Still waiting for your buddy to invite you to play Salem Country Club? Your only chance to walk the course inside the ropes might be by volunteering during the U.S. Senior Open Championship, June 26 – July 2.
More than 2,800 volunteers are needed to fill positions on more than 28 committees, including marshals, transportation, leaderboards and merchandise. Online volunteer registration is now taking place. Early submission of the application allows volunteers to specify their committee preference.
Interested volunteers should visit 2017ussenioropen.com. A full description of committee responsibilities is provided on the website to assist volunteers in determining their preferences. All volunteers are required to purchase the basic volunteer package for $125 (a $250 value), which includes one championship golf shirt, one championship windbreaker, one championship ball cap or visor, one water bottle, and one volunteer credential valid for all seven days of the championship, as well as complimentary food, snacks and beverages on the days they volunteer.
Each volunteer will be asked to work approximately 16 to 20 hours, or four to five shifts over the course of the championship. The 2017 U.S. Senior Open marks the second time Salem Country Club will host this USGA national championship.
