Volunteer Training Days Aim to Educate Expanding Base
As part of its tournament season preparation, the Golf Association of Philadelphia will conduct a series of Volunteer Training Days.
|Wednesday, March 27||Berkshire Country Club|
|Wednesday, April 3||Tavistock Country Club|
|Saturday, April 6||Rolling Green Golf Club|
The Volunteer Training Day schedule is as follows: registration with a continental breakfast at 8 a.m.; training from 8:30 a.m. to noon; lunch from noon to 1 p.m.
In addition, a GAP/AGA Volunteer Training Seminar will take place on Saturday, March 30 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at Elmhurst Country Club. Volunteers in the Northeastern Pennsylvania region are needed to fulfill the roles of starting official (greets players, provides local rules for the day, starts groups at designated tee times); checkpoint official (collects and posts scores via handheld tablets, monitors pace of play) and rules official (ensures the event is fairly contested under the Rules of Golf and offers counsel to players in need of a procedural ruling).
All GAP volunteers must be available for one training day on a bi-annual basis. For more information, contact the Golf Office at 610-687-2340.

It serves as the principal ruling body of amateur golf in its region. The Association’s 273 Full Member Clubs and 75,000 individual members are spread across the Eastern half of Pennsylvania and parts of New Jersey and Delaware. The GAP’s mission is to promote, preserve and protect the game of golf.
