In an effort to provide a safe, enjoyable tournament experience to juniors and their families, the GSGA Junior Tour hires several staff members throughout the year. Learn more about these positions below.
Tournament Staff (Traveling)

The majority of tournament staff is needed during the peak summer season (late May-July), however, opportunities are available to assist with events in the subsequent fall, spring and summer seasons once one summer season has been completed. These opportunities are based upon need and overall performance during the initial summer season. Potential candidates must be high school graduates and some knowledge of the game of golf is preferred. Scheduling is somewhat flexible based upon event needs, but availability during a majority of the summer season is expected. All tournament staff positions are paid an hourly rate and require the ability to travel in a personal vehicle to and from events within the state of Georgia.
