Curious about course slope ratings, my course from the old guy tees is rated 146, how does this compare to other member courses ?

Wow… that’s difficult.  My home course from my tees at 6,300 is 124. From the back tees at 7,200 is 133 and I’ve never  tried it from back there in the 20 years I’ve been a member, not even for “fun”.  Tough enough where I’m at.

Here's the course I usually play which is supposed to be one of the most difficult in the country.  146 from Senior tees is really tough;  what course and what are the other tees rated?

Given the average golf course slope is between 110 and 115, I'd say 146 is pretty hard.

I just finished measuring and rating a new course.  The staff were influencing us to get over 7000 yards and the highest slope possible from the tips.   Turns out, they didn't need much influencing.  The par 71 layout had a rating over 76 with a slope approaching 150.  I'm sure there is some level of bragging rights between courses on who has the toughest course.  However, for the average golfer, even from the forward tees the course was a challenge.  Having to play a course with that difficulty would be challenging for some, but I would think it would be overbearing for most.

It's not the length 5753 meters, from the senior tees, plays longer with all the elevation changes, mountain course, difficult green complexes, designed by RTJ Sr.

They did reset the tee boxes in July for the senior tees, length is now 5201 meters with the slope rating of 131.

Clube de Golf Santo da Serra,

Looks nice.   I am guessing what you refer to as the "senior" tees are the yellow/men's tees.    Everything I find though shows 5700 meters and a 127 slope rating nothing that shows a 146 rating.
