Adult volunteer committees full; junior, student spots still available

While all adult volunteer committees have been filled, juniors and students can still participate in the volunteer program by applying for one of the following committees: Standard Bearers, Card Copy Runners and Leader Boards.

The Junior/Student Volunteer program is a great opportunity for young individuals to get involved with the community and the game of golf. Junior Volunteers (13-17 years of age) and Student Volunteers (18-22 years of age, VALID STUDENT ID REQUIRED) will NOT be asked to pay a Uniform/Application Fee. As volunteers, they will be provided with a golf shirt and baseball cap and will also receive complimentary admission to the Championship all six days of the event.

Among the committees seeking Junior and Student Volunteers are Standard Bearers, Card Copy Runners and Leader Boards. Those interested are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.
