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 staff and volunteers for 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.
