News Release: Hamilton, Bermuda (August 6, 2019) – The Bermuda Championship has announced volunteer opportunities are now available for the 2019 event. The inaugural Bermuda Championship will take place October 28 through November 3 at Port Royal Golf Course, Southampton.
“Volunteers play an integral role in the tournament operations,” said tournament director Sean Sovacool. “We have been overwhelmed by the community interest to take part in the first playing of the Bermuda Championship, and we look forward to providing a memorable experience for everyone involved.”
Golf knowledge isn’t required to volunteer; in fact, the tournament has a variety of opportunities for golfers and non-golfers alike. Over 500 volunteers will be required to fill positions on 15 committees, ranging from Marshals, Walking Scorers, and TV Spotters, to Merchandise, Pro-Am and Product Distribution. A full list of committees can be viewed on the tournament website.
How to Register
Interested volunteers should visit www.bermudachampionship.com to apply online. Early submission of the application allows volunteers to specify their committee preference. Volunteers are asked to work a minimum of three shifts, which range from four to six hours each, depending on the committee. Volunteers will be provided with an official tournament polo, tournament hat, volunteer credential that can also be used to attend the tournament when not on duty, and lunch on the days they work.
Juniors will also have a chance to join in. Youth ages 13–17 have the opportunity to volunteer as a Standard Bearer, an exciting role of walking inside of the ropes with a player group while carrying a two-sided scoring standard. Those interested in volunteering should sign up through the junior volunteer section on the online registration page.
Adopt a Hole
Another position that provides great viewing and exclusive access is that of Marshal. Represent your club or organisation with the ‘Adopt-A-Hole’ programme by assembling a group to marshal a hole. Contact Jordan Burns (email@example.com) for details on this opportunity.
