John Deere TPC Sawgrass Volunteer Programme

BIGGA members are invited to apply for an incredible volunteering opportunity made possible by our Premium Partner, John Deere.


With its famous island green and stunning Florida setting, the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass is considered among the most spectacular golfing challenges in the world.

Each year the PGA Tour headquarters hosts The PLAYERS Championship, with the home greenkeeping supported by a multi-national team of volunteers, including representatives from each of BIGGA's five Regions.

We're looking for six members, one from each of BIGGA's five Regions and an additional overseas member, who will be flown to Ponte Vedra Beach in Florida courtesy of BIGGA Premium Partner John Deere, who will also provide accommodation, food and uniform for the duration of the 10-day stay in America.

The application process is open to all current full BIGGA members over the age of 21, who have been a full member for at least 12 months.

The trip will take place from 9-19 March 2024 and during that period you will be fully integrated into the TPC Sawgrass agronomy and course mantainance team. It's a wonderful opportunity to get up-close experience of hosting a major PGA Tour event, all in the incredible setting of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.


Applications will reopen in 2024.
