What is HoleRater?

HoleRater is an application for golf clubs/venue managers to calculate hole index ratings for golf courses, using stored player scores.


  • Standalone database application.
  • Set up required course–gender–tee colour combinations.
  • Enter hole-by-hole round data for golfers, either from your preferred scoring/handicapping application for the required course/s or… 

      for small amounts of data, from the keyboard. 

  • Choose from a number of calculation methods the one you wish to use.
  • Generate the hole indexes. 

Note: this is one of many possible displays, depending on choices in the Choose Hole Rating Display window.

  • Print reports or copy and paste hole index data into another document or application. 

  • Generate graphs showing hole rankings for different handicap groups.
  • Combine holes from separate courses to generate ‘composite’ course ratings, or plug in data for a ‘spare’ single hole to create temporary indexes.
  • Use a ‘try-before-you-buy’ demo version.
  • Experiment with real data in a trial version to test various options.
  • Comprehensive illustrated user manual provided. See User Manual Contents
