Volunteers have been at the heart of the organization since its founding in 2003 and prior to that for both the Manitoba Ladies’ Golf Association and the Manitoba Golf Association.
As a volunteer, you are part of a team of volunteers and staff working together to enable Golf Manitoba to achieve its goals. Your contribution, dedication and commitment are vital to our growth. Each volunteer opportunity contributes an important part to the organization as a whole and allows Golf Manitoba to provide the services we do to help the game of golf prosper. Volunteers enjoy:
- Giving back to the game of golf – working at premier amateur golf events
- Socializing with a vibrant network of golfers and clubs
- Staff support
- Training and recognition
