LPGA Classic Needs Volunteers


This tournament could be a yearly birdie-opportunity for our area.

“All these players come from all over the world and they all have their own fan base and during that week, they’re watching Green Bay, Wisconsin,” said Josh Doxtator, COO of Thornberry Creek at Oneida.

Outside of the enviable economics, the LPGA Classic needs a bit of help.
It takes about 800 volunteers to successfully run the tournament, and it needs a couple hundred more.
Positions range from controlling the ‘oohs and ahs’ of the crowd through marshaling to player transport.

“If you don’t want to be on the golf course with the players, we can do something that’s more inside,” he said. “Maybe a little bit more climate-controlled, something like that. So, we have plenty of opportunities.”

There is a $55 fee to become a volunteer, though the gig has its fair share of goodies.

“You get a shirt, a cap, a jacket, you get a round of golf here at Thornberry, you get weekly grounds passes for you and some friends, so it definitely pays for itself just by signing up,” said Doxtator.

With just about a month to go until the tournament we are getting down to the wire.
If you want an excuse to spend all day on a golf course, your chance is here.

“Year one was a huge success,” he said. “We know that in this community, they support cool things. This is as cool as it gets.”

You can get a head start on becoming a volunteer here.
