2024 IGA Course Rating Form

  • Course Rating Information

    The minimum length required for a Course Rating is 750 yards (9-holes) and 1,500 yards (18-hole course). The USGA is requiring that all tees be rated for men and all tees up to 6,000 yards, at a minimum are rated for women. In most cases each tee set will be rated for both men and women regardless of yardage assuming the minimum yardage requirement is fulfilled.
  • Note - The IGA may follow up with you to obtain details about each new tee listed here if yardage is not provided.
  • Based on mid-season conditions on a normal play day
  • Based on mid-season conditions on a normal play day
  • Under the new 2019 Rules of Golf a facility is allowed to designate areas of the golf course (such as native grass) as penalty areas through Local Rule. This allows the golfer to drop laterally from the area rather than having to proceed under stroke and distance for a lost ball. It essentially is a way to "mark" the area red without having to place stakes or paint lines on the ground.
  • Scorecard Images

    Please upload an image (jpg, gif, png, or pdf) of your scorecard that clearly displays the yardages for each hole and tee. If your card is two sided please attach each file separately in the side 1 and side 2 fields below. If your scorecard does not include a course map please upload an image of that as well and designate the hole numbers.
  • Please include any additional information about the golf course that you feel the IGA and Course Rating team should be aware of prior to their visit (new tee yardages, bunkers, penalty areas, etc.)
  • Agreement to Include Course Rating Fees
