Not necessarily, although it may be an advantage if you were to join the Volunteer Golf game after the event. Nevertheless, all volunteers should have some understanding of the game of golf. However, there are many roles available that do not require complete knowledge of the game.

The CIMB Classic will be organising a volunteer briefing for all registered volunteers on 7 October 2017 at TPC Kuala Lumpur Function Room at 9:00 a.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Attendance is compulsory. On Wednesday, 11 October at 10:00 a.m., there will be another briefing specifically for TV and scoring, as well as for those that did not attend the briefing on the 7th. 

All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age with the exception of Standard Bearers, as of 1 October 2017. 

Yes. All volunteers are required to wear the official CIMB Classic 2016 volunteer uniform, courtesy of J Lindeberg, while performing volunteer duties. Your volunteer uniform consists of plain shorts or pants (khaki/ black/ navy), comfortable shoes and the provided collared shirt. No jeans or board shorts allowed. While it may be tempting to wear visors or shirts from previous years, we ask that volunteers wear apparel ONLY with the Official CIMB Classic and SHOULD NOT wear their uniforms as spectators on "off-duty" days.

There are 2 parking options:

  1. Parking at Zone 4*
  2. Public Parking Zones where shuttles** will be provided: Jalan Bukit Kiara 1, Stadium Juara, Sime Darby Convention Centre and INTAN 

 

*Please ensure you have your volunteer credential and Zone 4 parking hangtag displayed at all times as it will grant you entry into the Zone 4 carpark. 

**Shuttles will start from 5:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from Thursday- Sunday of tournament week. 
Once your car is parked, please take the shuttle to the Volunteer Village Entrance at the Public Driving Range, there will be directional signs leading you to the Volunteer Check-in Counter. 

 

Volunteers are not allowed to ask players for their autographs while in uniform. However, at the end of the final day, we will have exclusive giveaways and limited autographed merchandise for lucky volunteers!

Changing committees are not encouraged but in situations that may affect your health or unforeseen circumstances, please ensure that you contact CIMB Classic’s Volunteer Chairman, Emma Pye. Our normal practice- for any committee change, the volunteer position relieved has to be replaced. This requires a new sticker with your name and new committee printed on your credential badge before you are allowed to go for duty.

Yes, everyone has breaks during their shifts - with the exception of On-Course marshals who are only allowed for toilet breaks as the tournament needs to go on. Timings of breaks are generally managed by discretion of the Committee Chairman, Hole Captains or the designated person in charge.
