Please note that we WILL be offering a round of golf this year at either Keene Run Golf Club or Keene Trace Golf Club. ONLY volunteers that have worked a minimum of 3 shifts will qualify for the round of golf.

Timeframe for playing the round of golf will be from November 1, 2024 – February 28, 2025 and the round of golf is non-transferrable.

Volunteers will provide their own khaki bottoms. Volunteers are required to wear the uniform on the days they are working.

Volunteers are assigned to a variety of committees, performing the many tasks required to conduct a PGA TOUR event. A description of each committee will be available for your review prior to your selection of committee choices.

The great majority of volunteer requirements are Wednesday through Sunday of tournament week, but some assistance may be required before and after the tournament. Committee Descriptions include the days each committee operates. These days may be subject to change.

Depending on the committee on which you serve, the average workday is 5 to 6 hours long. Some assignments may require longer days, particularly Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Each volunteer is encouraged to work at least three days, but most choose to work more.

Volunteer registration for 2024 are open!

Of course, the players and spectators greatly appreciate the efforts of our Volunteers – it’s no secret that the success of the event depends on our Volunteer force. Volunteers are the heartbeat of the tournament and help enhance the experience for players, spectators and sponsors. All the while helping the local community who receive charitable donations from the tournament. The ISCO Championship has many charitable partners. Our charity umbrella is Caddie127 which empowers women and protects children in Kentucky. You can learn more about Caddie127 at caddie127.org

In the past two years of the ISCO Championship, Volunteers have helped raise $640,000 for Caddie127 and its charities. The PGA TOUR and its tournaments have surpassed $3Billion in all-time charitable giving in 2020. The charitable total, which includes a record $204.3 million in 2019 brought the all-time total to $3.05 billion, including donations made by tournaments on the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions, Korn Ferry Tour, Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada, PGA TOUR Latinoamérica and PGA TOUR Series-China.

Yes. Volunteers can be refunded until June 28, 2024. If you would like to donate your registration fee all proceeds will go to Caddie127 supporting local Kentucky charities.
