    On Monday-Thursday upon arrival at University Ridge, please present your volunteer “V” hangtag to the parking attendant and you will be directed to a designated area. Please use the reserved volunteer parking section during designated shifts only.

  10. Yes. Your volunteer credential will serve as your admission pass for the week and we encourage you to use it. We do ask you not wear your uniform when off-duty, so please bring a change of clothes if you plan to spectate before or after your shift. Also, your volunteer credential gives you access to the grounds only!
  11. While you are working, cameras and recording devices are not allowed. During your shift, please refrain from asking for autographs. Volunteers off duty may not use their credentials to gain access to areas for purposes of soliciting autographs. Soliciting autographs from tournament players with intent to sell is prohibited. You agree that you shall not seek autographs of players in order to sell such autographs, and you shall not pay another person to obtain an autograph for you.
  12. We will make every effort to accommodate your scheduling requests. Make sure to list your request in the “Work with or Committee Selection” portion of the registration process.
  13. When you initially register to volunteer, you will select your top three committee preferences. Once you have been assigned to a committee, your committee chairman will be in contact with you to finalize your work schedule and provide you with detailed information pertaining to your duties and meetings.
  14. The tournament will take place rain or shine and we will need your help, so please be prepared! In the event of any weather delays, your committee chairperson will provide you with instructions.
  15. Volunteers will be responsible for wearing the official volunteer uniform during tournament week. Updates on pre-tournament uniform pickup times and locations will be provided via email. During tournament week, uniforms and credential packets will be available at Volunteer Headquarters. Please arrive at least 60 minutes early if you are planning to pick up prior to your shift.

We hope that all volunteers will find value in raising money for local charities, getting “inside the ropes” to see some of the most accomplished professional golfers, as well as receiving a shirt, hat, meals, pin and weekly grounds passes for yourself and a guest.

PGA Tour Integrity Program

The PGA TOUR Integrity Program is intended to maintain integrity and prevent betting-related corruption in PGA TOUR competitions. Each volunteer is subject to the terms of the PGA TOUR Integrity Program Manual (the "Integrity Program Manual"). The Integrity Program Manual, among other things: prohibits volunteers from betting on the Tournament and providing inside information to third parties for purposes of betting on the Tournament; and requires volunteers to report any violations of the Integrity Program Manual to the TOUR. A violation of the Integrity Program may result in dismissal from volunteering for the Tournament, among other consequences.
