The backbone of The Bridgestone Invitational!


August 2 - August 6, 2017. The Bridgestone Invitational is looking for interested individuals who enjoy golf and giving back to the community. It takes over 1,100 volunteers that comprise 34 committees to run the Bridgestone Invitational. These committees are responsible for everything from greeting our patrons at the gate to transporting players and dignitaries to and from the airport. The working hours that the volunteers provide have enabled Northern Ohio Golf Charities to give back more than $26 million to charities in Northeast Ohio since 1984.

Committee Assignments: You may choose three committee preferences, but you will only be placed on one committee. We cannot guarantee assignments, but will make every effort to accommodate your preference. Read the on-line Committee Descriptions at to understand the time commitment for certain committees. Please keep in mind that generally a minimum of 4 shifts is required. Shift length varies for each committee but is generally 6-10 hours, with each committee determining the timing and length of a shift. With some committees you may be able to work 2 shifts in one day.

Volunteer Package: For a donation of $75, each volunteer will receive a Tournament shirt, Men’s baseball cap, women’s choice of visor or baseball cap, weekly Grounds Badge for each volunteer, free parking, continental breakfast and lunch voucher for each shift.
