Volunteers sought for the Bermuda Championship
Online registration to volunteer at the upcoming Bermuda Championship has now opened.
The Bermuda BF&M Volunteer Programme hopes to enlist more than 500 volunteers to serve on 17 committees for the golf tournament.
Sean Sovacool, the executive director of the Bermuda Championship, said: “The Bermuda Championship wouldn’t be possible without the unwavering support and dedication from our volunteers.
“They are the heart and soul behind this even, and we are thrilled to continue working with BF&M to help ensure our volunteers receive a memorable experience on the course.”
Volunteers will be required to work at least three shifts, each between four and six hours, and will receive several bonuses including official tournament clothing, accessories and free lunches.
Services will include gallery management, score-keeping, television spotting and product distribution.
The volunteer programme is open to anyone aged 18 or older and does not require any knowledge of golf.
Junior Volunteers aged 13 to 17 can serve in a limited capacity, including as a standard bearer, which will involve walking inside the ropes with a player group and carrying a scoring standard, and will receive community service hours for their work.
John Wight, the group chairman and chief executive officer of BF&M, said the company was “delighted” to sponsor the Bermuda Championship Volunteer Programme for the third consecutive year.
He added: “It is gratifying to see so many people from our community being a part of a world-class event.
“Each and every one of them plays an important role in making the Championship such a success and in representing Bermuda as a premier sporting venue.”
The Bermuda Championship will be held between October 25 and October 31 at Port Royal Golf Course, Southampton.
Applicants who apply early are more likely to be placed in their preferred committees.
Gallery management ambassadors can also participate in the Adopt a Hole Programme, where they can represent a specific club or company by assembling a group manage a hole throughout the tournament.
