The Colorado Golf Association is a volunteer-based organization that provides services to individual members, member clubs, and member golf facilities in Colorado. We currently are seeking volunteers in many areas. Our volunteers play a significant role in allowing the association to provide the activities that are organized and conducted, and many of the volunteers serve out of a desire to give something back to the game of golf.
Tournament volunteers work at CGA tournaments, junior events (JGAC) and USGA qualifiers doing registration, scoring, starting, spotting and other tasks to ensure that the event is run smoothly, and that the players have a great experience.
Course Rating Volunteer
Volunteers rate Colorado golf facilities to provide a uniform basis for handicapping, in accordance with the recommendations of the United States Golf Association. To be eligible to be a rater, you must have a handicap of 18 or less.
Rules officials are on hand at all tournaments to officiate and apply the Rules of Golf. Volunteers who have a solid understanding of the USGA Rules of Golf and who are committed to continuing their education in the Rules of Golf are the ideal candidates for serving.
Program volunteers help with caddie training for the Solich Caddie & Leadership Academy, Hale Irwin Player Program, Golf in Schools field trips and a wide-variety of community programs such as Special Olympics, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Colorado, HopeKids, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and LPGA/USGA Girls Golf. In addition, we also conduct the Women’s Golf Experiences around the state. All programming is conducted at CommonGround Golf Course except for Women’s Golf Experiences.
