With THE PLAYERS Championship rapidly approaching, tournament officials announced Jan. 2 that new volunteer registration has started and will remain open until all volunteer positions have been filled.
Anyone located in the Northeast Florida area and nationwide is encouraged to apply to become one of the roughly 2,000 volunteers that make THE PLAYERS Championship possible. The tournament will return to THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach May 8-13.
“THE PLAYERS would not be able to give back to the community in such a tremendous way without the passionate volunteers,” said Damon Olinto, tournament chairman for THE PLAYERS. “We are proud to work with more than 2,000 dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to make THE PLAYERS a true shrine to golf fans and a fantastic experience for the best players in the world.”
Volunteers at THE PLAYERS Championship are placed into committees, with jobs ranging from on-course duties, like acting as a marshal during the tournament, to other support roles assisting players and fans. For the week, volunteers at THE PLAYERS Championship pay a fee of $75, which covers the cost of the uniform package as well as a credential that acts as a stadium pass on days in which volunteers are not working.
