Utah Championship Committee Seeks Volunteers for Nationwide Tour Event in July

Dear UGA Member:                                                                             May 2011
 
Since 1990 the State of Utah has played host to the Nationwide Tour’s Utah Championship. The legacy of our winners starting with John Daly, Zach Johnson, Arron Oberholser, Garrett Willis, and last year’s Champion Michael Putnam have had and are having great success on the PGA TOUR. This year there have been 4 players who have won on tour that played here last year at Willow Creek C.C.
 
This year we invite you to come be inside the ropes, and see the next future stars of the PGA TOUR at the Utah Championship. We need your help in having this event, and joining the most recognized volunteer team on tour. 
This year’s tournament dates have changed to July 25th – 31st  at Willow Creek Country Club.  If you missed last year and would like to experience top level, professional golf up close and personal, here is your opportunity.
 
 Volunteer recruiting efforts are underway.  Application information can be found at www.utahchampionship.com. Job descriptions for all volunteer positions are available on the web site or you can call the tournament office (801-495-GOLF) if you have questions. Most volunteers are assigned their first choice of jobs but several positions fill up quickly so please sign up as soon as possible.  We ask volunteers to sign up for a minimum of two shifts and donate a $35 sign up fee.  In return, you will receive an official tournament golf shirt, hat or visor, a hot catered breakfast and or lunch for each shift worked, two weekly grounds passes for your family and friends, two Volunteer Appreciation parties, and the opportunity to play golf at one of the most beautiful private country clubs in Utah. 
 
In closing, I hope that you will seriously consider joining the returning volunteers along with the Golf Channel, PGA players and officials, Willow Creek staff, and the public in support of one of the top rated Nationwide Tour events on the schedule.  We cannot do it without YOU!!!
 
Sincerely;
 
Mike Smith
Tournament Director
