Our game can't grow without you

Volunteering

Golf is blessed with thousands of passionate volunteers who support clubs, counties, championships and players up and down the country.

Did you know that there are over 40,000 golf volunteers doing core roles in clubs and thousands more helping out less formally? Our mission is to ensure every volunteer feels appreciated and supported in their role.

In our volunteering section we have information on:

  • How to get into volunteering
  • Learning and development opportunities for volunteers
  • Support for clubs and counties with volunteers

How can I volunteer?

Giving up your time to volunteer can not only help your club and its members, but also you personally!
