It is important to be on time and not to ever go earlier than the starting time. While this is a very vital position, it is also one of the most enjoyable if you like to be around the excitement. This position does require that you stand for a large portion of the starting wave that you are assigned, generally a two-hour block if using a front and back nine starts.Officiating

This is not generally a very physically demanding role.

Depending on the event and the number of Scorers who volunteer for the event. You either walk with one group or are assigned to a scoring location on the course where you will collect the scores from the players as they leave the putting surface or come to the next tee. After writing them on the clip board you then record them into your Mobile Device so the scores can then be viewed by all the interested parties. And while it is important to record the scores correctly it is not an official score as players confirm their scores at the conclusion of their round.
