Volunteer at Valhalla

Valhall Golf Club

If you want to be involved in the action at the 2008 Ryder Cup at Valhalla you should volunteer. This is one exciting way to participate in the event. (Note: you are volunteering to help not just attend!)
Volunteers each receive a Volunteer Badge, which grants admission to the grounds on all six days of the Ryder Cup and admission to the International Pavilion. Volunteers will also receive a volunteer uniform. The uniform will consist of a golf shirt, pants, wind jacket and hat. The particular style of headwear will be determined by the volunteer’s gender and/or committee’s function. The other perks include a copy of the official Ryder Cup Journal, parking, shuttle service to/from the event, and food/water vouchers.

The fee for volunteering is $220.

Those who previously volunteered for the 2004 Senior PGA Championship, played at Valhalla Golf Club, will receive a volunteer application for the 2008 Ryder Cup in May 2007. Volunteer applications will be available for all others in June 2007.

To register your details into The PGA of America’s data base so that you receive a volunteer application in June, please visit the PGA site here and enter your contact details.

    I was fortunate enough to Marshal the 2006 Ryder Cup –representing the USA in Ireland. The same team that was on HOLE #5 are trying to reunite in 2008–since we became such great friends in that short period of time.
    We pray we will meet every 2 years–until the end of time! Keep It In The Short Grass!

    My father, who has marshalled at the last two Ryder Cups in Europe and also at numerous events in the UK, put his name down to volunteer for Valhalla when at the K Club. He has received no information, application forms or had any correspondence. Having contacted Barry Drew he has been advised to go through this forum. You have here someone who is willing to travel across the Atlantic and provide his own accomodation as a volunteer so please can you explain to me (and I will pass it on) why his offer of assistance has not even been acknowledged.

    I was volunteer (marshal) at the 1999 Ryder Cup (Brookline) and the 1988 US Open (Brookline) and envy everyone who will be serving at this year’s event. My experiences were such that I surely count them as highlights of my life. Good luck to all – you’ll have a great time and will be impressed by the graciousness of the competitors. I should note that your handicap is irrelevant to the situation, but your impartiality and decorum is counted upon by the Ryder Cup organizers.
