Rolling Green Golf Club will have the distinct honor of hosting the 116th U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, August 1 – 7, 2016. We are certain that this historic event will prove to be a memorable and enjoyable experience for the golf fans in the Delaware Valley.
The Club would be unable to host this event without the help of a dedicated volunteer contingent. Volunteer recruitment will launch in the spring – updates will be on this site once the schedule for registration is finalized. Anyone over the age of 13 may register to volunteer.
Descriptions of the volunteer positions available at the championship are listed below. When registering, you will have the opportunity to select your volunteer position. Volunteer positions will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so please register early. Volunteers will be trained in advance of the event in the duties of their selected position. The $55 volunteer package will include the volunteer uniform (two Adidas shirts, a golf cap and a drawstring knapsack), breakfast or lunch during any shift, and access to the on-site volunteer headquarters facility.
Thank you for your interest in the championship! We look forward to seeing you at the club next summer and appreciate your support of the event!
