Become a GCGA Volunteer

GCGA volunteers are an organization of individuals who are the backbone of the Greater Cincinnati Golf Association. Members of this select group serve in many capacities in the administration of the GCGA’s activities. The tournament committee uses many White Hats to conduct GCGA Championships and USGA Qualifiers. The successful administration of these events is enhanced by the contributions of the volunteers, who serve as starters, scorers, rules officials, and observers. With an expanded schedule, especially in junior golf, the GCGA will require even more volunteers in the years ahead. The Course Rating and Handicap Committee of the GCGA also utilizes volunteers to serve on its course rating teams.

Each candidate receives extensive training in the complexities of slope and course ratings. The volunteers are then placed on rating teams with experienced captains. These teams are involved in re-rating all clubs in the GCGA and are conducting initial ratings for new clubs requesting the service. The GCGA is indebted to its volunteers for the many services they perform and the time they devote to improving the quality of golf in the Greater Cincinnati area.
