National events seek more volunteers
Two of GAP’s founding Member Clubs will welcome national championships in 2020. An abundance of volunteer opportunities awaits as a result.
Philadelphia Cricket Club hosts the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship May 20-27. The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship heads to Aronimink Golf Club June 23-28. Both events seek more volunteers, whom in turn for their efforts will be issued volunteer packages.
For the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball, each volunteer will receive a uniform, which includes a wind shirt, a short-sleeve shirt and a hat; a food and beverage voucher for use during each shift; all-week access to the Championship grounds; entry into a drawing for foursomes at Philadelphia Cricket and entry into a drawing for 2020 U.S. Open tickets. A nominal fee of $95 is required to cover the aforementioned amenities.
Volunteers for the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship will receive a uniform, which includes two Ralph Lauren golf shirts, a jacket and a New Era headwear piece; a food and water voucher for use during each shift; all-week access to the Championship grounds; an official KPMG Women’s PGA Championship drawstring bag; the official 2020 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship program and complimentary parking. Cost of the volunteer package is $140, plus $8.40 tax.
The deadline to register for the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship is April 3. All volunteer applications for the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball must be received by April 15. More than 600 half-day shifts need to be filled at Philadelphia Cricket. Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older.
