How to play ambrose
At least one tee shot of each team member must be used in the nine holes. Once the tee shots are played, the team selects the ball from where they wish to play their next shot from. The selected ball may be marked. Each team member then plays their next shot within one club length of the selected ball. The process is repeated for each shot, with the best positioned ball being selected. Once on the green the selected ball is marked and each putt is taken from within 15cm of that spot. The total numberof strokes is entered on the scorecard together with the initials of the team member.

How to play stableford
The traditional way to calculate the number of stableford points scored on each hole is to compare the player’s net score foreach hole (i.e. taking their handicap and the stroke index for the hole into account) against the fixed par score. Once a player has taken two strokes more than the adjusted fixed score, they should pick up their ball, as it is then not possible for them to score any points on that hole. Forexample, aplayer who receives a handicap stroke on a par-4 hole should pick-up once they have had six strokes, as they cannot then score any points for that hole. The winner of a stable ford competition is the player with the highest points total.
