A female scratch golfer is an Amateur player who can hit tee shots and average of 210 yards and can reach a 400 yard hole in 2 shots.

CLUB COURSE HANDICAP Indicates the number of strokes a golfer receives from a specific set of tees, for example, black, blue, white, red, or yellow, to adjust her playing score to the level of a Scratch Golfer. A player’s handicap is approximately equal to the average number of strokes it takes her above the SSS (Standard Scratch Score) of the course. The SSS is the number of strokes it takes a Scratch handicap to complete the course.
Golf is a gentleman’s – or ladies, game and the USGA system works as much on the honour and integrity of the golfer [as it has always done] as it does on a well-crafted system of peer review and stern punitive measures which the Handicap Managers can mete out.
Golfers are required to submit all scorecards. Failure to do so can be easily verified by checking the Starter’s Register.
A golfer’s playing partners will have a good idea of her playing ability. When her handicap seems incongruent to her level of play, members may inform the Committee in writing, which can then choose to review the player’s playing record and take appropriate measures.
The reason a player’s handicap comes down though she may not have played to her handicap is because our C.R. and S.R. are so high. It takes a Scratch Golfer 2.5 more strokes to play the course. This technically means that if your play your handicap, you have actually played 2 strokes under!! So your handicap is adjusted accordingly.

Course Rating Measures the playing difficulty of a course for a Scratch Player under normal playing conditions. It makes the c game fairer for all as on a more challenging course a player is given more strokes. Our C.R. from the Red Tee Markers off which we play our competitions is 74.5. This means that a Professional Golfer would take 74.5 strokes from the Red Tee Markers. This indicates our course from the Red Tee Markers is a high level of difficulty.
Slope Rating Measures the playing difficulty of a course for Bogey Golfers (it is 24 strokes for women on a course of standard difficulty) as compared to a Scratch Golfer. Our S.R. from Red Tee Markers is 123, indicating that it is more difficult than average for a -24 handicap golfer.
