Volunteer Info

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 2017 U.S. Open Championship at Erin Hills! Due to an overwhelming response we are no longer accepting applications for the waitlist.

If you have already submitted a volunteer application for 2017, please read the following information regarding the timeline carefully.

Erin Hills will host the 117th U.S. Open Championship from June 12-18, 2017. Approximately 5,000 dedicated individuals comprise the Volunteer Program for the 2017 U.S. Open! It is our goal to provide each volunteer with a unique and exciting experience during the championship. Should you have any questions regarding the application, please contact the Championship Office at [email protected].

All volunteers for the 2017 U.S. Open Championship will volunteer for a minimum of four (4) shifts with each shift lasting between five (5) to six (6) hours, and will be responsible for arriving at their assigned positions on time, without the use of cart transportation. Volunteers will not be paid wages or compensated in any other manner in exchange for their volunteer activities. Volunteers will be required to purchase the Volunteer Apparel Package for $175. As part of the Volunteer Package, volunteers will receive apparel pieces specifically designed for the 2017 U.S. Open Championship, a credential valid for all seven (7) days of the championship and a meal voucher for each assigned shift. The Volunteer Package will consist of two (2) golf shirts, a wind jacket and a piece of headwear, provided by Ralph Lauren. Please DO NOT submit payment for the Volunteer Package with your application. A separate invoice will be sent to you after you are approved as a volunteer.

In early July, accepted volunteers will be notified of their final committee assignment. At that time, volunteers will also receive an invoice for the volunteer package and confirmation of their apparel sizes. The volunteer package includes your volunteer apparel and a credential, which grants you access to the championship for all seven days. Please note, volunteers will be subject to a criminal history background check and/or a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) driving record check based on committee assignment.
