"Ride Along" Program

For people who would like to see how a Rules Referee performs their duties in working a tournament, GSA Rules of Golf Group has developed a “Ride Along” program. All you need do is to pick a tournament from our Tournament Schedule, email Mike Lonergan at and set up a “Ride Along” experience. No commitment is necessary on your part to do this ride. After the ride, if you want to join our group, GSA Rules of Golf Group welcomes you.
