Scorecard & Ratings
The USGA Course Rating System™ is the standard upon which the USGA Handicap System™ is built. It affects all golfers in the calculation of a Handicap Index®. Players “play to their handicaps,” when their net scores (gross score-handicap strokes) equal the USGA Course Rating™.
The USGA Course Rating System takes into account the factors that affect the playing difficulty of a golf course.
Course Rating is a number that the USGA believes would be the number of strokes a “scratch” golfer would score on the course. The higher the Course Rating the more difficult the course — for a scratch golfer.
The USGA also rates each course with a Slope Rating. This number rates the course according to the play of an average golfer. The higher the Slope Rating the more difficult the course — for the average golfer. The USGA says a slope of 113 is average, and slopes can go from 55 to 155.
