RCGA (Golf Canada) Rating and Slope Rating
For those who might not know what Course Rating and Slope Rating mean, the following is a description from the RCGA web site.
The RCGA Course Rating System consists of two basic elements:
RCGA Course Rating – the evaluation of the playing difficulty of a course for scratch golfers under normal course and weather conditions expressed as number of strokes (e.g. 72.5).
RCGA Slope Rating – the evaluation of the relative difficulty of a course for players who are not scratch golfers compared to the difficulty of the course for scratch golfers. The lowest Slope Rating is 55 and the highest 155. A course of standard playing difficulty will have a Slope Rating of 113.
