Online volunteer registration for the 2021 Sanderson Farms Championship officially opens Tuesday, June 1. Individuals interested in volunteering for the tournament may register here. The tournament will be held September 27 – October 3, 2021 at The Country Club of Jackson, Mississippi.
The Sanderson Farms Championship offers a unique volunteer experience for all ages. Volunteer opportunities include serving as a Gallery Ambassador, with Competitions Support as a Laser Operator or Ball Spotter, to walking the course as a Pro-Am caddie or standard bearer.
“Mississippi’s reputation as “The Hospitality State” is well deserved, and proven time and again by the lifeblood of The Sanderson Farms Championship – our volunteers – who proudly continue to keep our tournament running smoothly by returning year after year,” said Pat Busby, Century Club Charities president. “I am always impressed by the willingness of our volunteers to take time away from their busy lives, and come from around the state, all to help the beneficiaries of our charities, including Friends of Children’s Hospital supporting Children’s of Mississippi.”
Executive Director Steve Jent added, “We are grateful that we have many groups and individuals who volunteer in order to make our PGA TOUR event a first-class operation. Their efforts are the key to a successful tournament.”
Each volunteer will receive a volunteer package including a Sanderson Farms Championship logoed golf shirt and hat, a volunteer credential, 4 Good-Any-Day tickets, the opportunity to play a round at The Country Club of Jackson during Volunteer Play Day (minimum 20 hours worked), food and beverage during volunteer shifts, and an invitation to the Volunteer Party (date TBD). The volunteer package is valued over $300, but the volunteer fee is only $50.
Volunteers are encouraged to sign up early to reserve their preferred area of service and, in addition, will receive an outerwear gift from Sanderson Farms.
