More than 2,000 volunteers will be on hand to help ensure the 2018 BMW Championship’s success for players and patrons when Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, hosts the tournament in September 2018.

Registration for positions is now open to the public, the Western Golf Association, which is conducting the event, has announced. Volunteers perform key tasks inside and outside the ropes during tournament week, including serving as marshals, assisting with player and VIP transportation and helping welcome thousands of patrons to the event each day.

“The BMW Championship could not happen without the dedication and enthusiasm of our volunteers,” said Vince Pellegrino, WGA Senior Vice President of Tournaments. “We’re grateful for all that our volunteers contribute to the success of our event.”

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and commit to work at least three shifts during tournament week. Shifts range from 4-6 hours in length, depending on assignment.

“This is a great opportunity for golf fans in greater Philadelphia to show their support for professional championships in our region and experience all that goes into staging a PGA TOUR event,” said Joe Fabrizio, Aronimink Golf Club president. “We look forward to having our neighbors and friends join us for an exciting week at Aronimink.”
