The Westchester Country Club is looking for volunteers for the US Women’s Am

The Westchester Country Club is looking for volunteers to work on and off the course during the 121st US Women’s Amateur Championship, which runs August 2-8.

There are two stroke play qualifying rounds with the best 64 players advancing to match play.

Help is needed most on the course. The organizing committee is looking for additional marshals, forecaddies and flag bearers. Most open shifts are mid-week. Volunteers may also be called upon to work as match cart drivers, shuttle cart drivers, walk markers, and bib collectors. Help is also needed for the information of spectators and inside the seat of the volunteers.

Stewards’ shifts begin with practice rounds on July 31 and August 1.

Volunteers as young as 12 years old can be flag bearers. They can also work in another capacity alongside a parent. There is a fee of $ 55 for a uniform, which consists of a championship shirt and hat. If this expense is an obstacle, the club will help on a case-by-case basis. A meal voucher is also included with each shift as well as on-site parking.

There are also daily raffle prizes for volunteers.

Volunteers are expected to attend a training session at the Westchester Country Club on July 25 or 27.
