Player’s USGA Handicap Index
Thanks to the USGA Handicap System, all golfers can compete on an equal basis. A Player’s USGA Handicap Index compares the player’s scoring ability to the scoring ability of an expert amateur on a course of standard difficulty. The Index indicates a golfer’s skill and comes in the form of a number taken to one decimal place, e.g. 11.6. A player posts his scores along with the appropriate USGA Ratings to make up his scoring record. A Handicap Index is computed from no more than 20 scores in the scoring record. It reflects the player’s potential because it is based upon the best scores posted for a given number of rounds, ideally the best 10 of the last 20 rounds. The basic premise underlies the USGA Handicap System, namely that every player will try to make the best score he can at each hole in every round he plays, regardless of where the round is played, and that he will post every acceptable round for peer review.
Walnut Run Golf Course Rating
Gold Tee 72.5, Black Tee 70.1, Blue Tee 68.9, Silver Tee 67.7
USGA Course Rating is the USGA’s mark that indicates the evaluation of the playing difficulty of a course for scratch golfers under normal course and weather conditions. It is expressed as strokes taken to one decimal place, and is based on yardage and other obstacles to the extent that they affect the scoring ability of a scratch golfer.
Walnut Run Golf Course Slope Rating
Gold Tee 126, Black Tee 122, Blue Tee 115, Silver Tee 109
USGA Slope Rating is the USGA’s way of measuring the relative difficulty of a course for players who are not scratch golfers compared to the Course Rating (i.e. compared to the difficulty of the course for scratch golfers). The lowest Slope Rating is 55, and the highest is 155. A golf course of standard playing difficulty has a USGA Slope Rating of 113.
