Yardage Entry: Should the yardage entered be the actual, or effective (ie taking slope – and maybe wind into consideration). For instance, SG off the tee might be distorted off downhill holes and uphill/downhill approach shots might show distortion when sorted into the various buckets (150-200 etc).

Because the baselines were created using “actual” yardage, I’d recommend using that. However, you are correct that an argument could be made for “effective” yardage, and that would be fine as well, though being consistent would help. Another reason for using “actual” yardage is that it removes any subjectivity (e.g., do you also include the wind? course elevation? temperature?).
