Solution / : Stableford Golf Scores

Does anybody have an application that calculates Stableford points from a golf score? I Don't want to reinvent the wheel...

I have a solution that does what you need. However there is a lot more than just stableford.

I use it for the group I belong to. It covers most games and needs quite a bit of initial data to work properly. There is not a lot of documention since I am the only user.

I've also done this, for a golf group. I believe Stableford is one of the easier ones (compared to say Syndicate or Nassau, which are a ****). As Jim says, you need a proper structure with date to score most games. In this case you especiallay have to know the Par for each hole. This is a calculation I have for Stableford. Your numbers may vary. As I said, I did such a solution for someone; but I had to have the games explained to me, as I've never played golf :-]

I did it in FileMaker 7. I could not (would not) do it in 6.

Case ( Score_gross > 0;

Case (

Par - Score_net ≤ -2; -3;

Par - Score_net = -1; -1;

Par - Score_net = 0; 0;

Par - Score_net = 1; 2;

Par - Score_net = 2; 5;

Par - Score_net = 3; 8;

Par - Score_net = 4; 11 )

)

Another note. Make sure you will be using stableford and not the modified stableford or as it is sometimes referred to as the International. USGA defines both but the results are quite different.

Hi Jim,

Like you, I will use this for a golf group that I belong to. I'm the handicapper. I will be recording stableford scores for every player for each of our tournaments, ranking the winners, calculating ESC scores (for handicapping purposes) and calculating an annual eclectic. Later I may also add calculation of handicaps. We don't use modified stableford, thats mostly only used by Pros. I would be interested in seeing your solution - I've neve seen anything in FM8 before, even though I have it installed.

thanks

Hi Fenton,

I'm doing it in V6, using simlar case staements as the one you show above. But with different points for par, bogie etc. What you have there is a modified stableford scoring system, but in principle it works exactly the same way, only that the points are different.

thanks

I would be glad to let you see it but even with no data the solution is about 10meg. I dont know how I could get it to you. By the way both methods are available in the solution. You mentioned something about calculating handicaps. I have a solution for that if you are interested.

Hi Jim,

10 meg without data?? Thats a monster.

I'm still working on mine, the stableford part is now finished, as well as equitable stroke control. If you have a handicap solution that I can integrate to it that would be great. FM6 would be nice, but if its in FM8 then I could convert my app to FM8 to integrate with the handicapping. I'll send you mine when its finished also.

I have 3 files - players (stores handicaps etc), rounds (stores hole by hole scores) and courses (course data such as slope etc). Total currently is around 250k. So I'm really curious what could bring your app up to 10 meg??

thanks

I put a lot of picture backgrounds and such in it. I just wanted to play. Since it is so big I could remove some of that to make it smaller. Even zipped it is still large and I do not know if this forum is the place to to get it to you. I have been looking around and cannot find any size limitations. Anyone out there have an idea?
