Hole Difficulty Ranking Calculator

free golf tips, lessons, instruction, lower score

Do you find that you're giving away too many shots early or late in the round? Do you think the hole handicap difficulty rankings of the holes on your course are unfair?

I've developed a calculator that will determine the actual difficulty rankings for a course. The calculator is a Micro. Excel Worksheet. It will calculate the rankings, 1 thru 18, for different handicap groups
(0-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25+)

Once known, you'll be able to have much fairer matches. For example, it has been statistically verified that a low handicapper will win more matches than a high handicapper, partly due to the "official" hole rankings. Such a match, therefore, should be played using the real hole rankings for the high handicapper. This ranking identifies which holes are truly more difficult for that player.

To find out more information about the statistics of hole rankings,
click here.

All you need is some actual scores for your course. Input the hole scores for the last tournament, men's or ladies night at your course. The more scores, the better.

Download a sample worksheet HERE. You won't be able to input any values, but you'll see the layout of the worksheet and an explanation on how to complete it. If you have any questions, just email me.
