Volunteers are required to wear khaki, white, or grey bottoms while volunteering. Women are permitted to wear shorts or golf skorts.

We ask that you wear comfortable shoes, since a majority of volunteers will be standing for long periods of time. Tennis shoes, for example, would be fine. Metal spikes are not permitted.

All volunteer committee assignments will be final once made available. We will attempt to assign each volunteer to one of his or her committee preferences; however, in many cases this will not be possible due to the requests for certain committees greatly outnumbering the staffing requirements of the committees.

Volunteers are expected to attend their respective volunteer training session which will generally take place on a weekend and last approximately one hour.

The 2025 U.S. Women’s Open Championship will require the assistance of more than 1,200 volunteers serving on 13 different committees. These committees cover a broad spectrum of responsibilities, including but not limited to: Marshaling, On-Course Operations, Scoring Functions, Fan Services and Merchandising.

Volunteers will be emailed availability information toward the beginning of 2025. We will use the information collected to create the volunteer schedules for each committee. You will be notified of the dates you are scheduled to volunteer in the spring of 2025. As always, we will make every effort to accommodate your availability preferences; however, we cannot guarantee that each request will be granted. If you are traveling from out of state and made travel arrangements, please indicate that on the form.

Volunteer availability forms will be sent out toward the beginning of the 2o25 calendar year. Volunteers can coordinate schedules with their spouse, family, friends, etc. and will be able to indicate the date and shifts they can volunteer on their availability form.

Training sessions will take place in May of 2025. Most training will be virtual, however some onsite training will be required based on your committee assignment. A presentation on both general volunteer and committee specific responsibilities will be shared with you in the Spring of 2025.

Generally, the biggest misconception about volunteering for the U.S. Women’s Open Championship is the timeframe in which an individual can register to volunteer. Since it is such a large event, the planning process begins years in advance of the championship. Volunteer registration will begin in the summer of 2024 when the application will be available online. For more information, please contact the USGA Championship Office at

As is the case with most major golf events, there will be a fee associated with the volunteer package for the U.S. Women’s Open. The volunteer fee for the 2025 U.S. Women’s Open Championship will be based on the package you select – either Eagle or Birdie. The fee does prove to be a worthwhile investment for someone who is not only interested in participating as a volunteer but is also interested in having the ability to attend the championship on a daily basis. The cost of volunteering covers the actual cost of the volunteer apparel specifically designed for the 2025 U.S. Women’s Open Championship, meal vouchers for each shift a volunteer is scheduled to volunteer and includes a credential valid for all days of the championship. The credential will serve as a ticket for admissions any day of the championship regardless of whether or not the volunteer is assigned to a shift.

As an integral part of the championship, volunteers are given the opportunity to communicate through day-to-day interactions with USGA staff or by completing a survey during and after the championship. In most cases, the results and comments are very positive. Often, volunteers will echo their sentiments towards the unique experience volunteering afforded them during the week of the championship and how exciting it was to be actively involved as part of such a historic event. In some instances, volunteers will provide constructive feedback on how to improve the volunteer experience. USGA staff thoroughly reads through each survey and takes into consideration all of the feedback, good and bad, in order to improve the volunteer program and experience for future championships.
