The Tennessee Golf Association is a non-profit that runs championship golf tournaments throughout the year to serve our members. Volunteers are an integral part in the success of those events. The TGA has two areas to volunteer: tournament operations and course rating.
The TGA conducts over 22 championships annually which require the highest level of service to golfers and courses. With over 120 competition days annually, this is the area that requires the most volunteers. We have opportunities in: live scoring, on-course hydration, on-course rules official, pace of play, scoring, starter, and tournament operations. Click here for more details on these different opportunities.
A team of volunteers alongside our course rating team leader form together to assist in rating the courses across Tennessee. In doing this, volunteers assist in on-course measurements, evaluations, and data collection. Our volunteers are asked during and before this process to continue education on the topic of course rating through online and in-person training sessions. Want to know more? Check out this introduction on course rating from the USGA and these video introductions on all things course rating from the World Handicap System.
