Barbasol Launches 2022 Volunteer Registration

NICHOLASVILLE, KY (March 15, 2022) – The PGA TOUR Barbasol Championship announced today that volunteer registration for the 2022 event is now open at https://www.barbasolchampionship.com/volunteer/.

The Barbasol is coming off its best year since arriving in Kentucky in 2018 in terms of attendance, television viewership, and the overall excitement brought on by world-class play and a six-round sudden-death playoff that saw Seamus Power of Ireland edge J.T. Poston.

“More than 800 volunteers help bring the Barbasol Championship to life every year,” said Tournament Director Darren Nelson. “Our volunteers are the heartbeat of the Barbasol and allow us to allocate essential resources to the six local charities we’re supporting this year through Caddie127. We couldn’t do it without them or our Official Volunteer Sponsor – Commonwealth Credit Union.”

This year’s event will once again be played at the picturesque Champions at Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, Kentucky, just outside of Lexington.

Golf knowledge isn’t required to volunteer. The Barbasol Championship tournament has a variety of opportunities for golfers and non-golfers alike.
