At this time we are expecting to have a hot food vendor at each course during the National Championship event. We will also have a 'fly-mart' on site at Barnone for the players party.

They are offering our traveling players a special rate at all 4 of their PEI locations. The rates vary based on the hotel.

Volunteering:

As you can imagine this years event will require many hands to make it work. We will have 3 course running during the main event and plenty behind the scenes details to keep watch on. We need people to help spotting on the courses, keeping score on Udisc for the Open players, helping with parking, and set up for the vendor village. We have a volunteer package for any person who helps for 8 hours of more over the course of the week. If you are interested or know someone who may wish to volunteer during the week please fill out this form: Nationals Volunteer List

Spectating:

Which such a deep field of players for both the Am and Open side we know there will be a lot of interest in spectating. Every player who signs up for the event or volunteers for at least 8 hours will receive a lanyard that gets you free parking on site and unlimited access to spectating on the tournament courses. For non-players there will be a $20 parking fee per car to watch the Open players on their course each day. Weekend passes can be purchased for $35. There is no individual fee for people to watch the Open side, only a fee per car to park. All Am side courses are free to park at each day. Cash payments can be made in person or prepayment can be e-transfered to laughingbenjamin@gmail.com

Sponsoring:

We currently still have room for both small and medium sized sponsors for the event. Sponsorship packages start at $100 and up and we can offer listing in the digital caddy book, hole signs, and full commercials on GK and Central Coast coverage. For more information please email Benjamin Smith

We will have both GK Pro and Central Coast onsite to film the MPO and FPO cards as well as the extras listed above. This page will updated regularly with links
