Kyabram Parkland Golf club

15th March, 2012

Course Rating Seminar 6th June Bendigo

 Friday, May 21, 2010

Course Rating Seminar - Bendigo 6th June

The VGA and WGV will be conducting a Course Rating Seminar in Bendigo, on Sunday the 6th June, 2010.

The seminar will run most of the day, and further details will be provided to those who indicate an interest in learning how to rate a golf course as per the USGA system.

Mr Murray Cropley will be providing information at the seminar, and it is hoped that each district will then be able to form their own rating teams. This will then allow district teams to rate courses in their own district, and have us well prepared for the introduction of the complete handicapping system.

For those who can make it, the rating team is possibly rating Bendigo Golf Club on the Monday after the seminar, and Neangar park on the Tuesday, these ratings are yet to be  confirmed.

After the seminar, it is hoped that we can put together an infomation pack for all clubs, on what the course rating team would like the course to do, to make the rating session quicker, easier and smoother. When the club has done the pre-requisites, we hopefully may be able to put together a timetable for all courses in the area to be rated.

Background Information

The course ratings be calculated over three markers for most courses, Blue, White and Red.

It is assumed that a male Scratch golfer will hit his drive 230 YARDS and have 20 YARDS of roll. A male Bogey golfer (handicap 20) will drive 180 YARDS off the tee, and have 20 YARDS of roll. A Scratch golfer will then hit his next shot 200 YARDS and have 20 YARDS of roll, a Bogey golfer will hit his second shot a maximum of 150 YARDS and 20 YARDS of roll , 170 YARDS in total. A Scratch golfer is expected to reach a 470 YARD hole in 2 shots, and a Bogey golfer reach a 370 YARD hole in 2 shots. You may ask why the YARDS are in capital letters, this is to make the point that all measurements are in YARDS for the USGA Course rating system, not metres.

At each point where a shot lands or is be made, 12 items are taken into account to determine the rating of the hole.
If you are interested in learning more, could you please contact Graeme Stevens on email, or ring 03 54824910 AH.

Numbers are filling fast and are limited, so please contact me asap if you wish to participate.
