COURSE RATING - CAN YOU HELP ?

Scottish Golf is looking to recruit new course rating volunteers, and already have had a lot of folk signing up. Some volunteers are still required in a few areas where uptake has been slower (namely Angus, Ayrshire, The Borders and Lanarkshire). The aim is to ensure that lady course raters are being recruited as well as gents so that the best interests of women's golf are served in the course rating process.

If anyone is interested in volunteering for this interesting work, the first step would be to contact Adam Phillips, Golf Administrator at Scottish Golf (contact details - Tel: 0131 339 3987, e mail: a.phillips@scottishgolf.org)

The next step would be to attend an Introductory seminar during March or April - these will be held at various locations throughout Scotland as below.

Murrayshall Golf Club – Tuesday 21st March, 2017
Haggs Castle Golf Club – Thursday 23rd March, 2017
Peebles Golf Club – Tuesday 28th March, 2017
Ratho Park Golf Club – Thursday 30th March, 2017
Elgin Golf Club – Tuesday 4th April, 2017
Thank you for your help.

With all best wishes for 2017.

Alison Houston
SVLGA Secretary
