The tournament is played on both the North and South courses of Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, CA.
Volunteers are mainly required Wednesday-Sunday of tournament week, but assistance is needed before and after the tournament. If there is a delay, play may continue on Monday, which will require some volunteers.
Depending on your committee assignment, the average day is 6-8 hours long. Some positions require longer days, and you will be notified ahead of time to make any special arrangements.
We currently have about 1,000 volunteers that help run the Farmers Insurance Open, but we could always use an extra hand! There is no set number of volunteers required to run the tournament. Volunteers are needed for all the committees. The Marshals are the largest committee and is always looking for additional members. We also have a need for volunteers on the following committees: ShotLink Laser Team, Ambassadors, Mobile Device Committee as well as a few others.
