Q I recently registered to your website and have not received my confirmation email, is something wrong?
A Registration confirmation emails are automatically sent and should be received within minutes. If you have not received yours then it's very likely that there's an error with the email address that you entered. Please check your email address is correct, if it is and you still cannot logon please send an email to support@elitegolfsolutions.co.uk quoting your name and email address and we'll check your registration details for you, normally within 2 hours.
  
Q My friend would like to obtain a handicap certificate but doesn't have access to the internet, can I do it on his behalf?
A Yes, of course you can. Assuming that your friend does not have an email address we can set up a dummy logon registration for you to use so that you can complete a subscription/handicap application on his behalf. Please write to support@elitegolfsolutions.co.uk providing your friend's name and we'll set one up for you, normally done within 2 hours.
  
Q How does the Stableford scoring system work?
A

Each player or side plays against the par of each hole and receives points according to how he scores in relation to par.

The scoring system is as follows, please note scores are Nett:

2 or more over par (Double-bogey) 0 points
1 over par (Bogie) 1 points
par 2 points
1 under par (Birdie) 3 points
2 under par (Eagle) 4 points
3 under par (Albatros) 5 points
and so on..  

The score is the nett score for each hole dependent on the player's handicap. The normal allowance under Stableford rule is 7/8ths of full handicap though it is becoming common practice for players to receive their full handicap allowance.

The nett score is calculated by taking strokes at the appropriate hole using the stroke index shown on the card. For example, an 18 handicapper will receive one shot on each hole, and a 28 handicapper would receive 2 shots on stroke indexes 1 to 10 and one shot on each remaining hole. If a player shoots a 5 on a Par 4 and has one shot on that hole then his nett score would be 4, resulting in a nett par giving them 2 points for that hole. If they had two shots on that hole then they'd have a nett birdie (5-2 = 3), resulting in 3 points.

Whereas medal play requires you to complete every hole, Stableford is points scored on each hole, so that if you take more than 2 over par nett on any hole you can pick your ball and record an NR, commonly referred to as a Blob. At the end of the round the points are tallied up. If a player plays to handicap then they would score 36 points, averaging 2 points (nett par) per hole

At the end of the 18 holes, the number of points gained at each of the holes is added up to give a total points score and the player with the most points wins. This type of scoring is more fun and allows each player to remain competitive throughout the round where as, in strokeplay, one bad hole can ruin the card.
