Volunteers will be needed from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. but can select time slots that fit best with their personal availability. We strongly recommend volunteers bring a hat, sun screen, reusable water bottle and an umbrella and chair if serving as a hole-in-one witness. Nice casual attire requested.

Hole-in-One Contest Hole Witness: Volunteers, age 18 or older and not playing in the tournament, are needed to sit at a designated hole on the golf course to watch if a player hits a hole-in-one shot. In golf, a hole-in-one is when a ball hit from a tee shot finishes in the cup. This awards the player a score of one for the hole. Holes-in-one commonly occur on par 3 holes, the shortest distance holes on a standard golf course.

There will be designated holes with a prize to win should a player hit a hole-in-one shot. This golf shot must be verified by the witness in order for the player to win the prize at the hole. Volunteers will have 2 hour shifts. Two volunteers per shift is ideal. A "hole in one" occurs when the golfer gets his golf ball into the cup on the green with just one stroke. That means hitting the ball directly from the teeing ground into the hole. His or her score for the hole is 1.
