Join us at The Ellie Mae Classic

The Ellie Mae Classic is a massive undertaking – and the success of the Tournament depends on the commitment of many volunteers to assist in several aspects of the tournament. We can’t do this without you!

The PGA Tour relies on thousands of volunteers each year to run its events. At the Ellie Mae Classic, our volunteers will play an invaluable role in making sure the event runs smoothly.

Each volunteer is required to purchase a uniform and package. Your $45 volunteer package provides you a behind-the-scene, unparalleled PGA TOUR experience and includes:

  • A uniform package includes a polo shirt & cap. (Volunteers must wear the proper uniform during their shifts) Men may wear khaki pants or knee length shorts – women may wear khaki pants, skirts, capris or knee length shorts.
  • Complimentary food & beverage on all days that you work
  • Access to the Tournament Grounds for the week – Badge credential
  • Two (2) additional “good any one day” grounds tickets.
  • Free parking all week

Additionally, all volunteers who complete 3 or more shifts qualify to play in our Volunteer Play Day (free round of golf at TPC Stonebrae)

Player Housing

There is nothing quite like housing a professional golfer in the midst of the high-stakes pursuit of a Web.com TOUR Champion title and a coveted PGA TOUR card. We welcome 156 of the world’s most talented golfers to TPC Stonebrae on July 31 – August 6th and finding host families to provide them a room to stay is a much appreciated and fun way for us to support our professionals!
