Course Rating Volunteers serve the golfers of Florida by systematically rating the state’s 1,300 golf courses. Our volunteers follow strict World Handicap system guidelines for rating each course. A course must first be accurately measured, and then obstacles that affect playing difficulty are evaluated in accordance with established standards.
So you think you want to become an FSGA Course Rating volunteer?
Becoming a course rating volunteer is more difficult than becoming a tournament volunteer. We have limited available openings on the course rating teams around the state and full-time residency is preferred since a majority of rating occur during the summer months.
"Course Raters", as they are called, perform the following functions:
Measure courses and all teeing grounds
Gather data for the rating (position of penalty area, depth and size of bunkers, width of fairways, severity of green slopes, green speed, forced carry's, etc.)
Assist their Course Rating Captain and Co-Captain with various of functions
Play the course to confirm data gathered on previous day
