Best Answer

Slope rating is the difficulty of the Golf course. The higher the rating, then the more difficult one should have. The greens are faster, the course is hilly, and there are many more bunkers.

Pine Valley Golf Club in New Jersey has a slope rating of 155 (out of a possible 155) from the championship tees.

Please see relSlope 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.ated link.

The slope rating scale goes from 55 to 155 and is a measure of a courses diffictulty and used to calculate a players handicap index and course handicaps. The lower the rating, the lower the difficulty of the course. The average slope rating is around 113.

probably a 24 too... no more then 25.

The difficult level in its gradient. The Slope system addresses the problem of portability of handicaps by adjusting a player's USGA Handicap Index according to the relative difficulty of the golf course being played. Courses are rated according to the relative difficulty for both the scratch and the bogey golfer. Slope Rating is based on the performance of the bogey golfer as defined by the USGA.

72.1/131

In the UK it would depend on the CSS/SSS and par of the course. In the states I think it goes on par for the course and the slope rating. 82 consistently would put you in the 10-12 or so category.

It's probably unlikely that the 25 handicapper will shoot that many under their handicap, but you never know. Depends if they are regularly shooting better than there handicap. Anything can happen in golf.

Depends what the standard scratch or slope rating is, could be +1 - +4.

Instructions:Step 1Play five rounds of 18-hole golf or take the scores from your last five rounds of 18-hole golf. The five rounds are what are commonly used to calculate a handicap. If you were to take the scores from more or fewer than five rounds, there would be a different formula and it would not be as accurate.Step 2Consult the scorecard or call the course clubhouse to find the rating and slope for each course you played during the five rounds. This might seem a little odd, but not every course is as easy as the next. You might shoot 5-under par at an easier course, but at Pebble Beach, you might shoot 15-over par. The difficulty of the course has to be taken into account to measure different golfers against each other.Step 3Take the scores you shot at each course and subtract the golf course's rating from that number. Make sure to use the correct course rating for each score or your handicap will be skewed--and not necessarily in your favor.Step 4Get the product of each of the five numbers you calculated in Step 3 multiplied by 113. The 113 is the universal number used for official U.S. Golf Association handicaps, although it might seem a little arbitrary.Step 5Find what is commonly referred to as the golf differential by dividing each of the five numbers you have after steps 3 and 4 by the slope rating of the courses.Step 6Take the lowest of the five numbers you calculated in Step 5 and multiply by "0.96." Once you have this number, disregard any decimals after the second number and this is your golf handicap.

no they forbidden but you can turn the slope function off and use it

well it is considered a relatively high handicap in golf, this means the individual would likely average around 93 for all his rounds of golf. one must include slope and rating of the course when calculating a handicap, all handicap calculating programs calculate slope and rating for you. please keep in mind this came from a scratch handicap (0) and that the average golfer shoots 106 in his average round so think of it as your already better than average!!!!
