About

Simply put, the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament would not be possible without our dedicated team of amazing volunteers. Their hard work and professionalism have earned one of the PGA TOUR's highest ratings, year after year. The generous support of our RBC Heritage Volunteer Team makes it possible for the Tournament’s general sponsor, the Heritage Classic Foundation, to consistently make substantial contributions to local charities.

Interested applicants must live or have accommodations within 1.5 hours of Hilton Head for the week of the Tournament and agree to work a minimum of 16 hours, or 4 shifts, depending on the committee. Certain committees have additional training. There is a $100 registration fee, which includes the uniform hat, jacket and shirt, a Tournament badge for the entire week, four meal tickets redeemable at all concession stands, preferred parking and shuttle transportation, and an invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party. Volunteers may also purchase up to four weekly grounds badges at a discounted $75 price (over 50% off). By charging a modest fee, the Heritage Classic Foundation is able to reduce overhead costs and help ensure that proceeds benefit local charities.
