Cary, NC – Over 600 volunteers are needed for the 2011 SAS Championship golf tournament, presented by Bloomberg Businessweek. For the 11th consecutive year, the Champions Tour golf event will return to Prestonwood Country Club in Cary.

Tournament dates are September 26 – October 2.  Golf knowledge is not required to volunteer and families and friends are encouraged to participate.

“Anyone looking to see professional golf, enjoy the outdoors, witness a first-class tournament from behind-the-scenes and connect with people in this community-driven event is encouraged to volunteer,” said Tournament Director Jeff Kleiber. “Age or golf knowledge makes no difference. All of our volunteers play an integral role in the success of the SAS Championship year after year.”

How You Can Become a Volunteer

Volunteering can be a great way to have fun, meet people and watch the legends of golf in and out of competition. There are a number of different committees that have unique responsibilities, including: Golf Channel support, walking scorers, standard bearers and hole marshals. Training will be provided for committees requiring specific knowledge.

The volunteer fee is $40 before August 1 (after August 1  the volunteer fee will go to $50) and includes a Nike golf shirt,  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 good for one round at Prestonwood Country Club. Volunteers can register at
