By charging a modest fee, the tournament is able to reduce overhead costs as a nonprofit organization, ensuring that more proceeds benefit local charities. The Travelers Championship has one of the lowest priced volunteer packages on the PGA TOUR.
The volunteer package is valued at over $600 and not only consists of the required volunteer uniform but also food and beverage during shifts, digital volunteer tickets valid on days not volunteering, a digital guest ticket per day (Wed-Sun), and many other volunteer perks. We work very hard to keep this cost as low as possible, as we continue to enhance the volunteer experience each year.

Yes! One of the great perks of volunteering is that you will receive digital volunteer tickets for each day of the tournament. On days that you are not scheduled to work, we encourage you to come out and enjoy the day!
Please note that if you do not show up for your scheduled volunteer shifts, your complimentary digital tickets will be deactivated.
Volunteers are not permitted to ask for autographs while volunteering and in uniform. However, on days that you are enjoying the tournament as a spectator, we encourage you to follow the PGA TOUR autograph policy outlined below:
- Autographs can only be obtained at the designated Autograph Zone at the Practice Facility
- On-course autographs are not permitted. This includes, but not limited to tees, fairways, greens and practice areas during practice and tournament rounds
- No memorabilia can be brought into the tournament including pin flags, photos, training cards, balls and other sports paraphernalia
In your volunteer package you will receive a clear bag that aligns with our bag policy. We recommend using this bag to carry all your belongings while on-course.
Travel sunscreen is available in the Volunteer Villa, however, we also recommend bringing your own if needed!
Depending on your volunteer position, we recommend bringing a foldable chair to utilize if you are a location based operator, gallery or spotter volunteer. Although a foldable chair is permitted, it must be without the chair bag. In addition, you may bring your own bug spray if your position is outside.
Reusable plastic or metal cups/bottles are permitted, however, they must be empty upon entry. Please note, that there are not refillable water jugs available.
All volunteers are required to work a minimum of (3) half-day shifts or (2) full-day shifts depending on the committee’s requirements. Please check out the committee page for details on each team’s committee requirements.
Committees with a security code mean that the committee is private and has limited staffing. If you are interested in a committee with a security code, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order for your registration to be considered “complete”, all volunteers must pay for their volunteer package. Once you have purchased your package, you will then be placed into your committee(s) and shift time(s) within one to three business days. Committee and shift preferences are given on a first-come, first-served basis. If for some reason you have not been assigned a committee, the committee or shifts you selected may have been filled. Please reach out to email@example.com.
Absolutely! During registration, there is a specific question that will ask if there is another volunteer(s) you would like to volunteer with. If you plan to volunteer with more than one person, please collectively chose one person’s name as a representative that can be entered during your individual registrations. By doing this, we will be able to easily identify you group members.
Volunteers are most needed on Saturday and Sunday! We encourage you to come enjoy championship weekend from behind-the-scenes.
