Dear valued members,
For the second year, Bermuda is hosting a PGA TOUR event, The Bermuda Championship which will be held October 29 – November 1, 2019 at Port Royal Golf Course. We are reaching out to you today because, in order to ensure a successful event, we need your assistance.
We’re looking for volunteers to help showcase Bermuda at its best!
The Bermuda Championship, requires approximately 700 volunteers throughout the week. The event has many different roles open for volunteers, being a part of the volunteer team is an excellent opportunity to be inside the ropes and see some of the best athletes in the World up close and personal. There is a massive need for walking scorers and golf knowledgeable volunteers.
How do I get involved?
There are many opportunities available to be a part of this unique and special occasion, but in order for our Foundation to benefit, it is important that you register through the charitable link of the Bermuda Golf Foundation (Charity #141).
For each volunteer that registers through the Charity Volunteer program, the PGA TOUR will donate $200.00 to the Bermuda Golf Foundation which will greatly assist in the future promotion and development of golf in Bermuda and our Golf in Schools program.

Benefitting Golf in Bermuda
Many members might not be aware that the Bermuda Golf Association (BGA) has a charitable arm, The Bermuda Golf Foundation (Registered charity #141). Over the past three years, we have re-launched our Foundation, with the mandate being to grow, develop and sustain the game of golf in Bermuda.
Developing the next generation of golfers in Bermuda
Traditionally, the PGA TOUR has donated millions of charitable dollars to the local communities hosting TOUR events. A fantastic moment for our sport is upon us – an opportunity from which we will all benefit.
The donations from the PGA TOUR will assist The Bermuda Golf Foundation (BGF) in generating funds to assist us in the delivery of our long-term vision for a National Golf Plan. BGF dollars enable us to fund our Saturday junior golf lesson and playing program as well as junior tournaments throughout the year. The BGF also supports national representation in various international events and offers community events for all members to enjoy the game.
You may choose your particular area of interest from the available selection, however, the event organizers are particularly looking for knowledgeable golfers to fill the positions for Marshals and Walking Scorers – so if you don’t have a strong preference, please select one of these volunteer positions.
We need you and your family members, your friends, or your colleagues to come together and support us by volunteering and nominating the Bermuda Golf Foundation as the charity of choice!
On behalf of the Bermuda Golf Association and all those that enjoy the beautiful game, I thank you in advance for your support of this great event!
