The amount of the trailing edge of the club which is below the leading edge.
Angle of the club's sole in relation to level/horizontal, or the amount that the leading edge of the club is higher than the part of the club's sole that is lowermost (usually used in reference to irons -- wedges in particular -- and measured in degrees)
The measurement from the leading edge of the club face to the groundline. Wedges typically have the most bounce in a set of clubs. Bounce helps these clubs go through sand and high grass easily.

The angle measured from the front edge of a wedge's sole to the point that rests on the ground at address.
Usually referred to when discussing wedge specifications, bounce is the description of one type of sole angle where the back edge of the sole is lower than the front edge. A bounce angle on the sole is what keeps wedges from digging too deep in the sandor getting stopped by tall grass. Measured in degrees, typical bounce angles range from 6 to 15.
commonly measured in degrees, expressing the angle of the sole of an iron; the sand wedge historically has the most bounce in a set, as much as 10 to 12 degrees.
on wedges, the degree of roundness of the sole of the club. Bounce helps the clubhead get through sand and long grass without digging in.
is made up of all the features of a club's sole design. These include bounce angle, sole width, leading edge, rocker, and camber. The amount of bounce on a wedge can have a huge impact on how the club will react in grass or sand. A wedge or club with more bounce will skim across the surface of grass or sand leaving smaller divots, these wedges are better suited for players with steep swings or for soft, wet conditions. A club with less bounce is better suited for a player with a shallow swing or for hard, dry conditions.
The angle that is formed between the leading edge of the club and the lowest part of the sole. Clubs with higher bounce angles (sand wedges) tend not to dig into the turf and clubs with lower bounce angles (pitching/lob wedges) tend to dig into the turf.

Bounce, or bounce angle, is a term used to describe the angle inscribed by the leading edge of a golfing iron (particularly a wedge), the sole of the club, and the ground. In plainer terms, bounce angle is an indication of how much the sole, or bottom-most part, of the club head lifts the leading edge. A high bounce angle (angles of 12-15o are not uncommon) indicates a sole which lifts the leading edge significantly, whereas a a club with little or no bounce allows the leading edge to contact the ground without interference.
