Course Rating™ and Measuring

The USGA Course Rating™ and Slope RatingⓇ system is the standard that the USGA Handicap SystemⓇ is built around. The USGA Course Rating system™ allows players to "play to their handicaps". The basis of the USGA Course Rating System™ are the factors that affect the playing difficulty of a golf course. The USGA Course Rating System™ is one of great detail and is the only recognized Rating System in the United States. The SC Golf Association has eight Course Rating™ Teams, trained and authorized by the guidelines set forth by the USGA Course Rating System™ to carry out the on-course portion of the rating process. Both course measurement and Course Rating™ services are free to SCGA Member Clubs. To find a course near you, click the button below.
