Scottish Golf is looking to recruit new course rating volunteers, and already have had a lot of folk signing up. Some volunteers are still required in a few areas where uptake has been slower (namely Angus, Ayrshire, The Borders and Lanarkshire). The aim is to ensure that lady course raters are being recruited as well as gents so that the best interests of women's golf are served in the course rating process.

If anyone is interested in volunteering for this interesting work, the first step would be to contact Adam Phillips, Golf Administrator at Scottish Golf (contact details - Tel: 0131 339 3987, e mail:
