Cape Breton Open a chance to watch pro golf up close
Organizers still looking for more volunteers - with or without experience
The 2017 Cape Breton Open is looking in great shape according to Executive Director Sandy Campbell. However, organizers are still looking for volunteers to help out with the event which will be raising funds for the Cape Breton Hospital Foundation.
"It's a busy weekend and people that were available last year are not available this year for whatever reason. So, anybody that would like to score or caddy or marshal we'd love them to get in contact with me...295-1106 or go to www.capebretonopen.com," said Joe Metz, CBO Volunteer Coordinator. “
“No experience is required. No minimum commitment. There's going to be training sessions for scoring and caddying and marshalling."
What do volunteers get out of it?
"Everybody who has ever volunteered gets so much more than they even think they are going to get. They get to walk with players, they get to see what a professional event is all about. I've never heard anybody say they had a bad time."
