Volunteers needed for Big West golf championships

WAILUA — The Big West Men’s Golf Championship is coming to the Wailua Golf Course, hosted by the University of Hawaii Men’s Golf program, and UH is seeking volunteers to assist in the tournament on April 29 and 30.

“We are looking for as many volunteers that we can get to help out with the Big West Championship,” said University of Hawaii golf coach Ronn Miyashiro in an email request to Don Cunningham of the North Shore Kane Golf Club. “Though the number of tournament participants is about half of what we get at the Warrior Invitational in Princeville event, we are needing close to double the amount of volunteers due to the Big West Conference host school requirements.”

Miyashiro said the requirements include Live Scoring volunteers of at least 15 on each day, breaking down to one person being assigned to each group.

Tournament format calls for 36 holes being played on April 29, and 18 holes on April 30.

More volunteers are needed as shuttle drivers, the requirement being at least six individuals per day. These shuttle drivers will shuttle players from the No. 9 to No. 10 tees, and from the No. 18 to the No. 1 tees.

“The main requirement is that volunteers must have a valid driver’s license as they will be driving carts around the NCAA athletes,” Cunningham said.

There is a need of two starters for each day, those individuals having the responsibility of introducing by name and school of players teeing off on the first and 10th tee during the mornings of each day.

Starters also distribute pin sheets and make announcements.

There is also a need for two volunteers each day for hospitality responsibilities.
