The United States Golf Association (USGA) creates a rating for each golf course, and this rating is available online. The rating takes into account how long the course is and how many obstacles are on the course. Both of these measures go into how difficult the course is. The USGA's ratings are comprised of a bogey rating and a scratch rating, and these two ratings are used in the slope calculation for the golf course.

## Instructions

- 1
Go to the USGA website.

- 2
Search for your golf course. For example, search "Augusta Country Club" and click on the link.

- 3
Find the course rating and bogey rating applicable to you. In the example, the gold tee is a 73 course rating and a 97.4 bogey rating.

- 4
Subtract the course rating from the bogey rating. In the example, 97.3 minus 73 equals 24.3.

- 5
Multiply the result by either 5.381 if you are a man or 4.24 if you are a woman. In the example, assume the slope rating is for a man, so 24.3 times 5.381 equals a slope rating of 103.7583.
