The Player Amateur Tour’s Ability Rating System allocates an Ability Rating to each Tour Member, which allows golfers of differing abilities to compete against one another in three different divisions which results in an equitable playing ability, regardless of your handicap, where you live, or when or where you play.

The Rating System assumes that you will endeavor to make the best score you can at each hole in every 18-hole or 9-hole round you play and that you will post such round to determine your playing ability, regardless of where or when the round is played. The purpose of the Rating System is to:

- Provide a fair playing ability division for all Tour Members (not a handicap)

- Reflect your inherent ability (potential) as well as your recent scoring trends.

- Adjust your playing division as your scoring ability changes.

- Disregard freak high scores that bear little relation to the player’s normal ability.

- Establish a playing ability section for all golf been played, from championship eligibility to informal golf rounds.


Once a Player Ability Rating has been issued, you will be divided into the appropriate division as follows:

A Up to 5.9
B 6.0 – 11.9
C 12 and above

The playing ability rating represents your average score differential between PAR and your POTENTIAL FOR SCORING when you are playing at your best. This rating number represents your level of play, your potential best scoring number over par.

Leaderboard Points

Your performances are measured by your playing ability differential based on the 18-hole or 9-hole scores you posted, which is determined by algorithms based on all your golf scores and not only his best golf scores posted.

Leaderboard Points are awarded based on the number of strokes over/under par of a player’s net scores (after deduction of your playing ability rating).

The Tour’s proprietary COALA technology also use algorithms that considers wind conditions, rain, temperature, altitude, humidity and the length of each hole played when calculating Leaderboard Points.

All Tour members must upload at least three 18-hole scores in order to begin earning Leaderboard Points.

Members have a full season to earn Leaderboard Points and may post as many scores during that timeframe as they would like.

Only the top 5 scores will count toward player standings.

Once three 18-hole scores have been uploaded, members may begin posting 9-hole scores as well.
