COMMITTEES AND SHIFTS
Volunteers are assigned to a variety of committees, performing the many tasks required to conduct a PGA TOUR event. Please refer to the COMMITTEE DESCRIPTION page for more information on the committees that are available. You will be assigned to a committee once we receive your volunteer uniform fee.
Each volunteer is required to work a minimum of 3 shifts. Generally, there are two (2) shifts per day, the morning or AM shift, 6:00 am – 12 pm, and the afternoon or PM shift, 12 pm – 6 pm. Once assigned to a committee, your chairperson will contact you to discuss your schedule. Some shifts are also available prior to tournament week.
Training is available for most committees and your training schedule will be forwarded to you. Should you have further questions, please contact your committee chairperson located on the VOLUNTEER CONTACT INFORMATION page.
Each volunteer is required to purchase a volunteer uniform for a minimal fee of $60 if paid before July 1st, $65 after July 1st. This helps to defray our costs associated with each volunteer. Our event is operated as a 501(c)3 charity and every available dollar is dedicated to our mission of raising awareness and money for the Shriners Hospitals for Children.
The official volunteer uniform consists of a polo style golf shirt, jacket, baseball cap or visor or straw hat (for an additional fee). You are required to provide your own khaki slacks, shorts or skort. In addition to your uniform, your entire volunteer package consists of:
Meals during your shift
Volunteer Appreciation Party
Volunteer Tournament Badge
A Week Long Tournament Access Badge
Volunteer After- Party
(Approximate package value, excess of $350, including uniform)
