VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY AT THE

2017 KARINGAL HUNDRED HOLE HIKE - FRIDAY 20TH JANUARY

Once again a dedicated group of golfers are going to be taking to the 13th Beach Golf Links at sunrise to start a day of walking 60 kms over 15 hours AND playing 100+ holes of golf to raise money for Karingal programs. 

This wonderful event is a truly inspiring day and involves much planning and requires many hands to make it a fabulous day for our golfers, our clients, their families and friends. 

We need volunteers to assist across a range of activities all day from 9am til 9pm.   Some of the roles include:

Caddies: If you know your golf and can easily walk 9-10 kms while carrying a golf bag or pushing a golf buggy this is the job for you.   A round of 18 holes takes about 90 mins but our golfers walk VERY fast. 

Front of house: during the day we have people arriving to see family members playing or to buy tickets for the Music to a Tee event in the evening.  You will be the first point of contact for anyone who walks in the front door and needs assistance.

Drink stations:  the golfers need to keep hydrated so there will be drink stations dotted around the course.  This will involve serving drinks and topping them up to keep them cool.  Ability to drive a golf buggy essential!

General hand:  sometimes we just need people to be ready to help out when it's needed.  Maybe some light lifting or helping a golfer with drinks or serving sandwiches - all sorts of little things.  Could be some standing around but as long as you have a smile on your face and are happy to be there, we would love you to be there too.

You will receive notification that you are registered and your time will be confirmed by email nearer to the event. 

Please direct any questions to sabinar@karingal.org.au
