CARY, N.C. (April 13, 2015) – After another memorable Masters tournament over the weekend, tournament officials for the SAS Championship presented by Bloomberg Businessweek announced the opening of volunteer registration and ticket sales for the PGA TOUR’s Champions Tour event taking place at Prestonwood Country Club, Oct. 5 -11 in Cary.
“It’s hard to believe we’re celebrating 15 years of the SAS Championship this year,” said Tournament Director Jeff Kleiber. “Each year the event continues to grow in size and scale thanks to the tremendous amount of support we receive from our patrons, partners and volunteers. We’re looking forward to what lies ahead for the tournament and the outstanding community events we’ve created that add to the celebration of tournament week.”
In the 14 years of the SAS Championship, volunteers have played an integral role in the tournament’s success from its’ first tee shots in 2001, to the community-driven events like Executive Women’s Day, Food Truck Friday, Live Fearless 5k and the WakeMed Families First Fun Fest, volunteers have helped make it one of the most successful events on the Champions Tour.
Over 700 volunteers are needed for Oct. 5 – 11 and there are a number of different committees available; golf knowledge is a plus but not required.
“I hear from our volunteers all the time, many of whom have been with the event since it began, that tournament week is one of their favorite weeks of the year so I would encourage anyone interested in supporting our community to register,” said Kleiber.
Ticket options for the SAS Championship feature exclusive hospitality and parking options, including the fan-favorite Eagles’ Nest at 17 green for $100. Each Eagles’ Nest ticket includes a catered lunch, open bar and snacks at the premium hospitality suite located at the pivotal par-5 17th hole. On-site VIP parking is also available for $95.
