Championship Volunteer Opportunities 
Each year many volunteers help make our State and Local Championships run smoothly and fill an important role in the reporting of scores to the golf community.  These volunteer positions require about a half day time commitment and provide an opportunity to watch really good golf, on some truly outstanding courses.  

As a way of thanking you for your time, we will provide an Association logo'ed Hat and Lunch.  

The technology used to report the score is through an app called USGA Tournament Management and is very easy to download and install on your phone.  (We offer support as needed on site) 

If you are interested in volunteering please visit our volunteer page.  You will receive an auto response upon your submission and more details are sent as we get closer.
