GRAND BLANC — Tournament officials announced today that volunteer registration for the inaugural playing of The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren is now open to the public at www.theallychallenge.com/volunteers.
The 2018 Ally Challenge will be held Sept. 10-16 at historic Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club.
“We are extremely excited to open volunteer registration and begin working with a very special group of people that will become the lifeblood of The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren,” said tournament director Chris Coffman. “Our volunteers will play an essential role in every aspect of the tournament and are vital to our goal of providing charitable dollars to the community.”
Volunteers have a variety of different areas available to choose from during registration.
These areas represent the many tasks required to conduct a PGA TOUR Champions Event. A description of each area is available at www.theallychallenge.com/volunteers.
All volunteers receive a uniform that consists of a golf shirt and visor or cap. Volunteers also receive a commemorative pin and meals for each day they work. In addition, all volunteers are provided an official tournament credential and one weekly grounds ticket; both include access to the highly anticipated Big & Rich concert on Sept. 14, following the completion of the first round of the tournament. Moreover, all volunteers are invited to attend a catered post-tournament party immediately following play on Sunday, Sept. 16. To cover the cost of the uniform volunteers are charged a fee of $45. These contributions represent an additional way volunteers help maximize the charitable donations the tournament will provide to the community.
The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren will be one of the premier Regular Season events on the PGA TOUR Champions in 2018, which will give way to the third-annual Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs – a season-ending, three tournament series used to determine the Tour’s season-long champion.
All three rounds of The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren will be broadcast on Golf Channel.
