Volunteers

DSC_9067The success of the Encompass Championship relies heavily on community and volunteer support. Approximately 1,000 volunteers will be needed to supply a variety of services and support for the tournament in roles such as crowd control, parking, admissions, scoring, ecology and other player and fan services.

If you have golf tournament volunteer experience, we welcome your expertise and participation, and if you have never volunteered before, we welcome you to explore the volunteer experience with the Encompass Championship.

By volunteering, you are helping the tournament raise funds for local tournament charities, all while enjoying the experience of tournament week.
