed score, points are worked out as follows, 2 or more over fixed score- 0 points, 1 over fixed score- 1 point, fixed score- 2, 1 under fixed score- 3 points, 2 under fixed score- 4 points, 3 under fixed score- 5 and so on. 36 points is level with your handicap. The total is then calculated, and the person with the most points wins.

36 points is level your handicap.

# What is the highest points total in Stableford?

There would not be a record for this as such. It could be anything. Around 46 points would be the limit before that person is called a bandit, but I'm sure there has been peop…le shooting 50+ points. In fact in the quiet hills of Surrey, one legendary society -- notorious for their kitschy attire -- recently posted scores that counter arguments that shooting a 50+ score involves banditry behavior. Event winners Massie-Taylor and Townley, with day scores of 48 (fourball/better ball) and a staggering 48 (foursomes), were duly crowned the inaugural winners of the Collingwood trophy. Event organizer Bill Brass later commented "the course was ripe for a belter of a round today; I didn't expect two though. Hats off to the lads, shooting two 12 under rounds will take some beating". For more information on shooting 48 stableford points, please search under bandits, incorrect handicap, professional golf tutors, remote-control golf-balls and acts of god.

The highest number of points wins the competition. If it is a Medley then both Men and Women can compete in the round.
