Year after year, the tournament's dedicated volunteer corps, some 1,200 members strong, receive the PGA TOUR's highest rating for their dedication and professionalism.
Without such a dedicated group of volunteers, the Heritage Classic Foundation would not be able to generate the dollars it distributes to worthy recipients.
Volunteers serve in many areas during tournament week. Marshals, Shotlink/Laser, Walking Scorers and Couriers are some of the committees that work on the course. While Transportation, Day Care and Parking are a few of the committees that work off the course.
