The Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS, formerly the WGC Bridgestone Invitational has been a great supporter and partner of The First Tee of Greater Akron. The First Tee of Greater Akron is honored to be one of the tournament’s key charities this year. The Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS is in need of our help recruiting volunteers for the upcoming tournament. Information regarding Junior and Adult Volunteer Opportunities is below.

Junior Volunteers

Junior Volunteers (ages 13-18) serve in a variety of roles, many of which are on-course and close to the action. These include carrying leader standards for the players and assisting the scoring committee. Other tasks include helping with admissions and hospitality areas. Junior Volunteers receive tournament uniform T-Shirt, hat, and credential. There is no cost for junior volunteers.

For more information about junior volunteers, contact Nancy Musci at the tournament office.

There is mandatory Junior Volunteer orientation held on Sunday July 7, 2019 at 2:00pm in the Junior Volunteer Tent, located on the North Course, adjacent to the tunnel. We will review procedures, distribute uniforms, explain the drop off/pick up locations and answer any questions you may have at the time.



Adult Volunteers

Northern Ohio Golf Charities volunteers are in indispensable part of the overall effort required to put on a world-class professional golf tournament. Together with Bridgestone our title sponsor, PGA TOUR Champions, Westfield a founding partner, and Firestone CC, we help host the event which since 1984, has helped provide over $27 million for NE Ohio charities. Our adult volunteer team is comprised of 33 different committees, so there’s something for everyone. Adult volunteers pay a $75 fee, which goes toward the volunteer uniform, credential, and all the great volunteer events we have during tournament week. To learn more, you can visit us at
