Join as Referee

Interested in being part of the golfing industry? Join us as a referee today!

The SGA Referees assist the Association in officiating various golf tournaments locally – from major amateur events to the Inter-Club League. To be an SGA referee, interested parties are required to go through at least 2 Levels of Golf Schools sanctioned by SGA and supported by R&A.


R&A Level 1 Rules School

A 1.5-day introductory course, it is catered to Professionals, Committee Members, Club Managers and Executive as well as other individuals who are keen to learn and gain a deeper understanding of the Rules.  The course includes a basic on-course demonstration and a 1-hour examination.

R&A Level 2 Rules School

An intermediate course only eligible to candidates who have taken and passed their Level 1 Rules School, the 2-day programme covers theory and practical aspects of the Rules of Golf. Candidates have to sit for a written examination, where those who wish to be an SGA Referee must achieve a passing mark of 70%.
