    The Emerald Coast Classic at Sandestin will be played at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort’s Raven Golf Club the week of March 29 – April 4, with 156 players competing for a $600,000 purse. This will be the fourth 2021 tournament scheduled on the PGA’s Korn Ferry Tour.
    Volunteers, both men and women of high school age and over, will play a major part in a wide variety of roles to assist in executing the area’s premier professional golf tournament. Whether one is a golf novice, an avid fan, have volunteered in the past, or a new volunteer, there is a place for everyone. The Emerald Coast Classic will be a great opportunity to see professional athletes, as well as to enjoy watching golf and enjoying some outdoor fresh air.
    Tournament Director, Eddie Goodman, added, “We are looking for several volunteer nurses to be on board during the week that can work in our medical tent. Our front-line care workers are much appreciated, volunteering at the Classic might be a nice change of pace for them. Interested nurses should contact our Volunteer Coordinator directly at selina@globalgolfmanagment.com.”
    There are numerous volunteer perks offered:
    One Tournament Polo Shirt
    One Tournament Ball Cap
    Meals provided on the days one volunteers
    One Tournament Volunteer Credential (valid all week for free admittance)
    Up to four Weekly Grounds Tickets for family and friends
