Golf Scoring

Golf Solitaire is all about speed. If you complete the game, your final score will be proportional to the time taken.

The Good Points

Moving a column card to the waste pile+100 Points
Clearing out a column (7 column game)+400 Points
Clearing out a column (6 column game)+460 Points

The Bad Points

Every second of elapsed time-1 Point 
Every time Undo is used-25 Points

Completion Bonus

A 5000 point Bonus is counting down at the rate of -10 every second. You are awarded this bonus if you win the game by clearing out all the columns (you need to clear out the stock too before you win, so don't forget to keep clicking on it when the columns have gone).

The maximum score for game rules using seven columns of five, is: (7 x 5 x 100 Points) + (7 x 400 Points) + 5000 Bonus = 11,300

or for game rules using six columns of six, is: (6 x 6 x 100 Points) + (6 x 460 Points) + 5000 Bonus = 11,360

The above scores are obviously impossible because the Bonus will have been reduced by time.
