Calculation of GA Handicap

Best 8 of 20, Multiplied by 0.93 (already in effect)

To calculate a player’s GA Handicap, you do the following:

  • Firstly, identify their most recent 20 scores (which are clearly displayed on golflink.com.au)
  • Then average the Differentials from the best 8 of them (Differential is the calculation of the difference
    between the player’s score and the course rating; it is the value listed in the ‘Sloped Played To’ column on
    golflink.com.au)
  • Finally, you multiply this average by 0.93. The resultant figure is the player’s GA Handicap.
    Note Changed Differential (i.e. ‘Sloped Played To’) Calculation Process to be applied by GOLF Link
  • One extra step is to be added at the end of this process to account for Slope.
  • New Differential = Old Differential ÷ Slope Rating of Tees Played From x 113 (i.e. Neutral Slope Rating)
  • EXAMPLE: Gross Score of 95, Course Rating of 71, Slope Rating of 131 – Old Differential (i.e. ‘Played To’) = 24 (i.e. 95 – 71) – New Differential (i.e. ‘Sloped Played To’) = 20.7 (i.e. 24 ÷ 131 x 113)
