About this event:
Golf in Northern Ireland and the Causeway Coast & Glens are set for a massive year ahead. The 148th Open is coming to Royal Portrush from the 14th -21st July 2019. This is the first time in almost 70 years that this iconic championship will return to Royal Portrush Golf Club.
The event presents a massive opportunity for the whole of Northern Ireland. There has been an unprecedented demand for tickets with all 4 championship days sold out, making it the first ever Open to sell out. There will be an unprecedented media focus, thousands of spectators, a global TV audience of millions and a terrific atmosphere of celebration.
Volunteer Ireland alongside Volunteer Now are recruiting motivated and enthusiastic volunteers who can bring an unrivaled visitor experience to the tournament and make this event truly unmissable. These Volunteers will be based in Connolly Station providing Information boarding trains to Portrush.
We are delighted to confirm that the event organisers, the R&A, have gifted a limited number of complimentary tickets for Championship Days. These will be for volunteers who have signed up and completed 4 shifts. Volunteer Now staff will verify that you have completed your agreed shifts before your ticket is issued. Eligible volunteers will collect their ticket from the Volunteer Hub in Portrush on the morning of their assigned day. There will be no exceptions to this.
*Please note shifts can be in any location to be eligible.
