The USGA’s mark that indicates the evaluation of the playing difficulty for a course under normal setup and weather conditions. It is based on effective playing length and other obstacles to the extent that they affect the scoring difficulty of the golfer.
The course rating teams consist of a combination of AGA staff and volunteers. The process has become quite complex and requires individuals with an analytical nature. It generally takes a team of raters 3-4 hours to rate a course. Each hole is evaluated using the USGA Course Rating System guidelines from two different points of view. How does the hole play for a scratch player (a golfer with a Course Handicap of zero) and a bogey player (a golf with a Course Handicap of 20 for men or 24 for women). In essence they are trying to predict scoring for each of these groups of players.
The purpose of the USGA Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling players of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis. While the USGA developed the rules of the Handicap System and the formulas used in its calculation, it does not issue them directly to individual golfers. The USGA grants a license to utilize its system – either through an authorized golf association or an independent golf club. If a golf club or authorized golf association does not follow ALL of the procedures of the USGA Handicap System, it is not permitted to use ANY part of the System or to refer to any handicap that it issues or certifies as a “Handicap Index,” or as a handicap authorized by the USGA.The
