Volunteer Registration Open for 2019 NCAA Golf Championships
Hosted at Blessings Golf Club

Two-week event looking for more than 400 volunteers. There is still time to sign up to volunteer for this special event.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Volunteer registration is now open for the 2019 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Golf Championships, being hosted by the University of Arkansas May 17 – 29 at Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville. The hosting committee is seeking over 400 volunteers to fill a variety of roles on 19 different committees, including marshals, scorers and standard bearers.

“Volunteers are crucial to the success of hosting an event of this magnitude,” said Chris Pohl, tournament director of the 2019 NCAA Golf Championships and Senior Associate Athletic Director at the University of Arkansas. “The 2019 Championships will mark the first time the University of Arkansas has hosted the final round of an NCAA Golf Championship, and we are excited to showcase our home course at Blessings Golf Club on this national stage. The community’s support is integral to making this event a memorable championship experience for all involved.”

Interested volunteers are able to choose their committee and shift preference through the online registration process, and are encouraged to register early since committees and shift times are filled on a first come first serve basis. All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and cannot be enrolled in high school to participate.
