Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I wear with my uniform?

We ask that all volunteers wear khaki bottoms.  Men can wear khaki pants or shorts.  Ladies can wear khaki capris, pants, or knee length shorts or skorts.  No jeans or cargo-style shorts.  Tournament hats only, please.

Will meals be provided?

Since there is no fee for the volunteer package, meals will not be provided. There will be concession stands on site available for you to purchase your meals.

What is Volunteer Village?

Volunteer Village is located near the course entrance.  The Marshals and Walking Scorers check-in will be located in the Village, which will have a lounge area as well as restrooms. If you are scheduled to work and have not received scheduling confirmation from your captain, report to the Volunteer Village for further instructions.

What will be available at Volunteer Village?

Complimentary Coca-Cola products, coffee, and ice cream will still be available in volunteer village for you to relax and take a break!

How many days do I have to volunteer and for how many hours?

We ask that adult volunteers work three shifts over the course of the tournament, which range from 5–8 hours each.

Can I watch golf when I am not working?

Yes, your volunteer badge will serve as your admission pass for the entire week and we encourage you to do so. We do ask that you not wear your uniform when not on duty, so please bring a change of clothes if you plan on being a spectator before or after your shift.

Can I take photographs or ask for autographs?

No photos or autographs please while you are on shift.  When you are not working or in your volunteer uniform, you may use your camera or request autographs at any time.

Can I be scheduled (shift assignments) at the same time as my spouse, friend, etc.?

We will make every effort to accommodate your scheduling requests. Make sure to list your request in the “Comments” section on the registration form.

How do I know my schedule? And when will I receive my schedule?

We ask you to help create your schedule by completing your availability during registration. This section of registration asks you to provide us your preferred days and times and will be used to create the master schedule for your committee. After committee assignments have been made your committee chairperson will assign your shifts for the week and notify you of your schedule. Most committee assignments will be made in early March.

What happens if it rains?

The event will go on and we will need your help! Make sure to report to your committee’s check-in location 30 minutes prior to your shift, rain or shine, unless you hear alternate instructions from your chairman.

Where do I check-in once I arrive on-site?

Your committee chairman will give you specifics on where to meet when you arrive on site.  All volunteers will be required to check-in with their chairman before each shift. If you do not check in with your chairman, you will not receive credit for your shift. Please remember that you must work a minimum of three (3) shifts to be eligible for the Fallen Oak play days and for the Island View Buffet Voucher and Windance Golf Voucher.
