Welcome to the PowerShares QQQ Championship Volunteer Website!

Dear Volunteer,

Thank you for your hard work and dedication in making the 2017 PowerShares QQQ Championship the best playoff events on the PGA TOUR Champions. Our goal is to provide you, our valued team member, with a first-class experience making this tournament as successful as possible to impact our deserving charity partners. As part of your efforts, the 2016 PowerShares QQQ Championship raised nearly $250,000 in its first year for local charities. Through the tournament’s partnership with our official charity, the Sherwood Cares Foundation, we directly make a difference with nearly 28 charitable organizations in the Conejo Valley and Ventura County region. It is with your help that we can expand the reach and impact of the PowerShares QQQ Championship in our community.

In response to your feedback, we will be making several new additions to better improve our overall experience. We have heard you! The staff at the PowerShares QQQ Championship has read all your comments and would like to thank you for taking the time to respond to our survey. After reviewing your comments, we feel confident that we can make positive changes to the following areas within the volunteer program:

 -    Bonus Golf: We have received a number of comments regarding making the Bonus Golf day available to volunteers that work three (3) days or more. We tried out the idea post tournament in 2017 event and we had success. Out of the total of 500 volunteers who participated as volunteers at the tournament, we have offered golf to over half (250 or more). Complimentary golf is our way to say thank you to all of the volunteers that worked hard to support the event prior to and during tournament week. We want to continue to gift this opportunity to those that work multiple days and give back to the event. 

 -    Volunteer Shuttle from Parking Lot:  We have received many comments regarding the stairs that were built from the parking lot allowing easy access to the golf course by cutting off the pedestrian traffic on the residential streets. Since the reviews were so mixed, we plan to add additional Volunteer Shuttles that will take volunteers form the parking to the Sherwood Country Club Clubhouse. Shuttles will run on Volunteer Uniform Pick Up days as well as Pro-Am days and throughout tournament week. Most of the concerns involved consistency with the shuttle schedule. While walking will remain the quickest way to reach the Sherwood Country Club Clubhouse and course, we are happy to provide this service throughout the day to help the volunteers who may need the additional support.

 -   Concessions: We have received a number of complaints that Levy Restaurants, our tournament concessionaire, continually ran out of food during tournament week and volunteers were unable to use their voucher to redeem hot items and breakfast items. We have spoken with Levy Restaurants and they have ensured that they will make a better effort to have hot items available to the volunteers throughout the day. Providing a basic menu that is consistent can help to ensure that volunteers are able to receive volunteer menu items in a timely manner.

Thank you in advance for your time and we look forward to working with you at the 2018 PowerShares QQQ Championship.
