Volunteers Needed For 2010
U.S. Senior Open At Sahalee
February 18, 2009
As a member of the United States Golf Association, we
invite you to sign up as a volunteer for the 2010 U.S.
Senior Open Championship, July 26-Aug. 1, 2010, at Sahalee
Country Club in Sammamish, Wash. This is a special
opportunity for you to register
in advance of the
and secure your committee of choice.
This is the first time the U.S. Senior Open has been
contested in the Pacific Northwest since 1982, when Miller
Barber shot a final round 65 at the Portland (Ore.) Golf
Club to set the 72-hole Senior Open scoring record of 282.
Barber also captured the 1984 and 1985 championships.
Carved out of the majestic Cedar and Douglas Fir native
to the Pacific Northwest, Sahalee is a championship course
in the truest sense of the word: It hosted the 1998 PGA
Championship, won by Vijay Singh, and in 2002 was the
setting for the World Golf Championship's NEC Invitational,
when Australian Craig Parry claimed the title. Next year,
the U.S. Senior Open field will include Seattle's own Fred
Couples, as well as other Champions Tour greats like Peter
Jacobsen, Ben Crenshaw, Hale Irwin, Tom Watson and Greg
Norman. Some 125,000 spectators are expected to attend the
Open championship throughout the week.
To help make this U.S. Senior Open a success, more than
3,000 volunteers will be recruited to work on 30 different
committees, including Admissions/Will Call, Caddie
Hospitality, VIP Transportation and Gallery Control.
Volunteers are truly the backbone of every USGA
championship, and we could not hold the U.S. Senior Open
without their help and support.
