Volunteer Opportunities

As a non-profit organization, The Mississippi Golf Association relies heavily on the support of volunteers and continues to grow through the generosity of these individuals. We welcome anyone with an interest in the game of golf in Mississippi and available time during weekdays and or weekends to assist in tournament operations or USGA Course and Slope Ratings.


Sanderson Farms Championship

The Mississippi Golf Association began staffing volunteers at a Mississippi's only PGA Tour stop, the Sanderson Farms Championship. We are seeking active individuals who have an interest in seeing great golf during the week of the championship and be inside the ropes at the same time. We are on hole 6 at the Country Club of Jackson, a great par 4 with views of hole 3 and 8 too.

Our positions include Marshals and ShotLink opperators. Marshals are stationed at the Teeing Ground, Fairway and Green. ShotLink operators are stationed at the Fairway and Green. Marshals are responsible for monitoring the movement of spectators and keeping talking to a minimum from the crowds. Marshals in the Fairway and the Green also assist players in locating a ball. 

Both positions are exciting and keep you very involved. Check back here as the 2018 Championship draws near - October 22-28, 2018 - Check out the Sanderson Farms Championship website for detailed descriptions of the different volunteer positions.

USGA Couse and Slope Rating Team

The Mississippi Golf Association is responsible for providing all Member Clubs with an updated USGA Course and Slope Rating every several years. Associations rely heavily on volunteer raters assigned to different regions. It is an interesting process and we would love to teach you. Email us if you are interested, missgolf@missgolf.org.
