Barracuda Championship Now Accepting Applications for 18th Annual PGA TOUR Event
The Tournament will Return to Montrêux June 27-July 3
RENO, Nev. (March 31, 2016) – Golf fans have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the PGA TOUR as volunteers for the 18th annual Barracuda Championship, June 27 – July 3, 2016. As a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, the Barracuda Championship relies on more than 1,000 volunteers to help make the event a success, which also includes supporting other community non-profits.
“Without the help of our amazingly dedicated volunteers this event would not be possible,” said Chris Hoff, tournament director for the Barracuda Championship. “It’s a great opportunity for golf fans or those learning about the sport to get up close to well known players like J.J. Henry and Geoff Ogilvy and learn how a tournament operates.”
Volunteers for the region’s only PGA TOUR event are offered a variety of opportunities including player and caddie transportation, score keeping, serving as course marshals and other key roles in making the tournament a continued success. Additionally, volunteers are a part of an organization that has donated more than $3.2 million to local charities.
Volunteering costs $55 which includes the required uniform with exclusive branded material, a meal during each shift, tournament tickets and invitations to the Volunteer Appreciation Parties, valued at more than $200. As always, military veterans, active duty, guard and reserve, first responders and high school students can volunteer at no cost.
