Rex Hospital Open Needs Volunteers Like You
Officials 500+ Volunteers Needed to Execute Premier Web.com Tour Golf Tournament

RALEIGH, N.C. — Rex Healthcare is seeking interested volunteers for this year’s Rex Hospital Open, an official week-long stop on the PGA TOUR’s Web.com Tour. This year’s tournament will take place at TPC at Wakefield Plantation in Raleigh from May 19–25 and will need more than 500 volunteers. Volunteers help in presenting the best professional golf event in the Triangle, and give back to the community by participating in one of the region’s largest charity fundraisers. It’s also a great opportunity to see rising golf stars, like Raleigh’s own champion Chesson Hadley, compete to earn their PGA TOUR card and to earn a free round of golf.

“Each year the Rex Hospital Open gets bigger and better,” said Carson Gilbert, tournament director of the Rex Hospital Open. “We hope that volunteers will join us in May to welcome players and fans as they compete for a Web.com Tour win on our beautiful course in Raleigh.”

Volunteer opportunities include scorers, course marshals, shuttle service, merchandise sales, hospitality services and more. This year’s volunteers will receive:

  • One Tournament polo shirt
  • One Tournament ball cap or visor
  • For an additional fee, you may purchase a Tournament wind jacket (must be pre-ordered)
  • Free breakfast and lunch on the days that you volunteer
  • Tournament volunteer badge, which is good for free admittance all week
  • Up to six free weekly guest badges to give to family or friends
  • Admittance to a Volunteer Appreciation Party
  • Free parking in the volunteer parking lot with frequent shuttles to and from the course
  • And one voucher for a free round of golf at TPC at Wakefield Plantation (cart fee not included) if you work three or more shifts!

Rex charity golf has raised more than $8.5 million to support patients, programs and services at Rex Hospital. Funds raised this year will benefit Rex Heart & Vascular programs and services.
