Other duties include assisting Executive Director, Administrator and VGA Directors in day to day golf association duties, answering questions and inquiries from member clubs and member golfers, assisting in course rating, handicapping, communications with clubs, golfers, other associations and media.


Compensation: This is a paid internship. Attendance at the P.J. Boatwright, Jr. Intern Orientation conducted by the USGA is required and those expenses are paid. VGA uniform apparel is provided.
