VOLUNTEER WITH US
Volunteers are vital to the LGA’s mission of player development by elevating the member experience and fostering growth in key programs like pace of play, care for the course and code of conduct.
MAKE AN IMPACT
The LGA typically rates 5-10 courses annually. When rating a course, the team evaluates each hole using the USGA Course Rating Team System Handbook.
The majority of the team’s time is spent measuring distances to various obstacles from specific landing zones based on shot parameters.
After rating the obstacles, the rating team may play the golf course to gain greater insight, from a playing perspective, and to clarify any doubts or questions that may arise on specific holes or shots.
– Complimentary White LGA Polo
– Lunch Provided
