Slope Rating

What is the Slope Rating?

Not all golf courses are created equal. Some courses are far more difficult than others. The variance in difficulty is what led golf course raters to develop a system that can be used to determine just how difficult a course is.

The slope rating is a calculation based on the expected performance of a “Bogey” player in relation to a “Scratch” player.

There is a separate slope rating for each of the different tee boxes on every course. The average slope rating of a golf course is typically 113. If the slope of a golf course is less than 113, the course is easier than the average golf course. The slope rating at Javea is 128 off the white tees.
