Each and every year, the Waste Management Phoenix Open relies on thousands of volunteers and an abundance of community support to host a successful event and the 2014 tournament was no exception. We can’t thank our volunteers enough for all that they do. Volunteering at the Waste Management Phoenix Open is not only great way to be a part of the “Greatest Show on Grass,” it also has a direct impact on the amount of charity dollars the tournament gives out each year. We look forward to another fantastic tournament week in 2015. Check back in mid-October to register to be a volunteer at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Volunteering at the Waste Management Phoenix Open offers many fun opportunities. Volunteers can interact with spectators, watch the best golf on the planet and in some cases, interact with PGA TOUR stars themselves. For the tournament to achieve our charitable goals, we need the help of thousands of volunteers to assist in a variety of roles.
NEW! Zero Waste Stations
Support the Waste Management Phoenix Open Zero Waste Challenge by volunteering at our new Zero Waste Stations! Zero Waste Stations will be set up in high traffic areas on course where fans will drop off their various waste items and volunteers will sort the materials into recycling and compost bins. Volunteers will receive a ticket to come back and enjoy the tournament for each shift completed. Zero Waste Station volunteers will help make this the “greenest” show on grass!
Concessions Volunteers will assist in various concession areas around the TPC Stadium Course during tournament week with the opportunity to interact with thousands of fans throughout the week in a fun, busy environment, right in the middle of the action.
Earn service hours for a charitable organization such as Special Olympics, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale or the Phoenix Panhellenic Association to name a few. When completing the online registration, sign up with the charity of your choice from a drop down menu.
Volunteers will provide various security measures at different locations on and around the golf course. Most of your duty will be checking credentials at various entry points.
Courtesy Cars – Transportation
Drive Waste Management Phoenix Open courtesy cars to transport players and their families, to and from Sky Harbor Airport and hotels in the North Scottsdale area. Drivers must be at least 21 years old and have a valid driver’s license. Familiarity with the north east valley is strongly encouraged.
Keep spectators behind gallery ropes & quiet gallery during play (Thursday – Sunday). Shift times vary according to the hole you are assigned to, but begin as early as 6:30 AM and continue until the end of play.
Scoring — Laser Operator
An important component of the PGA TOUR’s scoring system. Laser Operators are stationed either along the fairway or on raised platforms near the green to identify a player’s ball and then measure the distance of each shot or putt, using the laser equipment which transmits that information to the PGA TOUR Shot Link system. Volunteers must attend one mandatory training session with TOUR officials the week prior. Very easy to learn! (Thursday-Sunday)
The Patriot’s Outpost is an area set aside for our service men and women who are active, veteran and reserve. The volunteers will handle entrance to the Patriot’s Outpost, and aid in hosting the area. The volunteers will need to be computer literate and available to work at least 2 shifts during the week. Shifts start at 7:30 am and go as late as end of play (Thursday – Sunday).
A volunteer’s responsibilities are fairly simple: show up for the shifts you’ve been assigned to, perform the specific duties of your position, wear the required uniform of your position, and ensure spectators have as much fun as you do!
Each volunteer position has Volunteer Committee Chairperson. If chosen to volunteer at the tournament you will be contacted by the Volunteer Committee Chairperson in the weeks leading up to the tournament. This Volunteer Committee Chairperson will discuss schedules, requirements, benefits and responsibilities for working your assigned position.
