GREENSBORO, N.C. – A free round of golf at the Grandover Resort highlights incentives offered to volunteers for the NCAA Division III Men’s Golf Championships May 10-13. Guilford College and the Greensboro Sports Commission are co-hosting the 37-team event at Grandover, one of the Piedmont’s premier golf attractions.
Local organizers hope the chance to play on either of Grandover’s two highly rated courses will inspire golf enthusiasts to volunteer for the Piedmont’s latest national championship event. Available positions include: scorers, spotters, course shuttle drivers and range attendants. Individuals can work four-hour shifts on any of the tournament’s four days. Each volunteer receives an NCAA Championships golf shirt and invitation to a volunteer recognition event May 13.
Volunteer application forms can be found online at http://www.guilfordquakers.com/specialEvents/NCAAGolf or by calling the Greensboro Sports Commission at 336-378-4499. Volunteers who sign up for three or more shifts are eligible for a free round of golf at Grandover, listed among “America’s Best Places to Play” by Golf Digest. The free round must be reserved in advance by calling the course and played on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
Guilford’s golf team is ranked first in both NCAA Division III golf rankings and qualified for their 28th national tournament appearance by winning the Old Dominion Athletic Conference title April 19. Another area team, Greensboro College, is also ranked prominently in the national poll and earned one of six at-large berths to the tournament field. The defending tournament champion, Methodist University of Fayetteville, N.C., is another national power, which also received an at-large berth.
