Volunteer Overview

The Nebraska Golf Association (NGA) is a membership-based, nonprofit organization that promotes the game of golf. The NGA Volunteer Program is designed to assist the NGA in delivering the highest quality service to our members and member clubs throughout Nebraska. NGA volunteers graciously donate their time and experience to the Association for the love of golf. They believe in promoting and preserving the true spirit of the game.

 

Why Should I Sign Up?

The NGA administers over 50 days of competition each year. Whether it's the starter on the first tee, the official in the scoring tent or the host at the registration table, every organized championship needs great volunteers. It takes a special individual to continually volunteer his time, knowledge and experience. NGA volunteers put in early mornings and long afternoons on and off the golf course fulfilling their duties with accuracy and satisfaction.

How to Become an NGA Tournament Volunteer or Rules Official

The only requirements to become an NGA championship volunteer or rules official are membership in the NGA, purchase of the NGA volunteer apparel package (details below) and a desire to give back to the game.

VOLUNTEER APPAREL

NGA Volunteer Apparel Package (Required)
Tournament volunteers are required to purchase the NGA's volunteer apparel package. The package consists of a Fairway & Greene (F&G) golf shirt and an Imperial cap, both with the NGA logo. It's essential that NGA tournament volunteers be identifiable at NGA competitions. The volunteer apparel package may be purchased for a one-time deal of $45 by contacting Gary Austin at austin1090@cox.net.

The official uniform for Staff, Rules Officials, Starters and Official Scorers is a white shirt with the NGA logo, khaki slacks, NGA-approved headgear and a NGA identification badge. Khaki shorts or skirts, in addition to slacks, are approved for female volunteers. This uniformity makes the NGA Staff and volunteers more recognizable at events.

Optional Volunteer Apparel
As optional parts of the official NGA Staff/Rules Official uniform, several Fairway & Greene and Zero Restriction clothing items with the NGA logo are available for purchase, either for cash or by trading volunteer days.

Volunteer Rewards Program
The Rewards Program enables volunteers to build credit towards free items based on the number of full days worked. The NGA Volunteer Coordinator maintains a spreadsheet to track the number of days each volunteer works. A volunteer may redeem his or her accumulated credit when desired to receive any reward items listed below. Credit does not expire so it may be carried over from year-to-year. This table has been revised to include the optional NGA items now available and provides both a workday trade equivalent and a cash purchase price for each item. All of these items will have the NGA logo.
