Volunteers are assigned to a variety of committees, performing the many tasks required to conduct a PGA TOUR event. A description of each committee will be available for your review prior to your selection of committee choices.

The great majority of volunteer requirements are Wednesday through Sunday of tournament week, but some assistance may be required before and after the tournament. Committee Descriptions include the days each committee operates. These days may be subject to change.

Depending on the committee on which you serve, the average workday is 5 to 6 hours long. Some assignments may require longer days, particularly Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Each volunteer is encouraged to work at least three days, but most choose to work more.

Volunteer registration for 2023 will open February 27, 2023.

Of course, the players and spectators greatly appreciate the efforts of our Volunteers – it’s no secret that the success of the event depends on our Volunteer force. Volunteers are the heartbeat of the tournament and help enhance the experience for players, spectators and sponsors. All the while helping the local community who receive charitable donations from the tournament. The Barbasol Championship has many charitable partners.
