Volunteers needed at State Golf Tourney

By  | 

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Volunteers are needed to help with the Nebraska High School Class D Boys' Championship Tournament. The May 21-22 tournament is in North Platte at the Lake Maloney Golf Course. The event is expected to draw 90-110 golfers.

The greatest need is for scoring monitors. These monitors will accompany threesomes around the course in a golf cart, personally recording the hole-by-hole strokes of each golfer as well as helping with the speed of play by watching tee shots and looking for lost balls. Scoring monitors do not have to make any rules decisions. At least thirty scoring monitors will be needed throughout the tournament.

Other volunteers needed are Official Score Card Keepers, Score Board staff, Spotters, and Real Time Scorers. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Samantha Geisler at the North Platte / Lincoln County Visitors Bureau at 308-221-6865 or sgeisler@visitnorthplatte.com. You can also apply to be a volunteer online at PLAYNORTHPLATTE.COM.

Priority is given to volunteers who can work both days of the tournament. Volunteers will receive coffee and rolls in the morning, lunch, and those who did not volunteer at the girls’ tournament last fall will receive an official NSAA jacket. Deadline to volunteer is May 6th.
