## Course handicap formula

The formula for calculating a course handicap is as follows:

**CH = HI x(SR / 113 ) + (CR – par)**

Where:

- CH = Course handicap
- HI = Handicap index = The handicap index is a measure of a player’s potential ability
- SR = Slope rating = slope rating indicates the relative difficulty of a course for different levels of players
- CR = Course rating
- Par = number of strokes a golfer
- The number 113 is a constant representing the standard slope rating.

## How to Calculate Course Handicap?

To calculate a course handicap, you need to know the player’s handicap index and the course’s slope rating

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

- Determine the player’s handicap index
- Obtain the course’s slope rating:
- Use the following formula to calculate the course handicap: Course Handicap = (Handicap Index x Slope Rating) / 113
- Round the course handicap to the nearest whole number to obtain the final value.

## Solved Example

Example: let’s say a player has a handicap index of 12.2 and is playing on a course with a slope rating of 128:

Course Handicap = (12.2 x 128) / 113 = 13.84

Rounding the course handicap to the nearest whole number gives a final value of 14.
