White tees     70.6          95.2

Slope Rating
Slope Rating represents the relative difficulty of a course for a bogey golfer (20 handicap) compared to a scratch golfer (0 handicap).
A course with long carries, narrow fairways, lots of hazards and thick rough will have a high slope rating because these features are more of a challenge to bogey golfers. Slope Rating can be anywhere between 55 and 155. 113 is the neutral value that is used in handicap calculations. The GB&I average Slope Rating is 125.

Puckrup Hall's Slope Ratings are:
   18 Holes  9 Holes (Front)  (Back)
White tees 133   138      127
Yellow tees 124   124      123
Red tees 126   126      126

A golfer's handicap for a specific course is determined by multiplying their Handicap Index by the Slope Rating of the course/tees and dividing by the neutral Slope Rating of 113. For example, from the tees at Puckrup Hall, Course Handicaps are calculated as follows:
For a player with Handicap Index 12 playing at Puckrup
(Handicap Index X Slope) /113 = Course Handicap so (12 X 133) / 113 = 14.1 
(Handicap Index X Slope) /113 = Course Handicap so (12 X 124) / 113 = 13.1
(Handicap Index X Slope) /113 = Course Handicap so (12 X 126) / 113 = 13.4

There will be conversion charts available at each golf club and Apps for your phone, so the good news is that you won't need to do the calculations yourself !!!
