Discounts for Early Registration
RENO, Nev. (November 18, 2014) – Golf fans have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the PGA TOUR as volunteers for the 17th annual Barracuda Championship, August 3-9, 2015. As a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, the Barracuda Championship, formerly known as the Reno-Tahoe Open, relies on hundreds of volunteers to help make the event a success. To volunteer for the tournament, a $55 fee is required to help cover part of the cost of the volunteer uniform, but as a special promotion for the holiday season, volunteers only pay $45 now through December 31, 2014 and $50 if registering between January 01 – March 31, 2015. To register, visit www.BarracudaChampionship.com or call 775-322-3900.
More than 1,000 volunteers are needed for the 2015 Barracuda Championship. Volunteers 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. Volunteers not only have the chance to get in the action with PGA TOUR players such as John Daly, Nick Watney and 2014 champion Geoff Ogilvy, but they can be part of supporting an organization that has donated more than $3 million to charitable organizations in northern Nevada.
The $45 fee 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.
