Ecology Ottawa is running the Green Team at this year's Canadian Pacific Women's Open Golf Tournament! The Ladies Professional Golf Association will be teeing off late August at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club. Come join us to keep the grounds clean and green as thousands of fans gather to see the stars in action. We are looking for a group of committed volunteers to help make this week long event run without a hitch.
ABOUTSome of the world's best golfers, and stars of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour will light up the nation’s capital as Golf Canada and Canadian Pacific announced the 2017 CP Women’s Open at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club August 21-27, 2017 to coincide with Canada’s 150 year celebration.
This year, Ecology Ottawa has partnered with the Ecology Committee at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club to run the Green team for this event. The job includes the collection of garbage, litter, and recycling on course and sorting of returnable empties. We are excited to partner with a three time certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary with a commitment to environmental best practices.
Ecology Ottawa is making a strong team of dedicated volunteers to work throughout the week. Attend an information session to learn more about the position and coordinate availability, sign up to hear about the next session.
Before the event we will be hosting Orientation sessions on site, at the Hunt & Golf Club the evening of Friday August 18 and the morning of Saturday August 19. It is mandatory to attend one of these times, as we will be going over golf etiquette and setting up the course for Monday morning. There are three shift times each day from Monday August 21 to Sunday August 27, with a larger group Thursday through Sunday as the crowd grows for the Championship rounds. On Monday and Thursday of the following week a small crew will help tear-down and clean-up.
Volunteering for this event will be a lot of fun, and opportunities are available for folks of all ages (16+). And yes, volunteering for the CP Women's Open Green Clean-up Team can count towards your high school volunteer requirement! As an added bonus, if you love golf there will be ample opportunity to see some of this high level competition.
