Although the AGA is managed by professional staff, we are heavily dependent on volunteers. The success of our member programs is dependent upon individuals willing to volunteer their time to help make them happen. The common denominator of all AGA volunteers is the simple desire to give something back to the game that they love. Whether you have a lot of time to give or just a few hours a month, we would love to have you involved.
We will be hosting two volunteer orientations throughout the year to educate and train prospective volunteers on what positions are available from the AGA.
Orientation Date TBD
More information on how to register coming soon.
Volunteer opportunities exist in the following areas:
Adult Player Development
Adult Player Development volunteers provide support, encouragement, and education to the Golf 101/201 participants by assisting the LPGA/PGA Professional throughout the series.
Communication & Outreach
There are a variety of positions available within the Communication & Outreach program. From assistance at PR Events, the Speakers Bureau, and Regional Area Advisors, there is something for those individuals who enjoy connecting with people and sharing information about association opportunities.
Course Rating & Measuring
The AGA course rating teams visit 60-75 golf courses per year. This program is vitally important to the integrity of the handicap system since the entire system revolves around accurate USGA Course and Slope ratings.
Members of the Handicap Committee are certified in the USGA Handicap System. They ensure that AGA member clubs are operating under the requirements of the USGA Handicap System and provide support to Handicap Committees at member clubs on the regional and state levels.
Rules of Golf Committee (AzRC)
The Rules Committee members volunteer to serve as Rules Officials at AGA tournaments, present Rules of Golf workshops, and serve as Rules Officials at other outside tournaments on behalf of the Association.
The AGA tournament schedule consists of approximately 65 tournaments, including AGA open and divisional events, USGA Qualifying Rounds, collegiate and NCAA events. Although an AGA staff member is in charge of the events, the successful and professional conduct of AGA tournaments is largely the result of a strong core of tournament volunteers.
Youth Player Development
Youth Player Development programs administer and support instructional and playing opportunities for youth throughout the State of Arizona. We support numerous programs hosted by JGAA, AJGA, First Tee of Phoenix, PING Junior Interclub and much more.The Build A TEAM program offers volunteer opportunities with each participating high school team as well as within the administration of the program.
