Every year the Metropolitan relies on its volunteer base to help conduct the USGA Qualifying Rounds and Metropolitan Championships
A tremendous part of the success of the MAGA Championship Program is our team of volunteers, officially designated as MAGA Rules Committee Members. The MAGA is proud to have a large collection of volunteers who assist with our MAGA Championships, USGA Qualifying Rounds and Amateur Series. While our Committee Members come from very diverse backgrounds, they all share one common trait: their love of the game!
Committee Members serve a variety of functions at our Championships such as Rules Officials, Starters, Scoring Officials, Forecaddies and many other important roles at each event.
Scoring Committee Members serve a variety of functions at our Championships such as collecting scores on course for Live Scoring to the setup and posting of scores on our scoreboards and more.
