Slope Rating is the number which indicates the relative playing difficulty of a course for Bogey Golfers, compared to Scratch Golfers. It is the difficulty comparison between a Bogey Golfer and a Scratch Golfer from the same set of tees.

The use of Slope allows a player’s Handicap Index to be portable from course to course and country to country.

The Slope Rating is a key component in calculating the number of strokes each player receives to play a particular golf course. The higher the Slope Rating, the more additional strokes a Bogey Golfer will need to be able to play it.

Each golf course has a Slope Rating value between 55 and 155

The higher the slope, the more strokes a player is likely to receive Why is it important?

Slope Ratings are gender specific
