Prince Edward Island Open Volunteer Role Descriptions 

(Tuesday, June 28th - Sunday, July 3rd)

Cart Host (Tuesday & Wednesday)

These individuals will help with the Kane-Simmonds Classic. Each individual will have a designated cart and will act as a team’s host while out on the course - providing food, beverage, etc to the participating amateurs and professionals. Great opportunity to chat and get to know a PGA TOUR Canada professional! 

 

Walking Scorers (Thursday - Sunday)

These individuals will walk 18 holes with a designated group and input each player’s score and stroke trail (i.e. where the player hit from—tee, fairway, bunker, green, etc.) into a scoring device. Volunteers should have a strong golf knowledge and are comfortable with basic technology. Must be able to walk 10km. 

 

Leaderboards (Thursday - Sunday)

There are three (3) manually operated leaderboards located around the golf course. Volunteers will use tablets to look up live scoring information and replicate that information on a manual leaderboard. 

 

Standard Bearers (Saturday & Sunday)

Standard Bearers walk with the group and the walking scorer, posting each competitor in the groups score (To Par) on a standard for spectators to see. This is a physically demanding position, as you will be required to walk a minimum of 18 holes and carry a standard. 

 

Scoring Central (Thursday - Sunday) 

This group will be located in a stationary position within the clubhouse and are responsible for managing the TOUR’s Shotlink scoring system. These volunteers will ensure that scores inputted by Walking Scorers are accurate and transmit ruling requests to Rules Officials. Volunteers should have a strong knowledge of golf and be highly efficient with computers. 

 

Player Shuttle (Thursday - Sunday)

These individuals will shuttle PGA TOUR Canada Professionals from hole #2 to #3 on Dundarave during tournament play.

 

Marshals (Thursday - Sunday)

These individuals are primarily stationary and work to control spectators on the golf course, and assist players with locating tee shots.

 

Billet (Monday - Sunday)

Billets shall provide players with a private room, proper bed (no futons or pull-out couches), access to a bathroom/shower and the kitchen, and  transportation to the Dundarave Golf Course. Although very appreciated by the players, all other amenities (i.e. full access to the house, cooked meals, etc.) are optional and considered above and beyond. Billets should also be located within 20 minutes of the golf course. This might be your chance to meet the next Mike Weir or Corey Conners!
