Course Handicap Formula & Calculator
Handicap Index® multiplied by Slope Rating® of tees played, divided by Standard Slope Rating (113) = Answer (rounded to nearest whole number, .4 rounds down and .5 rounds up)
Example: 10.4 Handicap Index x 125 Slope Rating / 113 Standard Slope Rating = 11.5 = 12 Course Handicap
So in this case for New Kuta Golf Blue Tees with a HCP Index of 9.0 Playing off of NKG Blue Tees Slope rating 132
9 x 132 =1188 /113 = 10.51 thus you would be playing off of 11 at NKG Blue
