Rules Officials

Tournament Officials

In order for the experience to be beneficial for the volunteer and for the GSGA’s competitions program, individuals should have a keen interest in the conduct and administration of a golf tournament and a willingness to improve his or her knowledge of the Rules of Golf, starting, scoring, scoreboard operations and golf course marking and preparation.

Opportunities for training include GSGA Tournament Administration Training videos, the annual GSGA/Georgia PGA Rules of Golf Seminar, a one-day event usually held in the Atlanta area during the winter, or a USGA PGA Rules of Golf Workshop, which is an extensive, three-day study of the Rules of Golf and is held in many areas of the country, including Atlanta, during the first three months of the year.
