Volunteers needed

The SAS Championship, a Champions Tour event, is looking for about 600 volunteers for the September golf tournament in Raleigh.

I'm not sure who will be playing this year as the field hasn't been set yet, but Eduardo Romero, defending SAS Championship champion is expected to play. But last year, Fred Funk, Bernhard Langer, Hale Irwin and Tom Kite were just a few of the players who competed.

So, this is a chance to rub elbows with some of the legends of golf. There are a number of different volunteer groups that have unique responsibilities, including: Golf Channel support, walking scorers, standard bearers and hole marshals. Training will be provided..

The volunteer fee is $50 and includes an Antigua golf shirt and headwear, Volunteer Badge valid for week-long tournament access, two Weekly Grounds Badges for guests of the volunteer’s choice, two invitations to the annual Volunteer Appreciation Party and meals and beverages during assigned shifts. All volunteers that work three or more shifts will receive a free golf voucher for one round at Prestonwood Country Club.
