Course & Slope Rating
Standard Scratch Score (SSS) will be known Course Rating and will be calculated to the nearest 0.1. The Slope Rating factors in the relative difficulty of the course for a bogey golfer compared with a scratch golfer. From the white tees at Mapperley the Course Rating is 71.2 and the Slope Rating is 127:

Course & Playing Handicap
Your handicap will be different at each course and according to which set of tees you play from. The higher the Slope Rating, the higher your Course Handicap. Handicap allowances (e.g. 95% for singles and 85% for better-ball) are applied to the Course Handicap to give your Playing Handicap:
