In Stroke Play (also known as Medal Play), the total number of strokes taken on each hole is counted for the cumulative total score. You can play it in Scratch (gross score) or with Handicaps (net score).
In Stableford, points are received for your score in relation to par. You can play Stableford in two different ways, regular or modified. In regular Stableford, you get the following points: eagle 4, birdie 3, par 2, bogey 1, DB or worse 0. In modified Stableford, you get the following points: eagle 5, birdie 2, par 0, bogey -1, DB or worse -3.
Duplicate is GameBook's own totally new fun game where you pick a random multiplier of 1, 2 or 3 and the multiplier is then applied to the Stableford points earned on each hole. The final hole is always worth double points. Try it out! You can also use Duplicate in a scramble and GameBook calculates the scores for you.
Erado is GameBook's own totally new fun game format where you can erase from your total score a selected number (up to 4 on an 18-hole round) of bad holes. The decision to erase must be made before playing the next hole. The final hole cannot be erased. Your Erado strategy will be key to mastering this game format!
Scramble is an all-time favorite for team golf outings! Each player in a group tees off on a hole. After each shot, the best shot is selected and all players play the next shot from that spot, until the ball is holed. One team score is recorded. With GameBook, you can play scramble with groups of two, three or four players. If you're going to play with a four-some, try a two-person scramble match!
Better Ball is one the most popular team games in golf. It is a two-person Best Ball (also known as Four Ball), where each player plays his or her own ball throughout the round, and on each hole the better score serves as the team score. If you're going to play with a four-some, try a Better Ball match!
Ready to rumble? GameBook has a four-person Irish Rumble available. It is a Best Ball format played with Stableford points where the best single score is recorded for the first six holes (1-6); the best two scores are recorded for the next six holes (7-12); the best three scores are recorded on the next five holes (13-17); and on the last hole (18), all four scores are recorded for the team. GameBook calculates scoring for you automatically so you can try it out!
In the mood for a friendly wager or bragging rights? In Skins, each hole carries a value that you choose (= Skins) and the winner of the hole wins that value. If the hole is tied, the Skin is carried over to the next hole, adding to the pot for the next hole. You can play Skins also without the carry-over. GameBook automatically calculates your hole-by-hole Skin standings.
In Best Ball, each player plays his or her own ball throughout the round, and on each hole 1 or 2 best scores serve as the team score. With GameBook, you can play Best Ball with groups of three or four players.
