Each player or team plays against the par of each hole and receives points according to how he/she scores in relation to par. Handicaps are factored in as per match play.
The scoring system is as follows:
2 or more over par – 0 points
1 over par – 1 point
Par – 2 points
1 under par – 3 points
2 under par – 4 points
3 under par – 5 points
At the end of the 18 holes, the number of points gained at each of the holes is added together to give a total points score.
