ACR (AUSTRALIAN COURSE RATING)

Similar... but not identical to... a USGA, RCGA or R&A course rating. Used in Australia only. It is a figure (close to par for the course) used in handicap calculations. It is assigned by the local course supervisor.

The Australian course rating never changes. But AGU (Australian Golf Union) handicaps are based upon the "Calculated Course Rating" (CCR) which is the ACR adjusted once or twice each day based upon actual score cards being turned in that day. The CCR for a given course and tee may vary a stroke or two from the ACR depending upon weather and turf conditions as reflected by the performance of a sufficient sampling of competitors.

If the course is playing a bit easier than normal on a given day, the CCR will shrink. If the course is playing a bit harder than normal on a given day, the CCR will swell.

AMCR is the ACR specifically used by male golfers.
