Volunteers Recognized in 2020

Volunteers have been at the heart of Golf Manitoba since its founding in 2003 and prior to that for both the Manitoba Ladies’ Golf Association and the Manitoba Golf Association.

We cannot say enough about our fabulous group of outstanding, dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers that have continued to sustain Golf Manitoba as a viable organization over our 105 years of operation! Our wonderful volunteers continue to fill the many critical roles necessary to allow Golf Manitoba to achieve its vision of providing quality, innovative and accessible programs and services to our membership. Volunteer roles with Golf Manitoba include:

  • Board of Directors
  • Committee chairs and members
  • Rules referees
  • Photographers
  • Non-playing captains
  • Junior program development
  • Course raters
  • Starters & scorers
  • Pace of play officials
  • Rules educators
