Bridgewater, N.J. – The Somerset County Park Commission and the United States Golf Association (USGA) are seeking volunteers to support the 2012 U.S. Woman’s Amateur Public Links Championship that will be contested from June 18-23 at Neshanic Valley Golf Course in Neshanic Station, N.J.

The U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship was inaugurated in 1977 as an opportunity for public-course players to compete for a national championship. It is open to female amateur golfers who are bona fide public-course players and who hold a USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 18.4. Participants in the 2012 Championship will have qualified for play at sectional competition contested throughout the United States. It is one of only 13 national championships conducted by the USGA annually.

Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and are needed to serve as on-course marshals, support for scoring and transportation, and a variety of other functions throughout the six-day championship. Individuals volunteering are required to purchase official uniform shirts at $25 each or a shirt and hat for $30. The official shirt must be worn while on duty, matched with the individual’s own khaki slacks, Bermuda-style shorts, or skirts.

Volunteers who work a minimum of three 6-hour shifts during the course of the week will be invited to play in the “Supporters and Volunteers” outing that will take place at Neshanic Valley during the week following the Championship.

The mail-in Volunteer application is available on the Somerset County Park Commission web site at www.somersetcountyparks.org. The event code is “volunteer.”

Questions regarding the volunteer needs and procedures may be directed to Gary Wendorf, Green Knoll Golf Course in Bridgewater, N.J., gwendorf@scparks.org or 908-722-1301.
