Five Skipton Golf Club members have just returned from Dubai after working as volunteers on the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, the final European Tour event in the “Race to Dubai”. This is one of the most high profile events on the European Tour and brings together the top 60 golfers, the top 10 of whom compete for a Bonus Pool of some $5,000,000. The tournament itself has a prize fund of some $8,000,000! Needless to say, every golfer wants to be in a position to play for this Prize Fund.
Like Alistair, Paul and Amanda had worked on the tournament in previous years and are similarly enthusiastic about the volunteering opportunity. Not only does it give you the chance to work closely alongside and observe some of the world’s most famous golfers ply their trade, it also allows you to mix volunteering with a holiday in Dubai, all this under glorious and sun-filled blue skies.
Alistair Coy actually writes a blog while working on the tournament and this provides a great insight for prospective future volunteers. Details can be found at http://www.alindubai.blogspot.com and if any member has any questions after reading, then Alistair or any of the other members would be more than happy to discuss their experiences. Alternatively, you can e-mail Chief Marshal, Jenni Hoskins directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
