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?

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 hole 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.
