Volunteers Needed for the Sentry Tournament of Champions
With the Sentry Tournament of Champions less than three months away, the tournament has announced that volunteer opportunities are still available for the 2019 event when the winners-only tournament returns to The Plantation Course at Kapalua from January 2-6, 2018.
The event offers a variety of opportunities to get involved and up close with some of the game’s biggest stars that have qualified for the event, such as defending champion and current World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, reigning FedExCup champion Justin Rose and 2018 PGA Tour Player of the Year Brooks Koepka.
There are various fields that perspective volunteers can be grouped, including On-Road Transportation and On-Course Marshal. On-Road Transportation is a great opportunity to get involved while staying cool in an air-conditioned van. On-Road Transportation volunteers help friendly spectators and fellow volunteers get to their destinations safely within beautiful and easy to navigate Kapalua Resort.
Volunteer positions as On-Course Marshals are available for those looking to be closer to the competition inside the ropes. On-Course Marshals assist with crowd control, player and spectator safety and contribute to uninterrupted play by locating stray shots.
Volunteers working five shifts or more receive two uniform shirts, one cap and one hip pack, one weekly pass to the tournament, shift meals and one complimentary round of golf at The Bay Course (restrictions apply). Volunteers working less than five shifts (three-shift minimum) receive one uniform shirt, a cap or visor and hip pack, shift meals and one weekly pass to the tournament. All volunteers are invited to enjoy food, drinks and raffle prizes at the Volunteer Appreciation party on Saturday, January 5.
New this year is the Volunteer Referral Program – people who volunteered at the tournament in 2017 or 2018 and plan to volunteer in 2019 can refer a friend to volunteer for a minimum of five (5) shifts for the 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions and receive a Greg Norman jacket with the tournament logo. Contact your chairperson for full details (one jacket maximum).
Volunteers are an essential part of the Sentry Tournament of Champions and make it possible to conduct a world-class tournament. The event has served as one of the premier marketing vehicles for the state, showcasing the beauty of our islands via 70+ hours of television programming throughout the world to millions of viewers. It also provides a significant economic impact, and equally important, a charitable impact for Maui’s worthy non-profits. With the help of our sponsors, resort and community partners, and our volunteers, the event has raised more than $6.3 million since 1999.
