Saunton is hosting the prestigious R&A Boys Amateur Championship from 9 to 18 August and requires significant greenkeeping support of at least 14 individuals to enable the course to be presented in tournament condition.

With 252 of the world’s best under-18 male golfers competing in the event, both of Saunton’s 18 hole courses will need to be presented in immaculate condition throughout the week. If you would like to volunteer to assist on any of these days (as little or as many days as you can give would be fantastic) to help us prepare for this global event, it would be very much appreciated.

A range of greenkeeping tasks will need to be covered. All equipment will be provided, but volunteers will need to bring their own work clothes and PPE (safety boots essential).

Saunton also requires at least one greenkeeper with ‘machine setting skills’ to assist the resident golf club mechanic throughout the duration of the event.

All volunteers will be provided with food and refreshments throughout, however accommodation will not be provided.

If you are able to support and gain some invaluable experience along the way, please contact Saunton General Manager Jon Sutherland, either by email using jon@sauntongolf.co.uk or by phone on 01271 812436 with your name, contact details and the dates on which you are able and willing to help.
