Brookline Residents May Sign Up to Volunteer Beginning on Monday, March 29, Two Weeks Before the General Public
BROOKLINE — Town Administrator Mel Kleckner announces that Brookline residents will have an early opportunity to register to volunteer for the 122nd U.S. Open Championship, which will be held at The Country Club from June 13-19, 2022.
Beginning on Monday, March 29 at 9 a.m., the first 500 Brookline residents to submit a volunteer application through the U.S. Open website (www.usga.org/2022usovolunteers) and utilize the registration code “2022BrooklineRes” will secure a position in the championship’s volunteer program.
After the first 500 spots are filled, Brookline residents will still have the opportunity to register in conjunction with the general public volunteer launch, which is scheduled for Monday, April 12 at 9 a.m. (where remaining volunteer positions will be available on a first-come, first-served basis).
For the 2022 U.S. Open Championship, approximately 3,100 unpaid volunteers will be needed to fill positions on more than 13 committees, including Fan and Hospitality Services, Marshals, Merchandising, On-Course Operations, and Scoring. Volunteer opportunities are largely granted on a first-come, first-served basis and will require a minimum commitment of four shifts, with each shift lasting between four to six hours during the week of the championship.
All 2022 U.S. Open volunteers will be required to purchase the Volunteer Package for $244.45. This package will include apparel pieces specifically designed for the championship’s volunteer program, a personalized volunteer credential valid for all seven days of the championship, and a meal voucher for each assigned shift. Volunteer apparel will consist of two Ralph Lauren golf shirts, a Ralph Lauren jacket, a Ralph Lauren quarter-zip, a piece of headwear, a water bottle, a commemorative lapel pin, and a transparent drawstring bag.
This advanced volunteer registration opportunity is only intended for Brookline residents. Volunteer applications submitted via the use of the “2022BrooklineRes” volunteer registration code will be subject to review and required to have a permanent Town of Brookline residential address. Non-Brookline resident applications will not be considered during this advanced volunteer registration opportunity.
Non-Brookline residents are encouraged to visit the U.S. Open Volunteer Website at www.usga.org/2022usovolunteers beginning on Monday, April 12 at 9 a.m. to register in conjunction with the general public launch.
