Course Rating Application
Information for Clubs Making Application
- Requests for Course Rating will be honored in the order received, subject to variations due to availability of rating teams in a particular area. Some backlog will be normal, but every attempt will be made to rate the courses in a timely manner. The average timeline is approximately 6 weeks out.
- USGA rating standards require permanent markers be set at each tee and the distances be measured by certain surveying equipment, electronic measuring device, or steel tape or chain. Actual airline measurement as stipulated by the USGA is of utmost importance. Measurement by wheel is not acceptable.
- Applications will be accepted on the basis of the charges shown below. In addition, the club or course being rated will be expected to furnish certain preliminary course rating data; golf carts and playing privileges on the course for the rating team will be without charge. Raters might not play the course on the day of the rating.
- Golf Professional and/or greens superintendent will be expected to furnish the rating team with additional local information as necessary.
- Upon confirmation by the Review Committee, your club will be furnished an official USGA Course/ Slope Rating Certificate and appropriate USGA Course Handicap Tables from the Texas Golf Association for the Men’s and Women’s ratings.
