WHEN: SUNDAY, APRIL 28 | 10 A.M. – 12 P.M.

During the two hour seminar, attendees will be introduced to ways in which individuals can become involved with respective aspects of Mass Golf, including volunteer opportunities within the Championship, Tournament and Course Rating departments, as well as The First Tee of Massachusetts junior golf organization.

Mass Golf has historically managed one of the largest and most successful volunteer programs in the Northeast and in line with continued growth for the association, this seminar will give individuals the chance to learn more about the opportunities that are available and to see how they best fit respective skills, knowledge and desires in regards to individual golf experience.

“With a new year ahead and ample opportunities to get involved with Mass Golf, we wanted to offer a seminar that allows people to learn more about our volunteer operations while being able to ask questions directly to our staff,” said Mass Golf Manager of Championships Drew Rosen, who is serving as the point person for the seminar. “As we look to increase numbers across all areas of volunteerism, we wanted to provide an easy way for individuals to learn more about the opportunities that exist and be transparent with the people who have a large impact in the overall success of our association.”

Information about Mass Golf’s course rating volunteer program – where teams of volunteers work to properly rate and measure member clubs in accordance with USGA guidelines – as well as The First Tee of Massachusetts junior golf initiative, which operates at six facilities across the Bay State, will be distributed. Specific questions about Volunteering with the Course Rating Program can be directed to Keith Gagnon and questions regarding opportunities with The First Tee of Massachusetts can be directed to Kyle Harris.


With the implementation of the new Rules of Golf by the USGA and R&A to begin this season, this seminar will also address questions regarding how the changes will impact Mass Golf rules officials and volunteers.
