FAQs

Where should I park on days that I serve as a Volunteer?

The Volunteer Lot is located in Greensboro off High Point Road (at the old Jefferson Pilot Building). Turn into the second entrance of JP Lot. Please check back later for a map.

Your credentials permit you to ride the Volunteer shuttle on days that you are working. The Volunteer shuttle operates daily from 5:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (or 30 minutes after play ends) between the Volunteer Lot and the Volunteer Pavilion on course. Please allow yourself 45 minutes to park, ride shuttle to Volunteer Pavilion, check in and get to your assignment.

weatherwarningWeather/Evacuation

In conjunction with the PGA TOUR, the Tournament has an inclement weather policy in place. There are three levels of weather conditions which will be indicated on scoreboards throughout the course:
1. Evacuation Watch – Conditions are very favorable for severe weather to form. If this alert is posted, only get involved in tasks that will allow you to get away quickly if we proceed to the next level.
2. Evacuation Warning – Conditions are degenerating and there is a high probability that play will be stopped.
3. Evacuation in Effect – The PGA TOUR has suspended play. Seek shelter immediately.

Should weather conditions cancel play for all or a major portion of a day, the final round may be on Monday, August 19, 2013. If this is the case, the Wyndham Championship will be seeking Volunteers to assist on Monday. Alternatively, the PGA TOUR may limit the tournament to 54 holes. You will be advised of the PGA TOUR’s decision.
