Note: The ranking is based on the USGA Differential (Coeff) that a player would get when scoring a gross 80.

It does not necessarily reflect the actual degree of difficulty of a golf course, since it does not take on account course conditioning, tightness, etc.

The slope/rating system may not be, arguably, a true indicator of golf course difficulty.
