The 2017 BMW Golf Championship returns to Chicagoland September 12-17 at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, IL. The tournament would not be possible without the help and support of 1,700 volunteers.
Illinois Park and Recreation Association members and friends have an opportunity to volunteer at a professional sporting event that:

Supports the Western Golf Association Evans Scholars Foundation;
Through the Western Golf Association, provides $5,000 to the Illinois Park and Recreation Foundation for student and professional continuing education scholarships!
With the help of the Western Golf Association, we want to make the registration process as easy as possible for you. In an effort to make sure we can assign IPRA members together, we have created a separate volunteer type specific to IPRA members. To register, please follow the steps below:

Select IPRA volunteer and enter the code IPRA
You can select positions in Access Control, Admissions (our two highest needs), Merchandise, and Corporate Hospitality.
Fill out the brief registration form and pay the $98.00 volunteer package fee

We are asking IPRA volunteers to work at least 2 sessions throughout tournament week. If you can work more than 2 sessions, please indicate that on your registration. We know that many of you will be traveling long distances, so we are happy to work with you to make it an enjoyable experience. (The registration will ask you to select 3 days, but we will make sure to check your availability before we start the scheduling process.)
The BMW Championship and Western Golf Association look forward to working with IPRA members and friends and are so appreciative of your support!
