• For every 6 hours worked, the volunteer will be granted 2 free rounds of golf (18 holes with cart) that can be used at any time and by any person. So if you would like to bring a friend, you are welcome to do so.*
• Volunteer will be held accountable for time missed. If volunteer is absent from scheduled hours more than 2 times, he/she will no longer be considered for volunteer duties.
