Rules of Handicapping FAQs

The Golf Course

Q. Who provides the Course Rating and Slope Rating for each golf course?

A. The local Allied Golf Association, with support from the USGA, is responsible for training volunteers and conducting the on-course rating of all golf courses within their jurisdiction.

The Course Rating System is the foundation of the World Handicap System, and without the dedication of the Allied Golf Association staff and volunteers, the system would not function successfully.
