This is a spectacular event played on the incredibly beautiful Montreux golf course. If you haven’t been, you really need to check it out. Better yet, get involved by volunteering to work at the event and help the tournament raise funds for our local non-profits. I hear they need more Marshals this year. Anyone can be a Marshal.

There is a $55 fee to cover the cost of the uniform and meals, but you also get 10 tickets to the event for friends ($200 value). The fee is waived for high school students and veterans. Work a couple of shifts or a day or two and the rest of the time enjoy some of the greatest golf on the planet.
