Volunteer Opportunities

The IGA-PGA is always looking for volunteers to help at our events.

How you can sign up to be a volunteer?

If you are interested in volunteering for any of the above events please contact Matt Schmidt, Tournament Director, at the Indiana Golf Office at 800.779.7271 or via email at mschmidt@indianagolf.org.


If you don't have a strong background in Rules Officiating this position may be best for you. As a Scorer you will assist the IGA-PGA tournament staff by collecting and checking scorecards after the completion of each players round.

Sometimes you may be asked to drive a leaderboard cart keeping and recording up to date scoring information for that group. Scorers will inform the tournament staff on scoring information as needed.


One way to gain experience as a Rules Official is to help out as a Spotter. You will be positioned on a hole spotting golf balls for participants. This volunteer will have access to a radio and can listen in on all rules situations that happen in the tournament. When rules situations occur on your hole you will call a rules official and witness first hand how to handle that situation.


The Host Club is in charge of securing volunteers to be starters at all IGA-PGA tournaments. If you are interested in being a starter please contact the host club and speak to one of the golf professionals.

Duties include:

  • Covering Rules for the day with each group
  • Notifying tournament staff of missing players
  • Handing out scorecards, rules and favors
  • Give players their teeing order based on the pairing sheet
  • Ensure that players are teeing off at their exact starting time
