The course should be able to tell you the course rating and slope for each combination. Or, you can go to the USGA's course rating database to get the information you need. http://ncrdb.usga.org/NCRDB/

I think he's asking about the ranking of the holes for each combination of the three 9-hole courses (or actually 6 combinations, depending on the order played).

My understanding is that the handicap order for the front 9 holes are the odd numbers and the back 9 are the even numbers.  So if the card for your front 9 lists handicap 1-9 for those holes, they become 1,3,5, etc. The back 9 become 2,4,6, etc.

Or so I've heard.  But I didn't stay in a Holiday Inn last night, so ...

If that was the question, you're right.... From the USGA handicap manual 17-4. 27-Hole Courses Strokes should be allocated to each nine holes separately -- 1 through 9. When two nines are combined for a handicap competition, the odd stroke-hole allocations should fall on the nine holes considered the first nine, and the even stroke-hole allocations should fall on the second nine. The example below shows the stroke-hole allocation for two nines combined for a competition. In mixed competition, the separate 9-hole stroke allocations for men and women should be converted to separate 18-hole stroke allocations. (Exception, Section 9-3a.)

Note that the USGA handicap system ranks courses on 9 holes segments. Meaning, when you input your scores to get the handicap, it is done by 9 holes, not 18. From there the equations do the work. So just go to the USGA website and type in your course, it should have each 3 nine hole courses ranked.

• Difference in These Putters Besides Price?
You were given multiple answers, did you read them?  A Scotty Cameron 009 is a collectors item, they are only made for tour players in very limited production runs.  The 009 is based off the Newport head that most people could buy for \$350, but there are still differences between the two heads and again the 009 is a collectors item.   Most Anser style putters look similar but just because they look similar doesn't mean they are the same.  Putters are made with different types of steel, some are milled, others are cast, different tolerances are used.  If you look closely, which is why many of us think you're trolling, you can see there are obvious differences in how the putter is constructed.

If you honestly do not get it then I do not know how you have made it through to your old age.-Some things are worth more and your putter looks like a piece of junk. Stop pushing your value system on others.-If someone wants to spend a month paycheck on a putter good for them. If someone thinks your putter is not worth using as a fire poker good for them. But count me among those who do not think there was anything honest about this thread-Cuz if it was honest I have to wonder how you got through life to your 60s.

For the same types of reasons that this painting is worth \$87M to someone. Question for you: Why does the one car here cost 10x as much as the other?
