Atlanta golf geeks are already gaga over next year’s PGA Championship, taking place at the Atlanta Athletic Club in John’s Creek. The final “”major”” of the year, the PGA Championship is, as they say “”kind of a big deal””. And the fact that it’s being held at the Atlanta Athletic Club is also noteworthy: it’s the third time (1981 and 2001) that the club has hosted the event.
Of course, you can buy tickets. Or… you can become a part of the event!
From the PGA:
The 2011 PGA Championship will have a limited number of volunteer positions available (22 years of age and older). If you are interested in becoming a PGA Championship volunteer, log on to www.pga2011.com, and click on Volunteers. You can complete the volunteer information online or print an application and return it via U.S. mail.
The volunteer/uniform fee is $190, plus sales tax ($190 + $13.30 GA sales tax = $203.30). For this fee, volunteers will receive a volunteer uniform, a copy of the official 93rd PGA Championship journal, meal and water vouchers, off-site parking and shuttle service to the Championship, as well as a round of golf at one of Canongate?s 23 Metro Atlanta golf courses (tee times subject to availability, advance booking required, cart fee will apply). In addition, you will receive a PGA Volunteer Badge which will give you access to the grounds all seven days of event week (Monday, August 8 through Sunday, August 14, 2011).
It is requested that each adult volunteer contribute a minimum of 16 hours, but also be flexible to meet the needs of the committee before, during, and after the event.
Demand is high! Positions will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
