CSGA Course Rating Teams rate 25 to 30 courses per year.
The CSGA Member Clubs are rated once every ten years, earlier if the course has undergone significant renovations. Per USGA guidelines, new courses are rated once every three years for nine years until mature.
The men’s course rating teams are broken into two regions (North and South) with both regions employing a course rating captain. With assistance from the CSGA, the Connecticut Women’s Golf Association (CWGA) and the Southern New England Women’s Golf Association (SNEWGA) conduct ratings from all women’s tees.
When a golf course is rated, the rating team, using a prescribed USGA methodology, evaluates the overall difficulty of the golf course by taking into account the 10 obstacles and effective length corrections on every hole. They give a numerical evaluation of all obstacles on each hole – topography, fairway, green target, recovery and rough, bunkers, out of bounds, water, trees, green surface, and psychology – and use those numbers to calculate a rating.
