Get Behind the Scenes

Volunteering is an amazing way to get a behind-the-scenes look at a professional golf tournament and experience up-close-and personal the operations of this exciting event.

Each LPGA event is a massive undertaking, and the success of the Tournament depends on the commitment of a small army of volunteers. Each year, hundreds of volunteers donate their time to serve critical needs such as marshaling, scoring, transportation, hospitality services and many other important jobs.
