Here’s a chance to get up close and personal with a golf course the masses don’t normally get to experience on a daily basis. The United States Golf Association needs some 2,600 volunteers to help run the 2013 U.S. Women’s Open, which runs June 24-30 at Sebonack Golf Club.
The course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Doak, and sits next door to National out in Southampton. The views alone make the ride tolerable.
Applying online now allows volunteers to specify their committee preference. Go to www.2013uswomensopen.com for a full description of the various committee responsibilities. All volunteers are required to purchase the volunteer package for $125, which includes two championship golf shirts, 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.
