Course Rating


Course Slope Rating
GA Men; Blue Plates (This is the one you play on Medal days) 124
GA Men; White Plates (Normal Saturday/ Wednesday Competition off Blue Markers) 122
GA Men; Black (Par 3 Course) 94
GA Women; Red Plates 114

The course you play on the day will determine what Slope rating you use to determine your ‘Daily Playing Handicap’.

You will have noticed that your daily playing handicap and your GA handicap are not the same.

Your daily playing handicap is calculated following this formula:

GA Handicap  x  Slope Rating  /  113

For example, If your GA Handicap is 16.2 and you are playing in the Medal round – with a slope rating of 124, you would calculate your daily playing handicap as follows:

16.2   x   124  /  113   =   17.7

Your GA handicap is calculated the same except now the slope rating is also drawn in to the equation in identifying the ‘played to’ value attcahed to a players’ round.
