We cannot run the CGA without volunteers helping out. Volunteers are provided with a CGA golf shirt, and are reimbursed for mileage, meals, and lodging expenses incurred while volunteering.
Tournament Operations volunteers works at CGA tournaments 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.
Volunteers rates 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.
Membership volunteers are responsible for creating and providing resources to clubs, and individual members of the CGA, and increasing membership in the Association.
Work at Junior Golf Alliance tournaments and see the next generation of golfers.
